Art of the Prank Director’s Update #1

I’m Andrea Marini, director of Art of the Prank, the seminal feature documentary about artist Joey Skaggs. I’m super happy to announce that the film is in the final stages of post production! I’m starting this blog to give updates about our progress as we get ready to launch this incredible labor of love out into the world.

It’s been an amazing experience working with Joey over the last three years as well as with so many exceptionally talented people who have come on board to bring this project to life. The film has been hilarious and poignant and truly inspiring to make. We can’t wait to share it with you.

It should be finished by mid-September. We’ve begun hearing from film festivals and we’re planning some fun screenings for the Fall.

In the meantime, in Rome, sound mixer Sandro Rossi is making the film sound GREAT! And, in Milan, composer Philip Abussi has just delivered the final music tracks while color artist Massimo Loiacono is making magic with the visuals.

Join us and stay tuned for more details about the production and about how you can see the film. We’d love you to become part of the ground swell of people who want to help us spread the word about this amazing project!
