Made You Look is a documentary about the UK DIY graphic arts scene of the 21st century. Via candid interviews with top British creatives, publishers and agency owners the film explores the fact that more people than ever seem to be turning to analogue means of creating things, even though we are living at the height of the digital era. Sam Arthur, Adrian Johnson, Kate Moross, and Anthony Burril are just a few of  the folks featured in this fine film.

Made You Look is due for limited theatrical release in 2015. For more info visit the official website.
