Background:

Died Young Stayed Pretty is the first full length documentary feature from filmmaker Eileen Yaghoobian.  The movie delves into the world of concert poster artists, and was a project that occupied almost 5 years of her life, most of it on the road.   Eileen self-financed the bulk of the project, which led to her actually staying with the artists she profiled.  Although born of financial necessity this close proximity to her subjects allowed her to capture on film not only the artists at work, but also a level of intimacy that provides a real insight into their creative process.   Edited together from over 250 hours of footage, Died Young Stayed Pretty is a 94-minute journey through the North American concert poster scene, narrated entirely by the artists themselves.
