Surfwise movie trailer - Directed by Doug Pray. Theatrical Release Date: 5/9/2008
LEVITATED MASS is Doug Pray's new documentary about a two-story tall, 340-ton, granite boulder that was moved from a quarry in Riverside to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and mounted atop the walls of a gigantic slot in the earth. The massive artwork, titled Levitated Mass, is the latest 'land sculpture' by one of America's most exciting and misunderstood artists, Michael Heizer. Heizer's sculpture references the expanse of art history -- from ancient traditions of megalithic stones to modern forms of abstract geometries and cutting-edge feats of engineering.
The boulder's 105-mile journey from quarry to museum attracted international media attention and challenged the imagination of thousands of Southern Californians over 10 nights as it crawled through 22 cities on a football-field length, 206-wheeled trailer. The film captures this spectacle while weaving together the dramatic story of the reclusive Heizer, the ambitions of a major metropolitan museum, and the public's wild reactions to this massive display of modern yet eerily timeless conceptual art.
A rookie private eye and his team put together a plan to rescue a kidnapped computer hacker who downloaded something he shouldn't have.

Infamy -- Take an intense journey into the dangerous lives and obsessed minds of six of America's most prolific graffiti artists. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Doug Pray (Hype! and Scratch) who teamed up with writer, publisher, and graffiti guru Roger Gastman, the movie takes you deep into the world of street legends Saber, Toomer, Jase, Claw, Earsnot and Enem. With brutal honesty, humor and charisma, these artists reveal why they are so willing to risk everything to spray paint their cities with 'tags,' 'throwups' and full-color murals. You'll also meet Joe 'The Graffiti Guerilla' Connolly, a notorious 'buffer' who paints out graffiti on his neighborhood's walls with a vengeance matched only by those who vandalized them. From the streets of the South Bronx to the solitude of a San Francisco tunnel, from high atop a Hollywood billboard to North Philadelphia for a lesson in 'Philly-style tags,' from the Mexican border to a Cleveland train yard, Infamy doesn't analyze or glorify graffiti... it takes you there and brings it to life.
