D.I.Y America is a documentary web series focusing on the rise of punk, graffiti, and street art. Created by the producers of the feature documentary Beautiful losers, the series contains interviews and footage shot for the film, but never used. This includes full profiles of street artists like Swoon, a female wheat paste master, and larger explorations into movement's influences. Featuring interviews from several major players in the D.I.Y. scene: Ian McKaye of Minor Threat and Fugazi, Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth, legendary punk photographer Glen Friedman, and street art empresario Shepard Fairey. Together, they chronicle the progress of D.I.Y. from a bunch of American kids hanging out in the late 80's to a group of artist featured in galleries and museums worldwide.
