Harrod Blank's Automorphosis - Amazing art car movie now showing

Harrod Blank's art car movie Automorphosis is now out and will be shown in selected theaters around the country. This is the most amazing and inspiring look into the minds and hearts of those of us out there who build and drive these works of mobile art called art cars. The movie is a humorous and touching journey as we discover what drives these cast of unconventional characters in their creative process. Some of the cars featured in this movie will be: The Camera Van, The Telephone Car , Salvation Mountain. In fact the whole reason art car central is here today is because of Harrod's book wild wheels that inspired me to create the Mercedes Pens art car and then on to create this blog. So I am very excited about this movie and want the world to know about it.

The other big news is that David Silberberg's film about Harrod life and career, "Oh My God, It's Harrod Blank!" is going to have it's World Premiere at the Slamdance Film Festival in Park City Utah January 16th.
