Some Filmmakers Actually Got Into Lisa Frank's Base of Operations, Made It Out Alive

Posted By on Mon, Sep 9, 2013 at 9:00 AM

"The World of Lisa Frank" - A Short Film from Scott Ross on Vimeo.

Reclusive artist, business woman and queen sitting upon an undoubtedly rainbow-and-sparkle covered throne Lisa Frank actually allowed filmmakers to enter Lisa Frank world headquarters in Tucson, where she sat down for an interview on just exactly what it's like being Lisa Frank. (Spoiler: She's crazy. I mean, she says it in the video. Really. Probably more "wacky aunt" than "volatile nutjob" though.)

Interestingly enough, the filmmakers purport this to be one of the first (if not THE first) video or audio interview that Lisa Frank has agreed to, though she appears on camera in only silhouette form...and possibly a glimpse of her wrist.

The film was financed by Urban Outfitters, who apparently signed a contract with Frank to slap all of her vintage designs onto merchandise, so look out for that next time you've got a lot of money to throw at overpriced faux-vintage items when you're shopping on University Boulevard.
