Videograf Productions was the first group to produce a recurring video series on the graffiti scene. Most films on graffiti up to this point were traditional documentaries. Videograf Productions used a video magazine format to profile graffiti artist and graffiti bombers. At the time, most people documenting urban culture tended to be from outside the culture so what made The Videograf series unique was that it was produced by active and former graffiti writers.
