Last Shop Standing is a collaboration between award winning feature film company Blue Hippo Media www.bluehippomedia.com and Proper Music Publishing Ltd.
Based on the successful book by Graham Jones of the same name, "Last Shop Standing" will be a 60-minute documentary to be released in the summer of 2012. It will be a celebration of the unique spirit of comradeship and entrepreneurial ingenuity that has enabled so many shops to keep operating successfully against the backdrop of massive changes in the music industry, the biggest recession in years, the growth of online file sharing, and the explosion of choice in music consumption.
