Touch Wood: Wood Entertainment drops in with Pro Skater Tony Hawk in August

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent

Who else was a skateboarder in their misspent youth? Once a skater, always a skater, and this new Tony Hawk documentary set for 9/18 is "rad" as they used to say in the skate parks. If you don't know who Tony Hawk is, then a quick spin around any search engine will reveal the mystique of this self-made boarder. Hawk is also the guy who jumps off his kitchen counter on a custom-tuned skateboard for grins. Now this billion-dollar game-franchise frontman is the subject of PRETENDING I’M A SUPERMAN – THE TONY HAWK VIDEO GAME STORY from Wood Entertainment. Hawk says, “PRETENDING I'M A SUPERMAN is a robust, real-life story of our successful video game series as told by those who created it, and many who were inspired by it." How radical is that, read on for the official download.

LOS ANGELES, CA: Wood Entertainment just announced the August 18 digital/VOD release of the highly awesome documentary entitled PRETENDING I’M A SUPERMAN – THE TONY HAWK VIDEO GAME STORY.

Wood Entertainment acquired Worldwide rights to the film in May at the Mammoth Film Festival in a deal negotiated between CEO Tara Wood and Producer Ralph D’Amato (“Tony Hawk Pro Skater” series, “Gun”) on behalf of D’Amato Productions.

Arriving just ahead of the eagerly-awaited reboot of the $1.4 billion Tony Hawk Pro Skater video game series coming this September, this definitive documentary from Director Ludvig Gür tells the story of skater turned video game mogul Tony Hawk, and the near extinction of skateboarding culture before exploding back into the mainstream in the early 2000s.

"I’m really excited to partner with Wood Entertainment” said director Gür. “It’s been a long journey making the documentary and I’m stoked it will finally be released for skateboarding and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater fans worldwide. The art form and video game had an enormous impact on Generation Y/Z and the story behind it is even more fascinating.”

In 1999, the video game Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater shook the world when it sold 9 million copies upon release and changed the skateboarding scene forever. Pretending I’m a Superman is the story of the skaters and developers who came together to create the best-selling game as well as a look into how skateboarding became a part of the mainstream.

Featuring never-before-seen footage and interviews with the legendary skater Tony Hawk as well as industry stars interviews with Steve Caballero, Rodney Mullen, Chad Muska, and Jamie Thomas, Gür takes audiences through an intimate yet extraordinary journey, chronicling the meteoric rise of skate boarding’s most famous name.

“Tony Hawk has one of the most inspiring stories ever told, from groundbreaking skater to gaming mogul” said Wood. “We are thrilled to present it to its worldwide audience."

 

WHO IS WOOD ENTERTAINMENT?

Wood Entertainment is a worldwide distribution company. Its current release is QT8: THE FIRST EIGHT, the authorized Quentin Tarantino documentary, available now on all major digital platforms.
