SK8FACE | SKATEBOARD ART MOVIE
Where did skateboard graphics come from? How did they evolve? Meet the masters who changed the face of Art History and Skateboard Evolution. If you like grip tape, paint markers, pens, pencils, pools, curbs, ledges, concrete, plywood, power tools, sawdust, grinding, art, design, photography, music, film, video, xeroxes, silk screening, spray paint, urethane, sealed bearings, going fast, old school, new school, making stuff or skating stuff, you have arrived…
Here’s the pitch of that “very” ambitious documentary about Skateboard Artists & graphics, the movie is still in production as the guys behind the project are in possession of an amount of materials to choose from and cut….
I don’t know how you can compact in a 90 minutes film so many things to talk about but as i can see they’re already on point and put the finishing touch.
The Cast line-up is pretty impressive and the names speak by themselves : C.R. Stecyk, Wes Humpston, Neil Blender, Mark Gonzales, VCJ, Tony Hawk, Steve Rocco, Andy Howell, Natas Kaupas, Marc McKee, Sean Cliver, Paul Schmitt, Hosoi, Lance Mountain, John Lucero, Chris Miller, Jim Phillips…and so many more.
Damm! they found VCJ and interviewed him, that guy is like “nowhere” on the net, no picts, no infos, nothing, just is amazing work he did for Powell-Peralta in the 80’s and some more rescent for Pocket Pistols. A true legend. For all Sk8 Graphics lovers, that film will be like the Sean Cliver bibles “Disposable I & II”.
Even the dvd cover is done by Wes Humpston, you cant front!!!…But it’s enough talking this movie will be mad!…Just an extract from Marc McKee interview, the man behind the World industry Graphics: He did more than 600 GRAPHICS in his entire carreer!!!!!!!.
