Bones Brigade: An Autobiography Teaser
These were the first idols we had. The legendary Bones Brigade. Tony Hawk, Lance Mountain, Mike McGill, Steve Caballero, Tommy Guerrero, and Rodney Mullen. These were icons of the 80's skate scene, and to this day we get giddy when we reminisce. We can draw all their pro model decks from memory, we can recite dialogue, despite it being corny and poorly acted, from the eponymous "The Search for Animal Chin," which ended up being the prototype for the skate film. Therefore, you'll have to understand that we are extremely excited that the patriarch and creator of the Brigade, Stacy Peralta, who also happens to be the documentary film maker that brought us the excellent surf/skate doc "Dog Town and Z-Boys," has finally made a documentary film covering the decade that the Bones Brigade were together. Above, we've posted a short clip, a teaser if you will, from the film covering skateboarding's golden age. We are unable to report a theatrical or DVD release date as of yet, as info on the project is pretty limited. We can say this; it premiered in Santa Barbara a couple of weeks ago, and we imagine you'll be able to plunk yourself in a theatre or couch very shortly for a look. For now, watch the teaser above, and/or hit the jump and see the video from the premiere from TransWorld Skateboarding Magazine. Also, of note, and for fred purposes, the film was chosen as an Official Selection for the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.
