“Pretending I’m a Super Man: The Tony Hawk Video Game Story” Has Made It’s Film Festival Premiere
Skateboarders and gamers rejoice! “Pretending I’m a Super Man: The Tony Hawk Video Game Story” has finally premiered over the weekend at the Mammoth Film Festival in California, bringing the long awaited documentary that much closer to peoples homes. The documentary has been in the works since 2016 and is about not only the beloved video game franchises’ success but how the game helped the sport of skateboarding along with what came before the game.
The creation of this documentary is all thanks to Ralph, D’Amato who worked for game developer Neversoft , who helped make the series. D’Amato was part of Neversoft from the first game up until Tony Hawk’s Project 8. The documentary will feature skateboarders who were in the game including Tony Hawk, Jamie Thomas, Eric Koston, Rodney Mullen and more. The documentary’s name was influenced by Goldfinger’s “Superman,” the first song on the soundtrack of the first Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater game. D’Amato received help from Swedish filmmaker Ludvig Gür and will hopefully be released in the next coming months. Stay tuned for more information.
