Bones Brigade: An Autobiography, at Sundance Film Festival

Bones Brigade An Autobiography, Dogtown & Z-Boys, Sundance Film Festival,  Riding Giants, Made in America, Stacy Peralta, Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero, Rodney Mullen, Lance Mountain, Tommy Guerrero, Mike McGill, Powell-Peralta
Stacy said that “I was really fortunate in finding an editor for this film, Josh Altman, who was very strong and
had a good sense of story, because there were certain aspects of this story I really had to turn over to him
because of me being in the film and not feeling like I could make the appropriate decisions.”
Today, via his Twitter account, Tony Hawk was the first to announce that the Sundance Film Festival was including Stacy Peralta's new film "Bones Brigade: An Autobiography" as one of eight out-of-competition documentary films getting their world premiere during the 2012 festival, which will be held January 19 through 29 in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden, and Sundance, Utah. The documentary reunites the old Powell-Peralta Bones Brigade skateboard team: Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero, Rodney Mullen, Lance Mountain, Tommy Guerrero, Mike McGill, and many more old Pro Skateboarders and look back on a essential moment in skateboard history. Those who were at the International SkateBoard Film festival in Hollywood in October have already seen a good 10mn of the documentary, some others have had the opportunity to be on the stage one day here and there (and take a couple of pix). The documentary is not shrouded in secrecy (not at all), but well kept behind closed doors.

"Lance Mountain called me and said: -Look, we really want to do this. We're now older than you and Tony Alva 
were when you made Dogtown." Stacy Peralta in Transworld Skateboarding Dec 2011
It is not the first time that Stacy Peralta is presenting movies at The Sundance Festival: "Dogtown & Z-Boys to Sundance was featured there in 2001, then "Riding Giants" and "Made in America” followed suit. But even before “Dogtown and the Z-Boys”, Stacy was filming skateboarders. It all started around 1984 when Powell-Peralta company though making a video of the crew was a good idea. They made "The Bones Brigade Video Show" thinking they would distribute 100 of them to prod shop around California but they ended up selling more than 30,000 of them. In an interview to ESPN, Stacy remembers that “We had skateboard shops calling us from all over the world, literally, saying, 'You just don't realize what these videos are doing. You've got to make one of these every year, because it's rising the tide.

The plot behind of "Bones Brigade: An Autobiography": is the following: When six teenage boys came together as a skateboarding team in the 1980s, they reinvented not only their chosen sport but themselves too — as they evolved from insecure outsiders to the most influential athletes in the field.

Lance Mountain, Steve caballero, Rodney Mullen, Tommy Guerrero, Mike McGill. Those guys were just a bunch of 13
 year old kids getting paid good money and having great opportunities month-after-month and year-after-year. After
the Bones Brigade disintegrated, they went on to lasting success in the skateboard industry or in other pursuits…
