Stacy, Rodney, CAB, Tony, MIke, Lance and Tommy will be working on a Bones Brigade Documentary starting in February 2011.
On Monday, November 29th at Los Angeles International Airport, seven individuals that have had an extreme influence on skateboarding sat down to discuss work on a documentary of their experience. They met at the Encounter restaurant in the middle of the airport to begin work on this monumental film.
Stacy wrote, "Those skaters known as the Bones Brigade are now old enough to take a look back. At a time in the 80's when many people were mourning the second death of skateboarding, the Bones Brigade through passion, drive, creativity and a surprising sense of teamwork redefined the sport for their time and the future".
Documentary filmmaker, Stacy Peralta in a new film with Tony Hawk, Lance Mountain, Steve Caballero, Mike McGill, Rodney Mullen, Tommy Guerrero and others will investigate the history, the team and the men to determine what is the legacy of the Bones Brigade. "Five years ago the guys got together and told me they wanted to do this. They believed they had a significant story others would want to know about. So now we're going to see."
Simultaneously, a Powell-Peralta coffee table book is in the works. It will include the Bones Brigade, but also other things you knew and didn't know about Powell-Peralta.
Play these 2 at the same time and mute the volume on one of them:

just started skating again after 6 years off, and it has been amazing.
Is anyone else slightly dismayed when seeing young skate crews on sessions and they seem far more interested in filming themselves rather than actually skating?
I skated for years, still love to see what's happening at various spots in London; but it seems kid 1 will be shooting kid 2 attempt a stair trick or whatever, they then both spend 10 mins looking at replays on their camera/phone. Repeat ad nauseum.
I'm all for getting footage together, maybe in the hope of getting sponsored but it seems to be getting in the way of actually enjoying the pure joy of skateboarding. Have we lost the art of shredding? It's EVERY time I run across skaters about town.
It wasn't like that in my day etc etc, perhaps I became

Not at all. One of the great things about filming is going home and watching how it came out. You should appreciate when things are documented for all to see. Its a little disheartening if that's the ONLY reason why they skate, but even if they're skating and filming everything, you have to appreciate the passion. right?
I remember when i was little and wish there was a tv channel that had a live cam on emb all day. that time is basically here. that camera may be in the form of another kid w a cam, but the ability to put it online right away is great. it's kind of awesome.
