Although Tony Hawk is an icon within the skating industry, he also made his mark in gaming at the turn of the century with the first installment of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. It sold nine million copies following its release and furthered the groundswell of skating during its time.

This upcoming documentary Pretending I’m A Superman will tell the story of the developers behind the game who came together and created history. Produced in association with The Berrics, the film will follow former Neversoft producer Ralph D’Amato and Swedish director Ludvig Gür during the creation of the documentary, and will share the story of the game’s influence on gaming and skateboarding through various interviews with Rodney Mullen, Steve Caballero, Chad Muska, and Hawk himself.

Pretending I’m A Superman is set to have its world premiere at Mammoth Film Festival in Mammoth Lakes, CA on February 29. It will include a panel discussion and after party featuring a performance by The Downhill Jam playing hits from the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater soundtrack.
