Tony Hawk game franchise documentary needs your help to see the light of day
And by the looks of it, it would need all the help if can get.
The Tony Hawk video game franchise may be in hiatus following the game’s license expiration back in 2015, and also the steady decline in reception with its most recent releases, but producer Ralph D’Amato is still betting on nostalgia, and the series legacy to pull off his newest project titled Pretending I’m a Superman: The Tony Hawk Video Game Story.
Yup, D’Amato, who was also a former producer of Tony Hawk Pro Skater titles during the Neversoft era, plans to tell the story behind the “one of the most successful video game franchises ever” but first, he needs funding, and what better way to earn the said funding by putting up the project on IndieGoGo.
The documentary hopes to feature exclusive interviews with legendary skateboarders such as Rodney Mullen and Tony Hawk himself, together with the people that were involved in the game franchise such as retired game producer Scott Pease, and even YOU, if you donate USD 5,000 to unlock that perk that is.
Pretending I’m a Superman: The Tony Hawk Video Game Story hopes to raise USD 75,000 and is now sitting at only around USD 8,000, which is barely 10% of the overall goal, albeit it still has a month to go before the campaign ends.
