Tony Hawk Pro Skater documentary lives on despite lack of funding
The crowdfunding campaign for the upcoming Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater documentary Pretending I’m a Superman recently came to a close, and it fell well short of the goal which had been set. However, the team behind the documentary has announced that production will continue regardless.
After the 30-day Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for the documentary ended, it had only raised $17,409 of its $75,000 goal. In an open letter which it posted on Twitter, the documentary’s production team said that it never intended to rely fully on the Indiegogo campaign for funding and that the documentary will live on regardless, it just might take a little longer to make:
"Our plan was never to entirely rely on an Indiegogo campaign. If we could have received the full sum, the process of making the documentary may have gone faster, but we are in it for the long or short haul regardless. Multiple sponsors have shown great interest and because of that we'll be able to continue."
The documentary’s Indiegogo page states that it will be released by fall, 2018. Whether the lack of funding from the campaign will affect that timetable remains to be seen.
