Bones Brigade

Stacy Peralta hat sich als Promo für seine kommende Doku „Bones Brigade: An Autobiography“ mit µtorrent zusammengeschmissen, veröffentlicht dort seinen ersten Skatefilm „The Search for Animal Chin“ und so wie ich das verstanden habe, wird er die Bones-Doku ebenfalls später über Bittorrent online stellen. Super! Außerdem gibt's noch ein paar Ausschnitte und Wallpaper und Schnickschnack. Von Wired:

Bones BrigadeFor years, underground skateboarding documentary The Search for Animal Chin made the rounds on VHS, carried on the wheels of deck-riders everywhere. Now filmmaker Stacy Peralta is releasing his 1980s skate-culture touchstone as a free download through BitTorrent. The film, which came out in 1987 and features interviews with now-famous skaters like Tony Hawk and Tommy Guerrero, is being released as part of a bundle on the file-sharing service to commemorate the release of Peralta’s latest documentary, The Bones Brigade: An Autobiography.

The new film shredded Sundance this year, and Peralta is now releasing Bones Brigade online. Coupling his new documentary with a free BitTorrent release of his ’80s cult classic seems only proper — if not a downright perfect complement to the skate-punk roots of both films.

“I decided not to do a traditional distribution network around this film to help control the copyright and maintain ownership of the asset,” Peralta said in an email to Wired. “I opted to partner with BitTorrent as it’s more in the independent film world and it comes with a great audience base.”

Ich hab' den Film auch komplett auf Metacafe gefunden, außerdem zwei frühe Bones Video Shows von 1984, beides nach dem Klick.
