Inventor Of 1,000 Skateboard Tricks Todd Falcon Releasing Film That Took 32 Years To Make
The unbelievable project started way back in 1984 when Todd Falcon heard a voice in his head.
Some of the best things in life take time to create (see fine wine and whisky). Some things in life take over three decades to create. Take cult skateboarder Todd Falcon's new film, for example. It's called 'Skateboarding Revelations: Journey To The Final Level', and it's been in production for a whole 32 years.
Falcon, who's avian surname is a tribute to Tony Hawk (aka The Birdman), is known in the skateboarding world for his eccentricity, his crazy YouTube videos, the 'Falcon Slide' that appeared on Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4, and his claim to have invented more original skateboarding tricks than anyone else in history.
He's gone on record and described himself as a mixture between Rodney Mullen and Tony Hawk (two skaters he greatly admires), and spends most of his time cooking up tricks in his garage. The trailer for his new film, which is trippier than a trip-wire at a magic mushroom convention, gives a fascinating insight into the man himself and immediately moves this to the top of our most anticipated movies list.
“You have to invent at least 1,000 original tricks. You have to create all new levels of skateboarding that never existed before. You have to reach the final level of skateboarding. That’s what the voice said to me," Falcon says during the trailer. Yeah, we definitely want to see this. It looks crazy, in the best kind of way.
