This upcoming September 4th is a big date for people with a knack for skating. The reason is
because this very day Activation will go ahead with the release of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2
A completely new generation now gets an insight into the most successful game franchises. It is
not all and a documentary “Pretending I Am Superman” is also on the verge of release.  It is
GameSpots’s sister site CBS news, which has been the first to leak such information. They spoke
to the producers extensively on the project and the huge rise, fame of the series. 
There is an experienced hand running the show and it has been created by producer Ralph D’
Amato of Neversoft fame. The direction lies in the safe hands of Ludvig Gur. Let us talk about
‘Pretending I Am Superman” and the news leak is that it is a crowd funded documentary.
Gur had begun work on it a long time ago and at the tender age of 18. Tony Hawk agreed to
participate instantly and it did not require any form of pushing. Let us now discuss the content
matter of the film and it is interesting for skaters. 
The content of the film mainly focuses on the early days of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater franchises.
This film shows as to how this man has influenced a generation of players to don the mantle of
skaters. In fact, in this film, one will come across interviews with top skating legends and on the
list is Hawk himself.

There is also an interview of Rodney Mullen, another renowned name from the world of
skating. Mullen has a skating style, which is different from Hawk. It is over the years Hawk has
made the vert form of skating popular. It involves extensive use of half pipes for crazy flips.
On the contrary Mullen can be largely credited to making street themes popular. This form of
skating involves more of grinds, ollies and plenty more of such similar tricks. The film is sure to
be a delight for skaters and fans are eagerly waiting for the release.
