FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
“Dragonslayer”, featuring ADDIKT Skateboard’s Josh “Skreech” Sandoval, wins Best Film and Best Cinematography documentary awards at the 2011 SWSX Film Conference & Festival
Venice, CA March 16th, 2011 – After being touted by The Documentary Blog as one of its “Top 10 Docs to Look Out For in 2011”, “Dragonslayer” received the Grand Jury Winner and Best Cinematography honors at last night’s SWSX Film Festival awards ceremony.
Dragonslayer follows ADDIKT Skateboard’s Josh “Skreech” Sandoval as he navigates the suburban flotsam and jetsam of California’s foreclosure debacle, which includes skateboarding, love, drugs, and stray glimpses of unusual beauty.
Skreech was skating at an undisclosed location in the San Joaquin Valley area and was unavailable for comment.
Billy Runaway, a creative consultant for the film, was quoted as saying, “Major congrats to award winners Tristan Patterson and Eric Koretz. This film’s skate scenes are some of most realistic portrayals of what skateboarding is actually like for hardcore skaters – skateboarding is a lifestyle, not some bulls*** media event like you see on TV. These guys found great characters/real skaters in the form of Skreech and Josh “Peacock” Henderson and were willing to roll up their sleeves, get dirty, and show these guys doing what they live for, and I think the results speak for themselves. Peacock also happens to be a great filmer and backyard pool expert in his own right, which really helped when it came to filming some of the skate scenes.”
