Mike Curb And The Sidewalk Sounds Skaterdater CD
Skaterdater is a 1965 film produced by Marshal Backlar, written / directed by Noel Black and distributed by United Artists. It was the Palme d'Or winner for Best Short Film at the 1966 Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Short Subject category. It also won first prizes in international film festivals in Moscow and Venice and was the first film on skateboarding.
Skaterdater has had lasting cultural relevance in the film industry. It has been the subject of scholarly articles on cinematography and The Huffington Post included it in a list of 15 films every entrepreneur must see. David O'Russell, award-winning director of Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle and The Fighter, has credited Skaterdater as a reason for his initial interest in Film. The Academy Film Archive preserved Skaterdater in 2010.
The film tells a story with no dialogue about a group of skaters who are suddenly at a turning point after one of them sees a young girl and becomes interested in her causing a rift within the group. The skaters were members of the neighborhood Imperial Skateboard Club from Torrance, California and included Gary Hill, Gregg Carroll, Mike Mel, Bill McKaig, Gary Jennings, Bruce McKaig and Rick Anderson.
The surf rock-esque soundtrack was composed by Mike Curb and Nick Venet.
