Three years in the making, Nothing But the Truth is the story of the Nike SB team, on and off their skateboards. After traveling the world to gather footage, in October 2006, the Nike SB team decided it was time to set the record straight. Filmed on location in the Santa Clarita Valley of Southern California and set to an original soundtrack composed by Mark Mothersbaugh, the Nike SB riders teamed up with the Belgian director duo Lionel Goldstein to tell the whole truth and Nothing But the Truth.
Think skateboard film rather than skateboard video. The team was given carte blanche to pitch their story. In the story line the skaters would write and direct a film about a “truth” in their lives. What unfolded can be left to interpretation, but has been described by Daniel Shimizu as “Awkward and kinda scary.” Whether it’s Todd Jordan’s attempt at making a “film about women and me” or Omar Salazar’s tragic vomiting story, you will be sure to see a new side to the Nike SB team.
Since the re-launch of Nike Skateboarding in 2003 the team has grown to be one of the most diverse and interesting collective of skaters in the world of skateboarding, and the film will feature riding from the entire team, including Paul Rodriguez, Brian Anderson, Gino Iannucci, Stefan Janoski, Omar Salazar, Chet Childress, Reese Forbes, Todd Jordan, Daniel Shimizu, Danny Supa, Wieger Van Wageningen, Lance Mountain, Grant Taylor, Lewis Marnell, Dan Murphy and Clark Hassler.
The DVD will be out in Nike SB retailers on October 27th.
