BitTorrent to Distribute Skate Film28 Aug, 2012 By: Chris Tribbey
Peer-to-peer file-sharing technology company BitTorrent has been chosen to distribute the skate film The Search for Animal Chin 25 years after it first debuted.
Thanks to a partnership with director and professional skateboarder Stacy Peralta, this will be the first time The Search for Animal Chin has been officially distributed online. The film is being released as a free download in celebration of the film’s 25th anniversary as well as the October release of the skateboarding documentary Bones Brigade: An Autobiography, also directed by Peralta.
The Search for Animal Chin was one of the first skate films with a plot and stars one of the world’s top skate teams, the Bones Brigade, which includes Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero, Mike McGill, Lance Mountain and Tommy Guerrero.
BitTorrent will also offer high-def trailers, wallpapers, graffiti stencils, music from Guerrero and more bonuses for free at featuredcontent.utorrent.com.
