Emmy-Winner Peewee Piemonte to Direct 3D Film Skate God
One of Hollywood’s leading stunt coordinators, two-time Emmy-winner, Peewee Piemonte ( SouthLAnd ), will be making his directorial debut with the Dystopian skateboarding 3D film Skate God, with Esti Ginzburg ( Twelve ) onboard as the female lead.
Skate God is an original story and screenplay by Alexander Garcia, a retired professional skateboarder now screenwriter and producer. This marks the first skateboarding action hero film with plans to launch a comic book series.
The story centers around a skateboarder in a Dystopian world who discovers he is a scion of a Greek god and is plunged into a battle with a clandestine society hell bent on overtaking humankind.

“A film like this is every action director’s dream….a little Mad Max and a lot of Hellraiser ! I look forward to putting the same actor driven action on this film as I do on SouthLAnd,” said Peewee Piemonte.
The project is being produced under Alexander Garcia’s Multi-Valence Productions banner alongside Impact Motion Pictures with a targeting date in late summer in New Mexico. Producers are Garcia, Stephen R. Hudis, Lindy S. Hudis, Louis Race, and Julie Michaels.
