In case you have been living in a closet, here is a trailer for our new favorite movie…. Machotaildrop. This film is a visual masterpiece showcasing a mash-up of influences including Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and The Adventures of Baron Munchausen.
Machotaildrop was co-written and co-directed by first-time filmmakers Corey Adams and Alex Craig. It was shot in Vancouver, Canada in 2008 when Corey Adams won a contest from Fuel TV to make a film on a $100K budget. His film (this happened in 2004 by the way) was the best one and he was then given a million dollar budget to make a feature film…. Machotaildrop was born.
“Machotaildrop is a highly visual and fantastical journey about an amateur skateboarder, Walter Rhum, who realizes his dream of turning pro and riding for the world’s greatest skateboard company… Machotaildrop. Set in an anachronistic time and place, Machotaildrop is the greatest skateboard company of its day and the regal and grand sport of skateboarding has been thriving for many generations. Walter’s journey serves as a window through which we discover the dark underbelly of what appears at first to be a benign skateboard company.”
