Holy Stokes! A Real Life Happening
“Nearly two years in the making and featuring an international cast of skaters ranging from street legends to transition destroyers to hypertalented up-and-comers rolling and rallying across the planet, Volcom’s forthcoming feature film Holy Stokes! is shaping up to be the feel good hit of the summer.
Shot entirely in 4K ultra high-definition and directed by skate-film auteur Russell Houghten, Holy Stokes! marks the first full-length skate film from Veeco Productions
since 2007’s Let’s Live. Shot in dozens of locations spanning every corner of the globe, it builds on more than 20 years and 30 influential films from the world of Volcom.
“I’m really excited for people to see this film,” says Volcom’s Vice President of Skate Remy Stratton, “it’s been a long time coming. I know the team riders are excited too and right now our team is firing, so it’s cool to be able to showcase all that talent
through the Volcom lens.” And with the brand’s legacy of progressive, non-traditional films, he says, “having Russell directing it is a perfect fit.”
Russell’s perspective is this: “Holy Stokes is a visual documentation of raw skateboarding and the pursuit of stoke. It has been an awesome nightmare and my most
ambitious project yet.”
The world premiere of Holy Stokes! is set for May 20th, 2016 in Los Angeles, California with a North American and International premiere tour to follow from May 20th June 6th, 2016. Holy Stokes! will be available on iTunes, Amazon, GooglePlay, xBox and Vimeo on Demand on June 7th, 2016.”
