The Motivation is a new documentary that follows eight of the world’s top pro-skateboarders as they prepare for the upcoming Street League Championship in NYC. While fame and fortune are not necessarily the end result for most skateboarders, the sport has evolved to a state – professionally speaking – where the stakes are as high as any other. The Motivation provides an intimate look at the pressures and internal challenges that face these athletes during a period of intense training and competition, as well as offering an insight into the professionalism, the money and fame, that goes along with what they have individually achieved over the years. The film was included in the Tribeca 2013 Film Festival Official Selection and saw a general release yesterday – take a look at the trailer above.
