Street Dreams Movie with Rob Dyrdek
Remember the movies Gleaming the Cube and Rad? Or maybe you were totally into Point Break? Yep, you watched it every day, then running to your friends to spout off “I am an FBI agent!” in your best Keanu Reeves vocal. Ah the room reeks of nostalgia. So much for authenticity, right? Not this summer my friends. On June 12, 2009 you’ll have the chance to see a real skateboard movie made by real skateboarders. Street Dreams is the newest skateboard cult film written, produced and financed by MTV’s street skate veteran Rob Dyrdek. It’s a story about an up-and-coming skateboarder and his dreams, starring a cast of real skaters: Ryan Sheckler, Paul “P-Rod” Rodriguez, Terry Kennedy and Rob Dyrdek. Hilarious improvisation is provided by Ryan Dunn, the non-skating friend who offends everybody ala Jackass and Viva La Bam.
The Newport Beach Film Festival – Action Sports launch party was hosted by Etnies owner, Pierre Andre Senizergues “PAS”, at his private loft in Newport Beach. Sponsors included FUEL TV and SURFING Magazine and DJ Mark Moreno provided illustrious musical vibrations. The party was tastefully executed in true PAS style, with hosted cocktails and catering (including my favorite Ahi sushi tacos), and an eclectic crowd! Another successful soiree! Kudos Pierre, kudos!!!

The premiere for Street Dreams took place at this year’s Newport Beach Film Festival for a sold out audience. All the pros in the movie showed up for the premiere including Rob Dyrdek, Ryan Sheckler, Paul Rodrigez, Terry Kennedy. The venue was flooded with fans, making this movie the Most Buzzworthy Film of the Newport Beach Film Festival.
I asked Rob Dyrdek how his concept began…
The movie hits the big screens on June 12 nationwide. Go see it. This one really is Rad!
