The Motivation 2.0

Tweetable Logline: “The Motivation 2.0” is a story that will inspire you to live your dreams, even when the world seems stacked against you.

Elevator Pitch: In 2012, skate documentary “The Motivation,” directed by Spirit Award-nominated Adam Bhala Lough and executive produced by Steve Berra and Rain Dominion’s Ethan Higbee, premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival then held the #1 documentary spot on iTunes for two straight weeks upon release. “The Motivation 2.0,” a sequel to the “The Motivation,” follows the story of Chris Cole in his journey from humble beginnings to the top of pro skating. We are offering now you, the most loyal fans of Cole, The Motivation, The Berrics, and skateboarding, a chance to be a part in making this legendary film happen.

Production Team:
Adam Bhala Lough – Director / Producer
Ethan Higbee – Producer
The Berrics – Executive Producer

About the film: For a solid year our best fans asked for this film, and now we’re delivering it. More importantly, we are giving every single one of them a chance to be a part of the making of it. This is a new type of filmmaking that’s really inspiring and exciting to me. – Adam Lough

All the skaters who support what I do and appreciate my skating are truly the life source of this whole project. I’m just a skate rat who grew up able to live his dream. It’s them who make this film special. – Chris Cole

Current Status: In production, looking for finishing funds.
