Knight Before Dawn
Zimmerman, Jeffrey Dylan
Knight Before Dawn presents an alternate view of the glamorous life of a professional skateboarder. The nineties were a great time of expansion for the skateboard industry. Companies grew, athletes became better paid, and everybody prospered. But of course with such a dangerous career, issues are bound to arise. In the midst of his booming career, Chad shattered his fibula in 10 places. As prosperous as the industry was, it was also unforgiving. Chad's career was over, and his fans realized this. Chad had lived the dream, and returned to reality. We will explore what it takes to make a comeback in this industry and get the fans back supporting you, as well as what professional athletes do when their careers are over. The film is a 90-minute feature documentary and incorporates various aspects of both expository and observational documentary modes. It serves as a character profile of Chad, but also tells a larger story of the industry as a whole. A Blu-Ray of the film is available for viewing at the Media Center of Love Library.
