    This is an email I received today from a person who recently seen the video I produced, ''Sneak Attack vol 2 Trackside''..Anyone interested should contact the person listed in the email..later people..piece.

    To Whom it May Concern:

    My name is Dana MacKenzie, and I work for Neversoft Entertainment … the game developers behind the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater and Tony Hawk’s Underground series.

    Anyhow, I was just checking out “Sneak Attack” and saw your email address. Currently we’re trying to round up original graf work for our next Hawk game, and thought I’d check with you to see if you had good hook-ups for artists who might be interested in showing off their work.

    If you are interested, the way it works is this:

    Collect nice high-rez digital pics of the art face-on, and hold onto them. We’re still waiting to get new artist release forms from Activision, who is the publisher of our games. Basically, we cannot show any art in the game without the consent of the artist. So, if you have stuff you’d like to see in the game I’d have to get a signed form from each guy.

    After that, we’d put the stuff in the game and give full props to the artists in the game’s credits. No cash for the work, unfortunately. But given that each Hawk game has sold well over a million copies each year … it’s incredible exposure for the artists.

    Anyhow, please let me know if you are interested or not.

    I appreciate you taking the time to read this.

    seems like a really good way to get busted. i guess if you stay away from your real graff name, youd be fine, but ive seen like rebel shit and stuff in tony hawk underground.

    but i mean, youre sending shit you did that matches the illegal shit you did, and then giving your name and a signature.

    Although I agree that it is great exposure for whoever gets their art in the game, not getting paid for the work is complete bullshit.

    Frankly, Activision is being cheap and trying to get something for nothing. The video game indusrty is a multi-billion dollar industry. It brings in more money than Hollywood, for fucks sake. How are they not going to kick down a few bucks for the 'street cred' and realism that they are trying to re create?

    Bullshit, i say.

    agreed. the tony hawk games are some of the best selling video games of all time (all of em went like a zillion times platinum). do you reckon the musicians that contributed to the games did it for free to get "exposure"?

    yeah, but if they're going to make a mint with your help (however small that contribution may be), are you telling me you wouldn't want your cut?

    don't be stupid
