Bootleg
Baker
1999, 55 minutes
Current Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Following the release of Birdhouse The End, Jay Strickland (who was Birdhouse's manager at the time) and Andrew Reynolds decided to develop an idea for their own team and company. Unhappy with the image of being at Birdhouse, the two shared sentiments about not identifying with the team and wanted to create something they felt better represented them and their crew of friends. Back then, a majority of their crew was living in Huntington Beach (the infamous Warner Ave. Mob). They hung out, skated together, filmed each other, threw the footage onto VHS tapes and suddenly, Baker was born. Bootleg represents the early days of the crew before they were actually considered a team, and if you understand what Baker is all about, be prepared to see drunken moments and plenty of hijinx. There is also behind the scenes footage of The End as well.
