VISTA, CA 11/25/17; After weeks of sleepless nights and endless hours of editing, PROTO Reincarnate was all set for its first world premiere at the AVO Theatre in Vista, CA on the West Coast of the United States. After 5 years since Armageddon 2012, PROTO was ready to premiere it's groundbreaking 3rd full length film showcasing a new team as a rebirth to the brand and the scooter world.

The team, friends and family, and stoked riders caught the world's first viewing of a video the PROTO team worked so hard to create. Emotions were high for Andrew, Zack, Parrish, Chema and Andy, but rest of the team would not see the film until the New York City Premiere.
NEW YORK CITY
NEW YORK, NY; Restless, uncertain and excited the PROTO team embarked on a trip to the East coast to premiere their second world showing of PROTO Reincarnate 2017 at Helen Mills Theatre in the grand metropolis of New York City. The trip took place from December 8th-11th and consisted of Andrew Broussard, Matt McKeen, Zack Martin, Alex Steadman, David Coe, Jake Sorensen, Kirk Svensson, Chema Cardenas, Parrish Isaacs, Brandon Kilbury and PROTO OG’s Steven Sanchez, Elmer Ferreiras, and Brian Murphy.
As PROTO landed in New York, half of the team split up. Andrew, Chema and Brandon went and stayed with past PROTO teammates Elmer Ferreiras and Brian Murphy in the Bronx as they organized an old team reunion. The rest of the team stayed in Brooklyn with Erik Deptula who was grateful enough to let us all stay.
Once at the theater, after hanging the premiere posters the team met with past PROTO riders in the VIP room of the theatre and bonded as a crowd was slowly forming outside the doors of the entrance. As 7pm came closer, the snowball fights outside began to halt, and the commotion outside the doors began to grow louder. Once the clock ticked 7:00, the doors were jolted open. The stampede of people carrying their drenched scooters rushed down the stairs and clashed to claim their seats.
The theatre quickly filled up and the noise level inside exponentially increased from what it was before outside. As Andrew stepped up on stage holding the mic; noise silenced. “Thank you all for coming out despite the crazy weather, but we have a treat for you before we start.” He called up East coast filmer John Cottle up onto the stage to announce the release of the ScooYork Video. John grabbed the mic and said: “ScooYork Bitch!” which made the crowd go mad. The ScooYork video was a groundbreaking opener to Reincarnate as it showcased a new awakening to the New York City and East Coast scooter scene.
