Time sure flies when you’re having fun. Our film, Why We Ride, premiered a year ago on October 3rd at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater at The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Beverly Hills, CA. Vintage motorcycles on loan from the Peterson Museum lent a cool vibe to the red carpet event, where the movers and shakers of the motorcycle industry gathered to witness the premiere of the documentary film, Why We Ride, fresh off its win at the 1st Motorcycle Film Festival in Brooklyn, NY.

Before the screening, Directory/Producer Bryan H. Carroll and Producer James Walker went onstage to introduce our independently financed film about the passion of motorcyclists and motorcycling. They thanked the 70 people interviewed for the film, the hundreds who participated in the production, Ed Kretz, Jr for the technical expertise he provided, as well as the thousands who appeared in the footage. Why We Ride was beautifully photographed in HD by Andrew Waruszewski and Douglas Cheney, with original music created by Steven Gutheinz. Stars of the film and many supporters were on hand to enjoy the post-screening hobnobbing that went on afterwards.
