Today, Why We Ride celebrates two years since production started! The crew met at 8:00am on Wednesday, August 1, 2012, to start a project that has been transformative for all of us. We filmed, edited and released Why We Ride 15 months later. Over the past two years, we have traveled to the most iconic motorcycle events and shops, and we have been embraced by the motorcycling community. It has been a busy and fulfilling two years!
Our shooting schedule that day was at David Hansen’s The Shop in Ventura, California. We interviewed both David and Johnny McClure, and got footage in and around The Shop. Check out this call sheet from that first day! (Click on the image for a larger view!)
As you can see, it was a full day of work, and when we got back to the studio that evening, it was time to get packed and prepped for the trip to Sturgis. (But more on that trip later!)
