Bryan Carroll Wraps Principal Photography on Feature Documentary Why We Ride


Walking West Entertainment and Gnarlynow Entertainment have completed principal photography on Why We Ride, a feature documentary that explores all aspects of the motorcycling community and its riders.

Project helmer and Gnarlynow founder, Bryan Carroll, (Public Enemies, Miami Vice, Collateral) is producing and directing along with Walking West’s James Walker (Brake) as producer. Ed Kretz Jr. is serving as a technical consultant.

Why We Ride began production in July 2012 with filming continuing all over the country for a full year. From the deserts of California to the salt flats of Bonneville, visiting the rallies from the Midwest to Daytona, Carroll captured photography and interviews of riders and racers from all walks of life and all forms of motorcycling.

The documentary was shot with Canon‘s Cinema EOS C500 camera paired with Codex‘s Onboard S recorder, which enabled 4K resolution at rates up to 120 fps. The package was compact and lightweight enough to be operated out the door of a speeding van or on the end of a 12-foot jib arm. “When you’re averaging 30-40 setups per day on a documentary, the mobility and durability of the camera package is paramount,” said Carroll.

Why We Ride is a story about the passion of motorcycle riders,” Carroll commented. “From a family riding together on the sand dunes, to hundreds of choppers carving through the canyons — the bond with two-wheels is the same. It brings people together in a unique and memorable way and we wanted to share that joy with an audience.”

Why We Ride will be released later this fall.
