The Mighty Motor Films - Ducati Paul Smart


In this first installment of The Mighty Motor Films, director Sinuhe Xavier takes us on a cinematic ride with Davide Berruto of Shelter Half aboard his Ducati Paul Smart through the streets of downtown Los Angeles. As this series grows we will meet more motorcycles, hearing the way they sound and getting to know their owners a bit more. This is a celebration of the motor and those who celebrate it with us.



Ray Gordon for Danner

We're big fans of Ray Gordon here at The Mighty Motor. He's a photographer based in Portland, Oregon that sure knows how to have fun. Recently he got together with Thor from See See Motorcycles and the folks over at Danner Boots to put together a really great looking Fall/Winter campaign.


Here's a great little film Ray put together of getting after it the PNW... Looks like we need to get on the road for a little visit to Portland...




Hazan Motorworks Supercharged Ironhead :: Preview

(wh)ORE HAüS Studios in downtown Los Angles. 

Here are some preview shots from Sinuhe

There are a lot of moto people that take themselves way too seriously. They feel they need the latest 200HP rocket out of Italy  or Japan to satiate their need for pushing the envelope. The boys at BA Motors in Signal Hill are not these kinds of people.  Anything under 50cc will do. My invitation deemed that Jah and Steve McQueen, the official supreme leaders had deemed  Sunday July 27th  as the official start of the Mini-Moto GP Season for 2014. I’m not one to fuck with Jah or Steve McQueen, so I headed that direction, it was serious earthquake weather in L.A. anyway, the hot muggy and still kind, the kind people get blasted by lightning on the beach… So, no better place to be than on the freeway heading south with bad British Engineering between my legs to watch The BA Moto Mini GP races.
A Line In The Salt.

Such a beautiful story of passion and determination. Please show some support to help Dan Daughenbaugh and his crew realize a dream of racing a 1951 BSA Star Twin at Bonneville Speed Week.  Good luck guys ! We wish you an amazing journey ahead. Find out more on this campaign here :: A line in...

Sailor Jerry

I recently directed what could be called a dream commercial for Sailor Jerry Rum. The creative brief had vintage motorcycles, campfires and long desert roads. To get away from the typically over shot Joshua Tree area I scouted the Salton Sea, a giant ecological mistake in deep within the Inland Empire of Southern California. We cast an amazing cast of real people that truly lived the life; Joey Indiri of Venice Beach, Jenny parry from Laurel Canyon, Mike Beauchard that lives in Redonondo, eastside photographer Eric Hobbs and the ubiquitous Imogen Lehtonen.
