GOOD OL’ BOY

Directed by Frank Lotito

In 1979, an Indian family moves to America with hopes of living the American Dream. While their 10-year-old boy Smith falls head-over-heels for the girl next door, his desire to become a “good old boy” propels him further away from his family’s ideals than ever before.

Filmed in 2014 in Kingston, NY. This is a small budget independent film that was brought to Glory Motorworks by our friend Jason lee. After reading the script, we definitely wanted to help out any way that we could. The production was on a shoestring budget to say the least, so we tried to figure out how to get an Indian Motorcycle on set in New York without shipping from LA. Some time on the phone reaching out to Indian owners clubs in New York brought us to Dennis Billa and his Chief. Dennis graciously brought his bike to set for us to teach Jason to ride it and use it for shooting. Jason is a good rider, so he had the Indian wired in a few minutes. As predicted, he bought his own Indian after filming. The sets were great, with suburban America in the 1970’s captured perfectly. Justin Kell added a few details to the story to give the bike a bit more presence, and by all accounts, the film is great. Hopefully people get to see this gem.
