First Ride

Directed by Brett Smith

Narrative | 4 minutes | United States | 2018 | English | INT'L PREMIERE


Do you remember the first time you rode a motorcycle? Your first bike? That magical moment became a lifetime memory. First Ride acts out the imagination of one boy discovering motorcycles. One child whose life is forever changed. The film was produced for the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Class of 2018 induction ceremony, and aimed to inspire a future hall-of-famer rather than celebrate the present inductees.
