On Any Other Sunday

A spoof based loosely on the Mert Lawwill sequences from the iconic motorcycle film, On Any Sunday.
Hot shot and motorcycle racer Dave Schofield (Mert) is last year’s racing champion. To hold on to the championship he has entered the Sprint, Hill Climb, and 500 events at the 2022 Malle Mile inappropriate motorcycle festival. Dave is totally committed to his racing ambition. He spends at least ten minutes in his workshop preparing his highly tuned Honda Cub and Suzuki GS400 for racing. Dave and his dad spend hours on the road, driving across the country to find the event.
Within the busy weekend racing schedule, Dave always finds time to spend cherished moments with his eight fans, signing autographs and posing for selfies of himself.
As the racing action unfolds, sadly — due to alcohol poisoning and a recurring fungal infection — Dave’s not on form and cannot get the points needed to retain his championship title. This leaves four other contenders in a shoot-out for glory.
We adapted the original script of the Mert Lawwill sequences and mimicked the visual set-ups and structure, trying to be as loyal to the original with subtle audio and visual references. However, we couldn’t resist some silly and childish humour in places.
