Earned copy_edited.jpg

Director - Roberto Serrini

Genre:  Documentary

Viewers Choice Award Code # TMC1007 - Earned - The Story of Keith Hale’s Ducati 750ss Keith Hale had no idea at 20 years old that when he scraped together enough money to buy a Ducati 750ss he was buying what would later be known as the most rare and beautiful bike ever built. He had no idea as he raced it and rode it across America or when he used it every day to commute to his job as a schoolteacher. He had no idea that the bike he took perfect care of his entire life would give him the rest of his life to live out and save him from a life of giving unreciprocated as an educator. This is a simple story of a man, a thing, and learning what it is to earn a valuable life.

Driven by curiosity and the lust for adventure, in search of feelings that go beyond the certainties of a Central European life, Don gets himself a motorcycle, which he henceforth calls Rocinante. With this loyal, but stubborn "mount" he tries to make his way through the Andes, which is not only stony, but also full of dangers. He is accompanied by his wife's voice and the urge to be with her and his unborn daugther someday. The film was created from original documents and true feelings recorded on a journey through Peru.

Best Music Video- Perspective

Perspective-posterofficial copy_edited.png

Perspective' is a low down 70’s style Bike-sploitation romance that unravels with tenderness borrowed from late 80’s television show 'The Wonder Years'. Deep fried sun stained harmonica tones resonate over a chilled out classic D-beat, the bass pumps and the guitars have a thick raucous crunch. Moone’s lyrics are driven with enough grit to grind a diamond, and they feel like "tough love" suggestions you’d receive from a close friend. Director - Mickey Moone

Best TV SCRIPT - BOZ: Bikers of Oz

BOZ: Bikers of Oz
TV Script

After a twister rips a biker bar from its foundation, two rival biker gangs crash land in the mythical land of L. Frank Baum’s tales. Thinking they know the story, the two foes quickly unite, but encounter forces that they don’t know as well as they thought. In this Adult Swim style animated show, think of Sons of Anarchy surviving the twisted land of Oz. May also be live action.
