PRODUCERS OF AMERICAN CHOPPER SEEKING BIKE RESTORATION & SALES COMPANY FOR NEW TELEVISION SERIES

Looking  to spotlight one company that restores and flips motorcycles for a national cable network 

LOS ANGELES, September 18, 2012 – Pilgrim Studios, the producers of American Chopper (TLC), Dirty Jobs (Discovery Channel), and Fast N’ Loud (Discovery), is seeking to cast a company of fun, outgoing and even outrageous individuals who buy motorcycles, restore them to their previous glory and sell them. Does your company restore or rebuild old motorcycles? If you and your staff are top-­‐notch bike builders/restorers, have big personalities and can turn forgotten, derelict or vintage motorcycles into full-­‐throttle masterpieces, then you could have your own show on a major cable network! Maybe you hunt for old bikes in your area, spruce them up and sell them for a big profit. Maybe you’re a custom bike builder who doesn’t usually restore bikes, but you’ve got the facility and know-­‐how to do it. As long as you have what it takes, and your team has memorable, outgoing personalities, your company could be featured on its own TV show. If this sounds like you, please email producers at CycleFlippers@gmail.com with your name, the company name, location, phone number, email address, recent photos of you and your team, company website and a brief explanation of why you should be flipping bikes on your own TV show. Producers are looking to meet great builders in early October, 2012. So contact us TODAY! * For more information on Pilgrim Studios and the  producers, please visit www.pilgrimstudios.com

La Banda Announces Premiere Unique Documentary Celebrating Latino Motorcycling Culture

LOS ANGELES (April 18, 2011) –La Banda Films today announced the release of the documentary film, Harlistas: An American Journey, premiering April 2011. The film is directed by award-winning filmmaker Alfredo de Villa and follows the emotional journeys of real-life Harlistas – Harley riders of Latino heritage – as they seek adventure, camaraderie and achievement of the American Dream.

The documentary is the first of its kind to ever profile Latino motorcycling culture in the United States. The 90-minute film showcases four pivotal stories spanning Los Angeles to New York, the plains of South Dakota, the Pacific Coast and the Grand Canyon. Directed by Alfredo de Villa (Nothing Like the Holidays, Washington Heights), Harlistas: An American Journey brings to life Alfredo’s own passion for Latino culture and the iconic American motorcycle brand, Harley-Davidson.

“This documentary captures an unexplored terrain: the bond between Harlistas, their motorcycles and their families,” said de Villa. “Much more than the traditional historical or fictional narratives, this film charts new boundaries and is as fearless as Harley-Davidson itself.”

Harlistas: An American Journey is scheduled to premiere on Telemundo’s mun2, the fastest growing bilingual cable network in the U.S. among YLAs (young Latino Americans), on May 27, 2011, with additional airings on May 28 (Uni HD and mun2), July 29 (mun2) and July 30 (mun2). Prior to the network premiere, the film will be available first On Demand and to own via digital download beginning April 21, 2011.

The word Harlista has deep historic and cultural roots originating more than 50 years ago in Latin America among Latino motorcycle riders to proclaim their strong passion for the Harley-Davidson brand and the bonds shared between fellow riders. Being a Harlista is about overcoming obstacles, grabbing life by the handlebars and experiencing the camaraderie of the open road.

“Harley-Davidson has a long-standing history with Harlistas, and we were thrilled to help support Alfredo’s vision to create a film that celebrates Latino riders,” said Dino Bernacchi, marketing communications director for Harley-Davidson. “We hope that everyone who sees this film feels inspired to take the next step toward following their dreams.”
