Short Film looking for Moped Riders in LOS ANGELES

Hey everyone!

My name is Mark Betz, I am about to direct a 3min short film/fashion film and I am desperately looking for Moped Riders in Los Angeles. Yes, there are the Laterbirds, but anyway, I thought this would be the easiest way to get in touch with LA-based moped riders.

We are shooting on RED, with a professional cinematographer, a crew and a LA-based production company is producing it. The video is a combination of a short film and a fashion film. A LA-based denim brand is funding the project (which means that we have SOME money for gas, alcohol and more :p) in order to put the name on the video and help us create a cool film.

So if you are interested in hanging out on a saturday, riding your moped, getting filmed (and maybe paid) and hanging out with us after the shoot, just post here.

I hope someone's going to reply ;-)

Best,

Mark (edited)

we have SOME money. we will see how we are going to use it, either for gas (?) or to have a little party afterwards.

thanks for the diesel-thing. my native language isn't English, assumed that that's just another word for fuel in general. Hope that lame excuse counts lol

I think the word you're looking for is petrol.

Re: Short Film looking for Moped Riders in LOS ANGELES

I'm a rakishly handsome moped enthusiast living in L.A. but both of my mopeds are stripped apart for painting. How can I help?

Re: Short Film looking for Moped Riders in LOS ANGELES

Hi Mike. dammit that´s a bummer. Well, getting me in touch with all of your Moped riding friends? We are thinking of having at least 5 moped rider in our video. Could you think of anyone? Maybe you could send me their phone numbers or email.

Re: Short Film looking for Moped Riders in LOS ANGELES

First of all, thanks a lot for everyone who reached out to me so far, really surprised who helpful this community is! (not that I expected anything different ;-)

More infos:

- we are shooting on June 16th. Starting between noon and 2pm.

- exact locations tba. We are looking for areas that are easy to shoot at, not overcrowded (maybe north hollywood, valley, etc). In about a week we should know more about locations, time etc and post all the details here as well.

- we are spending the (little) money to hang out with you boys and girls afterwards, have some drinks etc.

@ Cosmo: do you have the email of these two ladies?

@ Eric: I doubt you would where them. they are doing denim hotpants ;-)

If you are intersted in riding your moped, starring in a short film/fashion film, having fun and hang out with us after the shoot, then email me at rondo9@hotmail.de

Thanks again,

Marc

Re: Short Film looking for Moped Riders in LOS ANGELES

denim hotpants? AKA Short shorts?

Re: Short Film looking for Moped Riders in LOS ANGELES

@ Jake: yes. but pretty cool/badass ones, so the setting with moped riders/gangs fits perfectly.

Re: Short Film looking for Moped Riders in LOS ANGELES

So there will be babes in hotpants on set?

Re: Short Film looking for Moped Riders in LOS ANGELES

absolutely! ... but please behave ;-) :p

the video is about three babes trying to kind of escape, driving an old chevy truck through LA, having fun, taking cool pics blablabla and at one point they meet numerous moped riders/a moped gang. they join them and ride with them through LA.

we have an awesome soundtrack by a LA-based band. the vibe of the video is going to be kind of fun, wild, rebellious, "I´m young, I don´t give a shit"

Re: Short Film looking for Moped Riders in LOS ANGELES

they won´t be riding your mopeds on their own of course. doubles if possible, if not we will have them in the chevy truck. plenty of options.
