Dirty Films team up with Ivan Olita to produce European Harley Davidson series

Dirty Films are thrilled to share our collaboration with LA based director Ivan Olita & BRAVÒ for Conde Nast GQ magazine and for the launch of the Harley Davidson Pan America Tour. 

Dirty Films served as the European producing partner, following six riders travelling across Germany, France and the UK… their common mission: discovering local tales, stomping terra and chasing thrills.

In episode one, experience the adventure and freedom felt by a journalist and a motorcycle entrepreneur as they carve paths through Western Bavaria, where this one-time trade route glides through ancient walled villages to Gothic churches, medieval castles and more.

In episode two, ride alongside as a photographer and a content creator lean and turn through the beautiful twisting roads of the French Pyrenees, weaving through the stories of locals and pushing the Pan America to its limits on the storied roads of the Tour de France.

In episode three, follow a photographer and a software engineer as they take a trip through time exploring one of the most scenic rides in England, through vast open moorland, farmland, desolate heath, and rural villages.
