Ivan Olita shares directors cut for the new Harley Davidson Pan America Gonzo Journals series

Twelve explorers go gonzo on the Harley Davidson Pan America in breathtaking rides through six countries. Their mission: stomping terra…and chasing thrills.

LA-based and Bravo Studios owner Ivan Olita shares his director’s cut of the 6-part online series shot in France, Germany, UK, Japan, USA and Australia.

Made up of a diverse set of adventurous professionals- from art directors and editors to software engineers, product designers and creative collaborators- the Pan America riders view riding as a passion that lies outside of their day jobs.

Dirty Films served as the European producing partner, following six riders travelling across the hills of Bavaria, Germany, the mountains of France and the moors of the Yorkshire Dales, UK.
