FATHER SON RUN tells the story of Wally & Erik, a father and son who are trying to make up for lost time after spending most of their lives apart. Their plan? Film a documentary as they embark on a cross country motorcycle road trip from Wally's home in Fort Collins, Colorado to Erik's world in Brooklyn, New York even though Erik has never ridden a motorcycle (or made a documentary) before. FATHER SON RUN shows what can happen when a father and son try and fit a childhood worth of memories into 1,800 miles on the road.
Two original Backyard FX specials that originally aired in 2009 as Erik prepped to go out and shoot "Father Son Run." They cover some of his planning techniques, and special camera gear.
We go behind the scenes on The Indie Machine's documentary short "Father Son Run." Erik gives us additional insight into the process of creating his first documentary, and answers the questions "Why the heck did this take 3 years???"

This is the version of FSR with swearing -- if you like your motorcycle ride a little saltier.
