Faster Than Life gives an exclusive insight to the tight knit road racing world, family, friendships, the highs, the lows and the generational involvement.
The film is not just focused on racing but the human aspect and filmed in a way that is accessible to viewers that might not be avid motorbike fans.
The feature documentary follows Dave in 2019 through the two covid cancelled TT years and culminates in behind the scenes action of TT 2022. The viewer gets an insight to what it takes for a privateer to get onto the startline of the world’s pinnacle motorcycle race showing some epic onboard and track shots of Dave as he races through towns, mountains and between the trees & hedges at 150mph in the Supertwin race.
The independent film has been produced by Felipe Costa and Chip Gulland who are based on the Isle of Man and have worked on a number of projects together combining aerial filming and experience in the Brazilian film industry. Their work has featured in short films, documentaries and national advertisements while filming in a run & gun style.
The film edit is 95% complete and will be crowdfunded from February 2024 to polish off the film, licence-in official race footage and submit to film festivals. The support and participation of road racing fans is really important at this stage and there will be plenty of crowdfund perks for all.
