Filmmaker: Kadshah Nagibe
Film: I Ride A Triumph, 1st annual MFF Short Film Official Selection, 2013
Q: What’s the film about, and what inspired you to make it?
A: Andy Shaw’s love of riding and his custom 2009 Triumph Thruxton motorcycle. Er…I don’t remember (what inspired me), but I’ve been shooting people on two wheeler’s for a long time I just enjoy doing it.
Q: Have you made any other films, and If so, is there a common theme throughout your films?
A: I’m an independent filmmaker living in NYC. I’ve made one other motorcycle short called “The Emblem” which can be viewed HERE and I also made a few short scooter videos which can be viewed on my Youtube page.
Q: Do you ride a motorcycle?
A: Yes all year unless it snows. The two times I went down on my bike was while riding in the snow. I’ve had two Triumph Bonneville bikes, a 2003 and a 2007. The crank shaft on the first bike went kaput and I replaced it with the 07 which runs great. I’ve always wanted to own a Triumph. I would love to have a vintage bike but I don’t have a garage to store it and I wouldn’t want to leave it out on the street. I also love the look of the old the Norton, Victory and Indian bikes.
Q: As a filmmaker, what about The MFF and motorcycle films in general speaks to you?
A: I love what you guys are doing. It’s about time someone stepped forward to do this.
Q: Have you had a chance to attend the MFF yet?
A: Yes my film was in the 2013 MFF line-up thank you for screening it.
Q: What’s next for you as a filmmaker?
A: Well I have an ambitious idea for a motorcycle film in 2014 but that will depend on if I can get a crew together to help me out I’ll see.
