09 Jan I Am Evel Knievel
Last year a Vancouver based production company produced the “I Am Evel Knievil” documentary. Part of it was not just filmed in Vancouver but filmed at Imperial Motorcycles. The documentary has been on Spike TV and HBO Canada so if you dig around you may be able to see it.
“I Am Evel Knievel” will combine original exclusive interviews with archival footage of this larger- than-life character to tell Knievel’s incredible story. Featured interviews include Matthew McConaughey, Kid Rock, Michelle Rodriguez, Guy Fieri, Robbie Maddison, and family members including sons Kelly and Robbie, and former wives Linda Knievel and Krystal Kennedy-Knievel.
The enduring legacy of Evel Knievel is the unforgettable death-defying jumps. The documentary will feature footage of Evel’s greatest jumps, including the seminal Snake River Canyon and Caesars Palace jumps. The film also showcases Knievel’s rise from a small town rebel in Butte, Montana, to a cultural icon whose rise to superstardom was built on nerves of steel and the ability to get up and do it again no matter the severity of the fall. He lived life like every day was his last, which led to a tumultuous life filled with stunts no man would ever dream of, encompassing meteoric success, wild hubris, egomaniacal mistakes and ultimately redemption.
If you take a close look at the above image you will notice that Jolene is being interviewed in our shop. It was a one day shoot and I think you get to see a whole 30 seconds of the place but hey! We got in the credits.
