Sonny Barger Film Project. A Motorcycle Club Story.

Sharpfinger Films announces that Sonny Barger is producing an independent feature film adapted from his successful novel, Dead in 5 Heartbeats.

In the film, the Infidelz MC´s former President, Patch Kinkade, is dragged back into his prior life when the peace accord between the clubs is broken. The fictional motorcycle clubs will be portrayed by several authentic MC´s, including members from Arizona and California.

The movie will be shot on location in the Phoenix metropolitan area, using an innovative 3D shooting method to provide for all kinds of viewing entertainment. The film will be directed by accomplished filmmaker, Jeff Santo (This Old Cub, Jake´s Corner, Off the Boulevard), and produced by Sonny Barger, Fritz Clapp and Santo.

The film is to be released this Fall. Casting and pre-production are underway. (from left to right, Producers Jeff Santo, Sonny Barger and Fritz Clapp)

    Anyone who pays big money (10-25 bucks) to see a film, deserves and desires to have the living ship scared out of them – somewhere within the 1-1/4 hr. romp.
    I suggest a scene, whether being chased or saving someone or thing, where a left-side, rear axle mounted camera is following the roadbed, behind a soundtrack of the K. Richards blues-harp solo towards the middle of “Midnight Rambler”, where he begins deep-drawing across the reeds as the music begins freight-training…… (get the audience caught-up in the chase) and then seamlessly “leave the road” and hang the audience over a chasm of the Grand Canyon, while the camera pans back to our rider negotiating the rim still in pursuit.

    Kirkland – The thought that you have put into the scene you described makes me think that you should be directing the movie. I would pay to see that.

    Been waiting on the “SONNY” movie. They keep saying it’s “in the works” , but nothing yet. Fritz Clapp, Attorney at Law and “The Clubs” copyright lawyer. Guessing his bucks are fat. Does he really show up in court looking like that?

    All in fun then:
    Click the square of arrow-group, lower right on the movie box to expand the image to full screen. This camera is 12″ off the level ground. However, a gimballed, robotic 360-degree, extension neck camera could focus on the road ahead (another audience “scare” opportunity here), and then stick it’s gimballed-neck out towards oncoming traffic bobbing between bumper passes. And, while the neck is still extended, pan back towards our rider for a full wide-angle profile of the left side of the machine, zooming in towards the motor for a 4-seconds (now we have the audience body and soul), and THEN jerk the floor away…. and hang them over a bottomless chasm.
    The camera transition from road to chasm, goes from left rear axle, to (right-side) bottom rail skid mount on a Cobra heli. (Note: Pay extra to have the pilot take off, with his nose pointed down like Vietnam duty (hard on the rotors). They’ll charge you for a rebuild, but it feels good and a moral builder for the crew that’s been standing around.

    Time frames noted (early fall)makes me wonder if it will happen. Shooting a decent Theatrical production movie takes a ton of time and lots of dollars unless your cranking out a low budget flick, ike those old biker flicks Sonny acted in back in the 60’s. Those movies were shot in 7 to 14 days and were not focused on acting but action.

    Good luck anyhow
