Buttery's first documentary short film project began much like mountain biking itself—without any plan or idea where we were headed until we got there and lived the story ourselves. One might say we bit off more than we could chew—instead of following the traditional documentary track we decided to create a narrative documentary with period-appropriate re-creations, right down to the trucks, bikes and beers. And the mustaches, of course.
"Born From Junk" is now available to watch through our friends at Freehub Magazine. We had so much fun working on Part 1 that we decided to dive back into the archives and produce Part 2, slated for release in June 2022.
