Kingdom Creative – Spirit of the Ride


A Triumph Daytona 675 and Cadwell Park race circuit, great ingredients, we are so proud of the finished film. Our film Spirit of the Ride, features ex Isle of Man TT racer Darryl Pendlebury’s passion for racing bikes.

Kingdom Creative are automotive filming specialists, but we want to progress the company and be able to film motorbikes also.  This film was our opportunity to show we could film motorcycles and that we understood why bikes appeal to so many, we are therefore delighted that it has been nominated for an Endorphin Award in the category of Best Artistic Work – Short Form category.

Spirit of the Ride looks at the passion that ex-roadbike racer, Darryl Pendlebury still has for riding motorcycles.  In 1969 Darryl came third in the Production Class of the Isle of Man TT on a Triumph Bonneville, a amazing achievement.  Darryl is the grandfather of Kingdom Camera Operator & Editor, Dan Pendlebury.  We had no idea of this before starting to search for a subject for our film, delighted that Darryl was able to help us out.

We hired Cadwell Park in Lincolnshire for just two hours, that is all the time that we had.  We got hold of a Triumph Daytona 675 and an experienced rider.  We shot mainly on a RED Epic-W 8K camera, but for trackside shots we also use a Sony FS7 and a DJI Inspire drone.  Tracking shot were done on the RED Epic-W using a Movi Pro.  The camera operator was strapped into an estate car and driven round at speed, the Movi Pro did an amazing job to stabilise the footage.
