What is Stories of Bike?

Stories of Bike is a  YouTube series about the stories of everyday motorcyclists and their unique bikes.

Each episode is a lovingly produced short film which explores the relationship between custom motorcycle and rider, their history and the reasons they ride.

The series is led by me, Cam Elkins, who directs, shoots and edits along with my brother Jack, who writes original score for every episode.

We're both storytellers and in every episode you'll find a story that inspires you in some way.

We put everything we can into every episode and try to produce an episode each month, but due to other commitments (that pay the bills) it doesn't always happen.



Why We Need Your Help.

We love making Stories of Bike videos for YouTube. But on top of managing our day jobs, it's always tricky to make an episode regularly.

Even though we've become pretty good at creating each episode, we do so in our own time, using borrowed or older equipment. The result is that we can't always put out a video each month and have little to no budget for episodes. This limits what we can shoot, when and where we can shoot and how regularly we can put out an episode.

Also, as travel and accommodation can get costly, we're pretty much limited to shooting around my home in Sydney, Australia.

So, with your support we can invest in more equipment and travel to and shoot in more hard to access locations and even shoot in countries outside of Australia!.

But most importantly, we can spend more time on crafting high quality episodes that you've come to expect and release them more often. Maybe even more than one a month!



What You'll Get.
As a Patron of Stories of Bike, you'll receive a heap of exclusive bonuses with each video that would otherwise be unavailable to the public.

Also, as a Patron you'll have access to exclusive content as well as the opportunity the opportunity to choose which episodes you'd like to see next. We'll be offering Patrons exclusive access to select upcoming episode pitches, so you can control what you see next.

See the list below for more details.



Our Milestones.
Slowly, but surely, with each funding Milestone reached, we can expand the scope of our episodes.

Keen to see:
More amazing photography? More amazing people and their bikes? More unique locations? An episode shot in your country? Perhaps even your own story made into an episode? It's all possible.

With each milestone reached, we access resources that allow us to bring you more and more inspiring episodes that go beyond anything that we've done before.
