If you have any delusions about being cool, Riley Harper is here to shatter them. Not in a boastful way; Harper's a down-to-earth, friendly and humble. But he's also a stuntman.

A second-generation one, in fact, who started riding motorcycles at the age of four. Add to mix Harper's Air Force pilot grandfather, and you've got an impressive lineage – and near-inevitable destiny. 

This short film captures the mysterious and alluring career of the professional stuntman. Filmed while Harper drives his original 1965 motorcycle around the Santa Monica mountain ranges, it's a beautiful vision of a life of dangerous, dangerous liesure.
