About

The One World Story

“As far back as 1998 we had been discussing ideas for a film, even before we started One World Studios in 2002.  Zack and Scott wrote a script about a fictional group of bikers called “Lords of Gravity” and started shopping it around.  Right at that time Biker Boyz and Torque came out and got panned, so suddenly Hollywood developed a knee-jerk aversion to anything dealing with bikes.  Our feeling was that a bike film that could express the true spirit of motorcycling would have a real shot at capturing people’s hearts and minds.  We put a stack of credit cards on the table and that was our budget.”  ~ director, Scott Di Lalla

“Scott and I had been working in various capacities in the film industry for several years before setting up One World Studios.  I was a film buyer for Korea for several years and lived out there and had a chance to get into physical production on a couple of Korean films in addition to attending all the markets; Cannes, AFM, and the like. Scott was working in New York as an editor’s assistant and then he came out and lived in Korea for a while to work on television.  When we set up One World we knew that we needed an exciting project to separate us from the pack and give us a chance to be creative, but that had a chance to break out and appeal to a wider sensibility. We worked on putting together some Korean remakes and also did some script writing.  We got close on all accounts, but it always seemed like a piece was missing from the puzzle.  Hollywood is a tough place and everyone is paid to say “no”.  We’re not guys who accept negativity and we kept plugging away with our projects and working our part-time jobs to make ends meet.  Finally we just told ourselves that we didn’t need permission from anybody to make a film and just green-lighted Choppertown ourselves.  It was scary to take the plunge, but I guess we’ve always had confidence in ourselves and each other.” ~producer, Zack Coffman
