Eric Rivas casted various casted members from the ‘Forbidden Ones’, Rafael and His motorcycle club contributed their time and Harleys to lend the film an additional touch of authenticity beyond its Coney Island locale. The Forbidden ones also let us shoot in their clubhouse which is unprecedented. They helped us big time with indoor scenes and the authenticity.
