The Shop: Union Garage NYC


Roberto Serrini studied writing, then photography, then editing to become a director. His style is a culmination of these tools, combined with the learned appreciation for communication that one acquires being a professional traveller. He loves the world, the people in it, and the stories that come from it.

His focus in on small stories with big emotions, advertising that gets you thinking, and films that get you feeling. He’s not interested in being like anyone else, but secretly loves emulating geniuses he works with.

He lives in New York when he’s not traveling for Get Lost Magazine and flying drones.


Not only does Moto Borgotaro defy many of the stylistic conventions that have come to define “maker docs,” but it also sets a new standard for the genre of bike shop videos, which almost always feature grinder sparks shot in slow motion. The film accomplishes this by drawing heavily from cinema history to create an aesthetic reminiscent of a spaghetti westerns, grind-house, and Tarantino films. In the context of a short doc, however, these narrative stylings feel fresh and vibrant, and they definitely help Moto Borgotaro break the mold for what a piece like this can look and feel like.
