This was one of those wild scenes that we had to just… wing.
Keith Webb told me that because all of our rental locations in Palm Springs had been rented for things like Spring Break and other events… we had nowhere to shoot that month. So we had to shoot in LA.
“What do you want me to shoot?” I asked and he told me “whatever you want… make it fun. Make it…. LA.”
I called a few friends. I asked if I could use their houses or basements or garages… This scene was shot in the Korea Town apartment of a friend of my first camera operator Darius Union.
We decided that instead of having a script and dialogue, we’d keep what the guys were saying secret. We were going to have a movie about cruising for sex in Los Angeles. Yeah, it doesn’t happen as much now that smart phones have become how men find quick sex. But we all LOVE that idea of just seeing a guy out in the wild, chatting him up for a minute and then finding a place to have a quick trick.
The opening bits were shot with the same steady cam I used for the Micheltoreana Steps sequence in Silverlake. We were fine with a few cars or people way off in the background, but on a busy day in a busy neighborhood, finding those moments when no people were there… THAT was rough. We had a lot of waiting between takes. But we got it. And it flows beautifully.
Once we got inside and started the still photography, Jeremy saw Tristan’s dick and couldn’t WAIT to get it up his hole. Honestly… Tristan has one of the most pretty dicks I’ve ever seen. Even the tops are all “yeah, he can stick that up my butt.”
This was seriously a great scene. The guys were totally into each other and they just wanted to fuck. Jeremy’s amazing body, Tristan’s amazing dick. Perfect combination. And while it was a VERY tight shoot (that room is a lot smaller than it looks), we made it work.
