Day Two – Trailer Park Boys

I honestly have no idea what I’m going to call this movie. At all.

What I know is that the many times I’ve been lucky enough to shoot at my friend’s place up in Altadena, I’ve passed by the old 1960s trailer/camper and wanted to do a scene in it. Now, inside is just not an option. It’s tiny in there and we wouldn’t be able to fit gear, crew, lights and stars in unless we were shooting two very short men with GoPro cameras.

Although that might be kinda hot.

The outside presented totally different challenges. The front of the camper is shielded with numerous fruit trees that would make it very difficult to put a scrim in place to block out sun and shadows, the space in front is pretty limited and the wooden porch is old and kinda rickety.

And while I always wanted to try before, I wasn’t running the show and the answer I got was “no.”

Well I’m running the show and I decided I’d shoot a scene there no matter what, dammit. And I did.

My crew were amazing. They managed to snake that massive scrim into place and got it raised high enough to block out all the direct sunlight for the whole day. They managed to find ways to shoot a very wide rather beautiful frame without getting any of the gear in the way. This is when I point out that my crew are all friends whose “real day jobs” are working for major, mainstream movie studios.   These are guys who are used to big-name directors throwing tantrums around them while they try to lug around gear. So working for me while trying to not get hit in the face with a dick is about as fun as it gets for them.

The added bonus is that I’m on set all day with my friends so we spend almost as much time laughing as we do working. And there’s nothing more fun than going out for a drink with your buddies after shooting video of men fucking all day.

Tomorrow, Jesse Jackman arrives.

Day One – Bad Cop

A great start to a short four-day production run here in Los Angeles. Shot the third and final scene for my movie tentatively called Bad Cop that stars Hunter Marx, Damien Stone, Nick Prescott, Adam Herst, Ricky Decker and Donnie Dean.

One thing a few people have asked me is “how long before the scenes get released?”

My answer is “how long is a piece of rope?”

There’s no set time release (I’m still sitting on a two year-old scene with Rogue Status and Warrick Cade for a motorcycle movie I never got around to finishing) but you should see the results of my new 2014 productions very soon now that I’ve finally got a few movies finished.

Day Zero – Heading Back Into Production.

Well my Key West vacation was… well, laid back and mostly relaxing aside from having to take off a couple days to sign two new exclusives to the Titanmen roster… I spent the bulk of my time reading books while drinking myself immobile. Just how I like it. (for the record, The Vines by Christopher Rice, The Cassinni Incident by Rob Colton and I re-read Generation X by Douglas Coupland before diving into his bizarre follow-up Generation A)

But now that that’s all done, today is the pre-production day for my next production run. We’re shooting up in Altadena which some of you might recognize as the location I used for both the Park Sex scene from Nightfall and the Green Man scene from Wide Awake. This will be my first return to that location now that I’m running the show. So I’m now responsible for everything that happens and have to keep everything moving forward. A bit of a daunting task, honestly, and while I’ve been doing this job since the Spring, I still occasionally have that “I’m drowning” feeling. I know it’s silly, but wanting to do the best job you can every time is what makes the job a challenge. What makes any job worth doing is the feeling that it’s just beyond your ability to pull it all off.

If I did Porn Parodies of every David Fincher movie…

David Fincher is my favorite living director. I’ve hung on every one of his movies since his first (Alien3) until the most recent Gone Girl. I’m still hoping that the success of Gone Girl will lead to a second Dragon Tattoo movie, but I’ll be happy to see him do anything.

IMG_4790But… I mean, I do make porn and what it porn without the odd parody? While I’ve never actually made a porn parody before, I’m not totally opposed to the idea. I even had hoped to work on a second Whorry Potter movie with Dominic Ford and even offered to do a walk-on.

So this brings me back to David Fincher. If was going to make a parody, I’d probably want to use my favorite director as inspiration so it would make sense that his movies would be where I’d start. (my favorite director ever was Kubrick but his one venture into porn, the abysmal Eyes Wide Shut, showed that you can’t make Kubrick sexy even if you’e Kubrick. My “runner up” director would be Terry Gilliam but not sure how one could turn any of those into porn movies, either. Aside from maybe 12 Monkeys, and even that would be a stretch.)

And then… the titles. A good porn parody is nothing without a good title. You have to know what movie it’s referencing and the title has to be funny and a dirty innuendo. So… if I did parodies of the 10 David Fincher movies… this is what I’d call them….

1. Fight Club – Fuck Club
2. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo – The Guy With The Drag Queen Tattoo
3. Gone Girl – Gone Gay
4. Alien3  – Gaylien3
5. The Game – The Gay
6. Se7en – Se7en Inch”s
7. Zodiac – Jake Gyllenhaal fucked in a basement by a tatted-up Pagan who owns a rep movie house, who cares what it’s called?
8. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button – The Curious Taste of Benjamin Bottom
9. Panic Room – Play Room
10. The Social Network – Grindr.

Dick: The Documentary

For “Dick: The Documentary“Brian Fender interviewed 63 men, between 22 and 82 who all stripped down to “reveal themselves physically and emotionally” through personal stories about their “relationship” to their dick.

Ok so… while I’m probably a lot more open about showing my dick than most people, I’m not entirely sure that just walking about naked is exactly an “emotional” experience.

Mind you, I say this from the side of the pool at a nude resort in Key West where everyone including the waiter is naked.

Ok so while this might look like I’m finally making my Titanmen onscreen debut, I’m just explaining how the stars of the new Joe Gage epic will get from one position to the next position.

People asked me why I wasn’t in San Francisco for Folsom and I have the best excuse in the history of good excuses to miss Folsom: I’m currently in Palm Springs working as Joe Gage’s secondary director on a new Joe Gage Chronicles movie. Stars of this scene are JD Phoenix, Dirk Caber and Dolan Wolfe.

Photo Shoot: Jesse Jackman

We shot a few scenes at the beautiful house of a friend of mine last year. We shot the Patio Scene from Stag with Alessio Romero and Brayden Forrester in his side garden, the Leather Armchair scene from Wet with Brayden along side Nick Prescott (in his first-ever scene). We shot a Couch scene from Worked Over with Shay Michaels and Ray Nicks.

(we also shot a scene with Ray Nicks and Alessio Romero that hasn’t come out yet).

And then we shot the scene from my newest Titanmen movie Morning Wood with Jesse Jackman and Josh West.. I had conceived of a movie that was nothing but guys waking up in each other’s arms and having sex before doing anything else.

We shot that scene in my friend’s bed. He wanted a scene shot in his own bed.

The other request was “can you shoot some pictures in my bath tub?” So I grabbed Jesse and my camera and… here’s what I got…

The Men of “Morning Wood.”

mrwd_FB_900x900

Here it is… My new Titanmen movie Morning Wood. I had originally wanted to call it “Morningwood” and make it into a sort of soap opera parody set in the coastal town of Morningwood. However… as my work schedule exploded once I became head of production here at Titan… a few of my silly projects had to be scaled back a bit (I’m still planning on Dick Danger 2: Return Of the Dick, though).

I’m still left with three really hot scenes that all take place with men in the morning. We all have some morning wood, right?

Starring Jesse Jackman, Tom Wolfe, Dario Beck, Nick Prescott, Josh West and Tyler Edwards.

Good Morning…

So yesterday was quite a whirlwind of a day and I crawled my ass into bed by about 11 and slept like a corpse. While the fresh, dry air in Palm Springs will help you sleep really well here, I had quite the day yesterday. But that porn ain’t gonna make itself so I’m already back at it.

New Titanmen performer Tyler Rush just arrived at the airport last night and we’re going to shoot a scene with him and Hans Berlin.

So today started like every other day. Dragging my sorry ass out of bed, making my morning “Green Man Smoothie” (2 big handfuls of baby kale, half a banana, 5 frozen strawberries, almond milk, unsweetened chocolate powder and a tablespoon of ground flax seed), a cup of coffee – black like my heart, and a few minutes of half-assed pushups and lunges.

Wish me luck, gents…

Not A Surprise To Most Of Us In The Industry… There Will Be No State-Wide Condom Law.

IMG_6082The state Senate Appropriations Committee did not act on AB 1576 today and the bill will not move forward.

I’ve had a lot of friends and followers send me very concerned messages about the proposed law that would have required condoms and STI testing and sero-sorting for all porn performers. Some I think were legitimately worried for my career (for the record, I never was) and some were just upset their bareback porn would now be produced in another state.

While a few studios ran to Vegas to produce (where porn is technically illegal to produce at all), most studios it seems didn’t buy the hype. Few of us thought it would pass. One exception was the noted and respect adult industry attorney Mark Randazza who was quoting as saying “I had my money on stupid winning this one.” So maybe it was more of a crap shoot than I thought.

AB 1576 was a very flawed piece of legislation that would have forced studios to jump through a bunch of unnecessary hoops in the interest of just shaming porn makers and hobbling their business. As long as the proper industry-mandated protocols have been followed, nobody has ever been infected on set of a porn shoot.

Diane Duke told XBIZ that the Free Speech Coalition was “grateful” to members of the Senate “who saw this bill for what it was — a bald-faced attempt to exploit performers for political gain.”

Which is all it was.

What few people realized was that the testing portion of the bill had already been struck as Assemblyman Isadore Hall of Compton, California attempted to get the condom-only piece through. Given the opposition to government mandated testing from other AIDS orgs, most people well-acquainted with the bill think it’s “very unlikely” that Hall/AHF will attempt to push testing again.

Adult industry attorney Allan Gelbard said “It would do nothing to protect public health, and actually would have the exact opposite effect as to protecting the health of performers. The fiscal effects on the state would be especially damaging.” And he was right.

Cal-OSHA will continue to push for mandatory condoms, most likely. But the industry will oppose it. And the fight will continue.

As you most likely know, I work for a gay porn studio that not only has a very strict condom policy, they have a very strict rule against working with performers that have performed in bareback movies. While a few people had assume that I would try to change this policy when I took the job of head of production… they were wrong. I fully support the condom-only policy of Titanmen and had no intention of challenging it.
