This was originally shot on the set of my movie “Wide Awake” as part of a short dream sequence (technically the whole movie is a dream sequence) in the “Blue” section of the film where George Ce watches the men from below the surface of the water, looking up. I set my camera at the bottom of the pool and allowed Tom Wolfe and Jay Bentley (and a bit of Dario Beck) to play around in the water in the blazing Palm Springs sun, I shot it during a few different times of day to get slightly different light temperatures and angles of the sunbeams shining through the water.
The original working title was “Aaron’s Cock,” but as the script grew and changed, we decided on the running joke of his name being Mike Cauke which sounds like “my cock.” And Cauke For President was born.
We cast the then unknown Matthew Bosch as Mike… his boyish looks and gigantic dick made it a no-brainer. We added Nick Prescott, Tex Davidson, Dallas Steele, David Benjamin, Adam Ramzi and Luke Adams to the mix and the movie took on a life of its own.
It took on a life of its own… the movie became the biggest hit I ever directed and was nominated for more awards than I could even remember. I still have people asking me about it and last week while I was on a self-imposed retreat in Palm Springs for some much-needed downtime, I met a very handsome lawyer from Canada who told me that the scene with Tex and David was one of his favorite gay porn scenes ever. When he told me this, he didn’t know that I’d directed that movie and written that scene.
Anyway… now that CITIZEN Aaron Schock, anti-gay former Senator who voted against gay people every chance he got has been… well, photographed making out with his hands down a dude’s pants while walking around half naked at Coachella… I figure it’s time for us to go back to Cauke and have some fun.
There’s a HUGE gallery of pics from the movie after the jump… Or just CLICK HERE to see Cauke In Action...
