Many of you will remember the gloriously melancholic and artful song and video Hades that Francois Sagat and Sylvia Gobbel recorded and released last year.
Since he actually proved to have a very good singing voice, a few people suggested that either it wasn’t Francois’s voice they were hearing or that it was “auto-tuned.”
Well here he is proving that in fact… Francois Sagat CAN sing and he can carry it off live. Performing on stage with the French band I Apologize, here he is lending a chorus to the T Rex classic “20th Century Boy.”
Francois posted on his blog that they did three songs in total and that there was a concert video shot (what you’re seeing above is a fan-shot clip from the audience) and that a better video and recording would surface later.
And if you want to see Francois perform in last years “Movie Of The Year,” check him out in Incubus.
Only a handful of people knew he was moving on at the time. Brian didn’t want to make a big deal of moving on from Titanmen and porn. Besides, he told us, he would be back from time to time… maybe a special project here and there, coming by to help consult on a shoot, even just dropping by for a company party.
But there was still a bit of a nostalgic feeling on set that day. Just a bit sad, maybe, but more hopeful and happy. Brian spent the morning giving some last pointers to the production team that would be continuing on without him. Paul Wilde would be taking his role of head of production and Jasun Mark would be taking over the duties shooting still photography and as secondary director.
Most of the scenes shot that week were for a Joe Gage movie slated for release in early Spring of 2013 and Brian had assembled a bunch of his favorite performers to work with… Hunter Marx, Jessy Ares, David Anthony, Race Cooper, Kyle Quinn, Jessie Coulter and for this scene… Jesse Jackman and Adam Russo (yes, there were three men named Jesse/Jessie/Jessy on set which made for a few confusing interactions).
Once this final scene for Down and Dirty was shot… Brian spontaneously let this out and after a few more smiles… the guys came upstairs from the set to the offices where we all had a big cake, had a laugh and said our goodbyes.
Of course… Brian’s already come back for one short visit to the set… shooting some promotional stills of our stunning new Titanmen Exclusive Jay Bentley.

• Titanmen got our second shout-out on The Colbert Rapport, this time it was the Joe Gage classic Campus Pizza that got the quick moment on the screen. Check for it at about 12:50. We must have a fan over there.
• Would you like some… “Balls Of Steel?”
• The only way to make a birthday cake cooler is to put green army men candles on it.
• A custom Pez dispenser. If you happen to want to eat candy out of your own throat.

Gay Comic Geek recently posted this adorable, funny and entertaining review of Jasun Mark’s first Titanmen movie Nightfall.
If you haven’t checked out his Mancast Channel, it’s filled with fun reviews of porn movies, comics and Gay Comic Geek’s fun outlook on gay geekdom.
We couldn’t possibly be more proud of Francois Sagat and the entire team here at Titanmen who came together as a team to produce the Incubus movies. Francois came to Bruce Cam and Brian Mills in early 2011 with a few rough ideas for a movie that would become a massive effort on all parts of our studio.
From the numerous special effects that our video editing and production team needed to plan, the many bridge-scenes that had no sex but involved hours of planning and production, rope-tying specialists, makeup artists, costume designers, prosthetic horns, ariel cameras, night-vision, head cameras and as far as we can find, the first-ever porn movie which used a GoPro head-camera to shoot someone walking naked around a desert, stopping and taking a piss (watch video of the making of that scene).
Brian Mills and Bruce Cam joined in on the underwater wresting scene that incorporated 5 camera men (two of them underwater), two body doubles and thousands of watts of lights(watch the making of that scene). Logistically we had to plan out shooting a movie that used three locations plus our studio, shot in two cities and using a cast of 13 porn stars and 20 extras.
Then TP Deaux took over 100 hours of raw footage, a rough script and the ideas on paper and created a porn movie that looks like nothing anyone had ever seen. Jasun Mark shot the even more hours and hours of footage of the making of the whole epic so we got to see the process of putting it together.
Watching a scene like the Bacchus scene and how it was made demonstrates just how much work and attention to detail and special effects. It was also nice that the gods of thunder and rain cooperated and gave us the perfect touch of a storm while we were shooting.
If you haven’t seen this clip of Brian Mills being interviewed about Francois’s transition from star to director while Francois is tied up in ropes to be suspended for the Video Demon scene, check it out.
More than just everyone doing their own jobs, the set was abuzz with people coming up with ideas on the fly, suggesting things, figuring out how to make them happen and joining in the whole creation of Incubus.
But to diminish the role of Francois in all of this would be a crime. He’s a creative genius and just watching this movie shows that from start to finish. And we’re very proud of Incubus.
