Throwback to my first Titanmen movie Nightfall

Hard to believe that was 6 years ago when I directed my first scene for my debut Titanmen movie Nightfall.

We shot this at the Oxballs factory and warehouse in the valley. It was late at night and there was that empty, eerie and mysterious feeling being in a deserted industrial area. I was a bit of a mess… I really wanted to impress my new employers and have them happy with my first outing. I had written a loose script and had an idea of what I wanted in mind, but explaining that to my crew was difficult. They all thought I was lighting things too dark, they didn’t like that I had the guys up on a huge table and they thought my concept was “creepy.” It was… I’ll admit that. Thomas is lured to a dark area by a mysterious person he meets online. What follows is a rather stunning sex scene with Alessio Romero that got RAVE reviews and sold an unexpectedly large amount of DVDs and Titanmen memberships.

I still remember feeling vindicated when I was told that the DVD had gone into a third printing.

The opening sequence was shot mostly that night, although I ended up adding the city footage after I spent an evening driving around Los Angeles and getting that amazing night footage (which I then spent hours pixel fucking into looking like Blade Runner).

I was very proud of how I was able to edit the movie and come up with that look of darkness and shadows that still allows you to see everything. I spent days editing the scene and then doing the colour corrections and grading that resulted in the final look. It’s still one of my proudest moments.
