Being Brian Mills. Making a Francois Sagat porn movie with a camera on your head….

While going through a massive archive of video shot on the set of Francois Sagat’s Incubus (it’s over 2 1/2 years ago), Titanmen director found what he calls “a gold mine of some hot, funny, cool and amazing” videos shot by the crew and cast during the 4-week shoot. He says he’s going to start going through it and posting it to his tube site Mancast.

Don’t miss the bit around 8 Minutes when they joke about the future of porn (which seems a lot like the movie Wall-E… eerie considering the movie hadn’t come out yet) and the part about 11 Minutes in when Brian gets the whole room to do an impression of Shay cumming.

Making the Bacchus Scene

LOTS of requests for more video of François Sagat directing… here’s some fun with Jesse Jackman.

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.

David Anthony Stills

Here’s a HOT clip from the still shoot of David Anthony while they were on set shooting Joe Gage’s “One Thing Leads To Another.”

The thing that blew me away the most was the way that Hunter Marx became a cock-hungry little pig when presented with that massive dick of David’s. He was down on his knees sucking away at that thing, couldn’t get enough. And can you blame him?

It’s moments like this that I know I got into the right industry.

Here’s a few of the stills taken that day…

Best International Movie : Incubus (Titan Men)

Best Director : François Sagat & Brian Mills (Incubus – TitanMen)

Jessy Ares “stretching” Trenton Ducati’s hole before shooting “Up Close.”

A fun Behind-The-Scenes clip of Trenton Ducati and Jessy Ares on set at Titanmen with Brian Mills.

Always hot to see these guys on their own and together they’re incredible. More than that, seeing the way that Jessy and Trenton can’t keep their hands off each other even when the cameras aren’t rolling shows just how hot they were for each other.

Trenton is a power bottom but he still asked Jessy to help him “loosen up a bit” before the big scene.

You can see the whole scene at Titanmen right now or buy in On Sale on DVD at the Titanmen Store.

Jessy Ares shows off a big stiff boner in his lederhosen. No, really.

Here’s part 2 of the video you all loved so much. This isn’t from a movie, just Brian Mills and Jessy Ares having some fun shooting stills of Jessy in his traditional Bavarian lederhosen.

Jesse Jackman was on hand to help Jessy get that beautiful uncut dick hard and keep it that way.

Jessy Ares shows off his Lederhosen. No, really.

The story behind the clip is that while Jessy Ares and Jesse Jackman were in town shooting a scene for what’s been described as a “film noir interrogation scene” for an up-coming Joe Gage movie, Jessy mentioned that he had his traditional Bavarian green leather lederhosen. Brian Mills wanted to get some shots of him wearing them, although he’s not wearing them in any scene. Just for fun.

Jesse Jackman was by to watch the proceedings and this video was just a single-take, captured moment of sheer insanity that you’ll find on a Titanmen shoot.

Brian Mills’ last day directing

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.

Incubus 1 & 2 – XBiz Awards Movie of the Year!

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.

Brian Mills Head Cam.

Titanmen director Brian Mills had a lot of fun with the new head cam he’d gotten to shoot parts of Incubus with Francois Sagat.

So he spent a couple days wearing it on his head to do some work and show people what he saw and did while shooting a porn movie. What he captures is… a mind-blowing and fascinating look into the making of Francois Sagat’s incredible movie.

You can watch both movies in the Incubus series at Titanmen.

Tour of the Titanmen Blogs

• Dario Beck writes about his recent trip to a furniture store that he found while shopping for furnishings for his new apartment in Barcelona. Seems that while the couch was comfortable, the lamp looked like it might be fun to sit on, too.

• David Anthony has been having a great time with his Mancast channel, mostly posting videos of himself working naked in his garage or his kitchen but last week he posted a VERY hot video of himself jerking off and blowing a big load.

• The Always-Busy-With-Something Jesse Jackman wants to get fucked in your bedroom.

• Speaking of Jesse, He’s also posted this fun video of Dirk Caber sleeping. Which is strangely hot.

• But most fun this week on Jesse’s blog was all the candid shots that he posted from his recent run of scenes with Casey Williams and Anthony London.

• New performer Liam Magnuson has only shot a couple of scenes and none have been released yet, but he’s already got a growing fanbase on Twitter who were excited to see this video over at Mancast with he and Devin Adam blowing each other to while having their still pictures taken.

• New Titanmen director Jasun Mark posted some very entertaining video with Race Cooper and Kyle Quinn over on his blog of fun they had while shooting promotional stills for the most recent Joe Gage movie “Special Reserve.”

Francois Sagat is many things. Fascinating, hot, enigmatic, hard working, funny and creative.

But he’s never boring.

His blog has become a place to find amazing behind-the-scenes video, engaging music and short glimpses into his life. He also posts some stunningly beautiful photographs of himself along with some fascinating commentary about what the pictures mean.

His most recent addition, “Le Miroir” is no exception.
