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.

Custom Leather at Mr. S in San Francisco

Since it’s Folsom Weekend coming up in SF, I figured I’d post a few gems from the past over the next few days. There won’t be a Titan Booth this year since the production team are hard at work on a bunch of new projects we’ll tell you about soon.

But if you find yourself in town, don’t hesitate to go visit our buddies over at Mr. S Leather. They do great custom work there, and we’ve shot MANY of the recent Titah Rough movies at their location in the SOMA District, and as you can see, they’re a really fun (and hot) bunch of men.

That’s Shay Michaels in that clip, shooting a scene with Aymeric Deville for the Titan Rough feature Wet And Wild.

Shay Michaels and Aymeric Deville get Wet and Wild

A few months ago I posted a clip of Paul Wilde teaching Shay Michaels the proper way to play with Clothespins on Aymeric. That was an intense scene and both guys had fun but Aymeric REALLY got pushed to his limits. While the scene was going on, it looked like he wasn’t going to make it through but by the end he was smiling bigger we’ve ever seen.

Well the scene they shot is out today at Titan Rough, from the movie Wet and Wild.

Shot with the look and feel of 70s 8mm porn loops, complete with the jittery lighting and faded color. This movie has that same raw edge from those days.

The raw intensity of those men together bursts off the screen. You can almost feel the intense edge-pushing pain that Aymeric feels, followed by the adrenaline rush after.

Click Here to see it at Titan Rough. Included with your membership to Titan Rough, you also get full access to the entire Titanmen Online Catalogue, streaming in HD or download your favorite scenes. And that’s a HUGE catalogue to choose from.

Wet and Wild is also On Sale on DVD at the Titanmen DVD Store.

AND… here’s a very fun clip of the guys shopping at Mr. S Leather before the shoot to choose their gear and toys.

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.

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.

You can get both DVDs on sale at Titanmen’s DVD store here.

Paul Wilde Teaches how to Clothespin your Friends.

While shooting at the Mr. S Leather space last month for an up-coming Titanmen Rough movie, Paul Wilde gave Shay Michaels some quick tips on the best way to partake in a bit of light BDSM with some Clothespins and Aymeric Deville.

As an added bonus, Aymeric shows us how to lock up your balls.

There really never is a dull moment around here.

Looking up at Francois fucking. You’d have a hard time holding the camera still, too.

People often ask about the shot from underneath when fucking in a porn movie. It’s always one of the hardest shots to get… here’s a complete, unedited clip.. you can hear the camera operator telling Francois to move his leg, Titanmen director Brian Mills yelling out to repeat lines to make sure they’re recorded. And yet… the guys keep on fucking…

This is some unedited footage from Incubus. The kind of thing that just gets incorporated into the movie. But this clip has been circulating the office for a couple weeks and considering how many times I’ve had to um… excuse myself and watch it on my iPad in the supply closet, AND considering how popular Francois is here, I figured this would be something that you’d all want to see.

Watch the whole movie at Titanmen.

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.

Shay Michaels and Hunter Marx throw down in the mud pit

This was one of those scenes that while we were upstairs working in the Titanmen office, we kept talking about what was going on down stairs in the studio. Paul Wilde asked Hunter Marx what his biggest fetish was when he was coming out to shoot a scene for the Titan Rough series.

Hunter told him about his home mud pit. Yeah, I had the same reaction that most of you probably did. I didn’t realize that a “home mud pit” was a thing you could “have.” Learn something new every day. I posted a video with Hunter talking about that here.

Anyway… the resulting scene is on the latest Titan Rough DVD and it’s brought a lot of “mud men” to Titan for the first time. Again, I wasn’t totally aware that there were enough gay men who were fans of mud wrestling as a fetish to actually have a name for themselves, but ever since Jasun tweeted out a few pictures from the set, the Mud Men have been asking when they’d be able to see the whole scene.

And more than a few of them have written back to tell us that what they loved the best about the scene, after the mud itself, was that you can tell just how much the guys are really into mudding up. I’m not sure if “mudding up” is a term used by the Mud Men when they have their Mud Man weekends (I’m not making this up, I swear), I hope I’ve coined a new phrase.

And I also hope that I get invited to a Mud Man weekend one time because… I’m kinda getting off on this scene too. Again… many unexpected things happen at Titan, one of which is that I seem to discover another fetish I didn’t know I had every month or so.

Watch the whole scene here.

After the editors went through the hundreds of hours of footage shot while Francois and the crew were making Incubus parts 1&2, they found enough that we’ll be able to show you every aspect of making the movie from preproduction to costume design to the shoots and still shoots and even how they did some of the special effects like the green screen body doubles and some of the really wild sequences like the rope tying and the score.

Stay Tuned.

Francois Sagat’s Incubus – and a SUPER SPECIAL join from price at Titanmen!

It’s finally here.

After months of production, industry rumors and a closely-guarded set in the desert of the Cochella Valley in Southern California, François Sagat’s Incubus is out. The jaw-dropping visuals and compelling imagery seen in the leaked shots fascinated and baffled people, starting countless conversations of just what François was up to this time. Featuring a mega-star cast including Hunter Marx, Spencer Reed, David Anthony, Junior Stellano, Jessy Ares, Shay Michaels, Jimmy Durano and Shay Michaels, Incubus was shot as two parts as the direct oral debut of Francois Sagat. It’s artistic, it’s compelling but above all else, it’s a full-on gay hardcore porn movie starring one of the most iconic porn stars ever.

And news gets better than Titan is also launching a totally redesigned site where members can get access to the complete Titanmen catalogue, streaming beautifully in HD on your computer and mobile devices. I just watched the whole first scene (which clocks in at a full 53 minutes and features 6 cum shots from 3 men!) on my iPad and I think it’s my new best friend.

And I’ll even better that.

Right now, you can join Titanmen’s site for a whopping 80% off. $99 for a full year of unlimited streaming of the entire catalogue of Titanmen, plus more movies by huge directors like Michael Lucas and Chichi Larue.

Incubus also features the first-time appearances of Jessie Jackman and Trenton Ducati, both of whom have already gained large followings before their first scenes are even released. Fans won’t be disappointed to finally see them in action.

Here at Titanmen.net I’ve been posting lots of “making of” and “behind the scenes” video from the set and now that it’s out I’ll have a LOT more to post. You can also see a lot of bonus video on the blogs of Francois Sagat, David Anthony, and Jesse Jackman.

How To Fuck. (parts 1 & 2)

Some more behind the scenes advice from the set of Francois Sagat’s Incubus. It will be coming out on Titanmen in under month… watch this space.

You can already see Shay and Spencer in action on Titanmen now!

And today on Wild Kingdom…

I’m still relatively new to the whole Porn Industry, but people always ask me what it’s like on set at a porn shoot when they’re not shooting. I tell them that it’s actually a very professional environment, the guys read books, play the odd video game, maybe work out together. Nothing too crazy going on.

Clearly, I’m totally full of shit.

This, gentlemen (and ladies who like gay porn and yes, we know you’re out there), is what I like to call “down time” on a porn set. Shay Michaels and Spencer Reed had just finished shooting their scene for the up-coming movie “François Sagat’s Incubus” when Jimmy Durano and Trenton Ducati arrived to shoot their scene together.

Jimmy and Spencer decided to get… reacquainted with each other, the way that guys do in any industry, I’m sure (although I’ve never worked at a bank). Shay decided that there was only one way to welcome a new co-worker and that’s having him suck your dick. Such a friendly guy.

You know, I’m sure it’s no different at your place of work. Although my opinion on that might be the reason I got fired from my last job at the florist.

You can see all these guys in action at Titanmen. (although you’ll have to wait for about a month to see Trenton’s debut in “Incubus.” But as you can see… it’ll be worth the wait…
