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.
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.

More from the Brian Mills Head Cam Production Diary.
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.
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.
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.

Here’s a cool “making of” clip from Incubus Part 1. 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.
So you can still get full and unlimited access to Titan’s HUGE online catalogue streaming beautifully to your iPad, iPhone and computer (and with an Apple mobile device and an AppleTV, you can use airplay to stream to your big screen TV).
Incubus Part 2 is out in March…
Some more from the Incubus shoot. Lots of work but the guys look like they had a blast doing it…
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.

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!
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…
I know I posted the “Name That Butt” video a couple weeks ago. But Bruce Cam also happened to be there with his camera snapping pictures of the guys at the Folsom Street Fair booth. And any time you’re standing with your back to Bruce when he’s holding a camera, you’re going to see your butt on-line somewhere.

Another Behind-The-Scenes clip from the set of Francois Sagat’s Incubus which is coming out on Titanmen in early December. This is from a three-way scene between Francois, Shay Michaels and Spencer Reed shot in a semi constructed house in the Cochella Valley near Palm Springs. The costumes look wild and were apparently designed by François and created with Slick It Up, a company that François has worked with many times.
You can see a new clip like this every day over on Francois’s blog at FrancoisSagat.com.
Can’t wait to see the final movie, here at the Titan office, the buzz has been unstoppable. People are really excited by what they’re doing.. saying that it’s going to be a fantastic movie, not only extremely hot with amazing sex scenes but also something that’s going to be visually stunning too. From the few peeks I’ve had, I have to say I agree..
You can see all three of these men in action at Titanmen right now. What I love about our site is not only how top-notch the catalogue is but how well it works on computers, tablets, iPhones, Androids, iPads and LapTops. And when you get the best movies directed by the best directors like Joe Gage, Bruce Cam, Brian Mills, Paul Wilde and even movies from the industry’s biggest stars like ChiChi La Rue, Michael Lucas and Dirk Yates, you’ve got the best deal possible for any gay porn site.
Yesterday I posted a video clip with Paul Wilde talking about the mud wrestling scene we were about to shoot featuring the two muscular studs Hunter Marx and Shay Michaels. Shay seemed a bit nervous and was giggling a bit about what he was about to do but Hunter not only stripped down to his jock strap and jumped into the ring we’d constructed, he started to give directions on the best way to mix mud and the best ways to play in it.
He told us that when he was in college, he used to have his buddies over for mud wrestling parties in his own makeshift mud wrestling pit that he installed in his back yard. Unbeknownst to Paul Wilde who cast him in the scene, Hunter Marx just happens to be a guy who loves to play and roll around with other guys in the mud. Which meant that while he was helping us mix the mud and get ready, his cock was rock hard and he was ready for action almost right away.
Shay got into it once we got going. Look for their scene to come out early next year on Titanmen’s site as part of the Titanmen Rough series. But if you want to see Hunter and Shay in action together now, their best scene together is the hardcore 3-way with Dirk Caber in Sting. And if you join Titanmen, you get the piss scene they did only for the Titanmen Web Release version.
