KISSING DARKNESS rough cut teaser (November 2012) for Bent-Con in Burbank, CA.
I've loved Ronnie Kroell since he was on that model show and had the cute bromance with a guy named Ben. It's cool that he's in this movie. Now I have one more reason to watch!
I like Francisco Lachowski, Jon Kortajarena and other male models
Ronnie is a sweetheart. You may have seen him on ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT in recent weeks as they have been doing coverage of his new anti-bully campaign known as FRIEND FILM (or FRIEND MOVEMENT). So far he has gained the participation of celebs such as Adam Lambert, Leann Rimes, Richard Simmons, and more...
I do like supporting low budget films. I liked Sideline Secrets. It all has to be kept in perspective and u have to appreciate what is being created with almost no $. We think of low budget at the theatre as a couple million but were not even talking about that. Perhaps James can enlighten us on what a typical budge is for this kind of film. Sideline did hold my interest despite some of the actors being bad...other performances in it were quite good. I enjoyed the nudity in it, too...I must confess
Ronnie Kroell may be a great guy, but I've seen him try to act and it wasn't pretty. Unless his role is to silently take off his clothes, his presence doesn't bode well for the quality of this movie. (I actually have fewer concerns about Corrigan and any other porn actors who may be participating handling their acting responsibilities.)
Kissing Darkness is a vast improvement on that budget, but still very small. Just enough to pay actors, supply food, cover some wardrobe... a lot of dedicated time from crew and friends helping out. a lot of donated props and locations, etc.
making low budget films is far from glamorous.
The cabin we filmed out, house the entire cast, and three crew members for the week on location there. the cast slept on the floor and shared one bathroom. It was totally a camp-out experience!
are they useless? taking into consideration, they pay my bills, and my current release LUNA PARK is actually the #2 Bestseller right on on TLA-- I think that answers the question pretty fairly as to why i "produce useless movies"
For $1300, that was a very good film indeed.
I like low budget films, I can't belive the poster calls them 'junk'. It is a free market...not every thing should be $100 million dollar Lucas and Spielberg films. The marketplace has room for films of all budgets.
From my own viewing experience, low budget dramas are much safer bets in regards to quality than films that require use of more special effects. The SciFi / horror genres, unless intentional, usually end up embarrassing. But for dramatic films, you don't need big $ to tell a quality story about real life and emotions effectively.
^ especially when you consider that computer have reached a point where all these 'big' films are filmed in front of blue/green screens.
Give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day.
Give a man religion, and he'll starve praying for a fish.
NEVER LISTEN TO A ONE SIDED STORY AND JUDGE.
I'm 61........if Brent is in it.......I'll watch it....... .......
haha good deal!
If there is anything worse than low budget gay films, it's low budget gay horror films. You know the "acting" part in the beginning of porn scenes before they start to fuck? These movies are like extended versions of those scenes. Softcore porn which nobody would bother to check out if it didn't have hot guys.
So yeah I've pretty much given up on these type of movies but still good luck with it.
here is where the disappointment is going to come in... the film has only like two quick nude shots... it isnt porn.
Love the promo, the script seems pretty sharp, the blonde guy saying "it smells like wilderness" got a laugh out of me.
I'll have to keep an eye for it's release to DVD, buying films from Amazon and TLA online are the only way I can manage to get hold of them in Australia.
What is the estimated release date? And where will we be able to get it? TLA?
it is currently in post production, so it shall be several more months before it is available. but, yes it will be available through amazon, tla, netflix, etc.
Hi, I'm a fan of Brent Corrigan. And I have some important questions to ask. Please help me out. I will really appreciate your kind effort.
Okay, about Brent Corrigan...
Has he ever done any straight porn or bi porn before? In other words, has he ever done porn with a woman before?
Is he gay, straight, bi or one of those gay-for-pay performers?
Lastly, I heard he left porn now. And he's moving towards a more mainstream friendly career. Is that true? Good for him.
Hmmmmm.......his site seems to be seriously out of date.......
That blog is from his old website, which he has no connection to anymore. His current websites are
To my knowledge, he has never done on-screen porn with a woman. He's gay. He hasn't said that he's abandoning porn forever (said he doesn't want to be one of those people who makes a big announcement only to go back to porn eventually). But he is currently focusing on transitioning into other non-porn acting roles, like "Judas Kiss" (which I thought was great) and several other indie films, and hasn't done porn in several years. I think he has the rare potential to be able to cross over and have a successful mainstream/indie entertainment career.
This is what I like about Brent Corrigan. He's different from other porn stars.
He's very ambitious, and is trying his hands on various non-porn careers, which I feel is great for him.
I really hope it works out well for him.
He's a talented guy, and it would be a waste if he sticks to porn only.
Besides, I don't think porn is something you can do forever.
I'm Making 2 New Movies!
Brent Corrigan performing at the 2nd Annual TOGETHER 20
Thanks a lot LuvFindsAndyHardy,
this makes me an even bigger fan of Brent. I like that he stays true to himself, that he ONLY did gay porn since he's gay.
I would not have like it or enjoy it if he did straight/bi porn because that would be like him caving in to the industry and pleasing everybody else.
With KISSING DARKNESS finally coming to a near-finish with editing. We are now embarking on a new project tentatively entitled "SOMETHING FOR THE BOYS"...
Take a moment to check it out:
SOMETHING FOR THE BOYS
Lance Badwater has never had an easy life. Being "different" from the other kids, bullying and ridicule became an everyday ritual at school. Taking shelter in his room after another day of high-school-hell, Lance locks himself away and finds comfort in the observation of his neighbors and historical disasters of the past. But when his cousin moves in, after an accident of his own, Lance is challenged to see that life doesn't have to be so tragic... Opening his eyes, Lance begins to see the stories of his peers unfold before him...
We should have a lot more information about KISSING DARKNESS within the next week or so.
I'll be honest... my first impression is that it looks a bit tacky.
Kyle Blitch is playing the all too common but painful gay cliché. I think that idea is a bit outdated.
However, I respect independent filmmaking. I wish you all the luck in the world with this movie and your future projects as well.
LOL do you get paid for this or something?
We started scoring the film this week. Now to meet the rough-cut deadline submissions for a number of festivals we have been invited to!
Other than that, now focusing on SOMETHING FOR THE BOYS!!!
Just a stupid behind-the-scenes video of some of the cast goofing around one night on-location. LOL
Promo video for when we were funding our last film, KISSING DARKNESS.
it is a compilation showing footage from a number of our previous films… (Sideline Secrets I & II, SIREN IN THE DARK, UNSOLVED SUBURBIA, LUNA PARK, etc)
The quality is a bit compressed, but it shows you some of what we have done and are capable of doing…
we hope it assists you in deciding to help SOMETHING FOR THE BOYS!!!!
a compilation of some of our previous films...
We have 13 days left to raise our minimum goal amount for our new film, Something for the Boys. Please take a look and see what you can do to help. Will 13 be our lucky number?!?! Please spread the word!!!
looks bigger than normal....
How naughty can I be and still go to heaven?
He performed his own circumcision? What?
