The Truth about Dare
I always thought director Jett Blakk’s extremely clever, plot-driven movies would be a good match for Falcon, whose movies — especially lately — have been pretty flat, story-wise. I made some introductions and the powers that be hired him for a multi-picture deal. Jett thanked me by stabbing me to death in Dare, his first movie for them, which started out as a remake of Flashpoint but quickly took on a life of its own.
We filmed the scene at the LA County Fair last September and it was a really fun day. Despite an ambitious shooting schedule, Jett, my murderer (old-school gay porn star Lou Cass) and I found time to eat corn dogs, go on rides, and gab about horror movies. For the climax of the scene, Lou stabbed me in the Spook House and I even got to use fake blood (it was ketchup, but still). I posted a few pictures from the day on my Flickr account (warning, these pictures contain absolutely NO nudity).
The weather was crazy that day: sunny one minute and torrential downpour the next. As a result, a drop of rain was on the lens in a few of the shots so Falcon asked for a re-shoot. Second time around we shot the scene up here in San Francisco; it wasn’t as fun but the final product looks great nonetheless:
Falcon ended up releasing Dare as their big release of 2007. At the GayVNs, Dare was nominated for best orgy and best screenplay and Lou got nominated for best non-sex performance. Neither won (GayVN judges seem a bit biased against Falcon the last couple of years), but I’m pretty sure it will do better at the Grabbys. Make no mistake: I have no delusions about my contribution to Dare. I have no aspirations of becoming an actor and I realize that most people will end up fast-forwarding right through it to the actual hot parts, but it was fun and I got to feel like star for a day so what more could I ask for?
