So, here’s the story.
A few months ago, I purchased a vintage erotic photo that was taken in Palm Springs. According to the clerk, the shopkeeper bought an old portrait at an estate sale of a prominent Southern California politician. Because the shopkeeper purchased the portrait for its frame, he offered to return the painting to the family. But after cutting through the back of the portrait’s framing, a collection of erotic photographs fell out. This one included.
Several months ago, I obtained permission to use the photograph as inspiration for a Himeros.tv film. In a nutshell, I wanted to create an imagined story that led up to the moment the photograph was taken. So, Travis Mathews wrote a script featuring two escorts who got double-booked to fuck Rock Hudson. As many people know, Rock was a closeted celebrity who was popular in the 1950s – and someone who would be likely to visit Palm Springs to engage in some out-of-the-spotlight fun.
And so began the process of re-creating the world in the photograph. From purchasing replica furniture online to scouring eBay and vintage markets, everything slowly fell into place. We even found a filming location that mirrored the photo and its aesthetics perfectly.
But we also had our challenges. Casey Jacks was set to play one of the lead roles. As many of you know, he tragically and unexpectedly passed away a few weeks before filming. And a few days before filming, a family death reshaped our crew. But with the help of director Matthew Lynn, we were able to pull everything – and ourselves – together in creating this film.
Waiting for Rock is a different type of video for us. For one, it’s driven by a narrative. The sex happens, but it’s part of the story. And the film is – literally and figuratively – a snapshot in time of a different era. Hollywood is changing and, though many celebrities still guard their sexuality, the closet doors are slowly opening.
