'I Want Your Love'-art-NakedSwordPress Release Roundup: Video-on-demand website NakedSword has premiered a 14-minute short film titled I Want Your Love that it terms “equal parts art film and gay porn.” It was produced in conjunction with filmmaker Travis Mathews, who first earned buzz with the recent web series, In Their Room. A site rep notes the new film, starring actors Jesse Metzger and Brenden Gregory, “serves up a one-of-a-kind combination of heightened cinematic artistry, subtle character development, hot San Francisco locals and naturalistic hardcore sex.” The storyline follows “two friends who are playfully negotiating having sex with each other for the first time.” NakedSword convinced indie-rock bands Girls and The Chromatics to contribute to the soundtrack. CEO Tim Valenti said I Want Your Love is “an art film that doubles as gay porn” and continues the site’s tradition of “presenting hot sex in fun and unprecedented new ways,” which includes the web soap opera WET PALMS and comedic serial DIRTY TRICKS. “Travis is a friend of mine and I wanted to do something with him and NakedSword,” Project Manager Jack Shamama told me. “We met several times and came up with the project collaboratively.” He acknowledges thematic similarities to writer-director John Cameron Mitchell‘s indie film Shortbus, which featured hardcore hetero- and homosexual sex. “The Shortbus analogy is obviously there, but honestly I think the end product is very different,” he said. “The plan is to generate some buzz around the project and try to raise money to produce a feature-length version.” CLICK HERE to view the entire short for free and CLICK HERE for the soft launch of its official website.
