Brian Mills has had enough of this shit


In this behind-the-scenes video from the filming of Incubus 2, TitanMen lead director Brian Mills (who assisted first-time director François Sagat) describes some of the problems we experienced while filming my scene with Christopher Daniels and the grapes in Palm Springs last fall. (Mobile users can watch the video here.) Thunder, lightning, sirens, lawnmowers, leaf blowers… it’s all there, along with a particularly agitating distraction when we were trying to film my cumshot. Considering all the problems, I find it pretty amazing that François, crack editor T.P. Deaux, and the rest of the Titan team were able to turn I2 into the huge hit it eventually became.

Watch the completed scene here.
 

An unguarded moment with François Sagat

The above behind-the-scenes clip was filmed in September of 2011, when I was working under the direction of François Sagat for the filming of Incubus. Titan director Jasun Mark did an excellent job putting this video together. He compiled film from several cameras and created a continuous narrative of the filming process, using both production footage and behind-the-scenes material. It’s awesome!

I wasn’t even aware that this was being filmed, but I’m really glad it was, because it captured something pretty cool that I never thought would see the light of day. There’s a moment during all that wrestling around when — just for a second — François simply can’t contain his laughter. After a couple of seconds, though, he composes himself and returns to the task at hand. That’s a great example of his personality, right there: he’s always the consummate professional, but no matter what’s going on, he always has this great sense of humor lurking just beneath the surface. It’s really great to see it bubble over once in a while. I’m so thrilled that this moment was caught on film.

Besides the wrestling scene, Incubus also features Aymeric DeVille, Hunter Marx, Spencer Reed, Shay Michaels, Jimmy Durano, Trenton Ducati and Jessy Ares… and you can stream or download it now with your Titan membership.

Okay, on to the fun stuff! Here’s a cool video montage of me and François Sagat wrestling underwater for our scene in Incubus, Part One:

The waterproof camera used for these shots was operated by Titan founder Bruce Cam himself, which I consider a great honor because he’s very selective about which projects he participates in.

As a bonus, in case you missed it, here’s the “making of” video that François posted the other day that shows him wearing the head-mounted camera and talking about diving, driving, and Daryl Hannah!

From channel surfer to François Sagat doppelgänger in under a month!

Here’s a really special behind-the-scenes treat for you… and me! For our underwater wrestling scene in François Sagat’s Incubus, François cast me in the role of a larger, evil version of himself. To this end, he painted his famous scalp tattoo on me — along with all of his other tattoos — using theatrical paint. While he goes about his work with deliberate focus, I talk about what it’s like to go from sitting on my sofa in August to filming with François in September. What a ride! I also discuss my favorite band and reminisce about my time in Japan.

(By the way, you’ll notice that my Sagat transformation is not entirely complete by the end of this clip. The second half of the process is covered in another behind-the-scenes video which I’ll be posting in the near future. Watch this space!)

Ma Métamorphose en François Sagat

Newly-minted Titan director Jasun Mark, who was just a production assistant at the time, took these pictures of François Sagat prepping me for our scene together in Incubus, Part 1. Cool, huh? The makeup took several hours to apply, but I think it turned out great. Working with “Fran” was one of my most memorable experiences in the industry so far; he’s an amazing director, really fun scene partner (we laughed a lot!), and just an all-around sweetheart of a guy. Who happens to be sexy as all fuck.

Both Incubus: Part 1 and Part 2: The Final Chapter are available now.
