Good morning and let’s quickly update your pic on grindr or some other dating app!
This short film sweetened my black coffee this morning: The New York-based erotic magazine ADULT takes the grooming routine of a handsome fellow to a new level. Dazed recently premiered the first ever film, conceived by co-founder Berkeley Poole and brought to life by director Jamie Webster at Common Good Studio.
The film makers tell that their first short film was inspired by their twice-failed efforts to get a certain type of pic into the print issue – no success there. The director, Jamie Webster says he wanted to communicate the real-world effects of our social media affects. His aim was to achieve this without being extreme or dystopic. The main character is Wei Han, a mysterious gentleman, who received support from a body double. The video was shot in downtown Toronto, keeping with a long tradition of Toronto playing New York on film. The two co-founders of ADULT magazine, who also wrote the script to the film in cooperation with Jamie Webster are both born-and-raised Canadians. They present the short film with the words:
“Sit back, dim the lights, and enjoy our LONG EXPOSURE: a very ADULT take on American manhood.”
