NakedSword Wraps 'The Pack,' Mr. Pam Speaks at Columbia
SAN FRANCISCO — NakedSword Original's award-winning director Mr. Pam has just returned from a whirlwind trip to New York after wrapping production on the upcoming NakedSword Original's film called "The Pack."
While in the city that never sleeps Mr. Pam herself hardly had a chance to sleep. After wrapping a seven-day shoot and hosting the red carpet at the RentBoy Hookie Awards, she was asked to speak to the "Sociology of Sexuality" class at NYC's Columbia University about her experience as a director in the adult entertainment industry.
"The Pack" was written and directed by Mr. Pam and was a labor of love that marked the first time NakedSword Originals shot a film outside of California since it's inception as the studio arm of NakedSword more than two years ago. It's also the first time an adult film was shot at NYC's famed Black Party, the company said. The cast includes Raging Stallion exclusive Boomer Banks and newcomer Cam Christou, along with Leo Forte, Blue Bailey, Rafael Alencar, Seven Dixon and Marcus Isaacs. Cameo appearances are seen by Element Eclipse, Eli Lewis (rentboy.com), and Dirk Caber in addition to more than 6,000 Black Party attendees.
"The Pack" was shot in New York including such well-known locations like the Eastern Bloc Bar, Blue Store Chelsea, and 35th Saint at Large. The film centers around a curious young man named Pony (played by sexy- tattooed Cam Christou) who upon arriving in NYC is put to the test by a gang of sadistic-sex-crazed performance artists (Boomer Banks, Leo Forte, Marcus Isaacs & the pack) who challenge his hunger for the alternative lifestyle he craves. The initiation climaxes at the Black Party XXXV in front of a live audience of 6,000-plus party goers, which the company says is a first in the adult industry. The overall story is inspired by the "sexual brotherhood" and real-life friendships between Forte, Banks, Isaacs, Christou, Dixon and Eclipse — both on and off the porn set. When it was all said and done Mr. Pam wrapped "The Pack" with five hardcore sex scenes and one solo.
Pam, who also wrote the film, remarked, "This film 'The Pack' was a true labor of love by the entire cast, crew and friends in New York City. The shoot was extremely challenging: traveling to multiple locations, long days, dialogue scenes in 20-degree weather, plus 12 hours of sex performances and insanity at New York's infamous Black Party. I am so proud of the dedication of my boys, they kept me laughing and gave me the energy to shoot this epic film!"
She added, "On top of shooting super hot sex and edgy story, our cast swept Rentboys' International Hookie Awards! Boomer Banks won the top honor, International Escort of the Year and Best Cock, Leo Forte won Best Fetish and Best Dressed, Blue Bailey won Best Boyfriend Fantasy and I had the honor of hosting the Red Carpet. Oh my god, superstar team! Again, my heart goes out to my wonderful cast and crew, I'm forever grateful for your hard work."
Last week Mr. Pam spoke at Columbia University where she was invited by Jeffrey Escoffier an instructor of the "Sociology of Sexuality" class who's also a published author of the books 'Bigger than Life — History of gay porn" and "Sexual Revolution" among others. Mr. Pam gave a lecture to the class about her experience during the past 10 years as one of the most well-known directors in the adult business.
