Admittedly, the second entrant in our Gay Short Film Showcase is partially an advert for a porn site, but it is also a genuine short film in its own right, taking us into the heady world of gay nightclubs, the pulse of the music and the rush of hooking up.
Then it takes us back to one of the guys apartments where, err, other things happen (this was funded by a porn studio, after all, so it wasn’t going to end with anything else, was it?).
Here’s the synopsis: ‘We’ve all been there before. As you enter the club, there’s something in the air tonight. You feel open; ready for whatever. A sexy stranger catches your eye. Next, you’re grinding with him on the dance floor, your hands exploring his body for the first time.
‘You get a little carried away. Maybe you drink a little too much. Your lips lock and you don’t care who sees. You lose yourself in the pulsing music under the flashing neon lights. What began as an ordinary night out turns into a wild ride full of uninhibited fun and unforgettable sex, from what you can remember.
‘Filmed at the legendary Rich’s night club in San Diego, Helix Studios presents “Body Language”, our ode to getting lost in the moment.’
Yes, it is about the rush and the pulse, but it also (perhaps inadvertently) makes a few interesting points about the more hedonistic end of gay culture. Take a look below.
