First Behind the Scenes Footage From AWAKE!
Only one more day until the premiere of Part One of AWAKE. Check out the first behind-the-scenes video footage of the film and watch as the A-List cast takes over Mykonos for the grueling shoot as they cliff jumped, fought, scaled a lighthouse, were hit by cars, were filmed underwater and had plenty of passionate sex! Go behind the scenes for the first time with the three main actors Jessy Ares, Jonathan Agassi and Mitchell Rock as they lead the men to open their eyes and feel everything, AWAKE!
“Awake is my favorite story we’ve told, especially in terms of emotion and the love and sex between gay men,” says writer and director Marc MacNamara. “Every so often I hear people comment, ‘why make these large, elaborate, big-budget productions when it’s just so guys can jerk off?’ But for me porn is not just about getting off, it’s about relating to someone else with your desires and living through them. We don’t all fuck the pizza guy or the delivery boy but as men we have had the challenge of love and sex in real-life. If someone wants to get off then they want to be excited and Awake does that like nothing else I’ve seen before. We truly are mixing the industries of mainstream and adult.”
“Shooting in Mykonos was both majestic and challenging,” says Production Manager Rusty Ford. “Mykonos is quite a journey from New York and every detail had to be planned for in advance. However, as you know, things don’t always go as planned but we adapted and made the production even better. All in all, it was a very exciting and sexy time. All of the models and crew stayed at a gorgeous villa on the northern tip of the island. We had plenty of fun working together and playing as well.”
“I’m extremely proud that I made the box cover! I LOVE it,” says star Jessy Ares. “It was the most exciting movie that I have ever filmed. And the cast is full of the most popular gay porn stars of today. I am so excited for this movie, it’s amazing!”
