Over The Hump
Recently some friends asked me if I wanted to be a part of the film festival for a local free paper
called The Portland Mercury. The festival, called "The Hump" is a festival that has a few categories,
but the main focus is porn. They have all kinds of crazy stuff, including everything you could ever
imagine that has to do with sex. Some of it is really well done. I told them that if they came up with the
concepts, I would offer my filming, editing, and soundtracking services, as well with a hand in the
direction. We decided to do a couple just to have a chance and hit a broader spectrum of audience
that is really hard to please here in this rainy city, where most of the time most folks are eating,
drinking, working at a strip club, or jerking off to some kind of pornography, fetish, or kink. Hey
"Kink"! There is a category I could sink my teeth into, and in fact is one of the categories for "The
Hump". The criteria was it had to be something to do with sex, and it had to be five minutes or less.
Hmmm. It is actually harder to do what you want to do or say in that short period of time but the
concepts that ended up being what we went with, worked perfectly in our eyes.
Film # 1: F.U.C.K. "For Unlawful Carnival Knowledge" Click HERE to view this film for free)
This was a scene where a clown approaches a girl sitting at a bench outside of the Carnival/circus,
who is deathly afraid of clowns and freaks, until he gives her a lollypop, shaped like a penis, and
balloons. He asks if she wants the big surprise and she says yes, so he gives it to her. It is payed by
our own Steevie and Creature, who are both fantastic, and it will make you pee your pants, and at the
same time say, "damn, that is kinda hot". We thought it would win for sure! My friend SmokeM2D6 did
the soundtrack, and we went with it!
Film # 2: "Knife" (Click HERE to view this film for free)
This film was all one take, 5:03, shooting on a tripod, in a perfectly lit concrete corner of the studio,
with Steevie in an old dental chair getting her clothes cut off by the same sharp switchblade that is
used to fuck her with. It is so well done, and took one take. I thought it looked really raw and dark,
especially with the villainous lovers in Black Leather, and lace. I put some off the wall acid dubstep
"beetlejuice" remix and it went perfect when I lined it up on Final Cut.
I went back to work after they were both turned in. After a couple months went by and we found out
F.U.C.K. was not accepted into the fest. Boo! Then people started talking about the premier a few
weeks later and I found out the knife took 1st place for "Kink" category!! Wow, the $1000 prize was
cool but just hearing the filmies, hipsters, and film festival fags, were buzzing and talking about
something I did, ahahaha! If they only knew who I really was. I will never actually go to the festival, but
will contribute every year! It was fun!
So making it "Over The Hump" has more than one meaning by the way, well at least for me. After the
hell of being ill, scraping by, being robbed of my art, and profits, burglarized, and having everything
in the house break, oh and the car, we are going to be over the hump after this month. We actually
have a great deal of content storing as well so we are not living by what we shoot everyday. I know
we deserve this and have every intention of keeping our nose to the grindstone. It is so difficult to
have a successful business in this economy.
I owe it to each and every one of you! Give Thanks!

The festival sounded like fun, Chris! I love your description of Portland
("...where most of the time most folks are eating, drinking, working at a strip club,
or jerking off to some kind of pornography, fetish, or kink...") Sounds a lot like my
neck of the woods here in Florida, except with a lot fewer clothes on due to the
Congratulations on the win for "Knife"...a hot little film, to be sure! Of course
Stevie is always great (I flat out loved her in Succubus).
And we are thankful for you too, my friend!

Sounds like you had fun with this Chris and yes kudos on your contest win hon! I
enjoyed watching both of the films you entered though I gotta admit clowns creep
me out lol. Still I'm with Othello about Stevie she has attitude to burn, and that's
my kinda girl. The knife play in the winning flick was very hot. Congrats again

I have to say, I found your winning film, "Knife", to be almost hypnotically sexy.
The way that she responded to the caress of the switchblade knife had me
gasping. I was conscious of her breath, of her eyes, her mouth...her whole body
seemed hyper-eroticized. An amazing piece of kinky sexual art. Congratulations.

Thanks all! It was a blast and yes next year I will have two more entries. I am
trying to think of some good scenes to jot down and go over before I shoot them. I
think this time i will enter it myself too, instead of through Steevie and her
partner...haha they took the whole $1000...hahah I never saw a dime! They did
say however that it did go towards the new heater in the big
