Well,Lezlove desperately needs someone to invest some money into this forum.This site is just a shell of itself both in tech and participation since the days you where a regular contributor!
I very much have to agree. I've been hanging around here for 12 years now, and a few members have been doing it even longer. In all that time this site has never been updated or improved,and has only become cluttered and difficult to navigate. Perhaps the owner should consider selling it to someone who would update and improve it.
If I remember correctly I think the "moderated posts" things will disappear after you've made 10 posts.
That would be correct. Not sure if the forums are even moderated anymore, considering all the uncivil crap that LWF gets away with. And the best way to post is keep backing out and coming back in when the error page comes up. It's an ongoing annoyance but can be overcome. And be sure to save your work before attempting to post.
Anon, I really want to direct g/g again, and I'm looking for a way to do it on the regular. I'm reaching out to different companies to see if they want to collab with me or develop a new site. I have a lot of ideas, trust me! I'm also continuing to develop my own site, but I won't be able to create as much content as quickly on my own as I would if I had a big partner or studio behind me. That said, in order to return to shooting full time and give up my day job, a project would have to be something really special that I could feel happy devoting myself to.As for Ricky directing all of the Sweetheart movies, part of it was a timing thing. Mile High decided to make some changes at Sweetheart right around the time Ricky came on board to do a few features as a guest director. Ricky has a very high technical/filmmaking skill level, so when it came time to go in a new direction, Mile High decided Ricky's vision would be a good one for the brand. And it's true that Ricky's been trying out new themes and forging into new territory -- he's excited about seeing what the possibilities are. The handful of movies he's released under the Sweetheart banner so far have done well in sales, which suggests that many fans are responding to his work. I'm consulting with Ricky on some of the "fundamentals" of g/g porn and letting him know the kinds of things g/g fans like to see. He's very open to suggestions and he wants to learn more about the genre and make you guys happy. So going forward, try not to just trash him; instead explain what you feel is working and what isn't. He wants to know! And he wants to develop into a great g/g filmmaker. The enthusiasm is there. For those of you who are wondering why I didn't just go back to doing Sweetheart, I understand that it seems like a no-brainer, but it was really a timing issue, a branding issue, and also a burnout issue. Once I gave notice to Mile High that I was going to leave the gay studio I was directing, I really felt like I needed to take a break and focus on law school and get a 9-5 job. I'm doing that now, but at the same time I don't want to give up the things about filmmaking that I once loved. I loved doing g/g -- it was the time in my career that I was happiest. But Sweetheart needed to evolve just as I was feeling like I needed to slow down (if not stop altogether.) Meanwhile, Ricky was fresh on the scene and raring to go and take Sweetheart to the next level, from a cinematic perspective. He had a crew ready to move across the country with him and hit the ground running. Anyway, I have a very good relationship with Mile High, so who knows what the future may bring? And I'm also starting to communicate with other studios and see what other opportunities might be out there, which is something new for me. I've never really looked around or talked to anyone (hermit). I'm confident I'll be directing g/g again regularly in the near future.
