Vest2015 Grabby Award NominationsSeattle, WA – A couple days ago the 2015 Grabby Award Nominations were posted to the Grabby’s website. Although I began my hiatus from the industry in January of 2014, the content and features produced toward the end of 2013 didn’t street (or get released) until after the beginning of 2014 thereby making them eligible for this year’s Grabbys. Among the four-hundred-thirty-plus nominees in twenty-nine categories, our cast and crew at FetishForce earned three nominations. In addition to FetishForce.com being nominated for Best Fetish Site, both Sounding #9 and Warehouse Kinks were nominated in the Best Fetish Movie Category. Read the rest of this entry »

Which Brings Us to Spring 2014

Vest Which Brings Us to Spring 2013Seattle, WA – this Spring marked the release of three additional features I directed and occasionally appeared in for Falcon / Raging Stallion Studios. Those titles where Warehouse Kinks for the FetishForce line and its companion title Warehouse Fists for Fisting Central, in addition to the most recent FetishForce release of Sounding 9. It also brought our team’s 2014 Best Fetish Grabbys Awards win for the Trustees, staring Brian Bonds, Dirk Caber, Draven Torres, Jessie Colter, Leo Forte, Preston Steel and Race Cooper. It was an excellent accolade to mark my seven years of work in the industry focused on documenting the best of contemporary gay male BDSM and fetish content. Since I did not attend, my pup, the ever entertaining Element Eclipse (pictured above) was able to accept the award and express our thanks to the Grabbys, the studio and everyone involved in the production on my behalf.

VestIt's Been a Busy Few Years: Winter & Spring 2013Seattle, WA – In January of 2013, Fisting Central released Dude Where’s My Watch. Then in February, Hoodies streeted under the FetishForce line followed by yet another Fisting Central release, Barefoot an Fisted in March. Then in April we released the FetishForce feature, Backyard Boys. Although I didn’t travel to Chicago later that spring for the Grabbys or International Mr Leather, we did learned that Safeword had won the Grabby for Best Fetish Extreme. When i heard of our nomination, I had asked Leo Forte to accept on our behalf should we win. He did and by all accounts did an excellent job.

It’s Been a Busy Few Years: Winter & Spring 2012

VestIt's Been a Busy Few Years: Winter & Spring 2012Seattle, WA – Winter 2012 brought the release of Sounding 7: RAMROD which I co-directed with Chris Ward being released later in the winter. It is also around this time that our crew began shooting content for Raging Stallion’s Fisting Central line and I began honing my camera skills. In the spring of 2012 FetishForce released what I would consider my most creative endeavor, Pony Up! which was shot here in Seattle on location at the Pony bar during the harshest snow storms of the previous winter. Even with all the challenges it still stands as one of my favorite production runs of all time, thanks to the cast of players and crew. It truly was a labor of love and the final feature reflects all that fact. Later that spring I attended the Grabby Awards in Chicago, IL and returned home with the Grabby for Best Duo for my scene with Adam Killian in the Other Side of Aspen VI.

It is the epic sixth installment of the iconic Falcon series directed by Chris Ward after Falcon and Raging Stallion merged early in the year and I was included in this truly star-studded cast. I was also in the cast of Hard Friction’s Live Sex co-directed by Bruno Bond and Steve Cruz. FetishForce released my directorial debut for the studio, Industrial Encounters and Sounding 6: Wet Punk Faggot Sounding, which I co-directed with Chris Ward. Also released was Golden Gate: Season 2 – The Perfect Ten in which I had the pleasure of being directed by Tony Dimarco. This was also the spring I co-hosted the Grabbys and Kennel Master which I co-directed with Paul Wild for Titan Media’s Rough line won the Grabby for Best Fetish Extreme.
