Computer graphics company Priceless Films has combined rotoscope animation techniques with adult video in Drawn for Porn
, the first in a five-volume series described as "a comic come to life."
Recently seen in Richard Linklater's A Scanner Darkly
, rotoscoping combines hand-drawn and CGI animation, matted on top of live action footage.
"We both have a love of art, and we sort of messed around doing the rotoscoping technique for the last couple of years, and we were like, 'Let's give the adult industry a go, and try something unusual,'" said Tahl Price, who co-founded Priceless Films with his brother Darron.
"The footage was taken from footage that we own," Tahl explained. "But all the actors, all the faces, they're all made up. The first one is a bunch of different vignettes, kind of like a gonzo thing, and the following ones will have more of a storyline." Drawn for Porn
has yet to find a distributor, but the company is "contemplating distributing ourselves," Tahl noted. "We're really looking to go through someone else if we can, but we have the means to do it ourselves."
The first installment of Drawn for Porn
took approximately six months to produce, according to the Prices, and runs an hour and 25 minutes. For additional information, call Tahl Price at (818) 822-2982 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
