The Short Films of Bobby Poirier

Velvet Candy Entertainment has recently entered a creative partnership with the very talented Bobby Poirier, who is cowriting the feature STRANGE RELATIONS with Doug Prinzivalli. Here is a sampling of Bobby's earlier work:


Traditional Family Vampires




Still in development: WILDCAT ROAD–a jet black comedy paying homage to the wild 1960's era exploitation films. WILDCAT ROAD is the story of three studmuffin go-go boys (Mack, Jett and Kevenn) who hit the hot desert road after accidentally killing their crooked boss. Along with Tammy, the spitfire female hostage they pick up along the way, they find deadly situations, thrilling encounters, balls-out action, steamy sex and possibly some hidden treasure ... as they uncover the lurid mystery of the old ranch on Wildcat Road. Velvet Candy Entertainment and Dark Blue Films bring you the genre-busting roadtrip of a lifetime.


SWITCHCRAFT: A Sex Comedy Written and Directed by Sean Abley

In Development:
"These guys are going to be playing for the other team..."

PROLOGUE: Late 1600s. Henry, an English colonist, casts a spell over Caleb, causing his compatriot to lust only for him. Discovered by the town magistrate, the two men are condemned and the cabin they share burned to the ground.

TODAY: A bachelor party, spending the weekend at a house deep in the Massachusetts wilderness, unwittingly releases the erotic energy, along with the ghosts of Caleb and Henry. One by one the men succumb to their newly developed sexual urges for each other.

SWITCHCRAFT is a gay sex comedy, filled with hot men, steamy sex scenes, and tons of laughs.



Now in development: Picking up months after the events in SOCKET, SOCKET 2: BRAIN CELL begins with Murphy waking from his coma to find Dr. Andersen is not only in on his secret life, she's taken the fetish to extreme new levels. She and the handsome Dr. Phillips (a new character revealed to be the instigator of the first movie's events, and Murphy's ex-boyfriend as well) have discovered a way to "plug" into the human brain. Using this technology the doctors enter the still comatose Bill's consciousness with terrifying results.
SOCKET 2: BRAIN CELL surpasses the original with highly charged sex scenes, scares, and twisted humor, redefining the term "mindfuck". From the same team at Dark Blue Films and Velvet Candy Entertainment who brought you the original.


Announcing K-TOWN P.I.

Among the half-dozen or so projects that Velvet Candy has in the pipeline, K-TOWN P.I. is one of the most unique and buzzworthy.
A film noir homage set in L.A.'s Koreatown with an (almost) all Asian cast and a sharp, funny script by the talented Erin Quill. K-TOWN P.I. will be directed by Chil Kong (SCREENING PARTY, THE MIKADO PROJECT), produced by John Carrozza (SOCKET, SCREENING PARTY, REUNION, THE MIKADO PROJECT, THE DEFENDERS) with a projected Autumn 2009 start date. Keep your eyes tuned to this blog for exciting news about this and other Velvet Candy productions.


REUNION in San Francisco

From The San Francisco Bay Times

The Frameline International Film Festival unspools June 18 - 28 in Bay Area theaters. Here’s an advance guide to the hot tickets.

Fun in Boys Shorts Saturday June 20, 11:00 am, Castro and Sunday June 28, 2:15 pm, Castro

This collection of short films includes a few highlights. Dennis Hensley’s witty and charming Reunion may be the best of the bunch. A twenty year-old itch is scratched when a gay guy reunites with a straight high school hunk he was crushed on and someone acts on his desires. It’s arch and enjoyable.


PORNOGRAPHY: You Know You Want to Watch.

Here's the amazing trailer for a film called PORNOGRAPHY from our friends at Triple Fire.
Doug from Velvet Candy worked on this film as Production Designer and Property Master. PORNOGRAPHY will be hitting the festival circuit in the summer of '09. 
World Premiere: Newfest, the New York LGBT Film Festival, June 8.
Frameline, the San Francisco LGBT Film Festival, June 21.
