Studio Spotlight: Blath forges their own porn path with Foxclore Films

Foxclore Films

PinkLabel.TV’s newest studio addition is Foxclore Films. The UK based studio is helmed by Blath, an alternative model, trained photographer, and self-taught filmmaker, a graduate from the University of the Arts London. Blath was recently featured on BBC’s Queer Britain: Porn Idols and their work has screened at the London Porn Film Festival, Scottish Queer International Film Festival, and Berlin Porn Film Festival. We had a chance to pick their brain about their beautiful films and what it means to join PinkLabel.TV’s international curation.

 

Foxclore Films joins a global curation of adult filmmakers on PinkLabel.TV. How do online places like this help artists like yourself?

The pool of filmmakers on PinkLabel.TV is really inspiring. It can feel isolating making these kind of films, with only a few colleagues in your city or even country. Places like this – whether physical or digital – that bring those visions together to form a collective are great for fostering a feeling of community and direction.

I love the fact we can take the best parts of the internet age – like non-geographical communities, distribution of ideas, spread of information – and apply it to areas such as porn and queer art. I think it makes for better contributions and conversations around those things. This site is a great resource for doing that.

What are your philosophies on depicting sex or sensuality in movies, and how does this inform your filmmaking process?

My philosophy is pretty much to make the porn you want to see in the world. I had a lot of ideas for films revolving around sexual themes, and thought about pitching them to other people, before I realized I could learn the skills to make them myself and have full creative control to realize those ideas. It’s the same process I’ve always done: when I was a photographer, I wanted a model but couldn’t find or afford a suitable one, so I became the suitable one. Here, I became the suitable director, cinematographer, performer, editor – everything I could manage. I’m still learning all of those roles, but that’s what makes the process interesting for me. I love seeing my process progress and my films get better as a direct result of that.

I know my films aren’t hugely marketable to the typical “porn consumer” archetype, but I’m not interested in making things for a mostly imaginary person who’s being hugely over-catered to anyway. I’m interested in getting my own ideas from head to screen – and hoping that when someone sees that screen with those ideas, it resonates. It bounces back. They find it hot, or beautiful, or interesting, or hopefully some mix of all of those. Someone gets it.
