Now Available: From Zero to I Love You

In the crowd-pleasing new romantic drama From Zero to I Love You, Noah’s Arc and Boy Culture-star Darryl Stephens plays Pete, a gay man who has played the field for years, avoiding commitment by hooking up with exclusively with married men. Enter handsome model Jack (Scott Bailey of Guiding Light and Prayers for Bobby) who is fifteen years into a seemingly perfect marriage with an enviable wife and two kids.

When Jack and Pete hook up, both assume it’s going to be a one-time-only thing. But an overwhelming desire for a return tryst leads to more down-low action. Suddenly Pete begins to realize that in addition to the incredible sex, he is developing very strong feelings for this new married man. Is it possible that the commitment-phobic Pete and Jack, his supposedly straight lover who has a lot of baggage, will find a future together?

The off the charts chemistry between the two leads adds authenticity to this deeply satisfying obstacle-filled romance. Written and directed by Doug Spearman, the same filmmaker behind the hit 2013 gay action-comedy Hot Guys with Guns, From Zero to I Love You has been a massive hit at film festivals all around the globe.

The Breeding is a Boldly Provocative Thriller

Winner of the “Best Feature” award at the 2018 Harlem International Film Festival, writer-director Daniel Armando’s The Breeding is a boldly provocative erotic thriller about a young African American artist whose obsession with a taboo fetish leads to life-altering consequences.

The story centers around Thomas (Marcus Bellamy), a thirsty queer New York City cartoonist who finds himself distracted and aroused by the men he’s drawing. While his boyfriend is away, he seeks out aggressive sexual experiences. A chance restroom encounter with a recently divorced financier named Lee leaves Thomas curious about exploring the taboo fetish of “race play.” But when the game goes past role-playing and becomes all too problematically real, chilling actions are taken that will forever change the trajectory of these men’s lives.

Part Fatal Attraction, part Get Out, The Breeding is a deeply edgy film that uses the style and tropes of erotic thrillers to examine race-relations, sexuality and cultural identity.
