“JOURNEY TO ITALY” turns 20. Yes, we were in production these very days 20 years ago!
“In 1997, Men of Odyssey made me an offer I could not refuse — helming a movie in my own country. The end result, Journey to Italy was nothing short of a disaster, despite its lofty budget. But it taught me a lot. I think of it as my hardcore boot camp.” (YNOT interview).
“We rented two Betacam SP cameras in Milan and converted the PAL originals into NTSC dubs here in Los Angeles. Imagine the dozens of bulky Betacam SP tapes and the hundreds of film rolls going through customs. Imagine the costs of renting video equipment in Milan, converting the tapes into a different system and of developing film.” (XBiz interview)
“His ‘Journey’, however, was the first gay porn to take a shot at non-linear editing”, continues XBiz. “It was cut on a gigantic Avid Media Composer — using the same post-production house and same editor (both expensive) Kazan had used for a mainstream feature a year earlier”.
Below the press kit Men of Odyssey sent out (to look like Derek Cameron’s own photobook… nice touch) and the Derek Cameron interview in Italian monthly “ADAM” (“Piu’ bello di cosi’ “)
