Falcon Entertainment announces today that famed NY photographer Joe Oppedisano will join Steve Cruz and Leif Gobo on their upcoming Mustang film, “Blue Movie.” Oppedisano will shoot all still photography for the film.
Oppedisano has developed an international name for himself by his photography appearing in a myriad of publications ranging from The New York Times to Gay Times, Playboy to Playgirl and Esquire to Manner aktuell. In 2006 he released his debut coffee-table book, ‘Testosterone’ to critical acclaim. Since then he has released a second book, ‘Uncensored’; two calenders and the erotic film, “Knockout” shot at the world famous Gleason’s Gym in NYC. Falcon’s Director of Promotion commented, “Joe’s photography is raw, bold, uninhibited, and masculine – his style is immediately recognizable and perfect for our Mustang line of films. It’s an honor to have him back as part of the Mustang team.”
Oppedisano is certainly no stranger to Mustang or to Steve Cruz and Leif Gobo. In December of 2006 he worked alongside both Cruz & Gobo on the Mustang film, “Limits” – Cruz & Gobo were immediately impressed with Joe and he with them. Cruz comments, “I first met Joe at a booksigning for ‘Testosterone’, I went with the hopes he might ask me to shoot with him. As it turned out he was scheduled the next day to do photography for “Limits”, which I was a cast member of! We clicked immediately and thus started an amazing professional relationship and friendship. We have worked together several times since “Limits” and when the opportunity arose to direct for Mustang I knew exactly who I wanted for our still photographer.” Gobo commented further, “I’m a huge fan of Joe’s photography and I’m very excited to work with him again – because his background is fashion he brings a fresh perspective to male erotica, his aesthetic is exactly the tone we are looking for.”
Mustang Studios is also proud to include “Afterhours” and “Forced Entry” as films that Oppedisano has done still photography for. Oppedisano commented, “I’m completely excited to work with Steve Cruz and Leif Gobo, these guys share my passion and vision for what male sexuality is all about. I feel a great synergy with them. Over the years Cruz has become somewhat of a muse for me, his energy is infectious and his over-the-top sexuality is what landed him on the cover of my most recent book, ‘Uncensored’. I’m looking forward to an ongoing relationship with these two guys!”
