SAN FRANCISCO — NakedSword has announced the expansion of the NakedSword network to now include the newly minted independent film division, NakedSword Film Works (NSFW).

NSFW expands upon NakedSword's vision of creating independent gay shorts and features that combine sex with experimental filmmaking which began with 2013's "I Want Your Love." 

Today, with NSFW, NakedSword presents the directorial debut of veteran Bay Area dancer, musician, artist, actor and publisher of cult queer zine “Fag School," Brontez Purnell. Purnell was an actor in "I Want Your Love" and makes his directorial debut with this semi-autobiographical “video mix tape" called "100 Boyfriends Mixtape."

Relying on this punk rock aesthetic to give the world a peek into his perspective, Purnell takes the viewer on a hardcore ride through his sex life. The “Mixtape” in the title is a commentary on how the short was filmed on a mix of formats, like digital video, VHS and 8 MM film.

"100 Boyfriends Mixtape" recalls Purnell's search for a boyfriend as he goes from one guy to the next. Purnell describes it as "the story of 100 different failed relationships condensed down into the story of one relationship and the surrounding drama around it." He calls it "essentially a choreo-movie (not dealing in straight narrative but with pictures, voice over, text, poetry, performance pieces, etc.).”

NakedSword CEO and founder Tim Valenti said, "We are very excited to be launching our new independent film division with '100 Boyfriends Mixtape.' Brontez Purnell's raw storytelling is both compelling and entertaining and it's the perfect addition to our robust content offerings on NakedSword. This will be the beginning of many more shorts that we are producing and releasing on NakedSword.com throughout 2016."
