Former gay porn star Colton Ford has decided to get out of the porn business to follow his life long passion, music and being a professional singer. But, can he break away from his gay porn past, and achieve success in the mainstream music industry without the porn stigma holding him back? Director Christopher Long has crafted an unusual documentary by following Ford, his partner Blake Harper (who also wants to escape his porn career), and their interactions with a variety of professional music, club, and porn industry veterans. It's a bumpy ride, but hopefully a successful path to what Ford believes is his destiny. Written by trivwhiz

Naked Fame? More like Naked Flame Out
22 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So what is one to do if you are a porno star with fading looks? I know, become a pop star! This documentary - and I use the term loosely - follows the trials and tribulations of Colton as he tries to transform himself from a gay porn star into a singer of electronic (read: dance) music. I only wish Mr Ford's voice was as muscular as his arms...sorry to say his vocals are painfully thin. There isn't much interesting going on here but Mr Ford and friends are eye candy.

See him record a song that sounds exactly like every other mindless dance tune. See him travel to New York to make "connections." See him go back to L.A. with little success. See yourself look in the mirror and ask, " Why am I wasting time watching this mess?"
