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

A star isn't born
30 August 2005 | by (Pasadena CA) – See all my reviews

This documentary about a gay porn star's quest to embark on a singing career has surprisingly more depth than I was expecting. Actually, I'm not sure what I was expecting other than a few gratuitous shots of star Colton Ford's body (check) and some insights into the "private" life of a male porn star (check). I was not expecting to have much sympathy for a forty-ish gay man, who has enjoyed fame on what has to be one of the lowest rungs of the celebrity ladder, believing he has any chance of success in the youth-obsessed, very heterosexual world of pop music. Yet Ford's naiveté, at first sad, ultimately comes across as somewhat charming as he chooses dance music as his genre. Never mind that the only "stars" in that field are black female divas, and even they only enjoy a level of fame just a notch above that of a gay male porn star. Ford would have been much better off choosing to be a rock or cabaret singer. But he soldiers on, supported by an apparently devoted partner (fellow porn star Blake Harper) and amazingly understanding parents, and despite the pale efforts of his pathetic "manager". As a documentary, "Naked Fame" won't make Errol Morris shake in his boots, but it's certainly an interesting glimpse of ordinary people trying to cope in a surreal profession.
