In Their Room – London

Tweetable Logline:

A multi-city documentary series about gay men, bedrooms and intimacy that captures the uncensored zeitgeist of modern gay life.

Elevator Pitch:

“In Their Room” is an multi-city documentary series about gay men, bedrooms and intimacy. The series veers into the bedrooms of men where you see them doing everything from the most banal to the sometimes more erotic. Complimenting the revealing nature of their everyday activities are confessional interviews about fantasies, turn-ons and vulnerabilities. The throughline of the series highlights the ways in which gay men in disparate cultures deal with connection, intimacy and loneliness in the modern world.

Production Team:

Producer-Director-DP-Sound-Editor: Travis Mathews

About the Production:

My inspiration for the series came largely out of a frustration from not seeing accurate, 3-dimensional representations of my life -and that of my friends- in gay media. I reasoned that I should be recording these stories before they were lost or forgotten. I do this as best I can focusing on what feels authentic, modern and uncensored, often including real sex or sexual situations. At its best I hope to capture the zeitgeist through video portraits that have the potential to both comfort and entertain.

Current Status:

I’m fundraising with the intention of filming in just 5 weeks to coincide with the London premiere of my film “I Want Your Love.”
