Concept Video… AUSSIE

This concept piece is inspired by the aesthetics seen in Western Sydney Suburbia featuring François Sagat as a third generation Middle Eastern man / woman.

The piece explores the conflicting coexistence of elements in society; modern vs. traditional, men vs. women, Middle East vs. White Australia. Remarkably though, all these elements constitute the fabric of Australian multiculturalism.

Despite the initial boundaries, may they be visual, cultural, sub-cultural, religious, ethnic, gender or sexual, our common goals and aspirations unite us despite the individual fears and stereotypes we have about the other.

In this piece François Sagat reflects on the battle of masculinity vs. femininity, traditional vs. modern society and how this transition from traditional to modern created a whole sub-culture which has (unfortunately) become a victim of discrimination by both traditional and modern sides.
This piece is not a reflection on Islam, or Muslim people in Australia. On the contrary, it is an abstract work of art interpreting battles of identity that today’s youth are fighting whilst in the process of determining who they are.

As a society it is our responsibility to accept each other, and not live by the prejudices and stereotypes of our forebears, but see beyond the veils and smoke.
We must open our eyes and see the humanity in every person we encounter and learn to accept them wholly, seeing the way they are as integral and vital in our journey together – the one that that we call life.

I Am Not Going Away, But….

I have many projects coming out. I have been very busy and not posting here as much. I want to tell you everything. But I do not plan to make porn again. No regrets. Just new goals.

Incubus 2 was my last porn but will not be my last movie. Good to always go out on your high note and leave people wanting more. And more you will get, just not more of the same.

T-Rex’ “20TH CENTURY BOY” (JeanLuc Verna Vs Francois Sagat) by ” I Apologize” . from sagat on Vimeo.

Had a concert last thursday …with the rock band ” I Apologize” in centre George Pompidou which is a fantastic place… very big ! (a museum , performances area)

I was singing 3 songs in duet as a “guest” …I am not taking myself seriously ..this is FUN.

Here is a preview of one song … Not very Good filming … but it’s still giving an idea …
I’m not a singer but it was fun … and its fun to show.

There were professional cameramen , with 3 cameras, so I ll get good shots of everything , but Im afraid I will have to wait a couple month , the time they edit … bla bla bla bla

I hope you enjoy

Goodbye, my friend.

Erik Rhodes/ James, Someone I had a crush on the first time we met more than 6 years ago… so funny, impressive, charming and very clever…

I was one of his first readers, following his blogs and stories. A misunderstood man in some ways, but so analytic, specific, with his own imagination, world and a huge sensibility that I’ve always respected. A sweet big man to me.

We’ve worked together on 2 projects and I always took the chance to interact with a very cool and nice guy, full of stories to tell …

I wish we could have been closer friends … 30 is terrible age to die

I’m really sorry for his brother, parents and all his friends, co-workers…his memory will stay intact …I will never forget, James.

You were already a legend. RIP.
