Christopher Rage's Orgy

Christopher Rage's Orgy
...
Director: Christopher Rage
...
Christopher Rage's Orgy remains a pioneering work, and served as the inspiration for many party videos that came well after it.
...
"Christopher Rage's ORGY is a descent into the fantasy-filled world of orgiastic sex. It is a seemingly endless tangle of arms and legs, cocks and asses, with an extraordinary variety of attractive men. Each of the performers was extremely excited at the prospect of joining eight of the hottest men in the world for several hours of uninhibited lovemaking, and the excitement fills the videotape from beginning to end. The video techniques involved are unlike any that have ever been released and the incredible life-like quality of video lends an authenticity to Christopher Rage's ORGY that enhances the eroticism enormously."
...
In January 1983, Christopher Rage was at the beginning of his pornmaking career. ORGY, his sixth film, was also his most experimental to date, getting out of the sex club or bar (or most frequently, out of Rage's apartment!) and making use of a traditional soundstage studio, two cameras, and modern real-time editing equipment. It is that editing equipment, in retrospect perhaps overly utilized, that caused the greatest criticism of ORGY, as the film tends to jump from scene to scene, mixing up portions, and seemingly interspersing footage from one scene to another. Only after reviewing the source footage did it become apparent that scenes were intentionally interspersed - -and in one case, two scenes filmed simultaneously, making an interesting use of the two-camera shoot.
Rage was the first gay pornographer to use modern video technology, in this case, videotape and the online editing booth. His cuts were sometimes quick, sometimes slow, sometimes well-timed and at other times (well, charitably) out of place. In particular, the wipe, a technique widely used in film but a transition that took years to reach television, was clearly one of his favorite transitions. Rage's edit was experimental and revolutionary for porn. He later said, "It's really the editing that gives them their shape and form and any concept. Impressive, given that ORGY was taped in a single evening, with only mere seconds of on-the-street footage shot at a later date edited in.
ORGY was also one of the first films Rage made and licensed certain rights to. In particular, the most popularly-distributed (first on Beta, then on VHS) version of ORGY is widely criticized as being cut up, the best parts removed, and generally, butchered. This restoration is of Rage's original cut, with specific elements replicated exactly as they appeared on the versions Rage himself sold. The source footage contained extensive additional material, and even an exterior shot of Colon Topor on a Manhattan rooftop looking over the city, used in the commercial edit, but omitted here simply because Rage did not use it in his "personal" version.
The expanded edit, then, makes use of the additional and extensive footage that never made it into either Rage's edit, nor the commercial edit sold throughout the 80's and 90's. In creating the expanded edit, it was as though looking through a lens at the scenes captured more than 20 years ago, but with today's eye for transition and flow. The real time edits that Rage made were cemented into the source footage, and were both difficult to work around, and at the same time, pleasing to work into a longer version. In researching ORGY, I quickly realized Rage's use of video technology which I initially found annoying and disconcerting ultimately won him great praise and accolades. More than that: Rage gave definition to a whole genre of porn.
It was - and is - those wipes, cuts and jumping from scene to scene that give ORGY the feel of an orgy. It's not all smooth fucking and sucking; in real life, there are stops and starts, fits of peak and moments of sheer boredom. Rage summed up his approach to ORGY saying, "The real good sex performers, as far as I'm concerned, are people who really want to do something.
...
As Topar fucks a masked man, director Christopher Rage keeps the focus on Topar's great ass.
...
Rage uses close-ups very sparingly, which allows for a fuller view of all the action, though the camera work can be a little distracting as well. Scenes are spliced into something of a montage.

(from one of Rage's original brochures:) S&M from top to bottom - 60 full minutes of no-holds-barred passion and action as only Christopher Rage could bring them to you.
...
Rage liked to work with this set of models, with several appearing in numerous other videos he made.
Through my restorative efforts, I found the source footage to be in excellent condition, while the original master had deteriorated somewhat. I remained true to the original edit despite the large amount of additional material shot at the time, and the DVD extras show that Rage was prolific.
