306: A Short Gay Film, With A Twist

Have you ever watched a short film and wished it was a full-length feature, just so you could learn more? This new video I checked out last night was one of those and I couldn’t help but want to share it with you. It’s called 306 and has played a few gay film festivals receiving the following honors: Official Selection Outfest | Official Selection Honolulu Rainbow Film Festival | Official Selection Miami LGBT Festival. With credit like that, you know it must be good. Here’s a synopsis.

306 is a film that makes the viewer question: Is the closest person in your life normal? A family member, friend, or a lover? What is the norm that we are suppose to follow in life? What is perceived as normal on the outside is usually just a daily costume, which we as people like to dance around in to assimilate into society. The question is: Who is Eric Hays? Or more specifically: What is Eric Hays hiding? 306 gives the viewer a chance to see a secret that no one else gets to see.

The film was directed by Elliot London who is a film producer and director, and founded London Productions in 2007. The sexy male star you’re about to enjoy is Brian Estel, a fairly unknown actor at the moment but hopefully, that’ll soon change. This film really takes your mind on a trip and has a few twists and turns that you don’t expect. It’s a tad but NSFW but if you are at home or on your laptop somewhere, then check out 306 below.

    I enjoyed this and find it very well done on all levels, but I hope we’re not suppose to believe this middle-aged queen is doing anything to this young “stud” that said stud isn’t volunarily allowing to happen.

  • Marcus

    What overly dramatic, completely tired, horrifically unoriginal, borderline homophobic, tragically predictable dreck.

    A story about a “committed straight man” who’s secretly a male prostitute. Gripping … or it would be if we hadn’t seen it a thousand times before; though just skipping the dialogue in favor of the 4,758,456,777,390th recycling of Clair De Lune was different.

    After reading the self-important synopsis, you could smell rentboy from the opening card; and the ending was obvious from the moment they showed the names on the refrigerator and one was gender neutral.

    So I guess what we’re supposed to take away from this clumsy parallel is that cute young “straight guys” can’t be trusted, and will eventually turn into dirty old closet cases that will borderline rape you without protection if you give them half a chance?

    Inspiring!

    Eric should have kept this secret to himself.

    I agree in everything with Marcus.
    I’ve seen a lot of short films better than this one.

  • quite predictable, and falls to another stereotype of gay films, unhappy endings.

  • Steven

    I totally agree with all the above. An insult to my intelligence, gay pride and a total waste of time!

  • Eggsel

    Ditto to Steven, tons of shorts are wat better, and the acting of Mr. Estel is poor and plain hope he stay (if he is) as a model, not cuz you are cute means you can act 😉

    Tyrell, why would you want to see this as a feature? There is nothing more to know from this tired old story. TONS of better short films out there. And just because it gets shown at Outfest doesn’t mean it’s good. Just sayin.

    Hello! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share. With thanks!

    Hey seo, we are currently working on building one but if you have Flipboard, you can check out Homorazzi that way and it’s way more mobile friendly!
