In 2001, video game sales eclipsed U.S. domestic box office
movie receipts. This fundamental shift in the entertainment biz was
not lost on Hollywood, which began pumping out movies (Tomb
Raider, Final Fantasy, etc.) targeted at the red-hot gamer's
Moyst is the first porn that utilizes a
video-game-style plot and digital effects to do the same. It's not
just a parody of Myst and other computer adventure games, but
an honest attempt to cop the look and feel of the
Moyst is the brainchild of Hart Williams. From
1977-1987, Williams was a prolific adult industry journalist and
porno screenwriter. He left the industry in 1988 because, as he puts
it, "mostly because I didn't want to watch everyone die of AIDS."
For the last ten years he has turned to the mainstream press,
writing for The Washington Post, The Kansas City Star, The
Oregonian, The Los Angeles Times and similar publications. He
even got involved in politics, working as webmaster for the
Democratic Party of Oregon, as state Democratic Public Relations
Chair, and as a delegate to the 2000 Convention in LA.
happy to report that Williams has now broken ranks with the straight
world and returned to adult with his directorial debut. Moyst
was shot in 1997, when Williams got it in his head that he could
utilize digital technology and his 80's blowbiz experience to make
some high-quality, cheap porno flicks. 5+ years and a shitload of
digital post-production work hence, Williams has turned his dream
Using technology that wasn't in existence at
the outset of the project, Williams has transformed a standard porno
shoot into a surreal video-game fantasy world. All the action takes
place in a virtual, computer-generated universe. The star of the
movie is Alpha, who Williams claims is the first entirely synthetic
character in porn. Alpha is a high-resolution computer-generated 3D
character with computer generated sound/dialogue as well. Check her
out at the moyst.org
Thankfully, this is one porn where high concept and
computer wizardry never pretend to be the real reason we're
watching. At its core, Moyst features five excellent,
real-people fuck scenes. The digital effects work to enhance the
sex, add beauty and otherworldliness, but by no means compensate for
something that isn't there to begin with.
In terms of the
sex, Williams claims that his decade away from the industry cleaned
his palette and gave him a fresh angle what your average porn viewer
wants -- "that is, clean, wholesome all-American sex," Williams
touts in big, bold letters on his site.
The movie contains no spitting, no
cursing, no anal, no lesbian, no condoms, no slapping, no group sex.
Just straight up boy-girl sex scenes, imbued with passion and
intensity. No-frills fucking. "If this is not to your liking, there
are 5000 other filmmakers who will be glad to sell you any sexual
variation that you'd care to name," Williams notes.

you've never planned and shot a porno yourself, check out Hart's
Diary in the r.a.m.e discussion group archives. Williams is a
great writer, and here he retells, in painstaking detail, all the
little nit-picky bullshit that went into Moyst's two-day
shoot in 1997. It's interesting, funny stuff.
