Tom Faulk Issues Statement On Falcon/NakedSword GoFundMe For Dirt, Blames Str8UpGayPorn For “Blacklisting”
Last Friday night, Tom Faulk launched a GoFundMe for what he stated was a Falcon Studios movie, which then became a GoFundMe for a NakedSword movie on Saturday, and then became a GoFundMe for Tom Faulk’s own movie on Saturday night, and then became a GoFundMe for nothing at all by Sunday night when it was pulled down completely.
How the GoFundMe appeared during all its transitions:
Now, Tom Faulk has written a Tumblr post about the GoFundMe (which, as you’ll recall, was asking for $3,500 to buy a pile of dirt), the movie, the race track, and more. In short, it sounds (but it’s not clear at all?) like the dirt money was for Tom’s personal use (even though he used Falcon/NakedSword’s name on the GoFundMe), but also that the land where the dirt was going would eventually be used by the studio for the movie? Again, it’s not clear, but he does state that he was told by a Falcon/NakedSword director that he could raise the money himself for the dirt:
i was told by a director i could fundraise for my material if i chose too, and authorized me to give out memberships and etc to some of the bigger contributors
Towards the end of the post, Tom Faulk claims that he’s now “blacklisted forever from the execs at a company” because of the GoFundMe he launched using their names. And, of course, he’s blaming Str8UpGayPorn for that blacklisting, as well as for the GoFundMe removal. Also, it’s Str8UpGayPorn’s fault that people “wasted” $300 donating to the pulled GoFundMe, which Tom Faulk advertised to his own social media followers and fans:
str8upgayporn, all you managed to do somehow is get me blacklisted forever from the execs at a company, and even after changing our info on gofundme the account is gone and we lost the 300 dollars in it forever. so thanks for that. you wasted others peoples money for no reason other than to talk shit to a studio that frankly has some of the very nicest people involved in porn.
Well, that makes sense. Str8UpGayPorn would like to officially apologize to anyone who wasted their money on Tom Faulk’s GoFundMe for dirt.
Quick reminder: One way to not have someone talk about your GoFundMe is for you to not advertise the GoFundMe on social media. Or, and I know this sounds crazy, but you could also not launch the GoFundMe at all if you don’t want anyone to talk about the fact that you launched a GoFundMe.
Monday. 7 days until my movie.
Jarec is in prison for blackmail and guns, Sebastian is going to the electric chair for raping his daughter, but im a bad guy for asking for dirt for my film project? LOL
Over the last month or two I have been building and prepping a fleet of 9 motorcycles, over the entire winter I have spent thousands of dollars on dirt.
My very own mx track… cool right? A director approached me with writing and starring in a adult film on my property. Having never gotten to write or even been asked an opinion on anything related to my work from any company ever I JUMPED for the opportunity.
My friends gay and straight alike have been working furiously as time gets closer to this shoot. Is it so wrong to ask for help towards the end?
I do realize now that maybe kickstarter would have been a better outlet, but
I also dont think people realize that 200 dollars of dirt is a giant dump truck of dirt not some tiny patch of mulch that that blog pictured the other day.
I have had to pay my friends in beer and good wishes as we have bought skid steers (bobcats) , premium track dirt, filler dirt, water systems, and then hand dug all the parts to make it flow together seamlessly.
as far as anyone’s first time engineering project could go, It went AMAZING, but we just need it so much bigger! because…
my uncles land is for sale because he cant afford it anymore. everything is going to be gone, and the magic place i grew up at and swam at and rented when i first started porn is going to be gone forever. this movie is not just some random collections of scenes to me, this was is my only way to keep hanging on to it from my scene rate, my writers fee, property rental. we just wanted one more summer and as they say if you build it they will come.
and then i wanted to rent out the track to people wanting to learn how to ride MX without traveling far.
way more than any of that though, i wanted to be seen as i am and not how other think me to be on screen for once in my life.
as far as (porn company) “needing money” thats bullcrap. but i was told by a director i could fundraise for my material if i chose too, and authorized me to give out memberships and etc to some of the bigger contributors
i am assuming Now that they only meant privately. gofundme was my best friends idea, and I went with it because most of the time I am the only ones making decisons on this project and i thought he could help.
we have raised thousands of dollars on our own from a select group of really nice people but the more we run our track the more we realized how much farther we could jump with more, how much faster we could race and showcase something that was literally part of me.
I never meant to embarrass a studio, i know the only reason why is because i dropped a name, but to be clear, they didn’t need help. I DID. to bring something i wrote and have lived and love to every single one of my fans.
I cant believe how twisted something can get from asking for literal dirt. I have a sport that my friends and I love and it keeps me happy, when we read that article we were ashamed of ourselves for even thinking for a second some asshole wouldn’t crucify us for it. I think DIRT is probably the most innocent thing a guy in porn has ever asked for, and in fact i got it from my family for my birthday and christmas and my anniversary as well. this isnt some kind of scam. I’m just trying to build something that’s amazing and lasts. is that so wrong of me?
str8upgayporn, all you managed to do somehow is get me blacklisted forever from the execs at a company, and even after changing our info on gofundme the account is gone and we lost the 300 dollars in it forever. so thanks for that.
you wasted others peoples money for no reason other than to talk shit to a studio that frankly has some of the very nicest people involved in porn.
I am just a weird kid in a big state. to be clear to the world i never tried to use a fundraiser in a porn company’s name, but that i’m building something featured by one. but maybe i should have been more clear that this was just MY project and has been for more than 6 months.
the fact that we are shooting a porn on my location is relevant though. because i wanted to shoot sequels. sadly, this will probably never happen since my misuse of words (having never fund raised for anything before) has already cost me dearly.
In ending , if you actually read all of this, you are cool as fuck and i hope your having a good day. i was out in the woods yesterday hitting some giant free jumps and wrecked and banged myself up so i will be in bed for a few days.
BUT the movie is still going down, everything will be fine. everything is semi perfect, my only wish is i could add on more before you all see it,
i am so proud of myself for writing and script and delivering on everything i needed to this year. it took me 6 years in porn before ANYONE gave me a chance and ONE DAY to make it to where it will never happen again.
no regrets . no dream is too small.
Bizarrely, no one at Falcon/NakedSword has bothered to issue a statement about Tom Faulk using their name to launch the GoFundMe. Instead, they’re fine with just letting him do all the talking.
