ABOUT ME

I was born in September 1971.  I’ve been married since October 1994.  My wife and I are child-free by choice – we don’t want that kind of expense or responsibility.  I make my living as a Customer Service Rep for a credit card bank.  My wife is permanently disabled.

MY FETISH

I’m a fantasy death fetishist. That means I get off on watching consenting adults role-play fantasy death scenes. Whether in mainstream movies, TV shows, or independent fetish videos, it doesn’t matter.  If it’s well-produced, I’m interested.

My fetish dates back to my youth. Thanks to relatively liberal parents and a neighborhood friend’s Mom, I got to see a lot of Horror movies by the time I was 15, starting with The Exorcist at age 10.  By age 15, I was getting bored with their formulaic storylines, particularly Slasher flicks.  They just weren’t scary anymore, so I started watching them just to see how many different ways filmmakers could kill off a bunch of stupid coeds. In other words, like most Horror fans today, I started rooting for the villains.  Over time, I developed a strong preference for asphyxiation.  Having often held my own breath to the point of nearly passing out to cure hiccups, I can’t imagine a scarier way to die, so I love watching other people pretend to be asphyxiated to death.

In 1994, I joined the World Wide Web shortly after it went public.  Three years later, I discovered a website called Necrobabes and learned that I’m not the only one who gets off on watching people play dead.  I’ve been a highly active member of the community ever since and collected lots videos, photos, and various types of artwork.  Cinemasphyxia.com is my way of giving back to the community.  I also create digital art in 3D, maintain a gallery at DeviantArt, and run a message board for digital artists called Visions of Darkness.

A NOTE ABOUT HANGINGS

I love a good hanging but grew tired of traditional gallows, nooses, and drop-hangings in general, several years ago. I think they are entirely too cliche. Unfortunately for me, they’re also still annoyingly synonymous with hangings among most other fetishists and fetish video producers.  Consequently, I no longer buy fetish videos featuring those types of hangings.

I live for environmental lift-up hangings now. They’re the only kind I really truly enjoy anymore because they offer so many different creative possibilities for the type of setting, circumstance, and ligature. They also leave characters to struggle more freely because their hands aren’t bound in any way, and I love seeing them claw at a ligature that’s too thin to grip. The characters in my hanging fantasies are always taken by surprise as they are lassoed by an unseen killer lurking above and then hoisted up off the ground.

I’m telling you this because I want you to know that lift-up hangings from mainstream sources are the only kind you will ever see featured here.  I have no interest in any others.

SYSTEM SPECS

My workstation is a home-built 3.5 GHz Core i7-4770K running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit with 32 GB of RAM and dual GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards.

MY WORKFLOW

I use MovAVI to record scenes from streaming video.  Then, I load the recording into Corel Video Studio Ultimate to remove any irrelevant scenes and splice the remaining footage together using a “Cross Fade” effect to create a smooth transition between cuts.  Once that’s done, I export the edited footage to a 1920 x 1080 HD WMV.  After exporting, I grab a screenshot from the finished video.  Finally, I upload the WMV and create a WordPress page for the scene.

SITE AUTHORING

Cinemasphyxia.com is powered by WordPress, an open-source blogging tool and content management system.  My goal in designing the site was to build one that looks professional, is well-organized, and easy to navigate.  WordPress was ideal for achieving that goal with software that is widely used and frequently updated.  If you encounter any problems viewing pages or downloading clips, please contact me.
