Frank Moore For President 2008 Platforms - raw footage



Recorded June 15, 2007. This is the raw footage from the taping session.

Ah, yes! I did spend two years running for president as a write-in candidate! It is one of my most effective performances! It inspired a lot of people, forced changes in laws in several states, attracted a lot of mainstream European press coverage, and gave me a platform on which to address issues. SEE, I AM NOT JUST A HUNK!

Erotic Play (NSFW)


The video will open in a new window/tab.

This video explores what happens when people of all types and ages are given a chance to return to being a kid again. A simple game of dress-up becomes a powerful metaphor for dropping taboos, releasing creative emotion, and for dramatic change. As a result, an innocent eroticism is found ... as well as getting intimate with 60 humans.

I edited EROTIC PLAY with two remotes taped on a table before me using my head pointer. What we do when we have no money and when we are ahead of the technology! We just made videos and put them in our closet. And now the same videos are being watched by people all over the world on THE FRANK MOORE CHANNEL [even on their television]! Thank God we didn't care whether people would ever see the stuff. We just did them to do them! And now we have a shit load of content!

Episode 3 - Art of Reshaping Reality - Let Me Be Frank

Originally we had planned to do a documentary about Frank's life and work because we have so much footage and so many photographs. But we did not want to do a "normal" talking head style documentary. We realized that Frank had already written a biography of sorts in his book, "Art of a Shaman" so we decided to try to use that as the "script" for the video. We decided to see if we could get people who were important to Frank and had played a part in his life to each read a chapter of the book. After drafting the email and sending it out we were blown away at the immediate response and the project took off. We assigned chapters to readers using the random principle ... as Frank loved to do ... pulling a piece of paper with a chapter number written on it from a bag as we read a person's name.

Once we had all of the recordings of the readings and added up the time, the documentary was going to be at least 3 hours long ... and it was going to take a really long time to put together. We then had a eureka on a walk one day.... we could put each chapter out on the web as we create them ... as episodes!

Several musicians are now creating "background music" for each episode.

Way back at the beginning, when we first had the thought of even doing a documentary about Frank, we asked Vinnie Spit Santino if he would write a song for it, without any idea how we would use it ... or what we were even doing with the documentary. Vinnie wrote the amazing "Let Me Be Frank" that will be the opening song for each episode ... and the title of the series!

Frank Moore’s Vimeo account was terminated!

On Wednesday August 21, 2019, Vimeo abruptly terminated Frank's account for violating their “guidelines”. 

Frank had over 700 videos in his account that we have been uploading on a weekly basis for over eight years. His videos had over 33 million plays on Vimeo.com.

It will take us a while to get them all back up at a new place ... but they will slowly start appearing here again as we upload them to their new home!

Dancing In The Passion Cave


A performance by Frank Moore
Saturday, December 4, 2004
Wildcat Studio, Berkeley, CA

Frank Moore wrote on Monday, December 06, 2004

Well, Saturday night’s performance, Dancing In The Passion Cave at the WILDCAT STUDIO was extremely simple…I wasn’t even nude! But it was extremely powerful. The obvious dance was the naked dance between Linda and Erika explicitly expressing the intimate relationship that we are together. The question, are they making love?, was whispered quite a few times during the 3 hours of pleasure being together in a relaxed slowness. Meanwhile I was sitting/talking with Sarah who came to the performance “to find happiness.” Dr. Oblivious and Geoff jammed masterfully living music, playing off of both the dance and what was happening with Sarah and me, melting everything together. The third element of the ritual was the twin black brothers [fans of my B-TV shows] buzzing around the space in their wheelchairs…very cute!

We didn’t even have time to shut the overhead lights off before the magical trance kicked in. I just pulled Sarah from the audience and off we went! Right off the bat she said she doesn’t let ANYONE ever take photos of her…but she would let us video her at the performance. She said she doesn’t like to touch [except her dogs], didn’t have sex/make love, wears layers of clothing ALWAYS  to protect herself from the outside, to make sure she doesn’t lose her self to AN OTHER. Very quickly she and I were holding hands and rubbing NUDE ARMS together!...without her losing her self! Soon I was rubbing her padded bra [I have been running into a lot of them recently!]. By the end of the night she was banging on her bra with a drumstick [inspired by Jen Wilson’s CONGA CUNT], pounding my poems [which she read aloud] into her body! At the end of the night, she said she had found happiness. Guess that performance was a success! And what a way to end a year!
