Confirmed: The Director of Innocence of Muslims is a Schlocky Softcore Porn Director Named Alan Roberts

The anti-Islam blur that’s set off a firestorm in the Middle East was directed by a 65-year-old schlock administrator alleged Alan Roberts, we’ve confirmed. He’s the artistic eyes behind softcore porn abstract like The Happy Hooker Goes Hollywood.

An Alan Roberts is listed as administrator on the film’s casting calls and alarm bedding from the summer of 2011, aback if it was innocuously called Desert Warriors.. Castmembers and aggregation told us bygone that Roberts was brought on by producer “Sam Bacile” aka Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, and he abashed his way through a disorganized three-month shoot. This is the aforementioned Alan Roberts listed in IMDB as the administrator of a scattering of softcore porn movies and added low-budget films, according to acquaintances we batten to today.

“I am abiding it was the aforementioned Alan Roberts, as I remember him speaking about this project,” said filmmaker David A. Prior, a longtime acquaintance of Roberts, in an email. Roberts is listed as a ambassador on two of Prior’s films, 2008’s Zombie Wars and 2007’s Lost at War. “He did plan on [Innocence of Muslims],” confirmed a man who was Roberts’ business partner in a post-production ability he ran, who asked not to be named.

The backstory abaft how Roberts became director of Innocence of Muslims is still unclear, like so abounding things about the film. We’ve tried to ability Roberts, but his business accessory told us he “turned off his phone” anon afterwards protests broke out over the blur and is laying low. But he said Roberts was “non-political” and did not have any credible anti-Islam feelings. Roberts may accept been bamboozled by the film’s ambassador in much the aforementioned way as the blow of the casting and crew. They believed they were accommodating in a period section about age-old Egypt and had no idea the cine would be edited and dubbed into a section of Islamophobic propaganda..

“They redubbed it, they brought in the actors, put in new sounds, afflicted the names,” said the business partner. “And this was done later, before it was initially released. Of advance Alan had annihilation to do with it.” An extra who formed with Roberts on Innocence of Muslims agreed that he had nothing to do with the political angled of the film.

“My gut tells me he was just a has-been director who was aggravating to prove he could still be Hollywood,” she wrote in an email. Alan Roberts’ absolute name is Robert Brownell. Vice obtained abstracts assuming a being from Santa Montica alleged Robert Brownell had paid for some pre-production casework for the film that would eventually become Innocence of Muslims, and Roberts’ business partner confirmed that Robert Brownell was Alan Roberts’ absolute name.

Until the absolution of Innocence of Muslims, the 65-year-old Roberts has had an unremarkable career as a bush administrator and editor. His directing credits cover some softcore porn from the 70s and 80s like 1977’s Young Lady Chatterly, The Sexpert and The Happy Hooker Goes to Hollywood, third of the Happy Hooker trilogy. (It’s apparently no accompaniment that the cast included at atomic two porn stars, or that Innocence of Muslims contains a clear scene of Muhammed assuming articulate sex on a woman.) Roberts approved to breach into activity in 1991 with Karate Cop: “John Travis is the last honest cop in a approaching bedeviled by terroristic martial-arts gangs who action gladiator-style in arenas.”

Roberts is added able as a blur editor, with 28 alteration credits, including the 2003 Johnny Knoxville/Christina Applegate vehicle Grand Theft Parsons. In the mid-2000s, he ran a agenda post-production ability alleged Genesis Post-Production according to a columnist absolution for a documentary about Burning Man area he’s credited as producer. “At one time he edited some adequately ample films but he absolutely never got a breach to the absolutely big ones for whatever reasons,” said the business partner. “But for the plan I’ve seen, the editing he’s done, he’s in fact actual creative.” Anyone who’s apparent the awkward 14- minute bivouac for Innocence of Muslims, which he helped adapt as able-bodied as direct, ability disagree. But again awkward alteration is far from the worst thing about the film.
