Completely Restored & Color-Corrected, scene by scene. Young, Gorgeous NOW-GOLDEN(!) Thai Twinks, in 4 Bareback scenes, including a 3-way sandwich!
Each scene is memorable, in it's own way... and I’ve spent enough time with this film, to be able to write about it, with some clarity and insight.
The opening scenes are priceless, showing the cast playing together, having fun, bonding, really, playing basketball (poorly but with spirit!), in a Thai public park, shirtless, looking so slim, yet fit and buff! This is interspersed with short modeling clips, introducing all of the cast members, one by one. Amazingly, we get to see camera shots, from way above the basket! The boys take a group piss together(!), then run off together, to get into action and get this move started…
The first (real) scene features “Bess Lee” and “Allan York” in a beautiful seduction scene in the shower, followed by a LONG fuck scene, notable for its tenderness, gentleness, and genuine affection. Tell me, if you don't think Bess qualifies as the most gentle, sweet, and affectionate Thai top you could ever wish for in your wildest fantasies... whew! Allan is ONE LUCKY bottom.
The second scene is shot in this amazing "wilderness theme" hotel room (I'm guessing), with two gorgeous Thai guys, “Vic Shores” and “Lawrence Rose”. It’s memorable in as we’re able to watch Vic be our fantasy dream-top and dream-fuck... and witness Lawrence being a bottom who has a little bit of a trouble keeping a hard-on(!) So it also becomes memorable in the degree of patience Vic shows in doing ANYTHING and everything to help Lawrence finally cum, afterwards. Kudos, Vic!
The third scene could be considered the main scene; after all, this movie IS called "Golden Trio"! Starring BPD veteran models "Pierce Tracey", "Mitch Chang" and "Shawn Wang", it's a good 43 minutes long. It starts off with Pierce and Mitch getting close and personal, standing, kissing, undressing, and getting into playing with each others cocks... This progresses to the bed for some serious sex for awhile, and only then are they joined by the third member of our Golden Trio, Shawn Wang, who adds the necessary chemistry to get an endless fuck, fuck, fuck scene going, which leads into that so-called "patented 3-way sandwich fuck" described on the box liner notes. At the end, Mitch cums, explosively, while being kissed by Pierce... WOW! A delightful fantasy fuck-fest, as only Birlynn Young can produce.
The fourth and final scene, is a gift, really, a BONUS, courtesy of Birlynn Young. In fact, he flashes up a "See you soon!" message, over a modeling pose by Pierce Tracy... But we're being played with here... The gift is an entire scene, billed as a "Guest Appearance" by "Angus Steer"(?) and "Hammer Stevenson". It's probably never-before-seen footage, shot in the old-fashion style that Birlynn Young USED TO use a decade ago, where his models would all start off wearing these "signature" cute, tight, red and blue shirts... Angus slowly performs a solo strip-tease, moving fluidly and seductively (Thai Go-Go-Boy Style), eventually being joined by energetic Thai top Hammer, who proceeds to... well, hammer him senseless, to his complete delight, as well as ours. What a wonderful gift!
Thank you, Birlynn, for this Thai Boy Masterpiece.

---The Good and Bad, The Upside and Downside, Creative Genius and WTF Happened??? ---
I'd always admired this most recent series of Thai Bareback videos Birlynn Young created. In sharp contrast to his earlier productions, he clearly revamped and upgraded the quality of his productions, improving EVERYTHING; the sets, the models, the equipment, the photography, the camerawork, the lighting, and the post-production editing.
He also displayed occasional creative brilliance, like in the opening scenes. For example, in "Golden Trio", the boys joining up to play shirtless basketball together, (hey, it's HOT in Thailand!)... then taking a piss-break together! I liked it(!) and I thought it was clever and unique, featuring a relaxed look at the boys, just being boys, Thai boys, playing together, goofing on each other... it was priceless, IMHO. And it "humanized" the boys, instead of treating them simply as pieces of meat.
Birlynn has exhibited an excellent taste in choosing drop-dead gorgeous Thai Boy models, clearly spending time training them to become seasoned performers, and pairing up compatible boys.
AND his filming is often brilliant, using innovative photographic techniques (such as a camera that can spin 180 degrees in a second then zoom in to catch the action! -how does he DO that?), along with creative editing techniques, such as variable motion/speed control. And not to forget mentioning the abundant HOT, free-form bareback sex, with the boys clearly comfortable and relaxed with each other (and the crew), such that the boys genuinely seem to really enjoy having hot passionate sex together; and it shows.
But on the downside, (sorry, just being real, here, there’s a huge downside:) was frequently poor or irregular lighting, and the use of a SINGLE CAMERA, which often didn't even zoom in to catch the cum scene! (WTF?). But even worse... frankly, a DISMAL absence of... well, I was going to say "color correction", but its worse than that, it's like they didn't even bother to calibrate the video tape machines with color bars! WHY go to all the intense work to create masterpiece source video material, and completely drop the ball at the very final end and release a product almost absent of color, with a green tinge? It's so puzzling, and I can’t imagine the reason for this. I really can’t! I’d really like to know, because to me, it's simply incomprehensible. I mean, it’s like working for months on your master’s thesis, then handing it in, as loose sheets, in a brown paper bag! WTF happened?
Anyway, the result of this mysterious "dropping-the-ball", was a final product that had EVERY SCENE looking different from each other, OFTEN looking dark and dismal, VERY washed out, and often with a greenish tinge to EVERYTHING, including the boys. I don't know about you, but my brain's "Fantasy Center" seems to have some real difficulty getting me "involved" in a scene with grayish-green-skinned pale Thai Boys!
Take a look at the six screen captures, showing the before and after video, if you doubt my word.
To my surprise, through scene-by-scene color correction, I was able to repair ALL of those issues. The "Golden" boys are finally truly GOLDEN, and "Fantasy Central (Thai boy division)" is once again open for business. I think you'll be amazed at results.
I WISH I could say I was able to work with the original DVD as source video, but instead, I worked with what was available to me: an excellent MP4 source instead... so the results are accordingly GREAT Quality, just shy of High Quality.
If anyone has the original DVDs of ANY of these series of recent (past 6 years) BPD DVDs... and if you're willing to upload them here (or get a copy to me, somehow, by arrangement)... I promise, here and now, to take the time to color correct each and every one of them, scene by scene, and offer them back up here, in High Quality Xvid format.
I spent many hours working with this movie, breaking this movie into 19 scenes, each of which needed different levels of color correction to fix BPD's problematic washed out lackluster greenish tinged color. (Check out the 6 screen-capture photos!)
I was able to color balance every scene, then boost the chroma and intensity, where needed, to make "Golden Trio" the beautiful movie it deserved to be. Indeed, the boys are now "Golden", in more ways than one. This is one memorable Thai fantasy flick.
The third main scene (with the 3-way) was a bit problematic, with irregular lighting from shot to shot, but I tried for the best compromise, with the focus on trying to always make the boys look great. I even went back later, and tried to correct this particular scene (and a number of other scenes) again and AGAIN, starting from scratch, numerous times, until I was satisfied.
The original MP4 file was a non-standard Horizontal size, and still interlaced. I corrected this, while decompressing the file. I then used a method of color balancing and color correcting, while encoding directly to Xvid, in a single-encoding process, converting to progressive scan, with 2 pass encoding to detect motion, optimizing the video bit rate to a variable bit rate for the highest possible resolution, plus including MP3 audio. In order to be able to join these scenes together without additional encoding, I was forced to use fixed bit-rate MP3 audio data, resulting in a slightly larger file than VPR would have created.
I think the results are astounding, and I hope you enjoy this restored “Golden Trio” as much as I do!
Naturally, if you appreciate my work, Say "Thanks" and leave a comment, if you'd like! ;)

Box Liner Notes: (with the most blatant grammatical errors corrected)
“Young and tender... almost too young, certainly not innocent!! These four excusive stories prove it! These boys have nothing to hide; the camera sees everything!! Full insertion!! Cock hungry mouths explore nipples and tits(?), double comers(?) and our special patented(?) 3-way "Fucking Sandwich" are included in this condomless instant classic!! Our 3-way design grabs you and pulls you into the scene to come with unstoppable action.”
(I think they meant to say 3-dimensional camera work, like when the camera spins 180 degrees, and zooms in tight, which IS pretty cool!
And how, exactly, do you "patent" a "3-way fucking sandwich"???
