Bishop Wraps Smash Pictures' Blind Sex Date 4

Director Bishop has wrapped the fourth volume in Smash Pictures' reality-porn series Blind Sex Date. The movie is scheduled for March release.

Blind Sex Date 4 features five vignettes with an emphasis on amateur talent. "Family Business" star Bishop hosts the scenes, which emulate the 'Blind Date' format complete with pop-up captions and real L.A. locations including Splash Hot Tubs, Hustler Hollywood, Tempo's restaurant and La Finestra.

"It's really important for me and for the series that it really look like the dating show and hold true to that show," Bishop told. "None of the couples have ever met before; we match them up, they ride in separate cars and the only direction given might be something to the effect of asking them to talk about past relationships, or the kinkiest place they've had sex, or their worst dating nightmare. In this particular show Vol. 4, all of the guys are amateurs and only two of the girls are porn stars."

According to Bishop and Smash sales VP Stuart Wall, crew from the original 'Blind Date' series joined the porn version when the mainstream TV show went off the air.

"The two shows really look identical, except our dates go all the way" Wall told AVN. "Our first three volumes in the series were so successful that Playboy picked up the cable rights; with all the fan letters and phone calls we've been getting, we had to produce a follow-up." Bishop recruits talent for the series through flyers and classified ads. The Volume 4 casting call yielded applicants from L.A., San Diego, Las Vegas and the Bay area.

"They respond to an ad, saying they either want to try the adult industry or that they're interested in going out on a blind sex date," the director explained. "We bring them in and explain how the whole thing goes; they understand that it does not have to go to sex. There's an added incentive if it does go to sex, but they're not under any obligation. They do what they can, and we're happy to get what we get. I tried to push the guys to hold positions, years ago, but it doesn't really work. Most of these guys don't get laid; if they have any play, they'll talk the girl into it. But if all the guy knows is doggie style, I don't try to infiltrate what they do."

Wall emphasized the entertainment value of amateur talent. "The series gives viewers the chance to see real civilians getting down and dirty; the sex is really raunchy, and at the same time, it has great couples appeal."
 
 
_Director David Lord grabs the whale by the tail in his Smash Pictures debut

A thick metal gate slowly and mechanically swings open at the end of the driveway to the house where director David Lord is shooting Smash Pictures' Whale Tail 4. Inside the gate, industry vet Justin Syder welcomes me in and we shake hands. Syder is a former professional fighter and his grip is strong, his hands rough like steel pads, but he wears a warm smile on his face as he leads me to the guest house in the back where the action is happening.

Through the front door of the guest house, Lord is prepping to shoot the next scene between brunette looker Stephanie Cane and Derrick Pierce. Stephanie is in the make-up chair while Pierce lends a hand to the crew, carrying one of the lights through the kitchen to the bedroom.

"Oh my god, talent is moving lights," Lord jokes as he changes the tape in this camera. "You don't see that every day."

"It's because AVN is on set," muses DCypher, a veteran director/producer/writer with a number of top-selling titles under his belt. As is often the case in Porn Valley, the set is full of longtime friends and the atmosphere is jovial.

Whale Tail 4 is Lord's directorial debut for Smash and while the crew gets the bedroom dressed and lit, Lord — looking like a rock star in silver chains, sunglasses and soul patch on his chin — takes a moment to talk about g-strings and jeans. (For those unfamiliar with the concept of the "whale tail," it's the y-shaped part of the back of a girl's panties that often pokes through the top of low-cut jeans.)

"I've always liked the whale," Lord says. "And it's one of two things that makes me crazy — other than boobs. The first is when the top of a girl's ear peeks out of her hair. And the other is when a girl's panties come out of the top of her jeans.

"Since I don't think I'll be doing any ear movies anytime soon, I think I'll stick to the whale tail."

Volume four is a mixture of vignette and pretty girl-style set-ups, and Lord makes sure to note what is arguably the most important aspect of the title — the girls.

"We have a great cast," says Lord. "Yesterday we had Emma Cummings, Missy Stone and my new favorite - Phoenix Marie. She's a beautiful blonde with big tits and a gigantic ass."

Soon Lord is back inside shooting Stephanie Cane and Derrick Pierce through their relentless hardcore session. As the scene the continues on, Stephanie's howls echo louder and louder through the house.

Outside, petite Lexi Belle sits next to Van Damage on a wicker love seat. The two will be performing next and Van is joking about how he's going to change his name to Ramon and become porn's new Latin lover.

Lexi has been in the business for two years and she and Van have worked together once before. For this scene, she plays a sexy mechanic who comes to Van's rescue when his car breaks down.

"I help him because I know everything about cars," says Lexi, and adds, "with my g-string hanging out."

But she also notes the scenario is a bit unrealistic because, "I don't wear underwear in real life. Underwear and bras end up just being one more thing to wash. But I do like it when guys' boxers hang out of their jeans — especially the grungy boys."

"I thought you'd be into a man in an Armani suit and a fresh haircut," says Van, "a debonair, cosmopolitan man."

"Sometimes," Lexi returns.

"But now I know, you like dirty underwear and bong water," Van jokes.

Inside the house, Stephanie's howls have become a high-pitched falsetto as Pierce continues to pound away. In between Stephanie's falsettos, words like "fuck!" and "oh my god!" can be heard.

When the scene ends and the performers come out of the bedroom, the set photographer asks, "Was Mariah Carey getting fucked in there?" Stephanie, meanwhile, steps outside and pulls up her dress to show off her swollen pussy - the prize from their 1½ fuck session.

Guaranteed Smash: Secretary's Day 3 Lands Cover of TLA Raw Catalogue

Smash Pictures' top-selling adult movie series Secretary's Day has landed on the cover of the upcoming TLA Raw direct mail catalogue which will trumpet the volume 3 DVD release with a seductive photo of Nikki Rhodes gracing the cover.

TLA Video and TLA Raw are two of the largest mail-order catalogues in existence serving over 4 million consumers annually. The Philadelphia based TLA realized the mass appeal of gorgeous women wearing business attire and glasses and thought that Secretary's Day 3 would be a perfect fit for the popular sales catalogue.

"Smash Pictures is a consistently strong selling studio for TLAraw.com. It's Smash's first time on our cover and we're thrilled that it's for such a great title as Secretary's Day 3," stated Brian Sokel TLA managing director.

Starring Georgia Jones, Celeste Starr, Sarah Vandella, Nikki Rhodes, Mackenzee Pierce, Sasha Grey along with male studs Erik Everhard, Marc Wood, Johnny Sins and Prince, Secretary's Day 3 is the type of movie that those employed and those unemployed can relate to. The DVD is scheduled for a March 12th release and the TLA Raw catalogue will be mailed out on March 17th.

Smash Pictures and TLA agree that they have a strong winner on their hands with the latest dirty tales from the office. "We put a lot of effort in making this movie and staying in the niche theme with girls wearing their glasses, office business suit attire and shooting in a real office building," remarked Smash Pictures vice president Stuart Wall.

Smash Pictures Lands UK DVD Distribution Deal with Scala and Pabo/Beate Uhse

California based Smash Pictures has inked a key distribution deal with powerhouse Scala UK and the Dutch mail order catalog Pabo which is owned by the Beate Uhse chain.

The deal opens the doors to large scale UK and European distribution for the adult production company best known for their hit adult movie series Secretary's Day, WhaleTail, Cheating Housewives, & Teen Idol. The deal came after negotiations intensified at the Venus Berlin tradeshow last month in Germany .

Smash Pictures is ecstatic about the new deal and was impressed with the scope and magnitude of Scala and the Pabo/Beate Uhse operation.

"While attending the Venus Berlin show the reputation that SCALA has is top notch and while I was in the Frankfurt, Germany airport I was amazed to see one of the Beate Uhse adult stores located right in the terminal. I also visited the Beate Uhse erotic museum while in Berlin too, these guys are everywhere and this means good things for Smash Pictures," Wall stated.

Foreign distribution can pose unique problems in territories such as the United Kingdom which has specific requirements regarding the type of movies that are allowed on store shelves and each title must be reviewed and approved by the government with an R18 stamp. Once the R18 approval is given only then does a company have the right to sell DVDS.

This new agreement makes SCALA Agenturen UK Ltd the exclusive representative for new Smash Pictures titles which will be distributed to various adult stores & chains in the U.K.

"We're extending this deal to also include SCALA as our reps into the Dutch mail order catalog called PABO which is owned by Beate Uhse which will now have all of our latest Smash Pictures inventory fully stocked in their many stores," Wall remarked.

Scala's Clive Gore said, "Smash Pictures produces quality product and when we met again in Berlin and discussed the arrangement it was clear this was a win-win opportunity for both companies in distributing new titles forward."

The deal comes at a time when Smash Pictures is making increased efforts to globalize their brand. Today streets the new release for Teen Idol #6 "Black Man's Turn" starring Rico Strong, Prince, Shorty Mac, & CJ Wright. Casting for volume 6 to the award winning MILF series Cheating Housewives has just started and is slated for a January release.

Smash Pictures Featured in FyreTV's 'Maxim' Ad

Smash Pictures is featured in an ad for the FyreTV set-top box appearing in the November issue of Maxim.

"As one of the first companies to be included on the FyreTV box, we were able to stand out in their booth last year during the AVN show," said Smash. "When FyreTV approached us with this advertising offer, we brought in Jenna Haze for a special photo shoot."

The color ad shows Jenna Haze (Secretary's Day 2) beckoning readers with the FyreTV remote above a blurb for Smash Pictures.

"We're honored to have landed something like this," Wall told AVN. "It puts us in good company with the major players in the industry, and it's terrific placement for our studio."

Set to debut this fall, the FyreTV box delivers streaming video through a broadband connection. The system allows viewers to search for specific stars, studios, scene types, physical attributes, fetishes, and other criteria.

Selecting a performer will bring up photos and profiles of the stars to help anyone confused about which "Jenna" or "Naomi" they're looking for. The user can filter search results according to preference by programming the box not to show, for example, BBW content.

Among the other studios featured on FyreTV are JM Productions, Wicked Pictures, Evil Angel, Adam & Eve, Teravision, Zero Tolerance, Pink Visual, Cherry Boxxx, Mayhem, DVSX and VCX. FyreTV is also developing original content for the box.

Smash Pictures produces a variety of top-selling lines including Cheating Housewives, Whale Tail, Teen Idol, and many more.

First there was American Idol. Then came Teen Idol.

With tongue planted firmly in its triple X cheek, Smash Pictures continues its hit series with volume number 6, Black Man's Turn, as five teenage girls are paired up with a high profile black performer in a parody of the hit TV series. Each scene begins as a female contestant is introduced and praised for her skills in the various categories leading her to today's final challenge. It's at that point that the satiric tongue is replaced with another part of the anatomy, and the hard core content that Smash is known for begins.

"We took a different approach this time out," said Sir Real, aka Stuart Wall, Smash's Head of Production and co-director of the release, "and set this up as a takeoff on the popular show. Every girl is 18 or 19 years old, and we've paired them with the biggest names in the business, Rico Strong, Mr. Marcus, Prince, LT, and CJ Wright."

The female cast is a mix of white, Latin and Asian, all fresh-faced newcomers who turn in solid professional performances. The stand-out scene is the Mimi Allen-Rico Strong smackdown. Mimi, a cute, slender Latina , was barely able to control herself during the shoot. "Rico worked me hard," she said after a shower. "I was so excited, my legs were trembling. That's never happened to me. I never had an orgasm that strong. That's never happened either. My fans are going to love it!"

Shot in High Definition, the release also features the directorial debut of Billy Springfield. "Billy and I alternate directing scenes," continued Wall. "Billy is great to work with because he comes from a mainstream news background and has lots of technical expertise."

Shooting wraps this week, and is slated for October release.

Smash Pictures signs director David Lord

Smash Pictures: Lord Have Mercy

Smash Pictures has announced the signing of David Lord to the company's roster of directors.

The non-exclusive deal calls for Lord to deliver one movie each month for Smash.

"I've been watching David Lord's work and feel he has a sense for what we're after," said Smash sales VP Stuart Wall. "David is cutting edge and keeps an open mind that will fit in great for our niche projects. Lord has a great crew to go along with that."

One of Lord's tasks at Smash will be taking over the company's Whale Tail series. Wall explained, "The series takes the voyeuristic approach in catching a peep at a sexy girl's G-String poking beneath her low rise jeans or hip-huggers, then reveals what a turn on it is to catch this in action taking it all the way."

Lord is currently preparing to shoot the fourth volume of Whale Tail.

"I was excited to hear I was going to be doing the line," David told. "It's one of their bigger lines and I was honored that they gave it to me. I have two things that get to me and one of them is the way those panties stick out of girls' jeans. Gets me every time."

Wall also indicated that Smash will also be releasing titles directed by Francesca Le, but gave no specifics as to what those projects might be.
