Pirates Premieres in Hollyweird

by Re Pete

Yar!

On a recent Monday evening, all the excessively pretty people poured into Hollywood's storied Egyptian Theater for a much-anticipated premiere. The movie, Pirates, shot entirely in high-definition by easygoing wunderkind and techno-sexual adventurer Joone, already had a lot of industry people talking. After all, it starred some of the sexiest women on Earth - including Jesse Jane, Janine Lindemulder, Carmen Luvana, Teagan Presley and Jenaveve Jolie. And it had been heralded as one of the biggest (read: most expensive) adult productions yet made (though opinions on this vary).

That's right - the Egyptian was the site for a XXX movie premiere, the likes of which haven't been seen since the bowchickabowchicka bygone days of the seventies. Replace the oversaturated blue of those grimy times with new-millennium high-def depth, and you've got porno chic with bigger production values (not to mention breasts), red carpets, puffy pirate shirts, scabbards, and the crisp, clean smell of money. Strange days, even for an old, permanently warped industry town like Hollywood.

Does this mean that the mainstreaming of adult entertainment has taken yet another step forward, along with Porn Queen Jenna Jameson's New York Times-bestselling memoir "How to Make Love Like a Porn Star: A Cautionary Tale" and the numerous Hollywood acting credits for adult actors like Gina Lynn and Nina Hartley, not to mention the black-inked porn profit centers for big ole' American corporations like News Corp., Time Warner, and Paris "The Heiress" Hilton's namesake hotel chain (not to mention her own "underground-style" porno, 1 Night in Paris)? (Well, not quite: as part of the unofficial "War on Porn," the current Presidential administration has enlisted the help of the FBI, whose Washington Field Office just began recruiting for a new anti-obscenity squad. As if they don't have enough to do right now.)

But never mind about that. I recently talked with Joone about Pirates, which will almost certainly set sales records for Digital Playground - the entertainment company that produced the movie in association with longtime adult fixture Adam and Eve - as well as across the entire industry. Here are some excerpts from the interview, condensed for easy reading.

How did the premiere at the Egyptian go?

It was phenomenal. A great turnout, over 600 people. The place was packed.

The costumes and set design looks fantastic. What inspired you to make the movie and to really go for broke on Pirates?

We shot a little side movie during the filming of Island Fever 3 in Tahiti and Bora Bora with Evan Stone as a pirate. It was so much fun, and we thought we had something, so we decided to do a full-length feature.

Was it shot on location?

We shot in Florida and Los Angeles. We did all the ship scenes in Florida.

You're known for using cutting-edge digital technology in your films. Did you use any new gadgets for Pirates?

This time around we went with two high-definition cameras instead of one. I really wanted to capture the best possible performance, which two cameras enabled us to do.

When it came to shooting, did you have a favorite performer?

I actually wrote the screenplay with the actors in mind. Evan Stone, Jesse Jane, Tommy Gunn, they all had distinct roles. Evan plays the wild-eyed comic pirate, who balances nicely with Tommy, who plays a mean, savage pirate.

Considering where we are now, with Pirates receiving a premiere at the Egyptian, is adult entertainment mainstream?

Well, I look at Digital Playground as an entertainment company. We create entertainment for adults, and we include subject matter that traditional Hollywood won't touch. But it appeals to a lot of people, from all over the world. For Pirates, the sex isn't secondary -- it's all motivated by the story. The sex scenes aren't separate from the story.

Where is adult entertainment headed? It seems like interactive is one possible frontier. What's next?

I'm interested in exploiting technology through sexuality. As for what's next, I'm excited about mobile, and the new HD players coming out next year. It will open up a lot of new ways for people to enjoy adult-oriented entertainment.

Would you ever consider doing a comedy? A full-fledged, scripted, hardcore comedy?

Pirates is a comedy, and an action-adventure. It's got it all. At the premiere, everyone laughed in all the right places.

Whoops: Adored by Mormons?

Corey Eubanks of Wolfe Releasing pointed out this amusing little tidbit straight outta Utah:

A family-friendly Mormon DVD called Sons of Provo (from Halestorm Entertainment) was accidentally sent out from the replicator with the Wolfe title Adored: Diary of a Porn Star on it, much to the surprise of many Mormon families. A Wolfe press release emphasized "the mistake was made by the third-party company contracted to do the DVD replication for both films. Neither Wolfe (the distributor of Adored) nor Halestorm Entertainment (the distributor of Sons of Provo) was aware of the mistake until customers began to complain about the mix-up." Also important to note is that the film in question is not pornographic, although it does contain sexual situations and centers around a gay porn star.

[The entire article on Deseret News (October 4, 2005 edition).]

We don't know about you, but we're actually a little more afraid of (but also amused by) a movie about a band called Everclean with lyrics like this: "Everclean, cleaner than Listerine/Mellower than Dramamine/Not even close to obscene."

BlueCine Shorts

Some interesting recent articles caught our eyes, including this one in the 9/7 San Francisco Chronicle:

"SuicideGirls just want to have fun. And celebrate their individuality":

"Launched four years ago as a meeting place for punk "girls" in their 20s and 30s with tattoos and piercings, SuicideGirls.com has become a large feminist subculture meant to counter the big-boobs-no-brain standard of beauty -- all by posting nude Goth girls online. Some join for the sex between members, others for the online journals. Almost all SuicideGirls define the site's purpose differently -- as an activist platform, a porn site, a networking space -- agreeing only that it has huge party potential. Each model -- there are now 752, with a new one added daily -- adopts the last name "Suicide" as a member of the site's extended alterna-fem family."

And from The New York Press:

POORN: The crusty underbelly of the fetish world.

Also of note:

An earlier San Francisco Chronicle piece: "Hot, steamy and now downloadable: Aural sex shimmies into the podcast as 'podnography' trend takes off"

And from way back when, this New York Times piece on Burning Angel and its proprietor Joanna Angel: "Wearing Nothing but Attitude"
