Here's a short BTS clip of me filming Alexis Texas for my upcoming production SEX DOLLS. The final show will be released in November.

We filmed this sequence in a Roman villa filled with an amazing collection of modern art. Everywhere you turned, there was another world class visual treat. So the addition of a naked Dahlia Grey, Kelly Havel, Isabella Camille and Pamela Petracova was truly the icing on the cake!
My nude assistant on this shoot was Regina Hall, who served me expresso each morning. It's interesting that certain Hollywood types are getting in trouble for this kind of thing. The trick is to be very up-front with the person you're considering for 'nude assisting'. That way everyone can relax and have a good, consensual time. Regina was a big help to me, both in front of and behind the cameras. You can see her perform in SECRET PARIS and AROUSED.
This clip was filmed in the French countryside, outside Paris. I shot in two chateaus for my film EXHIBITIONISTS. This scene is running in the members area of AndrewBlake.com, and as a VOD in AndrewBlakeVOD.com.
Incidentally, these two houses were shot by fashion photographer Ellen Von Unworth for her book 'Revenge' several weeks earlier. We shared the same Location Manager as well as fetish subject matter.
This was Justine and Sierra's first trip to Europe, so they were really excited about the shooting. What you see here is Justine with Czech model Kyla Cole. By the time we finished filming it was time for lunch. Not letting a golden opportunity vanish, I asked Justine and Kyla to sit down and eat our elegant country meal just the way they were. Happily they agreed - to the amusement of my group of make-up artists, models and stylists. I really enjoy it when the 'fantasy scene' overlaps into 'reality. Of course this scenario can work in reverse as well. Hope you enjoy their 'golden globes' as much as I did!
For all of you big breast fans out there, here is Monica Mendez! She was young, fresh and nubile at 22 when I shot this of her and Adriana Sage in a retro minimalist home situated under the Hollywood sign. This scene begins showing on 2/10/10.
BTW I'm interviewing a young model today with exceptional 32d tits, so I might have a clip from that casting session tomorrow. Of course I'll be interviewing her in the nude (her not me)! Next week I'm starting production on a new film (no title yet), so keep returning here for clips and BTS info.
If you haven't become a member of AndrewBlake.com yet, here's a screenshot of the Members Area layout. As you can see, the sequence (Leg Fantasy) is presented with a 'banner' photo and below are clickable thumbnails. Below that is the streaming player, which can be resized to your preference. The layout is clean and minimal, drawing the attention to the clip's content.
It took some time to develop this concept, but I think it's quite a unique way to display the films. And since I'm doing all of this from my studio, I have the ability to be spontaneous with the viewers and don't have to go through middle men to interpret what I want! There is a similar layout in the VOD Theater. So please check it out!
Here is an example of gurilla filmmaking. About 4am in our hotel off the Place Vendome in Paris, Regina had her make-up and hair done. Then at 6am my driver picked us up drove around Paris to shoot Regina in various states of undress. The short clip you see here was shot on the Plaza overlooking the Eiffel Tower. Usually this spot is filled with tourists. We jumped out of the car and started to shoot away. Regina knew exactly what I was looking for in terms of nudity. This type of shooting always gets the adreneline flowing! Ran back to the car and drove around to several other spots that you'll see in this scene from SECRET PARIS.
Regina was so into showing herself off that when we got back to the hotel, she stripped out of the wardrobe elements then walked back to her room, wearing nothing but heels and Chanel No 5! That image has stuck in my mind for many years. I ordered some Room Service and enjoyed breakfast with Regina lounging about in the nude.
Another trip to the French Countryside with the beautiful submissive zdenka, from my film SECRET PARIS. I was very pleased with the way this movie turned out.
For those of you who made comments and want some technical info about me - here it is.
This movie, SECRET PARIS, and many others were shot using my Bolex Super 16 camera. Having shot a number of films in France and Italy, I had the lab and post facility lined up. After the film was developed, I had it shipped to Los Angeles. With this movie and those prior to 2001, the film was transferred to NTSC Digital Betacam, and after 2001 had the film transferred to HDCAM-SR 1920x1080 HD. That is why I've presented this clip (and others) in NTSC Letterbox format.
After the Telecine I edited SECRET PARIS on an Avid system. This was just before Final Cut Pro rose in prominance. Avid is a more expensive and complicated system, most suited to Post Production houses. So shortly after this I switched over to FCP.
My editing technique is to arrange the footage, pretty much like I shot it, into a surrealistic montage of what went on in the scene. The girls that I hire are very skilled in displaying themselves in front of the camera, so all I need to do is present a senario and let them take it from there. Of course I directed the wardrobe and positions, but I left it up to the girls to fill in my fantasy. There are really no other tricks to what I do. It's quite minimalist. Locations, wardrobe and the girls are the main ingredients.
My advice to young filmmakers who want to shoot erotic films - find a girl that inspires you, then film her in your most personal fantasy! Regina Hall and zedenka were my main obsessions here.
I still film today with the Bolex wind-up camera, so that hasn't changed. What has changed is the entire post procedure. I'll elaborate on this soon. . .
Introducing 19 year old Amia Miley.
This clip was shot by my Nude Assistant while I filmed Amia for the first time in my studio yesterday. I think she has great potential! Amia has only been modeling for a short time, and has never been filmed (shot on motion picture film), so this was a unique experience for her.
I dressed her in shorts, tank-top and silver studded heels as you can see, then gave her an industrial strength crystal dildo. Then we ripped the clothes to shreds for a version of body revealing couture!
I was fooling around with a model who came over to see me yesterday. She had really nice breasts and arrived with them practically falling out of her t-shirt. So I whipped out my little video camera and shot them! I’ll be shooting her (them) next week for a new film. Stay tuned…
This is the first time I had the pleasure to film Adriana Sage. It's a clip from CENTERFOLD which premiers 2/8/10 in the Members Area and VOD Theatre of AndrewBlake.com. It's on the B side of SECRET PARIS, shot in 2000.
You could consider this a screen test that Adriana passed with flying colors. On this shoot I also paired her with the very young Monica Mendez. Their skill as strippers certainly added to the sexy ambience. I like working with strippers because they know how to move and display themselves naked in front of a crowd. Both girls made regular appearances in my films, including several trips to Paris.
Here you will see Adriana and Monica at their 'freshest' youthful beauty!
What happens when you have some gold rope, an expert bondage rigger and one willing and submissive model? You tie her up and set Adriana Sage in action over her, and. . .
One aspect of this 21 minute film REAR VIEW I've just put up in the Members Area and VOD site is the lovely dark hair at the end of Dahlia's back. You will see it come in and out of the light quite nicely. (You must be a Member to see this or watch the VOD - sorry but we've got to pay the bills.)
I first noticed her back hair several years into filming her. Now I know this isn't for everyone, but let me explain.
We were together in Miami Beach (with Taylor St Claire from my previous post) for a Penthouse Video shoot. Dahlia's Penthouse Pet name was Jami Dion. She was walking around the hotel and swimming pool area practically naked in a thong bikini!
Guess what? I noticed her relaxing on a pool lounge, topless as Penthouse Pets are prone to do, oiled up and suntanning. At closer inspection I saw that little patch of back hair.
So here it is in close-up! Perhaps you never would have noticed it like I did, but that's my job ! More of my Miami Beach photos of Dahlia Grey (Jami Dion) in the Members Section of AndrewBlake.com
