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 really 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. For more information, check out the website, Smash Pictures
Follow-up to niche hit already surpassing sales of original release
CHATSWORTH, Calif. - Smash Pictures has another hit on its hands with Secretary’s Day 2, directed by Kevin Moore.
Secretary’s Day 2 manages to surpass the award-winning original thanks to a top-notch cast, a killer box cover featuring Jenna Haze and the fetishistic eye of director Moore. The movie is already drawing rave reviews and has shot to #2 on the charts at Gamelink.com.
“I think it’s the best thing I’ve personally shot, ” Moore told AVN. “It’s a long movie, over three hours. There’s a lot going on in all the scenes, and I think the performers themselves really shined.”
Moore expertly cast the movie with some of the hottest girls in the business, including Haze, Rebeca Linares, Rachel Starr, Tori Black, Jenny Hendrix and Dakoda Brookes.
“I was looking for the A-list,” Moore said. “Jenna Haze is, if not the best, then one of the best in the business. I think Rachel Starr could be destined to be just as big as any of the girls. Another girl who is pretty new is Dakoda Brookes who works with Mark Wood. She has an incredible butt and totally has the right attitude the entire movie.” As with previous Smash releases, the DVD offers the viewer options to watch Secretary’s Day 2 with or without the setups.
“There is a little story,” Moore explained. “I play the boss of these different temp secretaries, and it’s me dealing with all their shenanigans. I like a little psychology in there to create a reason why people are fucking around. I like there to be a reason. Or you can watch it like a wall-to-wall movie by changing a setting on the DVD, and take out the story.”
Moore has directed over 30 movies since launching his directorial career five years ago. His work for Smash includes Clothes Freaks, Mother Lode and forthcoming installments of Killer Grip and Down Your Throat. He also directs for Hustler, Pulse Pictures, Doghouse Digital, Hellhouse Media and Evil Angel, working closely with John Leslie and Joey Silvera on their productions.
Among the standout scenes in Secretary’s Day 2 are Haze’s scene with Moore and Johnny Sins, in which the boss catches her screwing on the job and demands a blowjob. A threesome with Linares, Hendrix and porn icon Tom Byron features a terrific catfight sequence as a prelude to the scorching sex.
“That was my first chance to shoot Tommy on my own,” said Moore. “You don’t have to direct Tommy, you just kick back. He knows way more than me. Joey [Silvera] and John [Leslie] taught me about not about over-directing. It’s like shooting a documentary, shooting like, nature, you just sit back. If you over-direct it ruins the chemistry. It’s just about finding that great shot and holding it and letting the guy at home just get off to it.”
According to Jeff Dillon of Gamelink.com, Secretary’s Day 2 has proven to be a hot item. The popular site began offering the movie on VOD in advance of its DVD release and pre-orders immediately took off.

Kevin Moore’s handjob movie set for April release
CHATSWORTH, Calif. - Director Kevin Moore has wrapped Killer Grip 4 for Smash Pictures. The movie showcases the mind-boggling manual dexterity of 12 girls, including real-life identical twins Lindsay and Lacey Love.
Formerly under contract with Vivid Entertainment, the Love twins are now going the gonzo route. Killer Grip offers a prime example of the sisters’ dirty tricks.
“The Love Twins are truly unique, and the set-up for their vignette for was a blast,” said Stuart Wall of Smash. “It starts out with them wearing the same outfits; one of them is stroking the guy and steps out to get something, yet when she returns it’s the other sister. The guy has no clue. Eventually, as a mind -fuck, out of the corner of his eye he gets a glimpse of the other sister and he has to do a double-take. Finally, she joins in and both girls stroke him off together to a massive facial climax.”

CHATSWORTH, Calif. - 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 AVN. “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 doesn�t 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.”

Cheating Housewives - Smash Pictures
CHATSWORTH, Calif. Smash Pictures’ “Secretaries Day” and “Cheating Housewives 1,” distributed exclusively in the U.K. by Nice N Naughty Wholesale, have been nominated for Best Overseas Film by the 2007 UK Adult Film and TV Awards.
Nice N Naughty owner Simon Prescott told XBIZ that the second annual awards are more sought after than ever before and have become a well-respected measure of success in the U.K. adult industry.
“This is ongoing awareness and promotion of the Smash Pictures label in the U.K.,” Prescott said.
Prescott said that before an adult film can be sold in the U.K., it must be classified by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC). In order for it to be sold in department stores and other non-sex shops around the country, the film must be available in a softer cut rated “18.” The hardcore version of each film must be rated “R18″ before it can be sold in licensed sex shops.
Prescott said that both the “18″ and “R18″ versions of both Smash titles were accepted by the BBFC and nominated for awards.
Smash Vice President Stuart Wall told XBIZ that he is very pleased with the company’s exclusive distribution partnership
CHATSWORTH, Calif. - Smash Pictures’ niche hit Secretary’s Day is a #1 hit in England according to the online chart for British VOD site Strictly Broadband.
“As the UK’s largest VOD site, our audience is largely British, and overall, British titles tend to outsell American ones,” Strictly Broadband rep Jerry told AVN. “However, we recently published Secretary’s Day from Smash, and it’s been sitting in our #1 slot for over a week now. This is a great title for sure, but we’re still not quite sure why it’s outselling everything else on our site! Regardless, this is great news for Smash, and we’ll be publishing more of their new titles to Strictly Broadband as they arrive.”
Smash Pictures sales VP Stuart Wall told AVN that he is thrilled with the news, noting that he takes a very careful approach to selling Smash titles on VOD.
“I’m always reluctant to sign VOD deals outside of the US,” said Wall. “It’s so hard to track, it turns into a trust issue. This is why I’ve narrowed our VOD deals down to just the top 6 based in the US. I’ve been approached with VOD deals from as far away as Sweden and Asia, and I’ve declined them all. Strictly Broadband is our only rep for all of Europe for VOD.”
Secretary’s Day caters to the office-sex fetish with a top-notch cast led by Lindsay Meadows.
Smash has come out strong this year with a catalog of specialized lines offering gonzo sex with a niche-oriented twist. The company’s well-cast MILF line Cheating Housewives nabbed an AVN Award in January,and Wall expects the success to continue with a new spinoff series, The Mother Lode.
Wall also revealed to AVN that a well-known porn director will be coming on board to shoot the next Cheating Housewives in November. Expect a top-notch cast of XXX stars.
