DCypher posts: I had another adult feature release from Club Jenna Playboy this week. For those of you paying attention that’s like a new feature coming out about every two weeks since I went non-exclusive with Club Jenna.
Originally this movie was called LOOKING BACK NOW but it got changed along the way to ROXY JEZEL: SHAGAHOLIC. When you don’t own your work this can happen. The master’s tools will never dismantle the master’s house said poet Audre Lord. It’s all for the best I suppose.
The synopsis tells us that ROXY JEZEL: SHAGAHOLIC is a disturbing and compelling introspective “trip” examining the emotionally complex inner lives of five post-adolescent wannabes, chasing fame and stardom in the underbelly of Hollywood.
Pretty fancy words, I know. I wrote ’em. But what do they mean? Right off the bat you’ve got to know that this is prolly gonna be a largely character driven story, which means lots of dialogue, sometimes circuitously executed.
The synopsis goes on to explain that Roxy came to tinsel town on a plane from the East End of London with dreams of becoming a leading lady, but never imagined she’d be the star attraction at a strip club instead. Her BF, Jonathon, practiced playing guitar until his fingers bled. All of his friends in Ohio were sure he’d be a Metal God one day. Not a small-time pot dealer dating a stripper. Emily, a simple girl with big dreams, little did she know her wishes would come true. Tanya always knew she was different, but never dreamed she’d fall in love with a woman. She came to Los Angeles to escape an abusive husband, and traded one dead end life in Missouri for another in Paradise.
In addition to Roxy it stars Celeste Star, a regular in my titles, Holly Stevens, April Blossoms, and a bunch of big studs (SHR Nadjk).
Looking back now, they all would have done something different, the box concludes. Looking back now I would have made different choices as well, regarding my career in adult. With nearly 25 features movies written and directed in just over a two-year span I would have prepared for the eventuality that the dynamics of this industry would change so fast and sweep us along with them. I’ve learned a lot about contracts after living through two of them, first Metro, then Club Jenna. I would have asked for even more than I was given, which was ample. I would have asked to own my own product.
That’s the only way to get full creative control. That’s the best way to ensure that what you dream is made how you imagined with the love and care and respect it deserves. Plus you don’t end up hunting for new work trying to figure out how to get the word out that you’re off contract. Everything happens for a reason. I believe that.
I take comfort in the Tao for only the Tao endures.
Tao Te Ching – Lao Tzu – chapter 78 : Under heaven nothing is more soft and yielding than water.Yet for attacking the solid and strong, nothing is better; It has no equal.
The weak can overcome the strong; The supple can overcome the stiff.
