Club Jenna is poised to release what it is calling the best movie it has ever produced, Jenna’s Provocateur, which is also the directorial debut of Jenna Jameson.
The feature stars six Club Jenna girls and was shot on film, another first for the Scottsdale, Ariz.-based studio.
“I think it’s pretty much the best movie ever released at Club Jenna,” said Club Jenna CEO Jay Grdina, aka director/performer Justin Sterling. “Jenna had a lot of great ideas, and coupled with a really great crew, it was unreal. All the girls watched the other girls’ scenes and they tried to outdo each other.”
Jameson directs the reigning AVN Best New Starlet, McKenzie Lee, Jesse Capelli, Ashton Moore, Sophia Rossi, Chanel St. James and former Club Jenna star Krystal Steal in the movie which employs hard gonzo-style sex with high-end feature production values.
Jameson, who is traveling out of the country and was not available for comment at press time, also appears briefly on screen in some never-before-seen footage, Grdina confirmed.
“We also did a bonus disc,” he continued. “They followed us around the whole [AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Vegas], interviewing Jenna and showing the behind-the-scenes. It’s all Jenna and it’s the making of The Provocateur, and it’s the same guys who shot our reality show, so it’s done reality-show style.”
Jameson’s concept for the movie was “a Victoria’s Secret ad, plus one,” said Grdina, who was the lead videographer and editor on the project.
“It’s just pure, raw sex, with segues of composite, beautiful imagery and foreshadowing, prior to the scenes and after the scenes. I cut it totally different than anything we’ve ever done. It’s also original scored music from Spout. The music is unbelievable. Every scene looks like a music video and the scenes are on average 20 minutes. It’s one hour, 54 minutes long.”
The action starts with Lee taking on Ben English, Scott Nails and Marco Banderas in an all-anal, six-position throwdown in which she gets d.p.’ed. Then Rossi meets Evan Stone for what Grdina called “a great pounding scene.” Then Capelli tangles with Melissa Lauren in a strap-on scene before Moore does her first boy/girl scene in five years with reigning, two-time AVN Male Performer of the Year, Manuel Ferrara.
“She squirts in it. It was a ridiculous scene,” Grdina said, noting that Club Jenna shoots two hours of sex on film which is almost unheard of due to the costs associated with that medium.
That paves the way for Steal, who was the first Club Jenna girl, to get down with Barrett Blade in what Grdina said was “the best sex scene I’ve seen Krystal do.”
“It was no holds barred. Krystal threw down,” he said.
Then McKenzie Lee returns for a tryst with St. James, which was the starlet’s first ever scene.
“She’s never shot, never even taken her clothes off for modeling,” Grdina said. “As soon as we yelled action, Chanel says, ‘Suck my fucking dirty cunt you whore.’ At one point I had to put down the camera I was laughing so hard.”
Since this was a special project for Club Jenna, it warranted special packaging, so the company spared no expense and designed six different box covers – one with each Club Jenna girl prominently featured. Each movie features more bonus materials and footage with the girl who is on the cover. For instance, fans who buy the DVD with St. James on the cover will be treated to additional photo galleries, extra masturbation sequences and more behind-the-scenes moments with her.
“Jenna also did a commentary,” Grdina added. “We also put in an insert of a collector’s book.”
The buzz about Jameson’s anticipated debut behind the camera has not been lost on distributors, according to Howard Levine, national sales manager for Club Jenna’s distributor, Vivid, which is distributed by Pulse.
“My big distributor who is normally taking 500 out the door on a Jenna title is now taking 3,000, 500 of each,” Levine said.
Jenna’s Provocateur is mastered in HD and also features original costumes designed by Jameson and wardrobe specialist September Dawn, who also heads Exotic Star Models.
“I was really proud of Jenna,” Grdina, who recently separated from Jameson but remains “best friends” with her, remarked. “This was a big undertaking for us.”
Grdina said that Jameson’s signature is all over the movie, from how the girls are styled to the intensity of each sex scene. “And Jenna was instrumental in the performer pairings,” he added. “The energy was great. Everyone was amped. The girls wanted to put 180 percent into it. This is part of history.”
The movie will be released on Sept. 28. Club Jenna, Inc., founded in 2000, was acquired by Playboy in a blockbuster deal in June.
