Lucas Entertainment announced in a press release this week that veteran gay XXX journalist and reviewer Vincent Lambert directed his first scene for the company's Encounters series on March 24.
The Encounters series serves as a vehicle for new directors. “Encounters invites fresh ideas and perspectives,” said Heather Reznor, Public Relations for Lucas Entertainment. “Every scene has a modern, stylish look, and the concept allows the director freedom to inject his unique voice.”
Lambert, who has covered the porn industry for ten years, said, “It’s just a natural progression of what I have done and what I am interested in doing. It was very challenging to write and direct my first scene, but after watching and reviewing so many movies, I have a definite perspective on what I like and don’t like.”
Lambert's byline has appeared in GAYVN, Unzipped, Latin Inches, Black Inches, All Man, Manshots, and HX magazines.
“Vincent is a natural choice,” said Michael Lucas, President of Lucas Entertainment. “The idea of him directing for us makes sense since he has been working in the industry for so long. He has seen hundreds of adult films and has spent time on my sets and knows my style. I have complete faith in him.”
Lambert’s directorial debut in Encounters: The Point of No Return is titled “Sex Party for Two.” It stars new Lucas exclusive Tony RyderandJack MacCarthy. Superstar Chad Hunt also makes a special surprise appearance.
Of his career move, Lambert commented, “I was definitely inspired by other porn journalists who recently turned to directing. After all, doesn’t everyone really want to direct?”
Currently available for preorder at LucasEntertainment.com, Encounters: The Point of No Return will be released on April 15.
