SANTA MONICA, Calif. – Erotic filmmaker Andrew Blake unveils his concept of “ambient video” in X2, his latest DVD release, which hits the streets today from Studio A Entertainment.
A series of erotic vignettes, shot on film and first shown as members-only content on andrewblake.com, X2 stars Elena Rivera, a “tall exotic beauty” whom Blake was “photographing all the time” earlier this year.
“I did this movie as free association, with juxtaposed movement, one movement leading into another,” Blake told AVN.
The centerpiece of X2 is a 33-minute segment titled “Contempt.”
“I designed it as an ambient video,” he said, calling it a solution to the question, “What can you do with your TV set instead of watching CSI?”
“Contempt” can be looped and played endlessly. “It’s like a video painting that you can leave on and glance up at. The idea was to create a stand-alone art piece.”
He compared the concept, which he plans to explore and develop further, to ambient music: “I’m complementing that with visuals.”
As for his artistic direction, he said, “‘Contempt’ is my statement. We’ll see where that goes.”
Besides Rivera, X2’s all-female cast includes Bianca Sweet, Melissa, Jennifer Dark, Chiane, Ashley Paige, Natasha Nice, Ann Marie, Gwendoline, Veronica, with appearances by Blake favorites Aria Giovanni and Jelena Jensen.
Blake also revealed to AVN that his latest muse is starlet Courtney Page, whom he is grooming for future scenes.
