PORN VALLEY—For a man who had no intention of building a career on this continent, things have gone very, very well for Keiran Lee in North America.
“I came over to America by mistake for Danny Mountain’s wedding to Eva Angelina,” the big-dicked British adult star told AVN. “Someone suggested that I shoot for Brazzers.”
That was just the beginning of a very productive partnership that culminated this week with the release of Lee’s feature directorial debut, a Halloween-themed movie from Digital Playground titled Hot Chicks Big Fangs.
Brazzers—one of the companies under the umbrella of Manwin (now renamed MindGeek)—snapped up the suave performer right away, offering him an exclusive contract and famously insuring his massive member for $1 million with Lloyd’s of London.
When he arrived on these shores, he was already a star in his native U.K. “What happened with myself,” Lee said, “I started about 12 years in the industry for a company called Killergram and they had me under contract for four years.”
Then came the move to Brazzers. Now, six years later, he’s performing in 15 scenes a month as well as directing another 12 scenes. And since he directs himself sometimes, Lee usually ends up doing about 20 scenes a month.
After Manwin took control of Digital Playground, Lee started working regularly for that studio too. “I was quite picky,” Lee said. “I shot about seven movies [last year], including Skip Trace.”
In September, Lee was approached about directing a feature for Digital Playground. He was asked to shoot it “on the 28th or 29th—I thought they meant October.” Instead, the shoot was supposed to begin in six days.
“They asked for a Halloween movie. I like the aspect of vampires, because you can make that very realistic,” he said. So Lee sat down with wife Kirsten Price, who is an adult star in her own right and no stranger to exclusive contracts, and banged out a script set in a mysterious house in the woods populated by beautiful women who keep their youth by drinking the blood of young men.
His previous experience was “very different to how a feature film is shot,” Lee said, noting that he gets finished scripts from Canadian writers for the Brazzers scenes. “This was the first time I wrote the script and did all the planning.”
Lee took care to emphasize the writing was a joint venture. “Kirsten, she’s amazing. She’s such a creative writer,” Lee enthused. “We sat on a Sunday afternoon for six hours and we ended up writing the script.”
Playing the bodacious blood-drainers are Monique Alexander, Nikki Benz, Destiny Dixon, Romi Rain and Bonnie Rotten (the latter was dubbed Hottest New Girl at this month’s Sex Awards). The sucked-upon studs are Bill Bailey, Mick Blue, Erik Everhard, John Strong and Clover.
The director demurred when asked which was his favorite scene. “Bonnie Rotten’s was a very intense scene; the Mick Blue scene was very erotic.” While he didn’t want to play favorites among the scenes, he did admit that one of his high points was having Romi Rain hoisted up on a crane high in the air and plunged into a pool, from which she was yanked out so that it appeared she was leaping from the water.
Lee also enjoyed all the trappings of making a vampire movie. “We had a lot of special effects and a lot of makeup. We had to attach fake fangs on the girls,” he said. And of course plenty of fake blood came into play.
Price made an equally significant contribution to the look of the movie, Lee explained: “She styled every one of the girls.”
Asked what he would do differently on his second feature, Lee laughed and said, “Probably give myself more time.”
The opportunity to do it again is coming right away. “I just signed a deal now with Digital [Playground],” Lee said. “I’m going to direct two features a month, a miniseries and also a POV line.”
The DP deal is not Lee’s only new project for the Manwin ... er, MinkGeek brand. “Also I’m going to be producing a TV show for Playboy TV with Kirsten Price as the host,” Lee revealed. “It’s going to be very much like Chelsea Handler, that kind of show.
On tap for the new program will be discussion about the latest adult movies as well as news and topics that have been swirling around in the industry. “Kirsten’s perfect for that,” Lee said. “She’s very quick, she’s very witty.”
