LOS ANGELES, Calif.—Third Degree Films and Zero Tolerance director/producer Miles Long was inducted into the 2011 Adult Video News Hall of Fame after a career spanning more than 12 years and culminating in two AVN Awards, 27 AVN Award nominations, an Empire Award nomination, and an XBIZ Award nomination for Director of the Year – Body of Work.
Since making his debut in the adult industry in 1998, Long’s name has become synonymous with outstanding quality and high production value in the field of adult entertainment. Long’s unique style and his striking talent for being behind the camera are easily recognized to this day as he continues to direct and produce films for the studios.
“I took on directing when I discovered the creative process of making a movie mentally stimulating and much more satisfying for me personally,” said Long. “I enjoyed performing but I wanted to challenge myself and I found taking something that I saw in my mind and making it a reality, which other people could enjoy watching, was very rewarding.”
Long began his career performing in dozens of movies that showcased his natural talent and knack for being in front of the camera. In 2006, he decided to step behind the camera as a cinematographer, photographer, producer and director. He’s been an exclusive director for Third Degree Films and Zero Tolerance Entertainment for the past three years, and in 2009 he won his first AVN Award for Best MILF Release for the best-selling movie The Cougar Club. He later won an AVN Award for Best All-Sex Series for Addicted.
Long has also made a point to branch out into TV, film, periodicals and men's magazines. He is the industry's only Steadicam owner/operator and has shot a wide variety of subject matter, including SWAT team competitions, mixed martial arts events, music videos, motorcycle stunts and television shows.
In addition, he has had layouts and photos grace the pages of numerous magazines, including Maxim, AVN, Club, Club International, Hawk, High Society, Hustler, Cheri, MILFs in Heat and Spicy Latinas.
Long’s latest release is Third Degree Films’ Official Deal or No Deal Parody, starring Alexis Texas and Gracie Glam, hits streets this week.
