LOS ANGELES—Production powerhouse Wicked Pictures is pleased to announce that two members of its acclaimed creative team, Stormy Daniels and Jessica Drake, are profiled in the September 2013 AVN feature story "Game Changers: 30 Women Power Players in the Adult Industry." Along with 28 other dynamic and multi-faceted individuals, Daniels and Drake are celebrated for "wielding influence over the entertainment and products created in today’s adult marketplace."
Ms. Daniels' profile charts her journey from dancing and performing to writing and eventually directing her own projects. “I can honestly tell you that there’s nowhere else I’d rather be than directing movies,” the AVN Best New Starlet and Best Screenplay award winner is quoted as saying. “From concept to finished editing, it’s in my possession.”
For eight-time AVN award winner Jessica Drake, the magazine celebrates both her critical winning streak (including her status as a record-setting three-time recipient of the publication's Best Actress trophy) to her role as a goodwill ambassador and spokesperson both within and beyond the adult industry. The feature brings a special focus to Jessica Drake's Guide to Wicked Sex, celebrating the award-winning series for delivering "a comprehensive, intelligent breakdown of sexual experimentation." The profile concludes by discussing Ms. Drake's humanitarian endeavors, aptly describing the tireless Wicked Girl as a "student of the world seeking to make it a better place."
For his part, Wicked Pictures President and Owner Steve Orenstein is justifiably proud to see Stormy and Jessica celebrated alongside the industry's top female power brokers, observing, "There are many reasons these talented women have been with Wicked for a decade. They more than deserve this recognition from AVN."
