Girlfriends Films Title to Be Released Exclusively on HotMovies
Girlfriends Films creator and CEO Dan O’Connell said he has no plans to release the title anywhere else.
“It’s a little more risqué, shot and edited in what we think is the ideal style for VOD,” he said.
“Given our feedback experience as HotMovies.com’s number one studio for the past four years, I knew it would be the best delivery alternative for this movie.”
Starring Rayveness, Faye Reagan, Ariella Ferrara, Georgia Jones, Shay Fox, Tanya Tate, Tabby and Shyla Jennings, the movie stands as a departure from the general Girlfriends Films formula, which often focuses on older/younger lesbian relationships and seductions and instead focuses on some edgier topics, including dominance and submission, group play and hazing, the company said.
“Poor Little Shyla” also stars Faye Reagan, Georgia Jones and RayVeness.
“When and if we ever decide to release it on disk, it will have already become legendary on the Internet,” O’Connell said.
“That should only help us sell more pieces in stores, and meanwhile we will have capitalized on the VOD market in the best possible way.”
HotMovies.com director of business development James Cybert said the VOD-only release is part of a trend.
“More producers every day are warming up to the idea of debuting, or even exclusively selling, movies through VOD,” he said.
“It lowers costs and distribution headaches, and builds a serious buzz for any title that may later hit the shelves of brick and mortar establishments. I’m thrilled [O’Connell] agreed to try a VOD-only release when we asked him.”
Cybert said its a treat to work with these producers on this level.
“In the case of Girlfriends Films, we are afforded the opportunity to bring their many, many fans a fresh and exciting movie from one of our favorite partners. It’s all part of the evolution of distribution, and I know we’ll have much more in store in 2011.”
