Filling the shoes of legendary filmmaker Viv Thomas might seem like a daunting task, but not when you have the inspired team of director Andrej Lupin and producer Ariel Piper Fawn on hand!
Andrej is a renowned director over on our sister site SexArt; Ariel needs little introduction, having been one of our most popular models before moving into her highly creative production role. There is no doubt her understanding of female sensuality and eroticism has played a huge role in reinvigorating the Viv Thomas brand since it became part of the MetArt Network.
The dynamic duo came in with a bang with the compelling debut Sexpresso, and followed it up with the even more impressive Domestic Desire - my pick for movie of the year. We're now seven movies in, at the time of writing, and each has been entirely individual in terms of plot and production style. I can't wait to see what they come up with next!
I was lucky enough to bag the enviable task of chatting to Ariel about the vision she and Andrej have for VivThomas.com. Here's what the delightful redhead had to say:
Ariel, you shot with Viv Thomas several times - and you were an incredibly popular model on the site! What was it like working with Viv?
APF: I loved every shoot I did with Viv. It had a lot to do with their style - clothing, make-up, different locations, storylines - the kind of thing Andrej and I enjoy shooting now. I liked that the scenes fitted into a story, it was so different from the work I did with other directors. What I really remember most from the shoots was Viv himself. I always loved him, I felt like he was family to me.
Which was your favourite of the movies you appeared in?
APF: Summer Camp Secrets. I really enjoyed the whole experience. Work, girls, crew, dinners, fun, locations - we had a great time!
How do you and Andrej feel about taking over the reins and shooting movies for VivThomas.com?
APF: It is an honour for us! A lot of members on the site have been worried that we would just make the movies similar to the work we do for SexArt, but we don't want to do that. We already see a lot of differences in the way we shoot for VivThomas, and we have more changes planned. The offer to shoot content for VivThomas came very fast, and I think we are improving our work with every production. We want to bring our own vision, but combine it with the magic from the classic VivThomas movies.
Do you think having worked with Viv gives you a better idea of what the VT fans like to see?
APF: I'm not sure about that, because tastes have changed over the years. When I worked with Viv the equipment and production methods were quite different from what we use now. Also, we always had very strong make-up; I would love to bring back the old-fashioned make-up and styling, but I'm afraid people would not like it!
Can you give us any hints about what we will see next from you?
APF: We are busy planning our next shoots, but I don't want to give away too much! We read all the feedback from members, we want to learn from it and do our best to make people happy!
Classic Viv Thomas magic, Andrej Lupin's brilliant direction, and the super-sensual vision of Ariel Piper Fawn? Sounds like a recipe for extraordinary erotic art to me!
