There has been super exciting stuff happening for Lightsouthern in 2018. We won a few awards, we were nominated for a few more, we finished up a national tour of Sexpo, we created the first Erika Lust Film to come out of Australia, and also produced a two-part film feature series called Super Host.

With 13 cast members, 9 scenes and some bloody top notch acting by our wonderful Aussie performers Super Host went from one concept, to another, then to another in 6 days. The cast includes some familiar faces, and some incredible newbies! Starring Blake Wilde and Jake Shy, as a house-proud married couple that get their kicks from watching and manipulating their guests in their spare room-to-rent-to-the-public-on-a-nightly basis.

THE CAST

Blake Wilde (the performer of everyones dreams)

Jake Shy (new kid on the block, amazing acting skills & fashion sense)

Violet Russo (the talent permeating from Violet’s skin is ridiculous)

Daliah Amor (Winner Best Porn Newcomer 2018, BDSM aficionado)

Madison Missina (Winner Porn Star of the Year 2018,  check her out in Momentum Vol.2)

Taylor (Momentum Vol. 4 fame, Setting the standard on how to be the best male performer in the biz),

Luc Dean (Momentum Vol.4 Fame, Setting the standard on how to be the best male performer – maybe him and Taylor should fight? We’ll film it),

Jessie Lee Pierce (baddest babe ever, with killer acting chops)

Stevie Green (Creative genius, top gal, loves fortune cookies)

Rosie (of GoW fame, also find Rosie on our Cinema in Australian Bush Adventures)

Laney Day (Check Laney out in Momentum Vol. 3 & 4, I could work with Laney all day everyday),

Stirling Cooper (AVN best newcomer Nominee 2019)

Verde (Unreleased ‘Kinkstergram’, total down to earth babe)

Kink, Shibari (does that fall into Kink? spose), manipulation, Voyeurism, a FOURWAY, cheating wives, cheating husbands, and a very sexy queer cult action.

Having a huge variety of characters was something new, and frankly stressful, however and each performer slotted into those characters so beautifully and impressively. We had many laughs, I can’t thank them enough. Each performer went above and beyond, the acting, the going along with whatever crazy idea we had, Your outfits and props! (Special mention to Jake and Violet).

Our crew was perfect. It’s always tricky finding the right mix of people who can adapt in a fast paced, always evolving and intense environment. Production went for six consecutive days and we produced two Feature FILMS. I can proudly say that with Kristy, Bo, Esmee, Pasha and myself, we created a highly functional team. I am eternally thankful for all their hard work, rolling with schedule changes, cancellations, solving shit on the go and most importantly helping give the performers a safe, enjoyable experience and work environment.

I’m considering making follow up films, or at least scenes. There were a lot of ideas being thrown around the set. The premise is solid, the cast on point so why wouldn’t we? Blake should start dusting off those peach pants.

Thanks to Beate Uhse for giving us another shot at some pretty crazy Aussie films, Fleshlight Australia for donating some toys and supporting fellow Aussie business.

Let’s do it again soon. X

Both films will be available in 2019, along with photo sets by the wonderful Kristy at dirterotic.com, with Behind the Scenes Documentaries only on Lightsouthern CINEMA.

In late October the Australian Adult Industry Awards was held again in Melbourne. The last time I attended one of these was back in 2011, representing Abbywinters. So I decided it was high time to put my frock on and attend.

Lightsouthern was nominated for a whopping 7 Awards…

We managed to escape the strip club with two little diamonds, winning:

BEST PORN PRODUCTION COMPANY

INDUSTRY SUPPORTING BUSINESS

The last time Lightsouthern won anything in Australia was back in 2013 at the Eros Shine Awards where we picked up ‘Best Porn Production Company.’

I’d like to say thank you to the AAIAs for holding the Industry Event (and for making the food spectacular), the vibe of the evening was light, fun and it seemed like there was no ego or bullshit – which was refreshing and frankly surprising.  Also to you little legends in the public that got on and voted. I appreciate YOU.

Congratulation to all the winners.

Lastly, we were nominated for a Venus Award, Berlin for Best International Series for our Momentum Films, however Erika Lust took that one out – though we were pumped to be alongside such good company.
