Publicity-shy whizkid director Andrew Blake belongs to the few remaining visionaries in the porn genre. Nestled between his contemporaries Michael Ninn and Gregory Dark, Blake's erotic visions often include fetish, bondage and lesbo imagery and sometimes exclude heterosexual intercourse entirely.
Blake seldom works off a screenplay. He spends most of the time on his movies with technical issues like editing, cinematography, set design and music. Rarely do his actors and actresses get to utter even a word of dialogue; Blake is only interested in his thespians' looks and moves. His almost entirely plotless movies often play like feature-lenght music videos - MTV for an adult audience, so to speak.
Blake has often cited photographer Helmut Newton as his main influence. In the sixties and seventies, Newton had gained notoriety as a fashion photographer with a penchant for high-gloss bondage imagery. Like Newton, Blake uses only the most beautiful women on this planet for his kinky visuals.
In 1989, Andrew Blake directed his first movie: the aptly titled, surreal fantasy NIGHT TRIPS. Blake served as his own writer, cinematographer and set designer on the many films that followed in the next four years. In 1993, he temporarily left the hardcore business to direct a couple of softcore movies. Blake returned to his roots in 1996 with UNLEASHED.
Andrew Blake currently directs three movies a year for his production company 'Studio A Entertainment'. According to him, the future of porn will be the direct marketing of movies over the internet.
