Shine Louise Houston’s PINK LABEL: Digital Distribution for Emerging & Independent Adult Filmmakers
Houston’s new fair-trade online distribution creates profitable queer-owned streaming hub
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (May 30th) — Shine Louise Houston is no stranger to independent adult video production. The feminist porn award-winning director and founder of Pink & White Productions, Houston has produced feature films and runs her independent websites with robust membership and affiliate programs, complete with mobile-optimization and live-streaming.
Based in San Francisco, California, Houston’s company boasts a sustainable business model and has experienced increased financial growth through marketing progressive, high-quality pornography to sex-positive viewers hungry for alternative depictions of sex-positive and diverse sexuality.
Following her mission and ethical business practices, Houston’s new project PINK LABEL is a fair-trade digital distribution outlet designed for emerging and independent adult filmmakers. Emerging filmmakers will find enthusiastic audiences and exposure, as well as ethical, fair-trade commission for their work. PINK LABEL presents curated content that showcases acclaimed feminist filmmakers who share Houston’s values.
N. Maxwell Lander is a queer photo-based digital artist. She is constantly finding new renditions for her contemporary creativity. Maxwell’s work attempts to draw a thin line between beauty and vulgarity, restriction and hedonism, decency and decadence –- to make them all one and the same. Her works on PinkLabel.tv include Maybe He’s Gifted, winner of the 2011 Feminist Porn Award’s “Golden Beaver” for Canadian Filmmakers. Her subsequent films 98 Bit and Emile are collected in N. Maxwell Lander: Portraits. Emile won “Best Short” at the 2012 Feminist Porn Awards.
N. Maxwell Lander: Portraits collects two films from award-winning photographer and filmmaker N. Max Lander. In the first portrait, Emile, the mundane and erotic transubstantiate into a powerful trance-like solo performance by Geena Rose, a vision in sepia and cigarette smoke. In contrast, 98 bit (art-directed by Rose) is an ultraviolet video game glitch in ecstatic neon, loading up Jinxy Laroue as a strap-on wielding raver fantasy and ending with a dayglow cumshot. Lander is a master of pairing vision with sound, and Portraits features a superb soundtrack with “the Right Voice” by Morgant J, “George’s House” by Vidian, and “Bend” by BinarPilot.
Maybe He’s Gifted is a visually-stunning and dream-like short from Feminist Porn Award winner N. Max Lander. The camera never holds a single shot for more than a moment, dicing up time and movement in time with the hypnotic soundtrack as Billy the Kid and Varina Adams orbit each others’ bodies before colliding with all the heat and urgency of burning stars. Our view comes in and out of focus as if intoxicated by their lust. This is pornography as art, pure and simple.
PINK LABEL features progressive porn studios including films by legendary pornographer and artist Annie Sprinkle, star performers-turned star-producers duo Dylan Ryan and Rozen DeBowe of the newly minted Femmerati Productions, queer porn dynamite Trouble Films presenting work by Courtney Trouble and Tina Horn, art porn powerhouse Carlos Batts of C Batts Fly and his muse April Flores, transmale sex education leaders T-Wood Pictures, Harvard-graduate Jennifer Lyon Bell and her exquisite Blue Artichoke Films, Transwomen Porn Project director Tobi Hill-Meyer, Petra Joy, Ms Naughty, Sadie Lune, Buck Angel, Jiz Lee, Christian Slaughter, and the feminist porn award-winning queer films of Shine Louise Houston and Pink & White Productions.
