As for the estrangement between Melissa Hill and Rodney Moore, perhaps now that she has made the A list she would prefer to put some distance between herself and her gonzo roots.
I sense that your comment may have a touch of sarcasm, but in the event that anyone takes it seriously, I must say the following:
Let no one think that "GONZO" is lower on the totem pole than being on some so-called A list doing features. I have shot hundreds of gonzo scenes, a year ago I did a feature with a full script, crew, locations "A" talent, the whole 9 yards, it came out good, was the Editors Choice in AVN with 4 and 1/2 stars, and I went right back to shooting GONZO and haven't done another feature since. I prefer shooting GONZO style, I feel I get more real performances, there much more fun to do, and I'd take a well shot gonzo title any day over some overblown feature. Buttman won the best film award for his Face Dance feature a couple of years back, but he also went right back to shooting his Gonzo style movies. Also, the cover of the February AVN has the headline, "Are Adult Features Dead". I know of 2 companies who have decided to cease producing features and concentrate on GONZO. When I rented videos before I started making them, I rarely rented a feature. I found them dull and unerotic (except maybe for an occasional Andrew Blake Scene). I always went straight to the Amateur rack where I had a much better chance of seeing real sex, real orgasms, real moaning and groaning, not overhyped pornstars faking it for their daily pay check. Gonzo is not the minor leagues, GONZO is a different league, and in my opinion, a better league. Personally, I think going from GONZO to features is a step down in eroticism.
P.S. Melissa put up distance long before she made the A list, but I still respect her talent. I think its just wasted on features.Rodney Visit the Nookie Net at www.rodneymoore.com
