News: Lucas Kazan Marks 10 Years of Gay Porn

Lucas Kazan Productions is celebrating 10 years of award-winning movies. From Journey to Italy (a young Derek Cameron in the wilds of Tuscany—what could be better?) to the Hotel Italia films, this Los Angeles–based company has produced some of porn’s most beautiful and arty works. Its recently relaunched Web site has also put them on the cutting edge of the jizz biz. And earlier this year, director Lucas Kazan was inducted into the GAYVN Hall of Fame. Now, European publisher Bruno Gmuender is set to release Lucas Kazan: Italian Style, a 96-page photo book delivering “high-class Mediterranean masculinity.” And the Kazan roster of exclusives is expected to make in-store appearances in Milan, Bologna and Rome during Gay Pride.

“We never set out to build a factory and to crank out videos,” Kazan says. “Instead, we aimed for higher production values, exclusive models and exotic locations. We believed back then, and believe today, that porn could be erotic and visually spectacular and professionally lensed. It is more than mere acrobatics; it’s about emotions and our collective psyche.”

Kazan and company have a 10th-anniversary feature film in the works that will be filmed in southern Italy later this month and will star a bevy of foreign newcomers, including studly Bruno. Italian and Other Strangers will drop in the fall. For more information, visit
