Kay Brandt Teams With Kinkfunder to Crowdfund Next Movie

LOS ANGELES—Veteran adult film director Kay Brandt has launched a crowdfunding campaign for her next project based on a series of her erotic novels. Brandt is working with a new Chicago-based platform called Kinkfunder, which is making its debut with the campaign. “They wanted me to be their first campaign,” Brandt told AVN. “Coming on the heels of Safe Landings and the cross marketing of the book and making a movie based on the book this interested them because it’s a different angle with a bit more substance to it.” Brandt wrote and directed Safe Landings last year for Adam & Eve, adapting the screenplay from her book of the same name. The movie has been nominated for six 2016 AVN Awards, including Best Director-Feature, Best Drama, Best Screenplay, Best Marketing Campaign and two Best Supporting Actor nods—for Xander Corvus and Marcus London. The 33rd annual AVN Awards Show is Jan. 23 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. She said the Kinkfunder campaign is to create the budget for a film about the erotic short story, Servant Quarter Stepbrothers, Story 1: Revenge of the Stepmother.  It's the first release in a book series about a scorned woman who's inherited everything from her scoundrel of a billionaire husband in the shadow of his untimely passing.   The filmmaker said she turned to crowdfunding primarily because of the creative license it affords her. “There’s a lot of freedom in being able to have your own funds and that’s what interests me is the freedom,” Brandt said. “I have a series of short books that sell very well on Amazon that would make great movies. Because they’re short books, I want to combine Book 1 and Book 2 into the first movie. The second book is called The Maid and the Virgin. The stories take place in one location in a mansion. It’s a twisted, dramatic, erotic story.” Brandt is setting out to raise $40,000 for what would be a three-day shoot. She already has an all-star cast attached to the film that includes India Summer, August Ames,  Mercedes Carrera, Dava Foxx, Mia Malkova, Xander Corvus, Marcus London and Dane Cross. Ames starred in Safe Landings opposite Corvus and London. “I’ve spoken with all of them and they’re excited about the idea and really want to be involved,” Brandt said. “The idea of something like this working gives hope to all of us.” She has set up a list of rewards for the top funders of the 30-day campaign. “For as little as a 25 dollar contribution, anybody can be a part of creating the budget for this project,” Brandt continued.  “My big feeling is whatever happens with this is if me or someone else like me doesn’t go forward and try this new avenue, we’re just kind of stuck to the same old, same old as filmmakers. “As an artist to have other options is really important. If we achieve our goal, then the production will begin in February.”  Brandt has written and directed more than 40 adult films since 2009. Click here for Brandt's Kinkfunder page.
