B. Skow Branches Out With New Division at Girlfriends Films

LOS ANGELES—B.Skow will take the helm of a new division of Girlfriends Films with a focus on producing and directing only boy/girl movies. Now in his fourth year with Girlfriends Films, Skow said the change is part of a natural progression that will allow him to do what he does best more often—create unconventional porn. “When we started the partnership we split ownership of the movies and now Girlfriends is going to buy all the rights and own Skow for Girlfriends, so I can just shoot now,” Skow explained. “I won’t be running the company. I’ll be directing and shooting more movies, expanding on the series. “With Sexually Explicit we’re coming up to our 10th one. Beautiful New Faces is on No. 7; I just shot No. 8. Ass Versus Pussy, we just did No. 2, I’m about to shoot No. 3. So we’re going to expand on all of our series now. We’ll expand on DVD and then eventually into web so that the series will have their own sites.” The new division and movies will be branded simply as BSkow in the spirit of his namesake website, BSkow.com, that contains individual sex scenes and full movies from his extensive library. “I won’t be shooting girl/girl anymore and I won’t be doing any of the business end of it anymore,” Skow continued. “I’ll just be concentrating on designing, and the look of the company and the type of movies that we do. So I’ll be shooting more and concentrating on building the company a lot more now. I’ll also be bringing in new directors eventually.” Skow first teamed with Girlfriends Films in 2012, ushering the lesbian porn heavyweight into the boy/girl arena with five hardcore features in his first full year shooting for the Skow for Girlfriends label; in addition, he wrote and called the shots for 24 lesbian titles. Since then he’s diversified Girlfriends Films’ boy/girl presence with his flair for progressive filmmaking that often departs from traditional gonzo or feature fare. In short, Skow’s product is anything but typical. “He’s been doing so many different things and now he’s rebranding and concentrating on the features and the boy/girl,” said Girlfriends Films president Moose. “It takes a special talent, skill and artistic vision to even try to do what he’s done.” Calling Skow “old school” and “a workhorse,” Moose said the time was right for the new arrangement. Their plans call for more marketing and promotion behind the BSkow division than ever. “He pushes the limits,” Moose added. “With the stills, the camerawork, the tease, it’s this whole package. [Skow’s] a true artist that keeps wanting to do better and better.” Part of Skow’s modus operandi is to maintain the quality of his DVDs, rewarding the fans who still buy. “Our DVDs definitely have a lot more than most companies with the amount of interviews and the amount of tease we put on them. I really still concentrate on that market, too. Most of the movies I put out now are two-disc sets,” Skow said. “I do two discs to keep the quality up. Most companies put four hours on one DVD; the most I’ll put is two or two-and-a-half hours. So our bonus scenes aren’t low-res, shitty bonus scenes. You watch any DVD and go to the bonus scene, it looks like shit. Ours are the same quality as the movie; they’re authored in the same exact quality that the movie is authored in.” He’ll often include a bonus scene on both discs of a two-disc set. “I just want to make sure that we still concentrate on that market, that we don’t let our core customers down,” he added. “Because we’ve built up a pretty big fanbase with people buying and collecting our movies. “It’s kind of cool when someone buys your DVD. You don’t really know when they’re clicking on your site and it’s nice to hear you have this much traffic. But if someone actually goes somewhere and opens it and wants to look at it, I want to make sure there’s something there to open. We’re not just throwing together web scenes like everyone else. When I make a DVD, I make that separate when I think about where the scenes are going to go. I still use that as my core idea and the place I started.” A former mainstream photographer from Elizabeth, N.J., who shot national ad campaigns and celebrity portraits before porn, Skow is in his 30th year making his living behind a camera. He shot hundreds of box covers for Vivid Entertainment before leaving the company to launch his own studio; his resume also includes a year’s worth of Hustler magazine covers. “I’m more excited than ever to keep going now,” said Skow, now more than 200 movies into his directing career that includes 56 boy/girl titles for the Skow for Girlfriends label in three-and-a-half years. “Now I have the opportunity to really expand and get out there. Before I was limited with how much I could actually shoot, dealing with 2257 [record-keeping] and accounting and bookkeeping and checks. I’ll be freed up with that to concentrate more on shooting.” Skow’s latest is Sex Footage: Natural Sluts, with Jade Nile, Katrina Jade, Alexis Adams and Teanna Trump.
