Production Wraps on Showcase 'Jessica Drake Is Wicked'

LOS ANGELES—Wicked Pictures announces that the last shot has been captured for award-winning director Brad Armstrong's highly buzzed-about star showcase of longtime Wicked Girl Jessica Drake, due out in September and aptly titled Jessica Drake Is Wicked. "I've wanted to do a showcase for a long time, something that reflects where I am as a performer and, more importantly, as a person,” Drake says of the project’s genesis. "Jessica Drake Is Wicked does just that. I hope to challenge the viewer's thoughts and beliefs surrounding sexuality and the confines we often adhere to. When I first started in the adult business over a decade ago, I conformed to what I ‘thought’ my target audience was. After signing with Wicked, as the years passed and I freely explored my sexuality both on and off camera and also became a sex educator, I realized it was more important to give room to the fluidity of my sexuality, and I'm happy that my fans have accompanied me along the way.” The movie has drawn particular attention for including both its star's and the studio's first ever scene with transgender performers. Titled "Beauty," the scene places Drake opposite top trans talent Venus Lux, Domino Presley and reigning AVN Transsexual Performer of the Year Aubrey Kate. Mused Drake about the scene's significance, “I am honored to continue to grow along with such a legendary powerhouse in the adult world as Wicked Pictures.” For Armstrong's part, he reflected, “Shooting Jessica Drake Is Wicked was kind of like going back to my vignette roots. That's mostly what I shot when I started in the mid-nineties. Heavily art-directed and stylized ‘all sex’ movies with the contract girls in most or all of the scenes were my forté. I was shooting ‘showcase’ movies before they had a name. It was great to just do ‘art for art’s sake’ again; styling women to make them look their best and building a cool set where once there was nothing is really satisfying. We got a lot of amazing visuals in every scene, and although each of the concepts is incredibly diverse we seemed to outdo ourselves as the shoot went on. Kudos to the cinematographers, Barrett Blade and Alex Ladd, as well as my set-and-props team, Andy Appleton and Dirk Huge. I couldn't have done it without them.” Drake shared Armstrong's enthusiasm about the diverse style of each scene, from a hyperreal ‘Cirque du Sex’ featuring Abella Danger, Angela White, Vicki Chase, Brandy Aniston and Anikka Albrite; and an intense interracial blowbang ('Teamwork') with Rob Piper, Ricky Johnson, Dirk Huge and Isiah Maxwell; to equally potent encounters with Anna Bell Peaks, Sarah Jessie, Lily Lane, Small Hands, Will Havoc ('Detention') and Ryan Driller ('Orignal Sin'). “I’m very grateful for our Wicked visionary, Brad Armstrong," she gushed. "With his amazing art direction, set design, wardrobe and styling ability, he created aesthetically sensual environments for some of the best sex cameras have ever captured! This movie is also a showcase for him as well—it showcases his talent as a truly gifted director.” Of his star, Armstrong extolled, “She was a real trooper. A lot of showcases get shot over a long period of time, sometimes weeks or even months between scenes. We shot a-day-on-a-day-off all the whole way through, so she definitely had her work cut out for her. She had sex with eighteen people over the five day span of the movie, fifteen of whom she'd never worked with before. So there's plenty of action, with new and exciting scenes for her fans to enjoy. In short, a great cast, great wardrobe, great sets, great cinematography and great sex. What's not to love?” “I am grateful to Brad and Wicked for giving me the chance to bring my dreams and fantasies to life,” Drake added. “And, most of all, for recognizing the importance of diversity and inclusion.” Jessica Drake Is Wicked is scheduled to release on DVD September 20.
