(HOLLYWOOD, CA) -- Last year Metro Interactive and Cal Vista released the debut title from industry veteran DCypher, Prisoner, with great hopes. AVN lauded the title with an Editor's Choice, AAAA 1/2 rating, and eight pre-noms. By the time of the award show Prisoner had established itself as a favorite amongst critics, drawing six nominations including Best Screenplay, Best Director, and Best Feature - Video. Heidi Joy Pike called it the best feature she had seen by far that year, stunning the competition and sending ripples and whispers through the industry.
Metro responded by signing the budding auteur to a ten hi-def picture deal and DCypher set to work on his next feature Wonderland, which was featured in this month's AVN magazine as an Editor's Choice with AAAA 1/2 rating, and six pre-noms, including Best Screenplay, Best Director, and Best Feature - Video. The movie, which is slated for release on April 25th, 2006, is rapidly gaining media attention, both online and in print, propelling pre-sale orders to record heights for the company.
Despite being over a month away from release Wonderland has already garnered the distinction of its own sub-genre within the feature category by one critic, Lit Porn, so-called for all of the literary references seamlessly implemented into the plot structure. It's a badge the director wears with pride.
"I'm interested in well crafted story lines that engage the viewer," explains DCypher. "Too many people that make features try to cut out all of the interesting dialogue and cerebral qualities of their show, either because they are afraid to push their performers or because they don't understand how it operates inside a narrative. My goal is to find the perfect synergy between the two, between the intellect and the heart, without compromising the intensity of the sex. That's the formula."
It would seem that the formula is working out well for the fastest rising feature in porn history and that Metro's investment is paying off, big time.
This week the XRCO released their nominations for 2006, and once again Prisoner made the cut, against films and productions that cost literally ten times that amount to create, were fueled by extensive marketing campaigns, and starred the biggest names in all of porn. Prisoner has been nominated for the Best release of the Year award with the New Devil in Miss Jones, Pirates, Dark Side, Catherine, Camp Cuddly Pines Power Tool Massacre, Squealer, and Vault of Whores.
"It's an honor to see my movie alongside such extraordinary productions," claims DCypher. "I wanted to experience what it would be like to see a movie made the way I saw it in my mind when I wrote it. Metro gave me that opportunity and I am glad that I could repay them with this beautiful movie," said DCypher.
To date DCypher has created seven titles for Cal Vista, all glossy features, all shot in true high definition. Wonderland is only the second in what promises to be an extraordinary series of titles from the versatile visionary.
"The next four titles I am working on in my contract are much more controversial," shares DCypher. "This industry has no idea what's coming. It's going to be awesome to watch them unfold, one after the next. I can barely wait to see how people react to these pictures."
