(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- Eon McKai, head of the new Vivid-Alt imprint with Vivid Entertainment, will be a guest lecturer at a class on pornographic film at University of California, Santa Barbara on Wednesday, May 24th.

The 26-year-old McKai holds a masters degree from California Institute of the Arts (Cal Arts) and has taught filmmaking in the past. As guest lecturer for the Department of Film Studies at UCSB, McKai will talk about the influences on his filmmaking. "I loved the films of the '70s and '80s, especially the work of Alex de Renzy and Gregory Dark, " said McKai.

It was McKai's early independent films that resulted in the emergence of the alt-adult movement and turned him into a media sensation. The buzz resulted in positive profiles in the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and the Village Voice.

A highlight of McKai's lecture will be his recent move to Vivid Entertainment and his search for alternative, progressive talent and cutting-edge productions with Vivid-Alt. Students will screen clips that McKai chose himself as examples for his lecture.

"It wasn't that long ago that I was working on my own Masters Degree at CalArts, so it's a great thrill to be going back to school to talk about porn with film students," noted McKai.

McKai will be joined by alt-porn director/star, Joanna Angel, who will be talking about her move from the web to DVDs. The gorgeous, punk Angel is the guiding light behind BurningAngel.com, a website which unites indie music and pornography.
