Patrick Collins Names Axel Braun General Manager

(CHATSWORTH, CA) -- Patrick Collins, owner of Elegant Angel Productions, has just announced that Axel Braun will be acting as the new General Manager of the company.

Collins, who for several years had been focusing mainly on directing and pursuing his musical interests, came back full-time to the company in June of 2002 and took over the daily operations because he felt the company needed a more hands-on approach. Though being pleased with the results of his hard work, Collins feels that he needs to work more closely with the productions while Braun helms the organizational and managerial aspects of the operation for the true potential for the company to be realized. During the past several months, Collins had been searching for someone that was adept in productivity and communication. He found that person in Braun, and has chosen him because of his ability to motivate employees as well as having excellent organizational skills.

From Collins... "I feel we currently have the best stable of directors in our company's history. To fully realize our potential in this area we need an individual that understands all aspects of production, and can work directly with me on a daily basis. I have great confidence that Axel is the right choice. In the six months he spent here as an exclusive contract director he has proven to me his integrity, reliability, and loyalty. He has a tremendous amount of management experience, having operated his own production business for the past several years, as well as invaluable experience in all areas of the adult industry, where he was literally born. He is organized, dependable, driven, and has a great eye for detail. I couldn't have made a better choice."

Collins will continue being hands-on in his company, but this new system will help to better direct the focus of Elegant Angel to position it for long-term growth while at the same time allowing him to do more of his own productions.

Axel Braun is the son of legendary pornographer Lasse Braun. Growing up in this environment sparked an interest in the adult entertainment world, as well as an interest in human nature. Axel grew up in Italy, where he majored in psychology in college, then, in the late 80's moved to Hollywood to attend film school. Working with his father as an assistant director, writer, producer, cameraman, and editor, Axel gained knowledge in every aspect of the business.

In 1995 Axel founded his own independent production company: "Axel Braun Productions". His first movie, "The Erotic Adventures of the G-Man", was the first installment of a series which was hugely successful throughout Europe. In this series, Axel displayed his fondness for what later became his signature fetish: Female Ejaculation.

After several other movies that were well received and often critically acclaimed in Europe, Axel continued producing his own titles and selling the rights to various companies, before signing an exclusive directing deal with Elegant Angel in June of 2002. While his new position will not allow him to shoot as much as before, he will continue to direct the new hit series "The Squirting Adventures of Dr. G". Axel, who has fully explored the subject of female squirting, has also recently insured his hands with the Lloyds of London for $2,000,000 each. For more detailed information, go to AxelBraun.com.

Axel has this to say about his new position and future with the company, "I see this as a major step up in my professional life, and I know I can make a difference and bring something new to the company. I have known Patrick Collins for quite a while, and I have a great deal of respect for him. He is not only an inspiration and a mentor, but also a true friend. My plan is very detailed, and the changes that I am implementing will allow us to increase productivity while at the same time maintaining the quality of content for which Elegant Angel is recognized. I will be concentrating on opening up new markets in cable and satellite, as well as working closely with Robert S. Connett, director of Operations for Elegant Angel Interactive.
