(CHATSWORTH, CA) -- Internationally Acclaimed Director Brings his Fresh Style To Mayhem & Sin City Lines. He hails from a foreign land renowned for romance and a lusty sexual appetite for all of the finest things in life. He is effectively porn royalty, the descendent of a famous pornographer, who took up the mantle of prurience like a true prince of porn. His skills with a camera are legendary, having attended film school both in Milan, at the Academy of Arts, and here in New York, at Columbia.
The persistent rumors of his illicit sexual conquests are as scandalous as they are spellbinding. The consummate expert on female squirting, his hands are insured, for two million dollars each, by Lloyd's of London.
Yes everything you've ever heard about director Axel Braun borders on being fantastical. Every single detail you've ever been told about this man is embroidered with a near mythical quality. What's worse is nearly every single word of it has also probably been true.
And now Axel Braun, fresh off of contract, has entered into a non-exclusive agreement with Sin City to shoot movies for both their Sin City and Mayhem labels.
Influenced by French cinema from Leo Carax's Les Amants Du Pont-Neuf, and American greats like Scorsese and Hitchcock, Axel's unique style is salacious with an acute attention to detail and form.
"We're thrilled to have him here" said Sin City general manager Scott Justice. "The caliber of his work is consistent with the image we've branded for this company. I'm looking forward to seeing his first title."
Starting with Mayhem, Axel is directing an all anal project first, entitled Analogy, which is scheduled to release in August. He is also in development on a more stylized high-end project for Sin City's new hybrid feature line for September release.
"We've shifted our features from being dialogue heavy couples features to high end hardcore art vehicles which highlight both a visual stimulation and the kind of sex that put our Mayhem line on top of the market," explains Sin City Publicist Devan Cypher. "The new line drips with a visceral immediacy.the viewer can connect with it immediately, and very few people inside of adult have the skill and the ability to create what we are looking for. Axel has the eye and the talent to do this kind of movie just right and we're glad to get him."
As for the most epicurean director alive still actively working in porn, he couldn't be happier to have discovered that he and Sin City were such a great fit.
"They're really cool people," Braun said. "It's good to have open lines of communication with the people you work with and to be supported in what you create."
Axel Braun's awards are too many to list, but among the most notable honors he has captured are his Best International Director at the Delta Di Venere Erotic Fair in 2004, his Best Director and Best Film in the 2004 NINFA Awards, his 2004 XRCO-Award for Best Film and Director, his 2004 AVN Award for Best Screenplay, and his Adam Film World 2004 Award for Best Director and Best Film.
