Isabella Sinclaire reopens top fetish video company
Professional Dominatrix and Fetish Model Isabella Sinclaire has officially announced the reopening of fetish film production company GwenMedia, and has already set plans in motion to bring the former industry leader in high quality bdsm and latex videos back to the top of its game. In conjunction with the reopening announcement, she also announced the hiring of former co-founder and acclaimed fetish video filmmaker John Fitzgerald as Head of Production.
Both announcements should come as a pleasant surprise to GwenMedia fans who might have feared the death of owner Bob Zak last year would be the end of the company. But behind the scenes, Zak and Sinclaire had been embroiled in a lengthy litigation in which Sinclaire, a co-producer of the famed “Ivy Manor” series for GwenMedia, as well as its star, fought Zak over royalty issues from sales of the series. Shortly after Zak’s death, the court ordered all assets of GwenMedia awarded to Ms. Sinclaire.
With the appointment of Fitzgerald in the role of Head of Production, both feel they can return GwenMedia to its early glory. “John and I have always had a wonderfully collaborative relationship,” says Sinclaire. “The early films of GwenMedia, which he wrote and directed, were by far a higher quality than the later videos after he left the company. I would like to return to that early quality for the fans, and give them something to get excited about again.” Fitzgerald insists that the plan is quality, not quantity. “We don’t feel our job is to put out as many videos as possible, but rather to raise the bar on the high-end latex, fetish and bdsm film,” Fitzgerald adds. “We want to make videos that are both kinky and sexy, but still ensure they have fun stories and high production values.”
As if that isn’t enough, Sinclaire is also announcing a return to the original “Ivy Manor” series. “John and I had such high hopes for that 10-part series. But after he left, the quality shifted and I was never happy,” she says. “We’re going to re-start the series from Ivy Manor 5, the first one that John was not involved in.” With an entirely new script, and with Fitzgerald at the helm, Sinclaire is confident that the series will return to its original glory. Production for “Ivy Manor 5: Rubber Dreams” has been slated for Spring 2007.
Fitzgerald realizes he can’t possibly produce all GwenMedia content while still managing overall creative direction. “I’m seeking other filmmakers who might fit into the new GwenMedia fold,” he announced as well. “I’m even entertaining the concept of some models I’ve worked with in the past. Many of them are very creative, and just need help with the more technical aspects of the process. That’s what I can help with.” Interested filmmakers should contact Fitzgerald for more information. “I’m definitely holding the bar high, though. But if you think you have what it takes, I want to hear from you.”
