Lucas Kazan, Kristen Bjorn Strike Web Partnership

CYBERSPACE — All-male studios Sarava Productions and Lucas Kazan Productions have announced a marketing and production partnership that will encompass a variety of projects, starting with their respective websites.

Kristen Bjorn and Lucas Kazan are the acclaimed producer-directors, respectively, behind KristenBjorn.com and LucasKazan.com.

"Sharing resources and strategizing together lets us compete more effectively in an ever-more-competitive environment. We'll offer customers more quality content more often," Kazan said. "And we'll be better equipped to face any challenges and to seize the many opportunities out there."

The announcement builds on an existing relationship between the two companies; Bjorn's label co-produced a number of Kazan's multi-awarded international productions earlier this decade.

"I'm confident we shall take the same excellence and the same eroticism online," Bjorn said.

The 21-year-old Sarava Productions was a 2009 XBIZ Award nominee as GLBT Studio of the Year. Its most recent film is the two-part "Action!"

Lucas Kazan Productions was founded in 1998. Its current production is "Italians and Other Strangers," a recent XBIZ Award nominee for GLBT Film of the Year.
