Miles Long Earns XBIZ Nomination for Director of the Year

LOS ANGELES — Veteran director Miles Long has earned a nomination for Director of the Year - Body of Work for the 2011 XBIZ Awards on Feb. 9 at the Hollywood Palladium.

Long's adult movie career has spanned more than 12 years, the past three of which he has been exclusively directing for Third Degree Films and Zero Tolerance. In 2010, he released several movies through Third Degree including "Nylons 7 & 8," "Vajazzled," "Hitchhikers," "Phone Fucks," "Busty Office MILFS 2," "Girlfriends 2" and "Upskirts 2." His movie "Nylons 7" is nominated for Gonzo Release of the Year.

Long began his career as a performer before stepping behind the camera in 2006 as a cinematographer, photographer, producer, and director.

“I took on directing when I discovered the creative process of making a movie mentally stimulating and much more satisfying for me personally,” Long said. “I enjoyed performing but I wanted to challenge myself and I found taking something that I saw in my mind and making it a reality, which other people could enjoy watching, was very rewarding.”

His most recent releases are the “Official Deal or No Deal Parody” starring Alexis Texas and Gracie Glam and "Young Thighs in Knee Highs" featuring Lexi Belle.
