CHATSWORTH, Calif. — Adult performer Marco Banderas’ Hot Zone Productions inked a distribution deal with American Xcess. The production company, which Banderas opened in April, will release its first title, “Marco Banderas’ Crazy Dreams” through American Xcess in late September.

Producer/director Banderas also will continue to perform for his own and other companies. At Hot Zone, a variety of female performers will be featured with Banderas, who also directs and performs in several lines for Mercenary Pictures.

“I made a goal to find a distributor for my company this summer and, in between scenes, [Hot Zone Vice President of Production] Lisa DeMarco and I met with many companies,” Banderas said. “We met with American Xcess and we were impressed that the company and its key personnel all had outstanding backgrounds in selling to the all-sex market.”

General manager of American Xcess Harry Jose also is enthusiastic about the new partnership.

"Marco's one of the few men in this business whose status as a performer can carry a production company," Jose said. "He has an international reputation for delivering amazing scenes and he's coming into his own as a skilled director. As everyone knows, summer is a slow time of year and we usually put off meeting with new producers until later in the year — but in this case we couldn't wait to sit down with him and see if we could do business.”

Banderas, who entered the adult business by performing in live sex shows in Barcelona, is somewhat known in the industry for his physical prowess. In “Crazy Dreams,” according to DeMarco, Banderas was able to perform five scenes in a row with six pop shots.

“Marco shot those five scenes in one day,” DeMarco said. “He's a truly wonderful all-around talent in this industry and we couldn't be happier being on board with American Xcess.”

Banderas also is an experienced singer and has recently completed a music video for an original song, titled “Volveras.” The Spanish-speaking entertainer will post the music video on the front page of his soon-to-be-launched website.
