Harmony Films Gets 2 XBIZ Award Nominations

LOS ANGELES — U.K.-based adult production house Harmony Films received two XBIZ Award nominations for its all-sex productions.

Harmony Films is up for XBIZ's Emerging Movie Studio of the Year award, and the company's head of production, Gazzman, was nominated for Gonzo Director of the Year.

"We've made amazing strides in the last year to build our name outside of the U.K.," said Jason Maskell, manager of sales and marketing. "I credit this to the international outlook we have in our productions. But we also don't forget that at the end of the day, we're in the business of making dirty movies. We've won trophies from every major adult award show and we're looking forward to our showing at the XBIZ Awards Show."

Gazzman, who also is no stranger to international awards, was appreciative of the adult trade magazine's recognition of his work.

"I take great care to incorporate the best of feature productions, like sets, locations and videography, with the dirty, nasty and filthy hardcore of the gonzo side of the industry," Gazzman said. "It's a combination that works well with me and from the response I've gotten over the years, it's something the fans have taken to as well."

The XBIZ Awards will be held on Feb. 7 at The Highlands in Hollywood, Calif., during the XBIZ '08 Hollywood Conference.
