SAN FRANCISCO — Raging Stallion Studios and Gunzblazing.com announced that they have purchased European production company High Octane.

High Octane comes with a library of over 50 films and an ongoing production agreement that calls for six new releases each year.

High Octane’s brand will continue under the Raging Stallion banner and the next movie in the series, “Masters and Servants,” will be released on June 13.

High Octane director Herve Bodilis (aka Herve Handsome) will continue as head of production, and former High Octane President Patrick Albret will stay on as head of European Operations.

The incorporation of the 50 High Octane films into Raging Stallion's library expands the total collection by about 25 percent and adds another premium, all-original and exclusive paysite to Gunzblazing.com.

Albret commented that joining Raging Stallion and Gunzblazing is a move that will position High Octane well for the future.

“We were in discussions with several other studios about merging operations,” Albret said, “but Raging Stallion and Gunzblazing emerged as the best fit — they are probably the top business in the industry today and they have a strong commitment to continuing the High Octane brand. I still remember an email Chris Ward wrote me many years ago praising our movies. He understands High Octane and I am confident that the future is going to be very, very exciting.”

Raging Stallion President Chris Ward engineered the acquisition as soon as they heard High Octane was available.

“I have always enjoyed High Octane films — indeed, they were some of my favorite films back when I was just starting Raging Stallion,” he said. "High Octane is all about quality — quality men, quality filmmaking and quality fucking. It is a natural fit for Raging Stallion. I look forward to continuing the brand and building it into the strongest line of European films on the market.”

"High Octane is a perfect fit for Gunzblazing,” says Gunzblazing President Brian Randall. "The models are hot, the production values high and it hasn't been distributed on the web to anywhere near its full potential — which is fantastic news for our affiliates. It further strengthens our customer value offering. There aren't many other networks that a gay surfer can join and have access to what will be seven premium, original and exclusive content paysites covering multiple gay micro niches."

Ward also noted that Raging Stallion's purchase of High Octane gives the growing studio a beachhead in Europe.

“Some of the other studios have been purchasing movies from European producers — this gives us a whole production team that is our own,” he said. “We will be sending over our top exclusives to work in Europe. Indeed, European working vacations will become a standard part of our new model contracts. This also gives us the ability to sign some of the top European stars to exclusive contracts."
