Channel 1 Wraps 2 Fla. Features

LOS ANGELES — Gay production and distribution company Channel 1 Releasing has wrapped production on two features. “Slow Burn” and “Beach Ballin’” were shot in South Florida and directed by Chi Chi LaRue and Doug Jeffries, respectively.

“Slow Burn” toplines C1R exclusive Josh Vaughn and follows a format similar to LaRue’s 2007 poolside feature “Sun Soaked.”

“The film also features a sizzling cast of up-and-coming porn pups such as Felix Andrews, Billy Davidson, Shane Frost, Colby Knight, Rian Nash, Luke Riley and Jimmie Slater,” the studio said. Castmate Nick Donato will make his adult debut.

C1R described “Beach Ballin’” as “a delicious, sensual romp featuring scenes shot on the beaches of Ft. Lauderdale.”

Cast members were given handheld cameras to film each other in character as they romped in the surf.

Featured players include Brock Armstrong, Nick Cross, Zane Jacobs, Jared King, Revel Milan, Dominic Pacifico, Dallas Reeves and Kameron Scott.

The films were shot simultaneously and utilized an eight-room beachside mansion as a location, the studio said. Both are set for early spring release.

In related news, C1R will celebrate the grand opening of Chi Chi LaRue’s, the company’s first brick-and-mortar retail outlet, Thursday night in West Hollywood.
