PRAGUE — Last weekend BelAmi celebrated 20 years as a major game player in all-male entertainment with an anniversary bash in Prague, which has become the studio’s homebase.
More than 100 of the industry’s top executives and models attended the party to celebrate the studio’s role in gay adult history and GDuroy, BelAmi's founder and owner.
A cache of 20-plus BelAmi models were in attendance, including Lukas Ridgeston, Jack Harrer, Johan Paulik, Kevin Warhol, Phillipe Gaudin, Brandon Manilow, Josh Elliot and Luke Hamill. Studio heads Tim Valenti of NakedSword, Jake Jaxson of CockyBoys and Italian filmmaker Lucas Kazan also graced the guest list.
“Celebrating 20 years as a company, and undoubtedly stronger than ever, is a testament to the longevity of the BelAmi brand and the quality of the films being produced still to this day,” a BelAmi rep told XBIZ.
The studio also flew several lucky members randomly selected from around the U.S. and Europe for an all-expense paid trip to the party.
In October, BelAmi is commemorating 20 years in the biz with special anniversary programming that will include comeback scenes starring Ridgeston, who hasn’t stepped in front of the camera since 2005.
Information about upcoming programming and an impending website update will be releasing soon, the BelAmi rep said.
