LOS ANGELES — Alexa Aimes and Dillion Harper are featured cameos in the upcoming independent short film, “Kimi Kabuki.”
The two porn stars are reportedly prominently showcased as part of a porn convention scene in the film. The convention set also achieved a boost of authenticity via set design assistance by Exxxotica.
"I would like to say a big thank you to all the crew for being amazing and giving me the experience of such a great mainstream set,” Harper said.
“I would do it over and over again," Aimes added, “It was amazing to see the level of detail that was put into this film. Stepping on set was like stepping directly into a real Exxxotica. I'm really excited and thankful to be a part of this project and can't wait to see the final project!”
“Kimi Kabuki” follows the story of devoted housewife Madeline, her husband and their faltering communication. When Madeline discovers her husband is attending an adult industry convention without her knowledge, she follows him to confront him about his deceit. But when Madeline's plans for a sincere conversation go terribly awry, a gentle act of kindness from a porn performer leads her to find solace in the last place she could have expected.
The story, according to the filmmaker, is less about the negative connotations of the porn industry, and instead broaches the topics of open communication, understanding and compassion between husband and wife.
“Alexa was fabulous. She absolutely nailed it and really sold the scene,” “Kimi Kabuk”i director Yoko Okumura said. “She had an unstoppable energy and flirtatious demeanor that was exactly what we needed for the story. Alexa also gave us a lot of hilarious improv moments as well, and she's been one of the editor's favorite scenes to cut.”
Of Harper, Okumura said, “Dillion was so sweet, and her presence really elevated the film's production value. She was such a gem to have on set — such a trooper, and always gracious.”
“Kimi Kabuki” is slated for completion in October.
