MADNESS PICTURES SIGNS DAVID AARON CLARK TO DIRECT
VAN NUYS, Calif. — Madness Pictures has signed director and AVN Award-winning writer David Aaron Clark to its roster. Clark will direct and own his movies with Madness Pictures through his production company, Serious Mirror.
“I’m excited and pleased that a young, vital, truly up-and-coming company like Madness, headed by a director like Andre [Madness, owner of Madness Pictures], whose long resume proves he knows both what makes great porn and what makes quality film making, wants me on their team,” said Clark.
Clark’s work is known for its originality and production value, and features most of the top Asian female performers. Clark has over 30 titles to his credit as a director, was awarded with the AVN Award for Best Screenplay in 2002 for collaborating with Brad Armstrong on Euphoria, and
2004 for Best Ethnic-Themed Video — Asian for Asia Noir 2. He is a six-year veteran of the adult video business, and also served in editorial positions at Screw and SF Spectator, often writing as well for LFP.
“I’ve watched David’s progress of work and have been impressed with his style,” Madness said. “He recently contacted me to let me know he was ending a previous shooting contract, so we began to talk. I became interested with the idea of distributing David’s work because of the originality and expressions of his movies. His first release, Diary of a Mad Porn Director, gives the audience a gritty look at porn through David’s lens.”
Clark said he sees Madness Pictures as a motivated company, looking to push its way to the forefront of adult brand names and a refreshing relief from many of his prior experiences in, his own words, “fuckworld.”
His first title for Madness will be Diary of a Mad Porn Director, subtitled Saison D’enfer after the original title of one of 19th century French poet Arthur Rimbaud’s work, which translates as “A season in hell.”
The feature follows several months of Clark’s life when he lived in Canoga Park.
“Though I had the best roommate in the world, Brian Surewood, the San Fernando Valley is the ugliest and most culturally arid place I’ve ever lived,” he said. “Distracting myself with a constant and challenging parade of fascinating and lovely Asian porn sirens was the questionable method for my half-hearted attempt to keep some semblance of sanity.”
