Vivid Studio Insider for May 3, 2002Wednesday, May 7th, in Hollywood, California at Quixote Studios the world famous photographer David LaChapelle shot five stunning Vivid girls for Flaunt Magazine's June/July issue.
David LaChapelle is best known for his signature style, characterized by super-saturated colors, shocking poses and contexts in which he gets the likes of celebrities to appear. His images are commonly seen in publications like Rolling Stone and Vanity Fair, and his interest in the surreal is the gap he bridges with mainstream and porn.
Vivid super stars Jenna Jameson, Dasha, Briana Banks, and newer girls Autumn, and Kody sported Gucci, Dolce Gabbana, Prada, and Effendi for the 12-page spread. "I have wanted to shoot with David for a long time" said Jenna Jameson, "this is a dream come true."
The mergence of these two pop culture icons is only the beginning of what this represents.
Flaunt's July issue will be a special 'Tribute to Italy" highlighting all-Italian celebrities, fashion, art, architecture, design, commerce, and unique personalities and a cover adorned by Italian beauty and actress- Monica Bellucci.
Vivid Powers Streaming Video -- Forbes Magazine has a story in the current issue on how Internet video companies have "finally found a market willing to pay for their product." The article reveals that "Vivid, based in Los Angeles' San Fernando Valley, is the top seller of content" using a format developed by DivXNetworks, the San Diego-based creator of a formerly underground streaming-media technology. Says Forbes: "After several years of grandiose ambitions (and publicity), the producers of streaming media are trying to charge for content. But the dirty little secret is that few consumers are paying just for small and jerky images of ABC News' Peter Jennings and National Basketball Association stars on their desktops, as subscribers to RealNetworks' RealOne SuperPass get for just $10 a month. Many of them are more interested in" Vivid content.

San Fernando Valley Business Journal -- The San Fernando Valley Business Journal interviewed AVN senior editor Mark Kernes on April 29th and he was asked about Vivid Entertainment. Here's part of the Q&A from the article: Q: Vivid Entertainment is one company that has caught the attention of the mainstream business media. Why is it the exception so far? A: They're the shining example. Vivid was the first to sell its films to Playboy and Playboy is about as mainstream as you can get and still be sexual. That gave Vivid the impetus to say, "Yes, John Q. Consumer, we also have this product or this service available."
