VIVID STUDIO INSIDER FOR APRIL 15th, 2005

VIVID STUDIO INSIDER FOR APRIL 15th, 2005

MAJOR TERA PATRICK PROFILE IN VILLAGE

VOICE --- Vivid Girl Tera Patrick

is the subject of a major profile in the April

13th issue of New York City's weekly newspaper

Village Voice. Writer Grace Bastidas

reports. "Talking to Patrick in person is very

much like hanging out with a girlfriend. She's

candid, articulate, approachable, and quite smart."

Bastidas traces Tera's life from her childhood

in Montana, through her career as a nurse and

model, and to her entry into the adult business.

"The savvy businesswoman is currently in negotiations

for a book deal. She's kept a diary for the past

three years that has inspired this new challenge.

She's also working on a reality show Rockstar

Pornstar about her life with Seinfeld." And

The Voice noted that she has two new features,

Tera! Tera! Tera! And Reign of Tera

which Vivid Entertainment, is

distributing. "Although Patrick is primed to be

America's next porn sweetheart (after Jenna

Jameson), she hasn't lost sense of her

mission. 'Sex is where I'm at,' she says matter-of-factly.

Just don't tell her conservative Jewish neighbors.

They think she's a model."

VIVID AND JENNA SIGN NEW SEVEN-YEAR DEAL

---Vivid Entertainment

has signed a new seven-year exclusive contract

with Jenna Jameson. She'll remain

a Vivid Girl and Vivid will

continue to distribute all films made by her production

studio, ClubJenna. The new contract

extends the relationship through 2014, after the

current agreement expires in 2007. Vivid and ClubJenna

will jointly produce selective movies, and Vivid

will distribute movies produced by ClubJenna.

Says Vivid co-chairman Steven Hirsch:

"We are thrilled to be continuing our long-standing

affiliation with ClubJenna and with Jenna, whose

career has soared as she has become an incredibly

popular symbol of success in our industry." For

her part, Jenna says, "I couldn't be happier.

We feel we are at the top of our game right now

and it is terrific to know that we will be continuing

to work closely with the adult company that has

been at the top of its game for more than two

decades. Vivid sets the pace for leveraging its

internationally recognized brand and we are proud

to be a part of that success."

ROLLING STONE ON LIL JON'S VIVID SHOOT

---Rolling Stone profiles Crunk

king Lil Jon in its current issue,

noting that he is riding a new wave of success

and fan appreciation. Rolling Stone reports

on Lil Jon's upcoming Anger Management

tour, his new albums, and even a new mainstream

film he's working on called What? "'But

don't think this means Jon is cleaning up his

act," says Rolling Stone. "This month,

he and the Eastside Boyz will

release a video through porn production company

Vivid (home to Jenna Jameson),

called Lil Jon & the East Side Boyz

Vivid Vegas Party, with another

installment on the way. (Jon MC's the films and

is working on the scores, but does not star in

them.) 'We've never been squeaky-clean from the

jump,' he says, laughing. 'We've never been Disney

or Sesame Street, you know. You can listen to

the records and know: We're really street.'"

MERCEDEZ IN MAY PLAYBOY ---Vivid

Girl Mercedez appears on page 20 of the

May issue of Playboy

magazine, which carries a feature the pinup-style

photos of Richard Dean. "Most photographers have

tried and failed to re-create classic pinup art

(trust us, we've seen it all) but Richard

Dean is an exception," Playboy

reports. Dean reveals a secret about the making

of Vivid Gallery Collection,

telling Playboy that famous pinup artists

Vargas and Elvgren "would start by sketching a

naked model. They'd work at it until they had

a perfect figure, then they would paint the clothes

on. I take a photograph and add the clothes digitally."

Playboy adds that "to keep things interesting,

Dean's life models - Tera Patrick,

Savanna Samson and Mercedez

- are all porn stars from the Vivid Video

stable."
