Pacific Sun Reels In Tacklebox Productions

NORTHRIDGE, Calif. - With the assistance of Pumpkin Media, Pacific Sun Entertainment has landed an exclusive distribution deal with gay Britporn studio Tacklebox Productions. The deal is expected to bring both companies' products to the U.S. market in DVD form, as well as formatted for broadcast, video-on-demand and other new media.


Tacklebox, led by Moggy, is known in Europe for its "Fantasy Fucks" series. Titles in the series so far include Fantasy Fucks: Dreams Can Cum True, Fantasy Fucks 2: Masters and Servants and Fantasy Fucks 3: Dirty Professions. The line is produced by Pumpkin Media Chief Executive Officer Phil Barry and includes cameo appearances by his wife, glamour model Cathy Barry.


"In the U.K., Cathy Barry has a huge fan base including many thousands of gay men who love her for her larger-than-life personality and not just her larger-than-life breasts," said Pacific Sun CEO Pritham Sinha. "Dreams Can Cum True is the first adult film which features Cathy Barry where she does not get her clothes off and actually covers up her assets."


Moggy's vision for the "Fantasy Fucks" series is that it represent on video some popular gay wet dreams. In one title, a dentist gives his patient a thorough "drilling and filling"; in another, soldiers storm a garrison and overwhelm the enemy in more than one way.


Moggy said he is pleased with the distribution deal.


"This goes to show that the world is still looking for high-quality, hot content and not just someone with a camcorder," he noted. "We wanted to film gay porn through the eyes of a top-class production company [in order] to provide something different. We are proud to be working with Pumpkin Media and hope that this new business deal with Pacific Sun Entertainment will increase our profile in the United States."


Sinha said the new line, which is bareback, should perform well in the U.S. because of its British sensibilities. Each title was filmed in high-definition format, and the DVDs include close-ups and bonus features like behind-the-scenes documentaries and post-shoot shower sessions.


"We are glad to welcome Tacklebox Productions and Pumpkin Media to our family of producers," he said. "Pacific Sun remains strongly committed to safe sex, but is open to distribute all genres of XXX entertainment as long as the material is socially responsible."
