Marco Banderas Shoots First for Mercenary

CANOGA PARK, Calif. - Performer-director Marco Banderas makes his directorial debut for Mercenary Pictures in the newly-released The Darkside of Marco Banderas.

“I’m very happy to be working with Mercenary and Lex,” said Banderas of studio owner Lexington Steele.

“I think Mercenary is the best company for me to work with because they do real porn.”

Banderas, who recently signed a deal to direct several titles for the company, said he was especially pleased with the work of starlet Gia Paloma in the title.

“Gia has a great body and ass and loves to have sex on camera,” he said.

“She always gives a great scene and does everything I need from her.”

The title also features Annette Schwartz, Lacey Duvalle, Ice LaFox and Mika Tan along with John Strong, Jerry, Steele himself and Banderas.

“Marco’s always impressed me as one of the hardest working men in the industry who consistently delivers some of the best scenes in the gonzo arena,” Steele said.

“He showed me a sample of his work behind the camera and I immediately made him an offer to direct for Mercenary… Marco’s experimented with some familiar angles fans of gonzo will be used and mixes it with POV shots. It’s something new that brings the best of POV and gonzo shooting together.”

For Banderas, working behind the camera is a natural progression for him, having gotten his start in live adult shows in Barcelona.

“(Working live)… was a good way to learn to perform – you need to be hard pop all to the beat of music in front of about 200 people, three times a day,” he said.

“I want to do features and what I’d like to do is direct and perform in The True Legend of Zorro. It’s just an idea.”

Meanwhile, Banderas is completing work his next release for Mercenary, Culos Gigantes, with Katja Kassin and Luscious Lopez.The company’s next release is Climax TV #3, with Staci Thorn and Harmony, set for release in November.
