Cast: Taylor Jones, Sascha, Makali Chanel, Voodoo, Ruby Rider, Donny Long, Courtney James
Makali Chanel had a fine ass!
Length: 217:32 minutes
Date of Production: 10/9/2007
Extras: After starting off with heaps of spam (with cute Sunny Leone hawking the company’s stuff), the rest of the extras took on a new light. There were not many of them, a handful of trailers and more spam, but the length of the scenes largely made up for it.
Ruby Rider was worth riding too.
Audio/Video Quality: Brand New Faces was presented in the same 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color it was shot in by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment. For those unfamiliar with his background, suffice it to say that his experience outside of porn is superior to many inside the industry and it shows up in his movies, including this one as shot in HD, though presented in the SD format (for now) as shot in 1080i to provide a lot of resolution supporting some of the effects (making it look more like a real movie than just a porno). The lighting was well handled and this added to the pleasure of watching the gals in play as the lengthy scenes gave them enough freedom to explore what was advertised as their first scenes (with a money back guarantee). The composition of the camera angles and lighting were almost always optimal this time, Skow seeing fit to try and enhance the look of the ladies at every turn as possible. The fleshtones were accurate this time and the DVD mastering was well done (if in a bitrate hovering around 4 Mbps), making it a mixed bag in terms of visual quality; leaning towards above average. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English (in 192 Kbps) offering with the vocals sounding flat and the music pretty decent. For some reason, the levels were about the same as usual but aside from the added background noise, the dynamic range was average and the separation of the vocal track nonexistent.
Perhaps the cutest one of all; Courtney James.

Body of Review: B. Skow has been one of the driving forces at Vivid Entertainment in terms of providing good looking porn in recent years; typically bringing something unique to the mix as he enhanced the performances of the ladies he shot for the company under so many sets of circumstances. His latest release is a bit different in that it was a series of lengthy scenes called Brand New Faces; a movie dedicated to showcasing four lovely young ladies in their first scenes for porn. The porn industry is replete with gals claiming to be in their first scenes ever but the catch this time was the cover promising a “100% Money-Back Guarantee” that these were the first times the ladies were on film. Be that as it may, the cover also promised that the scenes were candid and given my experience with newcomers, I was hoping Skow could pull a rabbit out of a hat and also make them award winning performances. If you’re still interested, here’s a quick glimpse into the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Taylor Jones, the cute blonde seen on the lower left hand corner of the cover, was up first in a scene shot on 9/27/2007 with her 34B bra size. She and Sascha couldn’t keep their hands off one another but Skow pried them apart (almost resorting to tossing a bucket of cold water on them) so he could get plenty of tease footage of her on the couch along with some interview footage of the Baton Rouge, LA native. Fans of all natural ladies will find her appealing and she had enough raw edges to enhance the experience with enough experience to enhance the sexual heat she displayed; even after the masturbation action. By the time Sascha was back in the picture, she moved to a bed where he went down on her (Taylor looking happy at his efforts), spending a lot more time than he usually does with a gal. Taylor then maneuvered into a 69 where she undid his pants to wrap her lips around his cock and blow him. It wasn’t a great blowjob but it got him ready for the pussy poking penetration where he slowly banged her puffy lips. He did most of the work (as expected of a newcomer gal, she was not into her groove as much as an experienced performer) but he looked like she was enjoying the action more than a little bit as he stretched her out so completely. He played with her ass a little after she did some PTM too but she denied his entrance and the sex ended with a vaginal creampie (a realistic one at that). I prefer seasoned gals that are more energetic but for a newcomer, she displayed a lot of potential.
Scene Two: Makali Chanel, the hot brunette from Miami Beach Florida seen on the lower right hand corner of the front cover, was up next in a scene shot back on 10/2/2007. She had a stripper next door look to her and a nice set of curves, her 36C titties less important to me than her curvy ass. She followed the same basic formula that Taylor did with some lengthy tease, interview footage, and then some solo work before being joined by Voodoo. He spent some time revving her engine up with oral, taking time on her breasts before going south of the border on her coochy. She was shaved and ready to go, giving me the impression that she was another with extensive off screen experience but limited work in front of a camera (at least professionally). She was more aggressively playful though and the dynamic reminded me of a stripper looking to up her game a bit, her knob slobbing skills very nicely used to get Voodoo rock hard. The hand to gland approach she used in conjunction with her eye contact and mouth watering oral added to the fun as well; resulting in the couple increasing the tempo as she caused him to pop a nut in her mouth. The fun wasn’t over yet though as she continued to provide some post coital sucking, moving to a vaginal penetration bit on the bed after that. As they grew acclimated to one another, she got friskier than ever, actively riding his cock when on top of him; the sweat beading up on them both. She verbally coaxed him and he responded well to this new porn princess, Makali blowing him to completion where he dropped a load of population pudding on her face and swallowed what hit her mouth.
Scene Three: Ruby Rider, a 20 year old blond seen on the upper left hand corner of the front cover, was up next in a scene shot on 9/24/2007, with Donny Long as her partner. There has been some discussion about this pair online but judging from the scene itself, they seemed to get along fine after she followed the same basic formula. Her thick hips enhanced her look for me more than her smallish 34B rack, Skow teaching her how to effectively masturbate on camera as she playfully complied. Her tight pussy was sweet looking too as she stuck her finger in to begin making it wet. She even used a vibrator to masturbate with, tasting it before moving to the bed to work with Donny. He took his time with her instead of rushing like he usually does; Ruby pressing her hips up against his hand as he struck a positive nerve on her. They moved into a 69 position after that and after some face sitting on him, they took time for a proper boning. She was active from the beginning and even though they seemed to have limited chemistry together (not to mention no rhythm with each other), she was wet enough to cover the camera lens with her juices (not piss on it as others do). They performed in numerous positions before some PTM and the ending facial; Donny glazing her well enough that I thought he must have taken a month off to accomplish the task.
Scene Four: Courtney James, the fresh young face seen on the upper right hand corner of the cover from Blythewod SC, was up last and I was surprised that the movie had already gone on for almost 2 hours and 45 minutes. She claimed to be 18 years old and have 34C tits, the age looking about right as she reminded me of a young version of Cheyenne as she followed the formula. The lucky guy this time was again Sascha and she had the slightly nervous anticipation of a newcomer. The other gals all appeared to be more experienced and older but Courtney seemed to be the freshest peach of the patch, combined with her open sexuality making her another gal to keep an eye out for in the future. The tease, interview, solo, and partner entry went without a hitch this time too; the couple taking their time to get to know each other better orally at first. She concentrated her oral on his head, wrapping her lips around his cock as she worked his shaft over with her hand. She was not as active a rider as most of the others in the movie but this only gives her room to grow as a performer; her ass stretched by his fingers in what could have been a first anal too. She grunted and groaned a lot during the scene but I did get the impression that she was new to porn and that made it more fun to watch for the kind of movie this was meant to be; showcasing newcomers at work rather than display an array of cunning stunts busting loose. Sascha popped a load into her mouth and she spit it out on her titties to massage it in; not having much to swallow as Skow asked of her.
Summary: Brand New Faces by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment was worth a rating of Recommended to me for all the action, the new faces, and the technical handling of the scenes but fans of brand new gals will think it was a “must have” since the ladies looked and performed their roles so well. I can’t definitively state that none of them have shot a professional scene before but unlike so many titles that Vivid sits on for years as part of their marketing approach, Brand New Faces was rushed right to the pressing plant to jump on the newness factor (something other companies seem to have embraced in the past as many of you like to see “firsts”, real or imagined). Whatever the reality of the marketing claim though, all four of the cuties were breaths of fresh air and deserve some accolades for providing enough fuck for the buck, strokability, and replay value to make this a keeper for your collection.
