Audio/Video Quality: Brand New Faces #28: Teen Edition #2 was presented in the same 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color it was shot in by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment using the standard definition MPEG-2 codec in 480 resolution. 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 1080i/60 high definition two years ago, though presented in the SD format. 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 their sexuality. The composition of the camera angles and lighting were almost always optimal, Skow seeing fit to try and enhance the look of the ladies at every turn as possible, the director editing the raw footage in a hands-off manner (which worked for me). The fleshtones were accurate too and the DVD mastering was well done (the bitrate hovering around 3.8 Mbps), making it a mixed bag in terms of visual quality; leaning towards above average though the company watermark will be bothersome to many out there. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English (in 256 Kbps with a 48 kHz sampling rate) offering with the vocals sounding flat and the music pretty decent. The aural qualities of the movie appeared to offer some separation and increased dynamic range, the vocals easily heard and mixed in with the ambient noises.

Body of Review: B. Skow has been the tour-de-force director at Vivid Entertainment in recent years able to revolutionize the company like no one else has during his tenor. The result has been better showcasing of contract performers in lengthier scenes that provide more fuck for the buck than anything else in the company’s history. The decision to branch out into web-to-DVD titles has also allowed the company to utilize his talents for a specialty series centering on all newcomers, not a single one having been in porn prior to the production date listed (the company even providing a written guarantee to that effect that few have questioned, those being proven wrong in their accusations). The latest volume of the show is Brand New Faces #28: Teen Edition #2 and while the scenes have seasoned on the company website dedicated to the series, I could not remember a single one of the ladies having been listed in a production with an earlier shooting date, the end result being fans should be happy with it, especially this being a specialty teen edition. This has been the only newcomer series hitting the double digits that I find consistently worth picking up, the show providing almost four hours of original material for your viewing pleasure. Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Jules Sterling, a bleach blond with a different look to her, was up first this time as a 19 year old testing the waters of porn. She wore a loose dress and hoped her family wouldn’t see this scene, the gal still wearing braces as she followed the formula with some tease, an interview, and solo action before jumping Alex Gonz in bed. Skow made her laugh to burn off some nervous energy, her ass looking pretty good as she showed it off in a black thong. The oral by both of them led to some modestly active vaginal, the gal actually doing a fair job in some anal positions as well. The scene ended with a vaginal creampie, Jules fishing his load of genetic juice out of her snatch to taste. The company website described the scene like this: “Happy New Year BNFers! We're starting off '09 with Jules, a 19-year-old kinky cutie who's already done interracial, foursomes and lesbian action in her private life! Alex drives Jules wild with pussy eating and rimming before she inhales his cock with ease. Jules shows her wild side as Alex fucks her tight ass in both mish and cowgirl. The best part is finding out where Alex shoots his loads! Don't miss out!”
Scene Two: Taylor Michelle, the cute 19 year old featured on the upper left hand corner of the front cover with a cock in her mouth, was up next as the lean sophomore college student followed the usual paces. She was skinny but unwilling to tell her boyfriend, her love of sex muted by how nervous she was (though she claimed it was excitement instead). Her implants looked a bit weird but at least she didn’t have some many blemishes as Jules in the previous scene, her need for college money seemingly driving her performance. She teased, did some solo, and then engaged studly Mick Blue where he rubbed her as they kissed before going down on her. They vaginally screwed in various positions and she did give him some head too, tasting her juices of his rod with some hand to gland action. Mick ended it by tossing out a big round of population pudding on her torso, Taylor rubbing it all into her skin before slobbing his knob one last time. The website suggested this of the gal: “Taylor is a 19-year-old college student from Santa Barbara looking to explore her wild side. Fucking guys that she doesn't even know is a major turn-on and something she craves constantly. Mick relentlessly pounds her drenched slot as her loud n' sexy grunts and groans fill the room. Taylor loves reverse cowgirl and that's where Mick crams her fiercest. When Mick erupts all over her trim stomach Taylor happily licks his log clean.”
Scene Three: Harley Vantress, a thick (for this series at least) cutie wearing a pink dress, was up next with Chris Johnson as a means to make money. She was nervous and tried to laugh it off, the five foot, one inch gal having some ink as well as razor burn on her freshly shorn pubes. She played with a black toy but admitted hating blowjobs, doing okay once Chris had warmed her up orally. Her blowjob was similar to many in porn where she used her hand to cover most of the rod as her mouth took the head inside, the faces she made amusing to say the least. She was most active during the cowgirl and doggy positions, her wet pussy making noises as she bounced on his pecker until she milked him dry of spunk, the wad of semen jerked off by his hand to her mouth. The website said this of the matter: “Harley is an 18-year-old from So. Cal. who's already fucked 10 guys. Her bubble ass and bouncy tits no doubt helped like crazy. Harley says she doesn't like BJs but drools over dick like the best knob polishers in the biz. Chris slaps his balls against her ass in forceful pumps that get her wetter and hornier. Her handfuls jiggle and flop steadily during his constant pounding. Harley cleans him off like a slutty babe should.”
Scene Four: Katie Coxx, the 19 year old brunette seen on the upper right hand corner of the front cover, was up next as she jumped into bed with moper Anthony Rosano after all the usual interviewing and solo work. She wanted the attention and sex from porn more than the money, her stylish black outfit seen on the cover looking good on her. She made about a half dozen other titles than this, second of this batch only to Jules (doing anal helps your career so Jules had the edge), her tits looking as nice as her ass. Anthony went down on her and she showed she was no stranger to blowing men, her initial positions active as her pussy absorbed his cock readily, a lot of taste testing leading to the ending facial he jerked onto her face. The website described it like this: “This 19-year-old Irish/Scottish mix from Tampa, Florida, has a sinfully natural bod with impressive 32B tits. She loves sucking cock and proves it while shoving every piece of Anthony's huge dick in her eager mouth. When she rides his rigid rod she does the splits for a scorching visual. Katie is hammered in every sweaty position before rewarding Anthony by....tune in now to check out how nasty she gets!”
Scene Five: Nikki Sky, the sexy 19 year old featured on the lower right hand corner of the cover, was up last this time, wearing a blue jean skirt so small her ass hung out as she walked. She had a funny baby talking lisp and claimed to be a stripper, her bubbly attitude a lot of fun. While she seemed a bit talkative, her ass made up for it, the junk in her trunk bouncing happily along as she showed off her body. She also shaved her pubes off, her tiny pussy still all pink and tight as she teased. Alex Gonz was her partner and he kept her mouth busy with a kiss and his cock though Nikki kept looking at the camera too much. She was an active vaginal rider and appeared to like the action, throating him and kneeling before him for the final nut of spew to land in her mouth by his hand before swallowing. The website said this of the scene: “Nikki is a 19-year-old from Sin City that's become best friends and part-time lovers with BNF babe Allyssa Hall. Allyssa is the only girl to ever make Nikki squirt plus they've also shared cocks to suck on! Alex's throbbing prick punishes her pink while her nasty talk makes things even hotter. Nikki's red-glowing ass cheeks are insanely hot while bucking and pumping his pole. Check out how cum-crazy Nikki really is!”
Summary: Brand New Faces #28: Teen Edition #2 by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment was a middle of the road effort for the series for me, but the large amounts of fuck for the buck didn’t hurt, the quality of the ladies mixed, and the manner in which most of them proved to be having an okay time earning a rating of Recommended. For me at least, the idea that Skow could cultivate newcomers into providing such typically solid performances is indicative of his skill as a director so Brand New Faces #28: Teen Edition #2 certainly earned a place in my collection. This was still a no brainer for anyone into seeing newcomers giving their first performances, Skow allowing them plenty of space to experiment and showcase why they should be in porn, a few of them clearly not cut out for it but others suggesting otherwise.
