Vanessa Leon/Angel Daisy
Date of Production: 7/21/2008 to 1/29/2010 (box cover); (7/21/2008, 7/26/2008, 8/18/2008, 1/23/2009, and 1/29/2010: the individual scenes as listed in the ending credits, in order of appearance)
Extras: The only real extras were the photogallery and some trailers, some spam and “positions menu” material included for those that care (a “special offer” link included too). I hated the forced commercials though, skipping them with my remote as needed.
Audio/Video Quality: Brand New Faces #34 was presented in the same 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color it was shot in by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainmentusing 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 1080/60 high definition a bit 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 though the company watermark will be bothersome to some 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 lead director at Vivid Entertainment in recent years able to revolutionize the company like no one else has. The result had been better showcasing of performers in lengthier scenes that provide more fuck for the buck than anything else in the company’s history, the company dispensing with contracts stars (for the most part) not altering this approach. 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 #34and 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. 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. The ladies this time included Kira Kane, Angel Daisy (better known these days as Vanessa Leon), Courtney Taylor, Jasmeen Le Fleur, and cover girl Layla Marie; only Vanessa and Courtney ending up making more than a few scenes since these were shot a few years back. Here’s a very brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Vanessa Leon/Angel Daisy, a 21 year old cutie with boobs bigger than her frame, was up first as she discussed making a video with the director, her partner being Alex Gonz. She followed the general formula in that she was interviewed at length, stripped, masturbated, and then did oral with vaginal and taste testing. She seemed into Alex and gave the appearance that she got off a time or two, her active riding helping make the scene stick out in my mind more than the facial of spunk landing all over her mug by his hand. The company website described the scene like this: “Angel is a 21-year-old Latina knockout with a million dollar body, face and attitude. The fact that she was nervous and embarrassed and had never sucked cock before made this a scorching scene. Angel comes at least 3x as Alex abuses her box with massive pumps in every position. He fucks her so hard that her squirting hit the camera lens. Angel is a natural and just scope out how she handles her first cum shot.” 7/21/2008
Scene Two: Kira Kane, a fetching brunette with pretty eyes and a skinny body, was up next with Jerry, the 19 year old proving to be quite nervous as she did all that was asked of her. Fans of all natural bodies will adore her and she was occasionally active at riding, the load of genetic juice landing on her face too. The website suggested this of the gal: “Kira is a 19-year-old nympho cutie who currently works for Starbucks and is nonstop horny while craving messy facials. After Jerry eats her out and bangs her a couple different ways he pounds the right spot and she cums loud on top. Cock-hungry Kira eagerly tastes her honey off of Jerry's dense drill. Her cream coats Jerry's prick but check out how happy she is when she gets loads on her sweet face.” 7/26/2008
Scene Three: Jasmeen Le Fleur, a brunette stripper with a very flexible body (look at her interview to see what I mean), was up next and she might have been short but she was also delightfully curvy too. Her ass was nicely plump and like the others, she was clean shaven, her husband encouraging her to do porn (according to her interview). She was sadly stuck working with Trent Tesoro and she had obvious implants but her open sexuality and playfulness was nice to watch. She was an active rider and did all the usual knob slobbing, her vaginal positions showing some serious potential for milking a nut. By the end of the scene when he unleashed his modest wad of population pudding onto her face, she appeared to love the attention she was given and I wished I saw more of her in other scenes. The website said this of the matter: “Jasmeen is a former gymnast who's also modeled lingerie, bikini and fitness attire in the past. She wants eventually direct artistic-type XXX in the future but has no qualms about down n' dirty and sweaty fucking like she did with Trent. Jasmeen cums loud constantly as Trent buries his bone balls deep inside. She even takes every inch of his cock down her mouth without gagging. After torrid banging, Brent gives her the facial she wants!” 8/18/2008
Scene Four: Layla Marie, the Southern Belle featured on the front cover, was another lean chick with a body built for speed over comfort. She lucked out and scored the mighty Evan Stone as her partner, the young lady brought into porn by Amy Jordan (also shot by Skow) but never seemed to make as big a splash as her friend. I liked her accent more than her crooked teeth and slightly odd look to her face (it wasn’t as prominent on the cover photo as when she was talking) but she was another one to have some fun with the action, doing oral and vaginal with the muscular stud before he beat off a large round of spunk to her mouth. She was the least polished female performer of the show though so that might enhance the flavor for you as the idea was to showcase newcomers. The website described it like this: “Layla is a 20-year-old honey from Tennessee whose pal, former BNFer Ami Jordan, helped her get into the biz. Noted cocksman Evan Stone shows his pussy eating technique and once Layla's eyes roll back her body quakes in a strong orgasm. Evan relentlessly hammers her pink while she rubs her clit to get hotter and wetter as her juices coat his thick cock. Watch how much Layla loves Evan's jizz down her throat.” 1/23/2009
Scene Five: Courtney Taylor, a lean blond Californian from Westlake Village, was up last with Mr. Pete. She came from the Westside of the township and apparently, all her friends knew of her sexual exploits, her career second only to Vanessa in terms of how many movies she made (though she had already made a name for herself as a solo webcam girl) and the diversity of companies she’s worked for. She was lean and had a quirky voice, the skinny lady very buoyant about what she was about to do. She was a natural when it came to the stripping and solo work, proving that she had seen plenty of pecker firsthand given the manner in which she inhaled Pete’s prick orally and vaginally once he warmed her up. She did get kind of obnoxiously loud as things progressed and she did not use the bed set as most of her peers in the series do but she sure liked his finger up her ass as he porked her pussy. The ending facial displayed her appreciation of splooge and she was glazed as needed, Skow encouraging her to reiterate the name of the series before things closed out to the credits. The website said this of the scene: “A 21 year-old California babe from Westlake Village, Courtney craves a cock pumping her sweet mouth, and a balls deep pounding in her juicy slit and insanely tight ass. Once she crams every inch of cock past her lips, Mr. Pete hammers her nonstop. In ever position when the banging gets harder she gets even louder. When Mr. Pete gives her one last thrust he blasts the milk she needs all over her full lips.” 1/29/2010
Summary: Brand New Faces #34 by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment earned a rating of Recommended or better given the quantity of footage on top of the quality of newcomer. 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 #34 certainly earned a place in my collection, even if none of them were true standout babes as in some of the previous volumes of the web-to-DVD series. Looking at the history of newcomer series over the years, from all the Ed Powers series to the numerous gonzo equivalent titles (Everhard, Silvera, Jordan, and many others all seem to offer at least a few such series worthy of your attention), to the masses of similar outings, I have appreciated that this series has offered up the newest ladies and offered a guarantee second to none that these were their first performances, no one else stepping up to the plate to do likewise so give it a look and encourage Skow to update the company website more regularly to provide fine fleshy fodder for our collective spank banks.
