Cast: Ariel Katz, Jerry, Lucy Lamay, Mischa, James Deen, Samantha Faye, John Strong, Chanel Preston, Nick Manning
Length: 218:39 minutes
Dates of Production: see scenes for air date
Extras: The only real extras were the photogallery, pop shot recap, trailers, and some spam but skipping the advertised “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 #45 was presented in the same 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color it was shot in by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment. The visuals and audio were both decent, the amount of lighting and limited camera movement helping capture the ladies at their best. The editing did not seem intrusive most of the time and I could hear the vocals just fine, some whispered dirty talk helping a few scenes to stand out from the pack. In all, the technical qualities of the production were largely the same as ever which is a good thing in most ways, the bulk of footage shot competently.
Body of Review: B. Skow had been the lead director at Vivid Entertainment for a few years before starting his own award winning company, venturing into all sorts of darker material for those who cared to follow. Before he left, Vivid stashed away a lot of works and his latest in for review is called Brand New Faces #45, this time using a few young ladies that actually went on to shoot more scenes (my favorite type of performer in the series since I get to see how much they progress). The ladies included the amazing Chanel Preston, perky Samantha Faye, Lucy Lamay, Ariel Katz, and a gal named Mischa; each allowed plenty of time to show off in their first scene. The premise of the series is simple in that Skow shot a lot of women in their first recorded sex scenes for the company website, the DVD series compiling the lengthy trysts where the starting interview allows fans to get to know the ladies, they then masturbate and have sex (usually with a man); the series even including a guarantee of your money 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: Ariel Katz, a lean girl next door with long hair, was up first in a muted red dress, walked around a contemporary bedroom rather than the usual studio. She was interviewed by the director who kept making her laugh, her boobs impressing him before he admired her juicy ass, a black thong nestled deep inside her ass crack as he coaxed her into answering questions before working with Jerry. Skow had her masturbate her nearly bald beaver, a few wisps of pubic hair observed before they moved to the living room for better lighting. Jerry kissed her ass and gobbled her gash, savoring her orally before some vaginal plowing led to her slobbing his knob briefly, eventually go back to add some hand to gland friction. It was a barebones basic scene with no chemistry though she seemed to have potential yet untapped, her “deer caught in the headlights” expression at times looking cute. She was an occasionally active vaginal rider and she drained his dragon for a facial before long, much of his sizable load hitting her tit. The company website described the scene like this: “This tall glass of water is Ariel Katz. What can we say, she's stunning and ready to fuck. Great combo. In fact she's 'stoked' to get her first taste of professional cock. Ariel swears with all her body parts that she's never fucked on film and we believe her. So sit back and enjoy watching this babe get initiated by Jerry into the lusty world of porn.” 11/1/2012
Scene Two: Lucy Lamay, a blond gal from Kansas with nice tits, was up next with a California surfer girl look, her alias being Alanna Anderson, the gal looking like she could be the daughter of Alana Evans. The 19 year old admitted her father knew about her pending porn career thanks to her FB account and family member discovering it, the gal following the formula before Jerry showed up. She had a nervous laughter caused as Skow razzed her a bit, the gal masturbating before engaging Jerry in some relatively passive vaginal sex. They gave each other head from time to time and her prominent tan line was interesting but there was again no connection between the couple and she looked like she wanted it to be over very early into the action. She milked his balls of sperm for the facial, the glazing of her mug. The website suggested this of the gal: “Our latest hottie Lucy Lamay is as excited to get fucked on film for the first time as we are to watch it! This all natural fuck kitten is a quick learner and takes all of what Jerry can dish out while pleading for more! So check out the trailer to see one of our hottest Brand New Faces ever! We guarantee you have never seen her before!” 12/1/2011
Scene Three: Mischa, a mousy brunette standing tall at 4’9”, looked way too young though she was 21 and about to turn 22 on “the 18th”, the gal talking a better game than showing the director though frankly, she looked barely legal to me. She was paired up with James Deen, sort of a surprise male talent given the usual level of mope deployed. Unlike others, she signed her agreement regarding this being her first scene, but she looked familiar and then claimed to be from Texas as a stripper. She hopped on the bed and showed her goodies, masturbating with a dildo and then taking on James. He was looking scruffy and warmed up well enough, guiding her down somewhat forcefully to blow him once he had gone down on her. She was clearly experienced with blowing a guy and while her vaginal penetration positions were very mixed in terms of how actively she rode, James was pretty good at getting her excited to go the extra mile in the scene. It ended when he beat off on her upper torso and face, the expression on her face not a happy one as one eye was shut due to splooge in the eye. The website said this of the matter: “Misha is the ultimate nympho spinner at 4'9. She's a Texan sexpot that gets off being twirled around when riding rod. James gets her to cum quick abusing her clit with his tongue and fingers. Misha's hot tight slit is nonstop wetness as he pounds her in doggie making her cum loud. James goes back to taste her trim before one last savage fucking. He slams her in missionary before blasting her tits and tummy.” 3/28/2011
Scene Four: Samantha Faye, a skinny gal with pretty eyes that looked like a hick version of a mainstream actress, the 21 year old year old lounging on a large white couch as Skow grilled her reasons for trying porn as a career (the gal featured on the cover). The contentious back and forth between them showing why the director stays behind the camera rather than rely on his improvisation skills to pay the bills. Their role playing aside, she mechanically followed the formula as the San Antonio native prepared to work with muscular John Strong, another male upgrade of sorts. She was more aggressive about giving head than he was but she was a mostly passive vaginal rider, a pronounced layer change (or something) during the scene requiring me to restart the DVD part way through the action. She was most active in the cowgirl variations though, finally putting some effort into her tryst before some slapping led to a hand assisted nutting in her mouth and on her face as she maintained her solid eye contact. The website described it like this: “Samantha Faye is the girl every guy wants living next door! Young, hot and will fuck anyone within a 1 block radius when she';s bored. By her own admission this girl doesn't drink, doesn't go out to clubs; she just likes to fuck! So come on inside and see how that experience translates into porn, for her first ever fuck on film.” 1/12/2012
Scene Five: Chanel Preston, a curvy hotty from Alaska who moved to Hawaii, was up last as she stood up to the director as bit, almost daring him to disagree with her. She claimed to have just turned 24 years old, the gal signing the certificate before the “full nude” stripper showed her implants and perky ass (that has since fleshed out really well). I had mixed feelings about her working with “dropping loads” male Nick Manning, the guy sometimes striking me as too over the top silly and other times like he’s having a good time. She was shaven clean and he was all over her orally, her own dirty talk far better than his tends to be though the riding was a bit uneven, Nick getting close to plastering her with his manly juices when he started kicking in his verbal assault. That was when she seemed to enjoy it more too, the scene seeming shorter than the others but her moves more practiced as she knelt for his “dropping loads” routine that blasted her tonsils and face. The website described it like this: “Tight stripper babe Chanel has a perfect set of 32Ds to match an unreal bubble ass. She loves extreme fucking by doing DPs in real life. Nick Manning is her stud who fingers and devours her tiny, tasty clit causing her fierce loud cums. Chanel then happily gags on his thick cock before getting rammed nonstop and begging for even more. Chanel proves she loves to swallow by getting her sweet face blasted before feasting on Nick’s goo.” 2/1/2010
Summary: Brand New Faces #45 by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment earned a rating of Rent It. Chanel Preston, one of the strongest existing performers, showed lots of potential here yet was a far cry from the sexual dynamo she has become since this was shot, Samantha Faye looked as cute as ever and was not half bad as a performer, and the other three ladies were as advertised in their first scenes as well, albeit not as memorable as the others mentioned. In short, Brand New Faces #45 continued showcasing newcomers as expected. Still, for Chanel Preston’s first scene alone you’ll want to peek in here, my long held belief being that fans would prefer compilations of top performers that started in the series over throwing some random ladies in a group but check it out to see for yourselves.
