Film Director Chandra Gerson

Chandra Gerson started out in show biz doing extra work in front of the camera, which led to her taking acting classes at the famed Lee Strasberg acting school. However, Chandra soon found that her true passion in films, was working behind the camera. She subsequently founded her own production company, Kitnkat Productions, in 2009, and has since produced some award-willing shorts, as well as one feature length film, a 2015 psychological drama entitled Book of Choices, which will be shown at the Delhi Women's International Film Festival in India this October. She also produced a fun documentary on the 40th anniversary of Knott's Scary Farm, the horror attraction of the famous Knott's Berry Farm, where Chandra has been regular visitor for years.

Last month, Chandra attended the annual Marché du Film ("Film Market") in Cannes, where three of her short films were shown: Burning Distortion (2012), a story about a man's dark side coming to light, Salvation of One (2014), about a young man who gets out of the mob and wants to right his wrongs, and A Gracious War (2014), about a police detective who finds out he has much more in common with a suspect he's interrogating, than he thought. Hear more about her aforementioned works, as well as more about Chandra herself, in her recent interview with Idol Features. Above photo by Carrie Cavalier.

June 10, 2016 interview with Chandra Gerson

Nadia White

I first heard of Nadia White last year, when I was doing a piece on Bianca Allaine's then-recently announced comedy-horror film Zombinatrix. Nadia was listed in the cast when the film first hit IMDb, and that was reinforced by Bianca in her first video promo for the film. However, whatever agreement was made  for Nadia to appear in Zombinatrix, fell through months ago. Judging from Nadia's on-camera performances, in which she shows she's definitely not one to shy away from physically demanding scenes, in both her adult and horror films, it's Zombinatrix's loss.

Even though the Baltimore-area native is still active in the adult industry (doing strictly fetish films now, she tells me), Nadia has made the transition from "porn star" to actress. With titles like Milfs vs. Zombies, Radioactive Flesh Eating Foliage, and Return to Nuke 'Em High Volume 2 to her credits, she's been making quite a name for herself in the indie horror industry over the past year. She recently finished filming her scenes for Shawn Burkett's Don't Fuck in the Woods, and has a good list of upcoming films she'll be appearing in that are slated for release throughout this and next year.

Rachael Robbins - Behind the Scenes with Mike James

At my request, my friend, esteemed pinup photographer Mike James, once again delved into his photo archives to come up with some candid, behind-the-scenes shots of another one of the lovely ladies who's worked with him over the last several years.

Rachael Robbins, who was included in my first James Girls feature and a subsequent solo interview, has compiled a long and impressive modeling and acting resume that includes Playboy magazine to, more recently, her outstanding performance as the leader of the Van Houten sisters in Ken Del Vecchio's horror Bleeding Hearts. The above 2007 shot of Rachael relaxing while Mike was setting up for a shoot, as well as all of the following photos, are being published here for the first time, anywhere.
