C.J. Asher Interviews Adam Christopher (Tarantino XXX), Adult Filmmaker

IMG_4401When you think of films by Quentin Tarantino, you usually think of stunning cinematography, epic violence and intriguing dialogue. Adult filmmaker Adam Christopher, known professionally as “Tarantino XXX,” is taking his favorite filmmaker Tarantino’s film style to a whole new level with his Tarantino-themed adult film parodies.

C.J. Asher – First of all, thank you for this interview! Tell me a little about yourself, Adam.

Adam Christopher – I’m Adam Christopher, mostly known in the porn biz as Tarantino XXX. I’m 35 years old, I’m from Denver, Colorado, I graduated from Cherry Creek High School in 1999. I attended The Art Institute of Colorado film school division in 2004, dropped out in 2005.

C.J. Asher – How did you first get into the adult film industry?

Adam Christopher – In 2010, I started a low budget horror movie site called Grindhouse Parody, after a friend suggested I do horror porn. Instead, I decided to join the adult industry by changing the name of my site to GrindhouseXXX.com. I saved up money, bought film equipment and started venturing off to Los Angeles from time to time for the next five years shooting and putting together the site. It eventually evolved into TarantinoXXX.com in 2014.

C.J. Asher – What influenced you to take the name Tarantino XXX? You’re clearly a huge fan of Quentin Tarantino, but why choose him as the focus of your adult work?

Adam Christopher – I needed a recognizable name to catch people’s attention in porn. Him being my favorite filmmaker – mainstream-wise – it was a no brainier. The reason I chose his name as the focus is because, like him, I like to take different genres mash them up and also wanted to bring back he cinematic aspect back into porn.

C.J. Asher – Have you met or interacted with Quentin Tarantino, and what does he think of your work?

Adam Christopher – I have never met him; however, last year two friends of mine who worked for Digital Playground were on a mainstream set with an actual art director who worked for Quentin Tarantino. She asked about me and, apparently, Quentin knows about me and has seen some of my stuff and liked it. He then requested I send him a package full of films to him. So I put together some DVDs and sent them to him, so in that big huge Hollywood home of his lies a box full my Tarantino XXX DVDs. I also had an brief interaction of type with him, a month ago I attended a screening of the film Grindhouse (Planet Terror/Death Proof) at the New Beverly Cinema in Hollywood (a theater Quentin owns) and the actual Tarantino showed up to the screening so we were both sitting in the same movie theater watching basically the movie that inspired me to join porn which is pretty cool.

C.J. Asher – Tell me about A Porn Apart, and what sets your production company apart from others in the adult industry.

Adam Christopher – I take the genres such as foot fetish and give them a Tarantino feel to them. I also do parodies mostly based on Tarantino’s work, but instead of just copying it, I take the source material and mostly his characters within his universe and mash them together in a Tarantino-type parody film.

C.J. Asher – You’ve done a number of porn parodies, such as Porn Fiction, Grindhouse XXX 2 (Machete XXX and Fuck Proof) and The Hatemen 8. What’s been your favorite parody video to make so far, and why was it so special for you?

Adam Christopher – By far it was the Hatemen 8, it was my first foray into a full length lesbian girl-girl movie. We got to play around with some cool cinematic ideas with settings – in particular, using a cabin setting and inside a movie theater – plus the different female characters and cast I got to use including Lily Cade and Lotus Lain. I came up with an idea to use all female Tarantino characters within his universe for this parody project which was cool.

C.J. Asher – What do you think is the great appeal of porn parodies these days?

Adam Christopher – Porn parodies have been around for a very long time, dating back to the 1980s. It always has been around and will continue, it just hit a huge appeal in the late 2000s with Axel Braun and Will Ryder leading the charge. And, even now today, with the mainstream appeal of Lee Roy Myers and Woodrocket.com, it always holds a piece in every geek, nerd, fans hearts because some just want to see their favorite pop culture character having sex they always fantasize about it.

C.J. Asher – Can you tell me one or two crazy stories or experiences you’ve had while working as an adult film actor?

Adam Christopher – One of the best experiences I’ve had was sitting down and interviewing two of my biggest idols in the biz, director/agent Jonathan Morgan and male performer Steven St. Croix. Just to be sitting next to those guys they’ve seen and done it all was such an honor and privilege for me. And the other crazy story/experience was my first AVN as a member of the industry in 2011. I got to walk the red carpet with my friend Sally Sparrow and the crew of Burning Angel it was so cool to be standing in line waiting for my photo to get taken and be interviewed by the press was such a unique chapter in my life that I will never forget.

C.J. Asher – How do you feel about various attempts at passing measures to make condom usage mandatory in adult films?

Adam Christopher – I’m all for pro-choice in this industry. What the (AIDS Healthcare Foundation) and Michael Weinstein are trying to do by dictating the rules and regulations for the adult industry is wrong. We should, like human beings, be given the choice to use condoms or not. They are violating our constitutional rights in my opinion.

IMG_5938C.J. Asher – What are your favorite industry-related events, such as EXXXOTICA, the Adult Entertainment Expo and others?

Adam Christopher – Every adult industry event is so much fun I enjoy them all. Anytime there’s an award show, industry party or whatever, I love when we can all get together in one room, mingle, talk, laugh, celebrate accomplishments, meet new people, etc. It’s such a fun experience for me and I love it every time every year, I know some people in the industry complain about it but I love it. I’m a big big fan of gatherings, I really am.

C.J. Asher – What advice would you give to someone who wants to become an adult film actor or actress?

Adam Christopher – My advice is save up money to buy your own film equipment, buy a domain name, start your own amateur porn website. Find a unique niche for yourself; don’t go for the obvious stuff, you see all over, come up with something different something you can market for fans and something that will get industry eyes to notice you. Any Joe Schmoe can start a “hey I’m fucking this girl in a hotel room” site… those are boring, come up with something that is weird and sexy.

C.J. Asher – Who would you LOVE to film a scene with that you haven’t with yet?

Adam Christopher – Top 10 in no particular order: Jessica Drake, Veronica Avluv, Cherie DeVille, Simone Sonay, Anikka Albright, AJ Applegate, Aaliyah Love, Ana Foxx, Dani Daniels, and Jasmine Jae.

C.J. Asher – What adult film projects, parody and otherwise, are you working on right now?

Adam Christopher – The Hatemen 8 full movie will be released in June 2016, I’m also working on a new site called Scrambled X which will feature dark story telling cinematic inspired by the VHS, laserdisc porn era of the 1990s that is coming soon, I’m also getting ready to film a documentary film about the making of a classic adult film from 1997 called Bad Wives – a porn film that mostly inspired me to be a director  where I will be interviewing some of the original cast, producers, and hopefully original director Paul Thomas for it. I also want to sit down with former AVN head Paul Fishbein and Vivid CEO Steven Hirsch for the documentary film also. The documentary will be seen exclusively thru Scrambled X’s website, which will lead into a crowdfunding project that I will launch for the remake version of Bad Wives which will be written and directed by me so I’m very excited about that.
