Pornhub Collab with Art Primo

Pornhub Announces Limited Edition Spray Paint and Apparel Collaboration with Art Primo

Adult Entertainment Platform Debuts Collection with Creative Video Featuring Prominent Names from Pornhub’s Model Program

Pornhub, the premier online destination for adult entertainment, today announced the launch of its collaboration with independent art supply company, Art Primo, through a new video featuring well-known models from Pornhub’s Model Program. The Pornhub x Art Primo limited edition collection, designed by Dan Climan, features a spray paint can of the brand’s signature “Pornhub Orange,” as well as tote bags and apparel including a short-sleeve t-shirt, long-sleeve shirt and hoodie.

“Both graffiti and pornography invite the viewer to follow the artist on a voyage of self-expression and exploration, in the most non-conventional of ways and without apology.  Because of this, Pornhub was a natural choice for our first-ever crossover launch,” said Anne Greebich of Art Primo about the collaboration.

The video directed by Gogy Esparza takes us on an adrenaline-filled voyeuristic night throughout the darkest corners of New York City in follow-doc style featuring graffiti artists Goog, Karma, Easy, Nep, and Seo. In signature Esparza style, Gogy uses quick cuts and mashups of the artists tagging alleyways and abandoned walls to shots of fast cars and beautiful women showing the audience the unparalleled energy into this illusive world.

The video features models Chiara Charles, LAYA, Zoë Kestan, and Andrea Martinez alongside Pornhub ambassadors Asa Akira, Kira Noir, and popular names from Pornhub’s Model Program, including Janessa Brazil, Toya Tickles, Britney Amber, Autumn Falls, Abigail Mac, and Alexis Tae. 

This is the second time Esparza has collaborated with Pornhub; he most recently directed HEROTICA, a capsule collection and short film/look book in collaboration with design duo, NAMILIA. The collection was unveiled during New York Fashion Week in February of 2020 and featured an all-Asian cast of runway models and Pornhub models Marica Hase, Jade Kush and Asa Akira. 

Pornhub’s Art Primo collaboration is the latest in the company’s foray into fashion and retail. Building on the success of the collaboration with NAMILIA’s at NYFW, the designers Nan Li and Emilia Pfohl created a capsule collection in collaboration with the brand. In previous years, the company has worked with Hood by Air, a cult-favorite fashion brand designed by Shayne Oliver and Richardson, a popular streetwear brand. 

“Pornhub has become the standard and an instantly recognizable classic in itself. The shade used for the spray paint is iconic; this orange is undoubtedly Pornhub Orange, and we sought out to craft a unique new tool for anyone to foster creativity and self-expression. I really wanted to elevate this timelessness with the graphic design of the can. It’s quite minimal and, with everything being so flashy these days, I think the design will stand out for its simplicity,” said the designer, Dan Climan.

Thandie × Thandiwe

Thandiwe (Thandie) Newton is Reclaiming Her Name

After being miscredited as “Thandie” in her first project—a mistake that has continued for the rest of her career—actress Thandiwe Newton is insisting people use her whole name. All of her future films will be credited with her full name, Thandiwe, which means beloved in Shona.

“That’s my name. It’s always been my name. I’m taking back what’s mine,” Newton said in her May cover story for British Vogue.

Newton also spoke about her experiences with abuse in the film industry, which started when she was sexually abused by director John Duigan at the age of 16 while shooting her very first film, Flirting.

“There’s a moment where the ghost of me changed, you know, and it was then, it was 16. He derailed me from myself utterly. I was traumatized. It was a kind of PTSD for sure. I was so distraught and appalled that a director had abused a young actress, and that it was happening elsewhere, minors getting abused and how fucked up it was. I was basically waiting for someone to come along and say, ‘Well, what shall we do about this?’’’

Although Newton faced a great deal of backlash when she first came forward with her story of abuse, soon the #MeToo movement led to countless more women within Hollywood sharing their own stories of abuse and assault.

NF – CLOUDS (THE MIXTAPE)

NF RELEASES NEW PROJECT CLOUDS (THE MIXTAPE) TODAY.

SHARES MUSIC VIDEO FOR “STORY”, WATCH THE VIDEO HERE.

After a series of internet-busting moves and racking up over 60 million streams pre-release, chart-topping Michigan rapper NF unleashes his anxiously awaited new project CLOUDS (THE MIXTAPE) today. Listen to CLOUDS (THE MIXTAPE) via NF Real Music/Virgin Music HERE.

To celebrate the arrival of the project, he also shares the music video for the cinematic new single “STORY.” Co-produced and co-directed by NF and Patrick Tohill, the visual quite literally brings the song’s unbelievable drama to life without sparing its intensity. As his lyrics detail a particularly painful memory culminating in catastrophe, the metronomic keys give the beat raw tension as it underscores a harrowing armed robbery.

Watch it HERE.

NF set the stage for CLOUDS (THE MIXTAPE) with the title track “CLOUDS,” which has gathered over 17 million views on the music video. It notably trended as #1 on YouTube globally, notched his highest debut on the Billboard Hot 100 at #53, and surpassed over 55 million global streams.

The follow-up single “LOST” (feat. HOPSIN) crashed YouTube with its music video, peaking at #2 on trending and has over 21 million streams.

CLOUDS (THE MIXTAPE) finds parity between some of NF’s most technically dazzling rhymes and the apex of his vulnerable and confessional storytelling. On “THAT’S A JOKE,” he strings rap around an airy beat as the crack of a whip cuts through horns and he spits, “I’m not on your radar, then your radars broke, dont blame me for that yalls jokes fall flat.” Elsewhere, he devours the production with stop-and-start cadences on “TRUST” where he admits, ”Life I lives more like a sci-fi flick. The ride culminates on “PAID MY DUES.” He launches into breathless breakneck flows, punctuated by the declaration, “Im on a rampage.The game isn’t safe with NF on the prowl.

NF has quietly cemented himself as one of the most impactful artists in the world without ever compromising or changing who he is. The artist, director, and producer has eclipsed 18 billion streams, picked up over a dozen gold and platinum certifications, sold-out arenas, and regularly maintained a place in the “Top 500 Most Listened-To Artists on Spotify. He also logged two consecutive #1 debuts on the Billboard Top 200 with Perception [2017] and The Search [2019]. However, NF shows no signs of stopping or slowing down as he continues to leave a mark on the mainstream as arguably the underground’s biggest artist.

Lady of Guadalupe Feature Film

Lady of Guadalupe Film to Be Released in Spanish and English

First modern-day production of spiritual drama with a fresh take on a revered folklore and genre to be released throughout the US and Canada on April 13, 2021

International award-winning cast includes top film and telenovela stars: 

Guillermo Iván (Telemundo’s, Al Otro Lado del Muro), Eric da Silva (O Atentado, Valor da Vida), Paola Baldión (Portraits in A Sea of Lies), Huitzil Sol, Rudy Miera (Milagros), Norman Patrick Brown (The Thin Red Line), Kimberley Aria Peterson (The Long Short), Jesús Lloveras (Tercer Grado), and Glenn Craley. 

Click here to view the official trailer

VOD and DVD release of the feature-length film, Lady of Guadalupe from Director Pedro Brenner, Producer Robert Hymers and Pinnacle Entertainment on April 6. Following Galaxy Theaters’  December theatrical release across the U.S. and Mexico, Nova Vento Entertainment will be re-releasing the film into theaters across the U.S. beginning in April. Presented in both English and Spanish, the film depicts the revered religious and cultural icons (the Virgin of Guadalupe and Juan Diego) and is the first modern production of Juan Diego’s story. It will be available on all major cable and VOD platforms in the US and Canada and on DVD on April 13. 

Based on true events, Lady of Guadalupe is a moving religious discovery juxtaposing folklore and present day. Historically significant recreations are used to illustrate the origin of her prevalent and powerful symbolism of Mexican identity and faith. When a young and ambitious reporter (Guillermo Iván) is assigned an article on faith, he finds himself enmeshed in the legend of Juan Diego and Our Lady of Guadalupe. Skeptical of miracles and the importance of modern-day Christianity, the reporter’s investigation takes him from cynic to true believer as his personal limits are tested.

The international cast includes popular film and telenovela stars including, Guillermo Iván (Telemundo’s, Al Otro Lado del Muro ), Eric da Silva ( O Atentado, Valor da Vida ), Paola Baldión ( Portraits In A Sea Of Lies ), Huitzil Sol, Rudy Miera ( Milagros ), Norman Patrick Brown ( The Thin Red Line ), Kimberley Aria Peterson ( The Long Short ), Jesús Lloveras ( Tercer Grado ), and Glenn Craley.

The messages of love and hope from Lady of Guadalupe are timeless and relevant to everyone, no matter their religious beliefs.”

Director Pedro Brenner shares, “Although five centuries have come and gone since Juan Diego walked the earth, the legacy of hope created through the miracle story of Our Lady of Guadalupe remains the defining force of Latin culture to this day.”

Executive Producer Robert Hymers says, “The film is timely in that people need quality entertainment that promotes hope, love and peace during these trying times. This culturally significant film celebrates a seminal time in Latinx history. Juan Diego’s experience is more relevant now than ever before.” 

Eden Bryant, Co-Owner of Nova Vento Entertainment adds, ” Lady of Guadalupe is a moving film speaking to the importance of faith throughout history, a wonderful addition to the catalogue we offer here at Nova Vento Entertainment. We feel movie goers will enjoy this blend of history entwined with John’s (Guillermo Iván) personal discovery of faith.”

Oscars 2021, Only Kind of White

By Dana Feeney

The nominations for the 2021 Oscars have finally been announced. In June 2020 it was announced that the awards show would be postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The Oscars were originally scheduled for February 21 but they will now be on April 25. The award show is run by the Academy of Motion Pictures, which was founded in the 1930s. This is the third time in Oscar’s history that the show has been postponed: the first time was in 1968 after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the second in 1981 due to an assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan.

Despite the Coronavirus pandemic, there are many incredible films that have been created in the past year. This is the first time in Oscars history that the Academy will allow streaming films meaning films that did not have a box office debut. According to the Academy announcement last April, it will be a one time exception made to the eligibility rules due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting theater closures. This makes films like 2021 awards season powerhouse Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, which exclusively premiered on Amazon Prime Video, eligible for award nominations.

Landmarks in Diversity

This is the first time in the Academy’s history that two women have been nominated for Best Director; Chloé Zhao for “Nomadland” and Emerald Fennell for “Promising Young Woman.”  Zhao is the first woman of color to be nominated for Best Director at the Oscars. She is also the first woman to ever receive four nominations in one year. 

This is the first time that the Best Actor category is not majority white. Steven Yeun was the first Asian American to be nominated for Best Actor for his role in “Minari“. Also nominated for Best Actor, Riz Ahmed is the first person of Pakistani descent and the first Muslim person ever nominated for an acting Oscar for his performance in “Sound of Metal.” They are nominated alongside Chadwick Boseman for “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” Anthony Hopkins for “The Father” and Gary Oldman for “Mank.” Chadwick Boseman is the first black actor to be nominated for a posthumous Oscar and may be the first black actor to win a posthumous Oscar considering his Golden Globes win

Many black filmmakers and professionals made history this year including Mia Neal and Jamika Wilson, who are the first Black women nominated for best makeup and hairstyling for their work on “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.” Additionally, “Judas and the Black Messiah” is the first movie with an all-Black producing team, Shaka King, Charles D. King and Ryan Coogler, to be nominated for best picture. Daniel Kaluuya and LaKeith Stanfield’s acting nominations for “Judas and the Black Messiah” marks the first time two Black actors from the same film were nominated. “Judas and the Black Messiah” now holds the record for most Black nominees ever from the same film with 10 nominations compared to the past record which was “The Color Purple” with 7 nominations.

The best actress nominees include Viola Davis for “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” who is now the most nominated Black actress ever and Andra Day for her performance in “The United States vs. Billie Holiday.” The best supporting actor nominees include Daniel Kaluuya for “Judas and the Black Messiah”, Leslie Odom Jr. for “One Night in Miami…” and LaKeith Stanfield for “Judas and the Black Messiah.” Additionally, Yuh-Jung Youn, who is nominated for Best Supporting Actress for “Minari”, is the first Korean person ever nominated for an acting Oscar.

As expected, the nominations for the Oscars have many familiar titles from the Golden Globes nominations. You can read more about this year’s Golden Globes here. It’ll be interesting to see how the Oscars winners compare to the Golden Globes winners considering last year’s parallel with Parasite’s Oscars win for Best Picture versus it’s Golden Globes snub.

This year’s nominations are as diverse as the Oscars have ever been, though the bar still is on the floor considering the nominees are still predominantly old, white, and male. In 2020 the Oscars earned the hastag, #OscarsSoWhite so The influx of recognition for minorities is significant in comparison. For reference last year the only non-white person nominated was Cynthia Erivo, who was nominated for Best Actress. 

The Academy is working on improving their organization and have increased the number of female identifying members from 25% in 2015 to 33% in 2020, and increased members from racial and ethnic minorities, from 10% in 2015 to 19% in 2020. Considering the significant lack of diversity and recognition in categories like Best Picture and the lack of representation for Latinx individuals almost entirely, the Academy still has a way to go til its awards actually recognize and represent the diversity of the film community. 

Full List of 2021 Oscar Nominations

Similar to college basketball’s March Madness brackets, we highly recommend making Oscars ballots. It’s a super fun way to engage in awards shows which tend to be pretty monotonous and motivates people to actually watch the nominated films.

Idris Elba × HarperCollins

Iconic and multi-award-winning actor, musician, filmmaker, and activist Idris Elba has signed a global multi-book deal with HarperCollins to publish a range of children’s books launching in 2022.

In a major UK/US co-publication deal, world rights were acquired by Ann-Janine Murtagh, Executive Publisher, HCCB UK, and Suzanne Murphy, President, and Publisher, HCCB US, from Crystal Mahey-Morgan at OWN IT! Entertainment Ltd.

Publishing will include picture books and fiction featuring a character and world imagined and developed by Idris and his writing partner Robyn Charteris, who has written numerous live-action drama, pre-school and animation programs for BBC, Channel 4, the Jim Henson Company, and Endemol as well as educational theatre for schools. Idris Elba said, “I feel privileged to have the opportunity to bring stories inspired by my daughter to life with my incredible partner Robyn Charteris, and the powerhouse team at HarperCollins.”

Executive Publisher HCCB UK, Ann-Janine Murtagh said, “Idris Elba is one of the most iconic and multi-talented creatives of his generation and I am delighted that he is joining the HarperCollins Children’s Books list. From the outset, Idris had a very clear vision of the characters and stories he has imagined and is passionate about creating books that will appeal to all children. Robyn Charteris has a fantastic track record in writing for children, working with some of the biggest producers of children’s entertainment, and I am hugely excited to also welcome her to the world of children’s books. I feel privileged that Idris has entrusted us to bring his stories to life and I cannot wait to share them with children across the globe.”

President and Publisher HCCB US, Suzanne Murphy said, “Idris Elba is a creative force, who has many wonderful stories to tell. We are honored to be working with him and with Robyn Charteris to bring Idris’s rich and imaginative storytelling to the world of children’s books, and we are thrilled to welcome them to the HarperCollins family.”

IDRIS ELBA

Golden Globe and SAG winning Idris Elba captivates audiences as an actor, producer, and director, and continually secures his position as the one to watch in Hollywood. He is the first actor to receive dual SAG awards in one evening.

Idris’s career skyrocketed on the small screen in some of the UK’s top-rated shows. Soon after, he landed the role of Stringer Bell in HBO’s critically acclaimed series The Wire (NAACP Image Award nomination). In 2010, Idris landed the title role on the BBC mini-series Luther, which earned him a Golden Globe, SAG Award, and four Emmy nominations. In 2005, he began his film career; his credits include American Gangster (Golden Globe nomination), Mandela: The Long Walk to Freedom (Golden Globe nomination), Beasts of No Nation (SAG Award, Golden Globe nomination), and the Oscar-nominated film Molly’s Game.  He can be seen this April in the Netflix film Concrete Cowboy, which he also produced, and this summer will be starring in The Suicide Squad 2.  Other upcoming films include The Harder They Fall and Three Thousand Years of Longing.

Behind the camera, Idris made his feature-film directorial debut at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival with Yardie. In 2013, he founded his production company, Green Door Pictures, to champion diversity of thought. With Green Door, Idris released the documentary Mandela, My Dad and Me, produced the TV mini-series Guerrilla for Showtime, and created, produced, and appears in the Sky comedy series In the Long Run. He also created, produced, and starred in the Netflix comedy series Turn Up Charlie.

ROBYN CHARTERIS

Q×A With Griffin Matthews

By Justin Lyons

360 Magazine had the opportunity to sit down with actor, Griffin Matthews, to discuss his successful career. Matthews has been able to work on shows such as Dear White People, Ballers and The Flight Attendantas well as co-writing a successful musical. We were able to discuss his future career plans as well as his activism in the community.

Among acting, writing, directing and other creative positions, which one do you like the best, and which one allows you to best express your own creativity?

I love acting. I love writing. But I ultimately think I’m a director through and through. The responsibility of guiding the entire vision is so exciting to me. It’s such an honor when I get to direct because every story is a little baby that needs to be nurtured properly and guided along her way. And guess what? I’m such a dad. 

How has working with streaming services like Netflix and HBO Max changed the way you address your audience?

When you work on Netflix or HBO you get to really find your unedited voice. You get to be risky, controversial, imperfect, fabulous, complicated, political…I’ve been so lucky to get to work on Dear White People, Ballers and The Flight Attendant because I always felt like I could fire from all cylinders on day one. I did not need to ask for permission. I got to bring my entire self to each role. I got to curse. And kiss boys. And wear g-strings. And travel the world.

How do you use your experience acting in productions like The Flight Attendant to inform and influence your ideas on the stage?

I will always go back to the theater. I’m a theater kid. It’s where I honed my talent. So every experience that I have, I think about how I will translate that to the stage. I was lucky enough to travel the world and meet incredible people and see exotic places while we were shooting The Flight Attendant. I spent afternoons alone rummaging through the Bangkok market and got lost in the streets of Rome. I made friends with strangers and made peace with being a grown man and also homesick. As a writer, I’m a sponge. I soak up life and then look for an opportunity to let the water run out all over the stage.

How do you approach the assembly of a theatre show differently from how you approach the direction of a concert?

I approach concerts the exact same way that I approach theater. When I directed Shoshana Bean and Cynthia Erivo’s holiday concert at The Apollo, we had endless conversations about story and themes and vulnerability. All of those things make for an exciting night in the theater! I think a lot of concert directors only think about pyrotechnics, but I like to think about the heart of the performers. The message. The mission. And let all of those things spill out…and of course, we add some pyrotechnics, too!

How does your activism influence the projects you choose to be involved in or choose to create yourself?

Activism is such a sexy word these days. It seems like everyone claims to be. For me, my personal pledge is to be an activist when everyone’s looking, but more importantly when no one’s looking. That pledge always checks my motives and my ego as I navigate projects and stories that I want to be a part of it. Every time I sign on to a project, I bring my whole self, my whole truth, the parts that are great and the parts that are ugly. That’s what I’ve learned running a nonprofit for over 15 years. So much of the work is tough. It’s messy. But it’s real.

What are you most excited about with your career in the near future?

I’m currently developing a musical series with Ester Dean that will center black queer voices. It’s really exciting because I’m a fan of Ester and her work (Pitch Perfect, songwriter of Katy Perry’s “Firework” and Rihanna’s “Rude Boy”). She’s broken many ceilings in this industry as a songwriter, actor, musician, and host. We both want to create a show where young people (who look like Ester and I) will see their truths accurately and joyfully reflected on screen. I’m also directing a film called The Amish Project by a playwright named Jessica Dickey. When I tell people that I’m working on it, it can raise eyebrows because people don’t often hear about black directors working on pieces that don’t center black narratives. But here’s the thing: black directors want to direct EVERYTHING. And we can. And we will. And I’m excited to finally get my shot!

What is a creative role you haven’t taken up that you’d like to at some point in your career?

I really want to direct for TV. For some reason, the thought scares the hell out of me! There’s so much to manage: logistics, people, locations, safety, technology, performances, but I’m fascinated by it. It’s time for me to tackle that fear and get behind the camera ASAP. 

James Marcus Haney plans to release his debut photo book – FANATICS

James Marcus Haney, the LA based photographer and director of the acclaimed music documentary “No Cameras Allowed,” announces the release of his first photo book, “FANATICS.”

WATCH A TRAILER FOR THE BOOK HERE

The book is available for pre-order today via https://stop-and-fix.com/.

Haney pulls together photographs of fans from his time touring with Coldplay, Elton John, and Mumford & Sons, alongside the countless festivals and shows he’s been to across the world. Capturing the spirit and sheer elation of witnessing live music with friends, the book features imagery from concerts in 35 different countries, spanning the decade of 2010-2020.

Accompanying these images are stories and testimonials from musicians Haney has toured alongside, including Chris Martin of Coldplay, Alex Ebert of Edward Sharpe, Maggie Rogers, Lars Ulrich from Metallica, Marcus Mumford of Mumford & Sons, Albert Hammond JR of The Strokes and many more, all talking about the importance of fans and anecdotes and memories of their own as fans themselves. The book opens with a foreword penned by Elton John, who Haney has also been out on the road with.

Explaining the inspiration behind the book, Haney recalls, “Back when I was in college, I couldn’t afford to go to music festivals so I would sneak into them with my friends. Often, I used a borrowed camera from school and posed as a press photographer. I filmed all the bands I loved and used the guise of a fake press pass to get as close to the stage as possible. After a few festivals, I cut together a short documentary of my friends and I sneaking into Coachella and Bonnaroo. At another show, I handed a roadie a burnt DVD copy of my short doc, who then passed it onto the band he was teching for, Mumford & Sons. Soon, I found myself on an old-school vintage train chugging across America with Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, and Old Crow Medicine Show as part of the Railroad Revival Tour.”

“My passion for touring came at a cost though: as my time on the road coincided with my final exams at film school. I forfeited a college degree but made some of the best friends of my life and embarked on a career adventure that I could never have dreamed of. Through touring the world with artists like Mumford & Sons, Elton John, and Coldplay, I was able to immerse into all sorts of cultures and musical worlds and all sorts of wild crowds and fans. I found myself taking photos of fans everywhere – there was something so captivating about watching people completely lost in the music, witnessing that spiritual experience.”

This book is a culmination of a decade of touring the world and the truckload of film negatives that have amassed in that time. It captures the emotions, fashions, and faces of the 2010 decade through live music. And it is only now, from the depths of a pandemic, do these photographs remind us of a time, so recent yet so different, and represent the ultimate experience to look forward to again.

Words on FANATICS by Elton John:

“FANATICS is a book that celebrates that dedication, that music fan’s rite of passage, what you might call the magical festival spirit. It’s partly the sense that you can do whatever you want – get drunk, get high, have sex, whatever – at least for a weekend. And it’s partly that the one thing that’s bonding everyone together at a festival is the love of music. You can see that spirit, that common humanity, in the photos in this book.

Marcus has captured that indomitable festival spirit brilliantly through these photographs. With his trusted camera in hand, he’s the ultimate fly on the wall, or the fly on the canvas of the tent. He seizes these moments, almost like the invisible man, catching people in every imaginable state – in rapture and in decay, the ecstasy and the agony.”
