Director B. Skow Departs Vivid Video
Adult entertainment director B. Skow is cordially parting ways with Vivid Entertainment. After a relationship spanning almost 20 years, the award-winning director is eager to branch out and begin directing projects on his own terms. The launch of his new studio, Skow Digital, will allow B. Skow full creative control and ownership over his future projects, from story-driven features to gonzo, vignettes, and niche porn.
“My first time ever on a porn set was 20 years ago when I caught a glimpse of Janine and Julia Ann shooting a box cover for Vivid,” states B. Skow. “From that moment, I was hooked. I am eternally thankful to Vivid for helping me grow in my career. I greatly appreciate all the knowledge and experience I gained.”
Originally a renowned photographer for popular celebrity and adult magazines, as well as Vivid, B. Skow began directing adult movies for the famed studio in 2005. Over the years, B. Skow has earned an impressively diverse number of award nominations from AVN and XBIZ, including Best Director and Best Screenplay, as well as noms in categories including blockbuster features, amateur, gonzo, parodies, and vignettes. AVN has presented B. Skow’s movies with awards for Best Three-Way Sex Scene, Best Celebrity Sex Tape, Best Pro-Am Series, and Best Pro-Am Release.
AVN founder Paul Fishbein praised B. Skow in his 5-star review of the feature blockbuster “The Condemned.” Fishbein wrote, “An epic adult movie with a social and political conscience…A modern classic that should stand the test of time.”
“Sometimes a change is needed,” continues B. Skow. “I want to be able to continue to challenge myself with new concepts. The opportunities available to take my career in new directions are exciting. My studio, Skow Digital, will allow me to produce the porn I’ve always wanted to.”
