Initial Expectations: I haven’t heard much about this new studio, but I’m really enjoying amateur action lately so I’m going in with some hope here.
Initial Reaction: I have GOT to see more from this studio!
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting hot and fun sex with real emotion
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody who needs high quality technical aspects
Audio /Video Quality: As usual with amateur movies, the technical aspects lack a bit compared to most professional productions and there’s a little variance from scene to scene. Lost Footage Vol. 1 is no different. The audio is pretty well balanced, but you still hear background noises like the still camera advancing the film and a few directions from the cameraman. There are also areas where the audio completely disappears. The video is similar. There’s some grain, which varies from scene to scene. The lighting is normally pretty good, but there are a few areas where shadows overtake it or where it flickers a little. There’s also some camera shake and other minor problems, such as a dotted line across the top of the screen as if the video wasn’t adjusted quite right when it was mastered. The cameraman also appears in a few segments, as he shows how he wants a pussy spread to see the clit, as well as seeing more than a few pair of shoes and reflections in the mirror. All in all, it looks and sounds about like a home movie. This kind of feel normally doesn’t do anything for me, but here it fits the movie exceptionally well. It gives it a basic and amateur feel, while not being so bad that it interferes with the movie. Whoever is behind the camera here seems to know what they’re doing, and it helps the movie feel like an amateur movie rather than crap.
Disc Problems / Complaints: There’s a watermark for ShotAtHome.com in the lower right corner. Although I don’t care for watermarks, it’s very well done here. It’s very small, constant in its location, and doesn’t flip on and off, which makes it very easy to tune out.
Menus: The menus are very basic. The main menu is unanimated and the chapter menu lets you jump to one of six places in the movie based on stills of those scenes.
The Feature: Lost Footage Vol. 1 collects a “lost” scene from two different girls. There’s no lead-in to either scene, as well as no credits for the movie.
British Brandy, a nice looking blonde, starts things out capturing her cute and very realistic looking sandy blonde female friend Lara with a video camera. Not to fear, however, the girls’ videocamera isn’t used too much thanks to another cameraman that you never see. They decide to have a bit of fun with each other, and explore each other gently while they strip down and pass the camera back and forth. The camera soon falls aside as Lara and Brandy move on to work each other over with their tongue and fingers. They mostly focus on the pussy but also working in a little rimming. The girls also have some fun with a banana that Brandy eats while Lara holds it in just the right place before Brandy takes a whipped cream facial. This is an excellent scene and really makes me wonder how good Shot At Home’s regular releases are if this is the footage they lost! There’s great chemistry between Brandy and Lara, nice energy, and even a fun spirit that seems very rare and hard to find in adult films today.
Kristen, a cute American bleached blonde, starts off her scene showing off some of the new lingerie she just got. She talks about each outfit before playfully modeling them. I wondered several times while watching this scene if Kristen was ever going to start sucking and fucking. That thought was immediately followed by a thought of “Who cares!”. Kristen is so fun to watch due to how much fun she’s having that I could have watched an entire movie of her showing off her outfits. She does move past her modeling, however, and does a strip-tease for the camera along with a little light masturbation. Throughout her tease she talks back and forth with the cameraman, and their great banter continues between them. At the end she even lets him play with her pussy a little. Unlike the previous scene, Kristen’s scene feels like what many would consider “extra footage” since there’s no actual sex. That doesn’t mean that this scene isn’t a winner, however. The entire scene has great charm and is a lot of fun. I had a smile on my face through almost the entire scene, and know that I’m going to have to check out some of the DVDs featuring Kristen!
Lost Footage Vol. 1 is a great feature! No, it’s not as long as most other adult features out there, but it also has more emotion and sexiness than almost any other two adult films combined. The scenes are long, with the shorter of the two running a half hour, but they never feel that long. They feel realistic and like everything is natural for the girls in front of the camera. This had a frequent smile on my face throughout the entire feature, and raised it up enough that even the lower technical aspect quality didn’t interfere with my enjoyment too much. If you’re looking for something different from the standard porno, Shot At Home’s Lost Footage Vol. 1 is definitely worth checking out!
Extras: Previews are included from many of Shot At Home’s releases. There’s almost a half hour of extra action here, with each feature getting about three minutes worth of action. It’s a great extra with how many movies Shot At Home have released (at this time, there’s over sixty available), and my only complaint is that each movie doesn’t get its own chapter so that if you want to skip past a movie that doesn’t interest you, you can move onto the next one.
Themes: Amateur, lesbian, rimming (female > female), fun with food, lingerie, stripping, tease, and masturbation
Raincoat Factor: Very High
Condom Usage: None
Overall: Currently, the Shot At Home line available exclusively at Adult DVD Empire for about $20 each. If you like amateur action, this one is worth the money. The scenes are hot and well done, although they do have some of the technical problems one expects from amateur porn. There’s even plenty of previews for other Shot At Home features as an extra.
Note to Shot At Home: A few minor credits would really help things out here, such as identifying Lara in the first scene. Also, filmographies would be nice so that somebody who picked this DVD up would know that Kristen and Brandy have several other features and that Lara is also included in a few other releases.
