Running Time: 85 min.

Production Date: 8 / 2001

Director: Jon Yuma and Nic Cramer

Cast: Taylor St. Clair, Kylie Ireland, Silvia Saint, Misty Rain, Tavalia Griffin, Illona, Randy Spears, Jay Ashley, Dillion Day, Brian Surewood, Dick Nasty, and Chad Thomas

Initial Expectations: Jon Yuma and Nic Cramer did some great work in their Ecstasy Girls series. Iím hoping for more here!

Initial Reaction: Eh.

Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting a behind the scenes look at highly artistic sex, complete with the same art direction

Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting something new, with good technical aspects, or with straightforward scenes

Audio /Video Quality: The audio varies from scene to scene. Most of it is pretty good, having nice clarity for the dialogue as well as a good balance. The video also varies, but normally sucks. Some of it has such bad pixelation that I wasnít sure if I was watching new porn or if somebody had piped in an Atari game.

Music: The music has a bit of a techno and new age feel, and normally rests very nicely in the background. Unfortunately, it doesnít fit the feature at all.

Disc Complaints / Misleading Advertising: The cover to this DVD makes it look like itís a new feature, or at least a compilation of many of Nic Cramer and Jon Yumaís movies. Instead itís a collection of extra footage that comes almost exclusively from their Ecstasy Girls series. The title shot of the feature even lists the title as Ecstasy Girls Raw rather than just Raw. I havenít seen much of this series, but the footage here looks very much like what I remember on those DVDs. I liked what I saw of the Ecstasy Girls series, but it has quite a bit of art direction so I think a lot of people would dislike it for that reason. Iím sure those people would have liked to know what they were getting here, and if I was one of them I would feel misled. Even with liking the feature, I feel a bit mislead, but with SinTec Media Labs involved here thatís par for the course.

Menus: The menus are nothing special. The main menu is unanimated and the chapter menu lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene.

The Feature: Raw 1 captures some of the making of some of the scenes for Jon Yuma and Nic Cramerís movies. They let you know who the lady is in each scene, but nothing more, such as the movie the scene came from if you like the scene enough to want to get the original movie. Occasionally Jon and Nic add a comment or caption to the video to let you know a little additional information beyond what you can see.

Silvia Saint and Jay Ashley start things out with a behind the scenes look at their scene from Ecstasy Girls 3. You get to see both Jay and Silvia working together as well the crew working their magic to obtain the artistic effects that Jon Yuma and Nick Cramer are known for. Nick and Jon occasionally add comments to let you know some of what youíre hearing in the background or what theyíre doing.

Itís a mixed bag of a scene. Some of it is nicely done, but most of it seems drawn out way too long. I think itís also hurt by the video being filtered and otherwise altered to create some of the artistic look that Nic Cramer, especially, is known for. Some of this scene was interesting, but nothing really grabbed me about it.

Illona and Brian Surewoodís scene from Passion Tales 3 is next. You get to see Illona pose for the photo shoot as well as the sex being captured, while Taylor St. Clair is prepped for the paint-on latex outfit that sheís covered in as she takes on Dillion Day. As they fuck, the latex is slowly ripped off of her. The work through a couple common positions, including a little anal for Taylor, before she finishes things up with a decent facial.

I was pretty bored once again, and this time even broke out the fast forward button. The action seems to be captured in the order it happened, but jumping between Illona and Taylor left me a bit ticked off. I was bored by Illona and interested enough with Taylorís latex preparations, which are barely shown, that I was once again left a bit bored.

Third up is Kylie Irelandís scene from Ecstasy Girls 6 with Randy Spears. In addition to seeing Randy take on each of Kylieís holes, you get to see Kylie getting a little chicken loving. You get to see the hardcore shots, as well as how they do the softcore. Kylie finishes things off with a nice facial.

This is one of the bets sequences in the feature. Kylie almost always looks to be a wonderfully fun person, and thatís just the feeling I get here. The bit with the toy chicken is hilarious, and does a great job of showing the lighter side of shooting porn scenes. Sadly, you get to see very little of Randyís personality, which is too bad as he normally comes off very well for the camera also.

Misty Rain takes on real life hubby Chad Thomas in the penultimate scene. Misty sucks Chad before he nails her from behind. Misty even plays with Jon Yuma a little between takes, and finishes things up with a nice facial.

This seems like a better scene. Maybe I liked it more because I knew that by now I shouldnít have much for expectations, and maybe it was due to Mistyís playfulness coming out very well. Iím not sure what it was, but I did like this scene a little better than the others.

Finally, Tavalia Griffin takes on the extremely appropriately named Dick Nasty with a scene for Ecstasy Girls 4. Nic Cramer gives Tavalia and Dick a few instructions as to what theyíre wanting before letting Dick dive into her snatch. Finally, Tavalia takes a decent facial and plays with it a little for photos.

This scene took the feature back to my original opinion of it. I was bored throughout almost the entire scene and had to reach for the fast forward button again. There is a little extra footage here that was cut from the finished scene, but you can also see why it was cut very easily.

Raw 1 leaves me with very mixed feelings. On one hand, itís nice to see a movie about the behind the scenes making of a movie. I love watching featurettes on the making of adult movies, and thereís some great talent here thatís well known for being a lot of fun. On the other hand, nothing really grabbed me about the movie. I was often bored while wondering what movie the scene came from, as youíre only told the name of the girls in the scenes and never where the movie is actually coming from. I was also bored by many of the comments and captions. A few of them were good, but most of them were to the effect of looking forward to tearing the latex of Taylor St. Clair, thatís us on the edge of the screen watching the action, or that reverse cowgirl can be tough for the performers but looks good on camera. The comments are few and far between, which at times gave me the feeling of a behind the scenes featurette with a commentary where the director had nothing to say. The biggest problem, however, rests between the video and the music. The video is horrible and extremely inconsistent throughout the movie. It flips from pretty clear to looking like an impressionist painting quicker than Slick Willie could get his zipper down to test out a new intern. The music also interfered with things by making the feature completely confused. I wasnít sure if I should watch it as a porno or as a behind the scenes featurette. If youíre not sure whether you want to watch a behind the scenes featurette or a porno, Raw 1 will probably be worth your while.


Extras: The slide show includes twenty nice looking snapshots, and pumps them out at the rate of one per second. Thereís also credits that let you know that this is another fiasco that can be blamed on SinTec Media.

Themes: Straight, anal, and spanking

Condoms Usage: None

Raincoat Factor: Low

Overall: Currently, Nasty Pixxx Raw DVDs can be found online for between $4 and $28 with almost everybody offering it for over $15. Donít pay more than the low end here, as the video is horrible. The feature itself is also extremely schizophrenic and thereís nothing worth mentioning for trailers.

Note to Nasty Pixxx: A little more attention for your video quality would go a long, long way. It normally doesnít matter how hot the scenes you include are if people wonder if what theyíre watching on the screen is real people or ones made out of Legos due to the pixelation. The video quality here dropped your overall rating an entire half point.
