Coast To Coast
In spite of a consistent release schedule, not much has been heard about Coast-to-Coast Video lately. The 21-year-old production company, founded by Martin Rothstein, was developed as a companion line to his Model Distributors, one of the oldest adult video and magazine wholesalers in the country.
Coast-to-Coast has just released two excellent plot-based titles, just when the feature market seemed to be in decline. July's release Wild Things on the Run, a sexy farce starring Gia Paloma and Violet Blue, garners a Spotlight Pick in AVN's September issue, and the August comedy 30 Days in the Hole, directed by Jace Rocker and starring Lauren Phoenix, earns the company an Editor's Choice in the upcoming October issue.
We always make good movies but we don't have a big sales department, so we have other distribution channels like cable and foreign, Rothstein said. Everything we do is broadcast on the Playboy Channel.
In addition, based on the demands of satellite television, the company has begun shooting in high-definition, anticipating the emerging market.
Coast to Coast came out of the late 1980s as one of the premier companies of the video age, known for such big-selling series as Cheeks, Best Butte in the West, Kittens, Rainwoman and the original Pussyman series, created by David Christopher. It was Christopher, in fact, who ran Coast to Coast in New York in its infancy, before heading West to pursue his life as Pussyman.
I spent eight great years working with Martin and Will in that unforgettable location in downtown Manhattan, Christopher mused. We worked closely together and in a couple of years we became the fourth largest video company in the adult industry. The movies, the packaging, the relationships, it was all there. But like everyone else in the New York porn scene, I had to go West. It's always been about quality movies featuring glamorous women, gorgeous costumes and red-hot sex.
