LAist has been a longtime fan of Vivid-Alt (MySpace). Since its creation in 2006, the Vivid Entertainment imprint has released 18 movies and utilized an all-star roster of directors that includes Vivid-Alt head Eon McKai (MySpace), photographers Octavio "Winkytiki" Arizala (MySpace) and Dave Naz (MySpace), artist Vena Virago (MySpace), and pornstar Kimberly Kane (MySpace). 2009 looks to be its biggest year to date, with 30 nominations at last month's 2009 AVN Adult Movie Awards, the release earlier this month of Kane's Live In My Secrets, and ambitious plans by McKai to expand the Vivid-Alt brand online.

So when McKai and pornstar Andy San Dimas (MySpace) invited us to be an exclusive witness to the first day of shooting of McKai's latest feature On My Dirty Knees last September at a Downtown studio, needless to say, we were there. The shoot was the direct opposite of Digital Playground's epic blockbuster Pirates II: Stagnetti's Revenge, as there was a only skeleton crew present -- with McKai working as the porn equivalent of Robert Rodriguez, Sarah as his assistant and behind-the-scenes cameraperson, and a makeup and hair stylist -- and the dialogue was mostly improvised.

Unfortunately, photos were not possible during filming due to the loudness from the camera shutter, but the sex scenes between San Dimas and co-star Alec Knight were vigorous and lasted several hours. And yeah, it was hot.

Apart from the trailer and a description that it's "a stark glimpse into the post-alt generation and a world of sexuality," not much is known about the movie. But as Fleshbot so eloquently stated last December, "who cares?"

Tonight, Vivid-Alt celebrates the release of On My Dirty Knees with a party at The Echoplex (MySpace), which is also the night of Miss Kitty's Parlour 7th Anniversary Ball. There will be a cover charge after 10:00 PM.
