ED Nominee Schevelle Dancing at Deja Vu Tampa

Schevelle and Tony Batman

Tampa, Florida – After a full tour of the country this year, Showgirl Schevelle and Host Tony Batman will be making their way back to the Tampa Bay area August 20-21, 2010, performing at the Déjà Vu Showgirls in Tampa, Florida. The high energy feature dancer will perform both Friday and Saturday night live on stage with two shows nightly.

This is the final Feature weekend before the Exotic Dancer Gentlemen’s Club Expo and Awards show in Las Vegas, where Showgirl Schevelle is nominated for the third year in a row for the coveted “Entertainer of The Year Award.”

“The last time we were at the Tampa Déjà Vu it was a full house and you could feel the excitement in the room,” said Emcee and Host Tony Batman. “Schevelle is one of the co-hosts of the famed Screaming O Stage show and we are no stranger to a loud and wild crowd. We expect the weekend at the Déjà Vu to be more of the same craziness”.

Even though she has appeared all over North America performing with the Screaming O Stage show, and danced her way across the United States and beyond in 2010, Schevelle is excited to make her way back to Tampa. “This club has some of the most enthusiastic fans and some of the hottest dancers around. It makes it a great time every time.”

See Batman and Schevelle at the Tampa Déjà vu Showgirls Friday and Saturday nights, August 20 and 21. The Tampa Déjà Vu is a Full Nude Club, located at 6805 E Adamo Drive in Tampa, Florida. Please call the club for show times and VIP seating information 813-664-8784

Minka Studios Prepared to Debunk Myths on “3D: Fad or Future?” Panel


Miami, Florida – Minka Studios founder, Juan “Nikko” Vargas will take part in the “3D: Fad or Future?” panel discussion on Friday, August 6, 2010, in Hollywood, Florida during The AVN Show.

Sitting on the “3D: Fad or Future?” panel with Vargas will be J. Lalls, Daniel 3D and legendary producer and director Axel Braun. Moderated by AVN Associate Managing Editor, Steve Javors, the panel discussion promises to be an eye-opener for many in the industry that are still undecided on whether to venture into 3D productions for adult.

Vargas has no problem answering those that are timid concerning 3D productions. “3D is a great opportunity to increase revenue in the adult industry. I hope to be able to dispel some of the common myths about stereoscopic video production on this panel. One of the greatest myths is that 3D production is very expensive. That is simply not true. Production of 3D video can be done economically and the returns are worth the extra investment over a regular HD production.”

Vargas founded Minka Studios, and during the past 14 years his crew has applied many different types of technology to 3D production. When Vargas started using 3D camera rigs, they were designed for open space and very static positioning to produce good video display. However that has changed significantly in the last three years. Vargas said, “We have developed a proprietary 3D camera rig that is very mobile. It is lightweight, can get within an arm’s length of the performers and can be used in any location the camera man and the director choose. We have produced 3D videos in association with Pleasure Dynasty that have the feel of reality shows, using the 3D rig just as you would any hand-held video camera. It gives 3D high-definition quality, while allowing for so much flexibility in shooting, and that is what the adult industry needs.”

Minka Studios is offering the entire adult industry the ability to produce 3D video, by providing production and post-production services from their Florida home base. The packages include location shoots and editing and mastering of the finished video. For information on Minka Studios production facilities and packages for all adult entertainment genres, please contact Vargas by email to

Pleasure Dynasty Launches 3D Amateur Catalog at AVN Show


Miami, FloridaPleasure Dynasty Films debuts their catalog of amateur titles in High Definition and 3D formats for their virgin voyage at the AVN Show, August 5 through 8, 2010 in Hollywood, Florida.

3D is the buzz word in all genres of entertainment, and Pleasure Dynasty has partnered with technologic provider Minka Studios to produce high quality video for those who like the idea of 3D, but are looking for the raw quality of amateur offerings. Launching the 3D adult experience is ‘Stolen Vacation Videos’, the first installment in a voyeur themed line that brings fresh talent and superior definition together, to create a viewing experience a cut above the rest.

Pleasure Dynasty CEO and Head Director Carlos Cavero said, “3D is the future. We can’t avoid it. We all have to adapt to stay competitive in the market place. The adult industry has always been a leader in using new technology, and the same thing is happening with the 3D format. I was reading an article by David Bayon for ‘PC Authority’ in August of 2009 and what he said struck home with me: Our industry has been hit hard by free content online and we need to offer viewers something that they can not get in quantity for free. Pleasure Dynasty is able to offer that technology in our own titles, as well as to others that want to start producing 3D content for their own companies. Minka Studios’ proprietary 3D cameras allow us to get within arm’s length of the action, so there is a very personal feel to the video we are producing.”*

For those who want their hardcore unimpeded by superfluous fashion accessories, Pleasure Dynasty is also producing fresh faced, pro-am model video in HD format, beginning with the reality show parody series, ‘Repo XXX’, for new school stroke fans seeking the hottest local sluts from Florida.

Cavero may be a new name in adult production, but he knows how to create a winning team to implement his long term goals, “We have a great group running Pleasure Dynasty, from our sales manager Don Young, who has a long and distinguished history in this industry, to Kash, who is my right hand on every production, we’re delivering quality product to retailers as well as direct to consumers.”

For a first hand look at Pleasure Dynasty’s 3D and HD lines, come by the AVN Show booth #622 Friday, August 6 through Sunday, August 8, or visit the official web site at
