As you can see from other postings, today is rather special as it is the tenth anniversary of Restrained Elegance.
We thought that was a good time to annouce the launch of our new baby,
EleganceStudios.com. We're proud to present the trailer for the first bondage movie produced for our new site. Written
and directed by Steve (aided and abetted by Hywel), Acquiesce our next step in increasing the cinematic quality of our movies.
So why the new site? It became clear in discussions on the forum that trying to shoehorn longer films into the RE update
schedule wasn't really working very well. Of necessity we had to split the films into several parts, which led to too many
compromises. We either had to squeeze bondage into part one, limiting storytelling and character development, or release an
update with no bondage in it, feeling like we were short-changing people.
If we released the succeeding parts in following weeks, rope bondage fans might get bored with nothing but solid rope bondage
footage. If we waited and released the next part in a few weeks, the people waiting for part two had too long a wait. It just
didn't seem the right format for stories that were conceived and shot as a single continuous run.
So Merlin suggested we launch a separate site to concentrate on the feature-length films, also allowing us to offer DVD downloads
which would not be practical for multi-episode RE videos. It also allows us to concentrate on specific themes for a single video
(Acquiesce is all metal bondage, for example) and even branch out a little and shoot CP heavy films, which have never felt that at
home on RE despite Hywel and Ariel both being very into it. In fact both Acquiesce and Amelia's Sunday Spanking were already in
production before we thought of launching Elegance Studios. It was a great relief to us to be able to tell the story continuously
instead of arbitrarily having to slice them up. The new projects we have in the planning stage are being designed as full movies
from the word go and we think this is really exciting!
We will of course be continuing to improve the quality of the video updates here on RE, taking all the lessons we learn
from shooting the longer features to turn each RE video into a real event. So the recent "Chatroom Kidnap" video with Hannah
Claydon only came about by applying what we'd learnt shooting Acquiesce to a shorter story.
I was relieved to see that Chatroom Tease was very well received (one of our highest-rated videos ever, in fact) as that's the prototype
of the style of RE videos we want to make in the future.
If it feels like a short story, a music video, a documentary or episodes of a TV show, it belongs on RE. If it feels like a full-blown
novel or a movie, we can develop that in much greater depth for Elegance Studios without jamming the RE update schedule for weeks!
We hope you'll come and check us out over at Elegance Studios. We're
planning on shooting a few films a year, but we've got an active blog to let you know what's in the pipeline and follow the development of
ideas through the whole production and shooting. Oh, and if you are a fan of CP, don't forget
to check out the trailer for Amelia's Sunday Spanking, also on the site today!
