Best Erotic Film laurel awarded by the Atlanta Underground Film Festival to the winning erotic film Headshot, directed by Jennifer Lyon Bell for Blue Artichoke Films

Headshot

About the film

Our re-imagining of Andy Warhol's 1964 classic "Blow Job". Can a sex scene be hot if you can't see the sex? Definitely.

"In that one subtle cinematic moment, all of us saw ourselves up on the screen, all of us saw our own story being told, all of us were moved to give a collective, affirmative and appreciative response — and it was magic!"

Tony Comstock, filmmaker

About Headshot

Synopsis

Can a sex scene be hot, even if you can’t see the sex? We think the answer is a resounding “yes”. Inspired by the 1964 Andy Warhol silent film Blow Job, this is a surprisingly intimate portrait of sex, accomplished without any explicit imagery. As in the Warhol original, a cute leather-jacketed young man reaches real-life ecstasy. However, Headshot embraces what Blow Job omits – the emotional ride that makes sex more than just a physical experience.

 

This is the very first time these stars, Chris Brinkhof and Katinka de Vries, have ever appeared on film. Everything you see is happening for the first time, with no script.

"Contemplative yet also sexy…I highly recommend this film."

Audacia Ray, Live Girl Review

Show Trivia
  • Chris Brinkhof originally worked in the crew of another Blue Artichoke film before approaching Jennifer to say he’d like to star in a film.
  • The Warhol film on which “Headshot” is based, “Blow Job” (1964), is either 36 minutes long or 41 minutes long, depending on the speed at which the film reel is projected. Warhol puposely slowed down the projection speed for a certain aesthetic effect.
  • Chris and Katinka truly never met in person until the moment you see captured on film. This is their very first meeting.
