Don Hollywood and Brooke Hunter’s Re-Union

Porn Valley- You hear things. I was on a set this week in which I heard that Don Hollywood [allegedly] hadn’t paid some people from a movie he did earlier this year called Re-union. Accordingly, Hollywood was supposed to have stopped payment on a check to Jennifer James. He explains why that was. But as far as the other person was concerned, Hollywood takes umbrage.

“Bullshit,” said Hollywood when I caught up with him yesterday afternoon. “That’s bullshit. There was one guy who was a grip. He signed on for three days and was late the first day, didn’t show up the second and third day. I didn’t pay him. I paid other people to do his job. So he was there for a day and decided I owe him $150. I told him right to his face I’m not going to pay you- you left me high an dry. He said, ‘Well, I worked a day.'”

The grip is telling the story that his car overheated on the way to the shoot and was basically left stranded.

“How is that my fault?” asks Hollywood. “He was late and as far I was concerned he did a very inferior job. I wasn’t satisfied with his work and what I did, I took that $450 for the three days and split it among the other grips and production assistants on the set. They took on the extra work. I could argue either side in all fairness. Is he entitled to be paid for the day? I could see an argument that he is. I can see an argument that he isn’t. He never called. He never made any attempt to get in touch with us.”

“As far as Jennifer James is concerned, Jennifer James was paid $3,000 on the movie,” Hollywood continues. And according to Hollywood, James was paid another $2500 to edit the movie.

“When she delivered the movie supposedly done, we took it to be authored at Video Images in Van Nuys,” continues Hollywood. “All of the audio was off by 8 point something-frames.” Because of that, Hollywood figures he spent another $2,000 re-editing the movie.

For its problems, Re-union, which was shot in February, hasn’t been be released yet. Then, said Hollywood, James told him he owed her money for additional work. She told him it was $800 and Hollywood wrote out a check for that amount.

“When it turned out I had to spend another $2,000 to re-do the whole movie, I stopped payment on the check and never heard back from her,” said Hollywood, noting that he still considers James a friend and hasn’t spoken to her about this issue.

“The movie is so far over budget and beyond a lot of things that were agreed on in the deal for the movie,” Hollywood goes on to say. He cites an instance where James told him she could get a $30,000 cable deal.

“She didn’t get a $30,000 cable deal- I got a $12,500 cable deal,” Hollywood points out.

Brooke Hunter wrote and cast the movie which the Hollywood’s touted to a fair-thee-well on their Monday night KSEX show.

“Brooke was supposed to direct it and Jennifer was supposed to co-direct it,” said Hollywood. “There were discussions over who was good to shoot it. Whether we were going to get Barry [Woods] to shoot it or whether Jennifer was going to shoot it.”

Hollywood said James was trying to work with Video Images to straighten out the editing problems.

“It took until June or July to get this thing out of edit,” he states. “And it’s still a nightmare to this day.”

“This was the biggest dollar production we ever bit off,” states Hollywood. “It was a very stressful, very difficult shoot. I love Jennifer. I think she’s great. I don’t have a bad word to say about it. She was trying to tackle HD editing with a new machine and I understand that they’re a problem. But I also understand that I’m answering to investors and have gone into my pocket probably three to four thousand dollars just to clean up problems that should have been taken care of on a movie that should have been released in June. And it’s just getting released probably next month.”

Not that he was making any assumptions, but Hollywood said it would have been nice to have made the AVN nominations and perhaps had some consideration for them.

“It’s a beautiful movie and a beautiful cast,” says Hollywood. “I had the joy of having two female directors that were, to a certain extent, butting heads.”
