CHATSWORTH, Calif.—Popular Canadian web starlet Bryci, who together with husband J.D. Bella oversees the network of sites anchored by her own , ventures for the first time into the DVD market by way of a new distribution deal with Juicy Entertainment.
Under the deal, BellaPass will initially release one title per month through Juicy containing exclusive-to-DVD scenes, and expand to two DVDs per month in the near future. The debut BellaPass DVD, a two-disc set shot entirely in 4K, is simply titled Bryci and ships March 9, with a March 16 street date.
Having started her website several years ago, Bryci told AVN that she and her husband found their way to Juicy as admirers of Kelly and Ryan Madison, whose Kelly Madison Media the company also distributes.
"We're big fans of PornFidelity [the Madisons' flagship website], and we bought one of their DVDs and saw on the side Juicy Entertainment," Bryci explained, "and we were like, 'Hmm, maybe we should think about doing DVDs someday, I wonder if they would even be into us. That would be so funny.' So we contacted them and they were like, 'Yeah, for sure!' and we were like, 'What? Seriously? OK, I guess let's do this, why not?'"
For her eponymous first DVD, Bryci brought on a few performers no strangers to the format to share the screen with her, namely Aaliyah Love, Marley Brinx and Katie Banks.
"I've been friends with [Love] for about six years," Bryci said. "So we went down to San Diego for vacation, and we were like, 'Hey, do you have a day off, you want to fly in?' So we flew her in and fucked and filmed it, and it was great. And then in January [in Las Vegas], that's when we got together with Marley and four other girls to film some stuff for DVD."
Bryci noted that she hopes with this move to tap into a new audience without getting caught up in the typical maelstrom of porn stardom. "We're just really far removed from the whole porn industry type thing up in Canada," she said. "[This] allows me to be the girl next door but not have to be a full-blown porn star. I get to have the exposure from having my own DVDs and websites and have the fun of being more known, but I don't have to go and live the actual porn life. We do this to get off on it, to just kind of be exhibitionists. It kind of just works."
Juicy general manager Danny Gorman told AVN that when Bryci first called him, he went to her website and immediately said to himself, "I better sign her right now before she has a chance to call anyone else. I'm honored to have her part of the Juicy team."
