Time For A Sasha Grey Thriller!
Sasha Grey has a new film out on blu-ray – and Sasha is starring with Elijah Wood! The premiere was held in Spain, where the cast and crew were ready to share this psychological thriller with the world!
“Open Windows” On Blu!
Sasha has been focused on making terrific independent cinema – and in this case, she is working with Elijah Wood on a thriller that is perfect for blu-ray!
Kudos to the entire cast and crew for this great independent thriller – now on blu-ray! Here’s a look at the film!
Here is the trailer:
Here’s the plot: Sasha Grey stars as an actress named Jill, who refuses to have dinner with Nick, a fan who won a date with her in an Internet contest. Elijah Wood is the spurned fan…
A guy named Chord, posing as Jill’s campaign manager, helps Nick spy on the actress from his own computer. Nick starts a game in which he realises that is only a puppet into the manic plans devised by Chord…
Elijah Wood has been on a creative tear recently, using his production company to make edgier work, like his remake of “Maniac.”
He also produced a very low-budget horror film called “Toad Road”, which was released by a new company called “Artsploitation Films.”
This is the latest in a string of great Sasha movies, such as Steven Soderbergh’s “The Girlfriend Experience.”
And of course, as much as it may annoy Sasha, here are some of the great adventures I had with her in Australia!
Sasha’s Travel Adventures!
If you’ve read any of my previous posts, you know that I had the chance to travel to Australia with Sasha, exploring one of the greatest countries in the world!
Here she is filming with our crew at Sydney’s convention center…and she also got the chance to take on some much more dangerous sports as well!
Sasha Gets A Shark Photo Bomb!
Those were indeed REAL LIVE SHARKS photo bombing Sasha as she walked among them at Sydney’s Aquarium…and no, there are NO barricades or glass between her and the sharks!
Here’s a short video all about it her adventure – first up, getting instruction from her Shark Master – and asking if she can “walk like a duck underwater!
Then it was time to walk into the tanks and hang out with the sharks…we were all, of course, safely kept behind thick glass!
Sasha Gets “Brushed Back!”
Then it was time to “interact” with the sharks…remember, there is nothing between her and those sharks! Here’s a video in which she discusses the “tail flipping” incident!
You can see all of the pictures – and more video – by clicking on the link below:
Sasha Goes Bats!
Sasha also got to see Australian bats – which just hang out in their parks and look like this:
That story with pictures and video can be found here:
Surf’s Up With Sasha!
OK, this was Sasha trying out a game where you try and stay on a mechanical surfboard…she did pretty well at it! But we decided to really test her, and took her to the iconic Bondi Beach, where she learned to surf for real!
The entire story, plus lots of fun videos, are located here:
Sasha’s On Top Of The World!
Finally, we had the chance to travel to Melbourne, and while we were there we headed up the tallest building in the southern hemisphere: Eureka Tower…
And yes, Melbourne is as beautiful as it looks – we had a great time, and if you want to see the entire video of Sasha peering out from 88 stories high, and how the cube she is in magically transforms, just click BELOW:
Finally, I found this hilarious short video of Sasha in a car putting on some makeup – and yes, she realizes she is being filmed:
As you can see, Sasha is great fun to work with, so if you are a fan, go order “The Juliette Society” now!
Congrats to Sasha for the publication of her novel!
More To Come From “The Juliette Society”!
Congratulations to Sasha Grey on the best-selling status of her debut novel, “The Juliette Society”! And just announced: a sequel is on the way!
Sasha Grey’s novel, “The Juliette Society” is a worldwide sensation – the book is a bestseller in a number of countries around the world – and the excitement continues as Sasha is writing a sequel!
Sasha has been promoting the book around the world, including personal appearances and book signings – when I traveled to Australia with her, she had tons of fans meet her at a personal appearance in Melbourne:
Sasha Down Under!
I am a big supporter of Sasha’s work, because I admire how focused and driven she is. I had the chance to film lifestyle segments in Australia with Sasha…and she was terrific to work with…
Melbourne Australia is a gorgeous city, and it is also home to the tallest building in the southern hemisphere:
After going up 88 stories in Eureka Tower, Sasha went into a small room and – well, you can watch what happened for yourself:
The people in Melbourne were terrific, and a huge number of fans came out to meet Sasha when she made a public appearance:
After Melbourne, we headed to Sydney, a much more raucous city, where Sasha let us put her to the test with a variety of extreme sports – and she did them all, including swimming with sharks…
Shark Photo Bomb!
Sasha donned scuba gear for the first time ever and went underwater to walk among sharks in Sydney…absolutely NOTHING between her and the sharks…and two of the more playful sharks decided to photo bomb her!
Here’s a short video of her adventure, including her describing how one of the sharks took a swing at her!
First, here is her instruction before entering the tank:
Once inside, Sasha was literally among the sharks, with NO barrier between her and them…and she describes what happened next:
And of course, our Australia adventure was just beginning…it was time for another “first time” sporting adventure…
Surf’s Up With Sasha!
Even though she had never done it before, Sasha willingly donned a wetsuit and learned to surf at Australia’s legendary Bondi Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world:
That led to my favorite video with her EVER – when she discovered – quite unexpectedly – just how cold the water was at Bondi!
Sasha was an amazingly fast learner: within a half hour she was surfing! I also love this video, which captures the moment Sasha discovers that they spit their gum out on the ground in Australia just like the rest of us:
It was a great trip down under, capturing the lifestyle of the Aussies, and even cooking bugs! Yes, that is what they are called, although they are really just “giant-shrimp-with-squashed-lobster-heads” things:
Still, she cooked them, along with a kangaroo steak – they are raised commercially just for that purpose – and we had a nice taste of Australia:
I posted a number of short videos that captured some of the “behind-the-scenes” moments from the trip – you can find them here:
I have thought about these fun shoots as I read all about Sasha’s success with “The Juliette Society” – so if you haven’t purchased the book yet, now is the time!
And, if you are a Sasha Grey completist, here are ALL of the stories I have posted of our Australian adventure…beginning with Sasha’ 88-story Melbourne adventure:
Then, it was off to Sydney:
That’s where Sasha donned a wetsuit and went for a walk among sharks – here is the complete shark dive adventure:
I have to reiterate that there was nothing between Sasha and the sharks and stingray except her instructor:
And of course, I was given more pictures by someone on the crew, so I did a shark followup here:
Then it was time to head to Australia’s famed Bondi Beach:
Here is the entire surfing adventure, with a number of fun videos of Sasha on a surfboard:
My first post was all about Sasha’s fan signing in Melbourne…
This is the story of how we got lost inside Melbourne’s massive casino:
Then, when I previewed the book, I also shared some video of Sasha discovering bats in Sydney:
Luckily, we shots lots of behind-the-scenes pics and video, which is why I am able to share them with fans:
And my most recent story focused on the release of the novel, plus some additional outtakes I found!
OK, so that’s it – your entire library of Sasha Grey’s Australia adventures! If you made it this far, I remind you to make sure and purchase “The Juliette Society” for yourself and friends!
And don’t forget to buy Sasha’s latest film!
