I have been a performer in the adult industry since 2008, starting off in London, UK and then moving to live and shoot in Los Angeles, US. I had been shooting content for my personal hardcore website TanyaTate.com along with some of the camera guys I had been working with on regular shoots in the UK. I had shot with amateur guys for my exclusive series Tanya Tate Casting Couch. This series was simply catching whatever sexually things happened, or in some cases lack of action.
When lesbian film company Filly Films approached me and asked me to direct for them I was honoured, yet nervous. I knew I could shoot a scene for a company, but to perform and direct in the same movie that would be a challenge.
I decided on a massage movie and called in some of my hot girl friends. India Summer, Dani Daniels and Jelena Jensen. I also got a couple of brand new girls to get to play with. The idea that began as massaging some hot bodies started to get a storyline. I found the best place to think of the idea for each scene was when I was not trying, when I was relaxing and even whilst having a play with my pussy.
The day approached for the first scene. I got to bring in my hot young girl, Stormie White, lay her on my massage table and stroke her body all over. Before the scene I conveyed my ideas to the cameraman on how I wanted him to capture it. At first I found it difficult to have on 2 hats, ie both performer and director, but then I simply relaxed into the role. The result, Tanya Tate The Milf Masseuse, my very first full production movie. I was even happier when it was given a nomination at 2013 AVN Awards for Best Older Younger Release.
I enjoy directing now so much, I got to direct a sports vignette for Penthouse and I am currently onto my fifth movie for Filly Films, Tanya Tate’s College Cuties Seduce MILF Beauties.
