“I wanna shoot a porn film! What do I do?”

April 28th, 2016 by lightsoutherncinema

For the last few years, I’ve had many people approach me asking advice on producing their own pornographic films/ adult films/ erotica – whatever you think is cool to call it at the time is fine. I have been on lots of sets, both good and bad and heard ALL the stories. The standard practice which I took for granted as common sense,  are not as common as they should be – so many people are not doing the basics.

Who am I, and why should you take my advice?  I’m the Director of Adult Entertainment Company, Lightsouthern. The company, that I founded in 2011, produces beautiful and fresh content for everyone. As well as producing our own Film Projects, we have 2 brand new Virtual Reality studios, a CINEMA , Toy Store, have content spanning over numerous VOD & Subscription platforms, USA Distribution Deal, European Film licensing Deals, Film Screenings globally, and even have a few AVN & Xbiz nominations. I also started off as a performer and spent 5 years under the Abbywinters flag.

Lightsouthern are the folks in the know for all things porno.

To produce porn in Australia, there is no industry standard or official code of conduct. Budding producers don’t know where to start, and it’s easy to make mistakes and cut corners that can lead to poor practices and health risks. I really believe our industry can be as ethical as so many of us want us to be, and I’d love to see the Aussie industry get bigger and better – we need a ‘New Wave’ of Directors & Producers, so step up, make it awesome and let me help you.

Over the next few weeks I’m going to share a series of posts that take you through the most important aspects of producing adult content. I’d like to demistify the process of shooting, directing and producing films. My experience is specific to Australia, but many of the same principles can be applied anywhere in the world (and I believe they should be).

Below are the topics to cover:

  • The Basics
  • Pre-Production and the importance of Full Disclosure
  • On set: Best Practise

 Next week: The Basics
