Linda, Chris King, Frank Castle and I have spoken with hundreds of people about starting their own porn companies since we launched Start My Porn Company. A similar thread has run through all of these conversations:
Is there an easy way for me to learn what it takes to start my company without spending a lot of time and money, before I decide if I really want to do this?
Before we started SMPC, members of the ProNet sat down and started outlining what all new producers need to know before they decide to start an adult production company. We use various parts of the outline we came up with for our free introduction calls, in creating our workshop presentation plans and also in the information we provide to clients that retain our consultation services.
But there was still a need to get that information out to those that either can’t attend our workshops, or who prefer to research on their own before speaking to someone at SMPC about their plans to start a production company. Because our goal is to get the real and 100% accurate information out to as many people as possible, we came up with a plan to develop some type of product that would do that. We came up with the SMPC Porn Primer.
The SMPC Porn Primer contains the most important information on everything from how to set up your adult production business legally, what regulations and laws you need to be aware of to stay legal and retain some personal privacy, and how what you shoot and the delivery methods you can leverage to sell it, affects the potential profits you can make in this industry. The SMPC Porn Primer also includes samples of the legal contracts and Federal regulations concerning adult production. The model release, Age Affidavit and other samples that we have included in the Primer, easily saves you over $2500.00 in legal fees, that you can use toward actually shooting content, instead of paying a lawyer to create them from scratch!
