Sherry and I love it when we can get exposure for our Pro Net professionals and today PhD Chauntelle’s Porn Valley Vantage ran a fantastic, in-depth interview with Sonny Malone, editrix extraordinaire, Pro Net key member and AVN Hall of Fame winner 2011.
If you have thought about starting your own porn production company (and if you are here on StartMyPornCompany.com, you obviously have), you definitely want to check out this interview. Sonny lays it on the line with an honesty that everyone considering getting into porn production needs to hear.
Doctor Chauntelle writes:
In professional adult film production, filming the sex is only one aspect of a ginormous (that would be gigantically enormous) overall project. There are literally hundreds of hours worth of pre- and post-production labor that go into every scene. Consider: someone… well, really several someones… must secure a location, coordinate the set, manage the budget, assemble a cast and crew, photograph stuff, and market the content to distributors and consumers – whoosh!!
And someone must also complete what may be the most significant step of all, the step that can really make or break any project – someone must edit it.
No one can put it better than that. Shooting the sex is a really small aspect of the whole production. And while it helps a lot to shoot good looking scenes from teh second the camera is turned on, there has to be editing to complete it to the point where the finished product can be released.
Doc Chauntelle will be running a few more of her interviews with the members of Start My Porn Company’s Pro Net in the coming months.
And on a side note, I just wanted to remind all of you aspiring XXX CEOs, that we have a newsletter that you can sign up for, just email email@example.com to get on the mailing list.
I also wanted to take this time to answer a question that we’ve received a lot of email on recently . . .
