Do you find that most people in your industry view it/act the same way you do as well? Less social, workaholic types, i suppose; adding to their longevity of their career? Im talking about the people in production.

BTW, lisa ann gives me the weirdest boner. I can't stop thinking of sarah palin because of her. Ever get a chance to fuck her?

but in terms of questions, what is the retirement prospect like for someone in your line of work? do you make enough money to have a good savings?

You have to save and it is up to you to do it. What a lot of people don't understand is I have my own small corp that I run everything thru. Say I produce a scene for Brazzers. They pay me for X amount of scenes and in turn I produce them and pay everyone from cast to crew to myself. With that also comes a tax liability.

Corporate Taxes, production insurance, health insurance, equipment purchases and on top of that saving for retirement all cuts into the money you make in the moment, which is why some people often assume I must be rich, but they don't really think about the reality of what it is being a small business owner.

What do you think of Jenna Haze? She as cute off camera?

I think she is probably the best female performer of the last five years. She was the real deal. 100% into sex. She recently announced she was retiring and I can understand why. She has done everything and made a huge pile of money. Really no reason for her to keep performing.

is every male talent's 'thing', even if they don't always do em, rough scenes? one thing that instantly turns me on is any behavior thats not pretty obviously sensual. fuck verbal abuse, rough handling, etc

No I don't think that is every male performers interest. Some of them have that reputation (ie Nacho Vidal, James Deen, Rocco Siffredi). I think it comes down to the companies you are watching or the product. Some studios specialize in more hardcore extreme sex. Some specialize in more erotic or sensual. You just need to find the product that best suits your tastes.

does the american porn industry make a lot of money overseas?

Not hugely, Europe has their own porn industry and Europe tends to be much on the rougher side.

However the big thing is everyone seems to love American women. I am not sure what it is, but American girls sell the best out of any countries porn. Euro girls don't sell as well and neither do Brazilians. It seems everyone wants to fuck american chicks.

gonna sound like such a piece of shit/putz, but as a fellow video/film guy you think its wise for someone like me (23 yrs old) to pack up and move straight out to LA and hope to find work, or keep my less than fun yet somewhat connected job in NYC? (the weather here sucks to me)

You need some form of plan to move here. Some possible job or internship that would make it worth while. Otherwise you could come out here and quickly go broke. Maybe try and leverage the connections you have to connections in LA? Or another option is to come visit LA or come to things in LA where you can network.

Do cameramen, sound techs, etc... ever get any action due to being in the right place at the right time? Like if a chick is getting railed and the cameraman's crotch ends up close to her face will she start slobbing on his knob?

No... that would be about as unprofessional as possible. Plus it would make no sense in the majority of the scenes. Where did this random dick come from? The performers are told what they are doing before hand and as such their compensation for the scene is worked out with their agent before hand. If shit like this happen, it would look real bad for the production company and could damage their relationship with the agency.

dv8 for president!!!

You, my friend, are living the freakin' life. :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:

And all the pics are badass btw, but the one that made me :eek3: was that art made out of the clay. The closeup picture on that was fucking nuts :rofl:

Yeah that is owned again by that record studio owner. he has two of them of little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf. It is amazing how different they look from far away and then close up.

How often do you shoot mainstream stuff? how did you get into it? Does the pay compare to your adult shoots? Do you do any different positions outside of camera operation?

Not that often. I honestly like adult better. The hours are better in adult. The hours in mainstream are brutal. The food is better in mainstream, but I started to get a gut a little bit when I work too much mainstream. I also find I work better when I am a little hungry. The biggest difference is just the size of the crew. Adult is very small. Mainstream is very big. More can be accomplished because of the size and money, but also things move a little slower and their are to many chiefs and not enough indians in mainstream. Too many people who all have input on minor decisions.

did jenni lee get some face work done?

no idea. It isn't something you should ever ask a girl.

"hey your about to get completely naked for my camera, but did you by chance have your face done because your face looks different".

That is a fast track to a bad photo shoot with a self conscious model.
