dv8, why no answer pm? :o

It is kind of hard to handle this thread and PMs at the same time. I am trying to get all questions answered here, while juggling my work schedule. Hopefully you understand. It is always better to ask questions in the thread.

Lighting question....What are you using....Single large octobox?

A bit of a complicated question because it depends on the situation and my what my goal is.

Generally I am using a two or three lights setup in conjunction with natural light. Sometimes I use my large octobox as my main light and then an edge light. Sometimes I use the large octobox with two edge lights. Sometimes when I want a really natural look I will use a shoot thru umbrella with an edge.

My more complicated setup is a beauty dish for the eyes right above the model and then a very large parabolic at an angle in front and then one or two edge lights at 90 degrees behind the model. Those setups really only work best with a photo assistant, because the big factor are the micro adjustments you make as the model moves. I also like the setup more so when I am shooting with a long lens.

And sometimes I love just natural light with just a little bit of fill.

Other variations in the above examples might be adding a bounce board or some foamcore and or using a hard light, like a 2k or 1200 HMI, to scrape along the background maybe with a gel on it.

do you know the guys over at bangbros?

and...

do you know about miley ann aka bella rey and giselle leon aka lexi brooks

What about Bang Bros specifically. Many years ago they wanted me to move to Florida and shoot for them, but I had no interest in moving to Miami.

I have shot and worked with both girls. Miley Ann is long out of the business. I believe she fell in love with a firefighter and quit. Giselle has come a long way from her days as Lexi Brooks. She is much hotter now and also a much better performer. Back in the lexi brooks days she was pretty bad. Now she is real good.

what are a persons prospects after porn. you talked about a few of the girls and guys "retiring". what do you do then? do most of them get married have kids? is it hard to find a job once youve been in porn?

The girls that retire return to civilian life. Get a regular job or go to school or finish school. Typically settle down with a "normal" guy or in some cases even have a family. There are tons of girls that have left the industry and found employment or life outside of the business, so it can't be that hard to get a decent job after doing this. I guess it matters what you plan to do. If you want to be a politician or school teacher, your going to have problems most likely because of the stigma associated with doing this.

I once had a friend that worked at Napster many years back and I went to go meet her and was shocked to see a former performer working there. I played it off because I didn't want to out her or mess with her life. But it definitely caught me off guard for a minute.

Comparing something like the original Deep Throat to movies and the industry today...what would it take the industry to get back into making movies like that? Yeah, it was a porn flick, the plot was cheesy, the acting wasn't the greatest (especially compared to today's acting, but for the time it wasn't terrible), but as a whole its a watchable movie.

Is it simply budget that's holding the industry back from making actual real movies like Deep Throat? Are the people willing to fuck on camera just not good at real acting and that's what's holding it back?

I remember watching the porn version of Pirates (rented through Netflix and I know that was the shitty soft-core version but whatever) and while it had a huge budget the acting was still shitty porn acting from what I remember.

Is there any attempt at making movies with hardcore sex scenes in them vs hardcore sex flicks with shitty plots?

You should see some of the videos I posted in this thread, specially in this posting:

http://forums.offtopic.com/showpost.php?p=148477210&postcount=292

This was in response to someone else asking a very similar question.

There has been a big "rebirth" of sorts into making porn movies that are more plot oriented and specifically that could be watched with a female. That above link shows some of the youtube trailers with no sex.

Any news of soft core models crossing over to the HC side?

malena morgan, karli montana, Carlo banks etc :x:

Malena hasn't shot any hardcore scenes in awhile.

Karli Montana is now going b/g and will be doing her first few scenes for Brazzers.

do you have any kids or want to have any ? Would you have any objection with marrying and having kids with an industry woman ?

not sure if answered, but do you generally scout for established talent?

95% of the time via agents/agencies that specialize specifically in getting models that will perform in adult movies. Some of the agencies are very big, having a roster of 100+ models and other agencies are smaller, only having 25 girls. They also rep male performers as well.

They make a cut for every job that they book.

I love Chicago. Some of the best food in the country. Buffalo Joe's, Pita Inn and Lou Malnati's are some of my all time favorite spots.

DV8. I have just one more question. what the hell is up with preggo porn? Where does the industry find that "talent?"

Pffft you got me. I have never shot anything like that. It really isn't remotely sexy. It can't be all that easy to find or all that common.

I have no interests in having kids. No desire to have that responsibility. I am not good with things like that. I don't think I would be a very good father either. To be a parent, you have to be really willing to sacrifice a big part of your life and put your child's needs over your own. I am not sure I have those qualities and certainly wouldn't want to mess up my kids life or future because of the work that I enjoy and like to do.

Something I have never talked about on here before is I actually was married. This is why I know I wouldn't be good at being a father. I was not good when it came to being married and often times was far too selfish or too consumed with work.

Not sure if you answered this but how is rocco siffredi as a person.
You said i euro actresses are more "wilder" than Americans, going by Roccos' movies It seems the euro girls are more willing to eat his ass than when he does movies in america, is that just a preference of the audiences or are the euro girls more down for anything?

also have you ever worked with Joanna Angel or her company?

A+++++++++++ thread as always.

1. For some reason I thought you purchased a Cirrus SR22 Airplane a few years ago, could be another OTer but he was also in the porn biz. Perhaps someone else can clarify
2. Do the chicks make you get tested before you bang them off set?

Euro girls can be hard to shoot. While they do "wilder" sex scenes then their American counterparts,

I've never watched any Euro porn. Can you (or someone else that knows) explain?

When you shoot Euro performers you cut the sex and they literally walk away and when you start to roll video again, your dick better be hard, because they are not helping you. American girls have the luxury to choose to do porn. Euro girls sometimes literally have no other choice or their family is going to starve to death.

That last part really sucks ass, but I guess it makes the "not helping you get your dick hard" part make complete sense.
