The Adventures And Profits Of Making An Adult Movie
First of all if you are looking for porn or links to porn in this article, I suggest you move on. This article just details my whimsical decision to make an adult movie and profit from it.
I was sitting at home, I was bored and I was trying to think of a fun way to make a little extra money. I don’t know why but I turned on my computer and starting searching for small business ides and one item I came across was that the porn industry was making ten billion dollars a year, and that the fastest growing segment in the porn industry was true amateur movies whether they where on DVD or on the web.
Well, this set my mind to racing about a hundred miles an hour. I was not sure I could make a porn movie. I worried about the ethical aspects of it, but more importantly I wondered what would happen if my friends, or worse, my parents where to see me acting in a porn movie! This was my biggest fear, and of course in my mind I was looking for ways to say yes I am going to make a porn movie instead of ways to say I cannot make a porn movie. So the solution was simple. I would not be in the movies, or if I were, I would never have my face on camera. As far as the being recognized, the issue was solved in my mind.
My second fear was what about the legality of making a porn movie, I sure did not want to go to jail so after a little research I found out that to hire adult models you had to get two copies of their identification and have them sign a models release, and keep records on file for as long as the movie was available on DVD or the web. So that was one more issue that was settled in my mind.
Next I had to wonder what kind of equipment I needed to shoot an amateur porn movie. I already had a good MiniDV digital camera, but I needed to get some lights. If you have ever seen families’ home videos the lighting is always bad, so lighting the subjects is going to be important. I made several trips to photography stores and I found out that lights where expensive, so after a little time on an Internet auction site I purchased some inexpensive lights, and they worked just fine.
Finally and perhaps the most important part, I had to find an attractive female model that was willing to take her clothes off and be on video for the word to see. I was pretty sure that this would be the hard part, but it was surprisingly easy. After placing a few ads on Internet sites seeking adult models my email was flooded with responses from women ready to be in my video. I made contact with a couple of the women and settled on which model I would like to hire, I made her and offer, told her exactly what I wanted her to do, and she accepted my offer. Within twenty-four hours we had shot the video, and I paid her. I was surprised how easy it had all gone up unto this point.
I did not realize it at the time, but the hardest part was distributing the movie and making money off of it. The Best and most effective way, was to build a web site, but I really did not want to put all my effort in to it. So after a little research, I found there was several companies that would distribute my DVD for forty percent of the profit. After a month I had recovered my money and made a little profit, and I still get check from that movie a couple of years later.
I could have quit all my other jobs, and worked at this full time and maybe even been quite successful, but I had other interest. It was fun and profitable, and maybe I have not made my last movie just yet.
