    How do I get a job in porn? I am not interested in being a performer (that is other LPSGer's fantasies) but rather as crew person.

    I think it would be fun to roll up to one of those big mansions in the Hollywood Hills and go to work there for the day. Or head off to one of the locations that Private shoots their high end films out and work for a week...sure beats sitting in an 8x8 cube all day having artificial lighting pouring into your retinas.

    Try picking up a drug habit and hanging out on street corners in the San Fernando Valley. That seems to work for most people. Being mentally ill is a plus, as well.

    fri2219,

    I thought only the performers were doped out and mentally unstable? I was of the opinion perhaps naively that for the camera and crew folks it was an honest days work for an honest days pay.

    Are they usually fucked up as well?

    First of all, honey, :rolleyes:.

    And secondly, First I'd look into getting some pictures. Contact a local professional photographer to get some nudes to put a portfolio together. Many porn stars start out as models. They do this because it's a foolproof method. Anyone who wants to be an actor has a portfolio. If you want to get into acting (yes, porn involves acting) then you need to find some production companies in your area and get signed. If you don't live in an area where porn is a big industry, i.e. all along the east coast, west coast, great lakes, then you're probably not going very far.

    I've a friend who's a porn producer in Miami and it's a lot of hard work. If you don't know how to even get started, then you're probably just trying to live out the fantasy. I know you said that you're not, but you are.

    If you look out of the window of a passing train,

    Heather, atleast its more achievable than my dream! Some of us are mentally ill (me) and some of us have very unrealisic goals (me), some of us live in a fantasy world (me) and some of us just also want to make a difference. (me)

    JMeister, don't let anyone put you off your dream, if you want to go ahead and do it, do! Yours have a small obsticle compared to others. However, if you are just looking for wall to wall sex, I don't think the porn industry would be such a good idea.

    Atleast you don't need £250,000,000 ($490,426,127.64 - wild estimate) to start your dream, 16 miles of rails, 25 members of staff, 20 individual items of rolling stock, 3 Train Operating Companies to co-operate with, several hundred feasibility studies, several hundred public enquiries, several hundred draft plans and still at the end of the day, be kicked out of the door, because it would never work! (Or becomes far to expensive).
    Yes, my own 12in-to-a-foot scale model railway is what I am talking about. At that scale, it can become quite profitable (as you are moving realisticly looking model humans in all shapes and sizes from one location to another), life like commodities (Shingle and sand for the Enviroment Agency for example) and have life like disasters and crashes that look real.

    Now, going into the porn business looks like easy work compared to wanting to start your own railway business.



    EDIT:
    Looking at JeremyA's post also reminds me. If you are willing to, you could do it yourself in theory. But, you need a very high end web designer (which I am studyng ATM, although, I wish to make my site first.) to make money as most porno sites now are on the net, some girls that would love to have sex and show off their bodies on camera and have them posted on the internet. (If you pick up a nice girl, may you send one this way if she's interested? ;) ). You also need to consider other media and other ways to make money if you are interested in going into the tens of thousands mark.
    You also need some decent equipment and meet the expectations of your market. Its no good having shot after shot after shot doing the same thing to your girlfriend millions of times, as everyone gets bored of that. You may want to liase with your audience to also find what they want, how much they are willing to pay for it and how long they fancy staying members on the site. Do it right and you could make a small fortune.

    (I wish I did this for my 3D work years ago, rather than working freelance as I do now).

    HTHs - All logical really.

    I think folks are misinterpreting my post. I just want to be a employee working on a shoot in a nice location. (I believe the term is casual employee) I don't want to be the director, prodcuer, or owner as have any aspirations or desires to make a living from it. I like my day job just fine.

    The fantasy job for me would be to run sex performance business. Live porn to your liking in your home or for a party. For example if you wanted to see FITB doing FITB to FITB, you'd call me. How's that for a fantasy business?

    "Focus" on getting some "exposure" and see what "develops".:biggrin1: As long as you keep your "perspective" straight, and don't get "framed" for anything illegal, you should realize your dreams in a "flash".:rolleyes:

    (one last hurrah for you, agnslz!!):biggrin1: :tongue:

    i don't think some people are even reading your post. To answer your question, I have no idea. But I think good camera people edited are sorely needed. Know that close ups of the genital smacking throughout 90% of the scene is not good. And show the woman's face. and most importantly show the first entry between the penis and the vagina or ass. Don't just skip from bj to rabid fucking. Just some of my petpeeves. It seems like Beavis and Butthead are working a lot of the jobs in porn:rolleyes:

    Go to film school. Learn a film-related trade. Although that might be overkill for casual work.

    Talk to people who work in film schools or go to film schools. Scan their bulletin boards for the dodgy kind of filmwork you seek.

    Or try workopolis or monster.com ... :tongue:

    Ah, Hatched, I should've known something interesting would "develop" out of this thread. Thanks for leaving one last im"print" on this place for me to enjoy. And even though I'm not in my right "frame" of mind this early in the morning, I "still" hope my efforts at punning "come out" all right.:biggrin:

    I bow before the Punmaster himself! :notworthy:
