Extra Lunch Money Checks out Start My Porn Company’s Services

Extra Lunch Money Video Internet Show
Orange County, California – Extra Lunch Money’s Benic Way took the time to discuss the reality of what it takes to build a successful porn production company with Linda Roberts and Sherry Ziegelmeyer, partners in the adult business consultation and management firm, Start My Porn Company (SMPC), on the most recent edition of the popular web cast, ELM Avenue [].

“I was greatly impressed with the amount of industry knowledge and experience that Linda, Sherry and the people involved with the Start My Porn Company ProNet bring to their service. It is a unique concept for those that want to start their own adult production companies. Their credibility can’t be denied and if I was starting a production company, I would choose to work with them,” said Way.

Start My Porn Company’s services go beyond the typical lecture, book or video courses that are available to those seriously interested in starting their own adult production companies. SMPC offers one-on-one business consultation and strategy planning, as well as professional referrals to a vast network of adult industry professionals through the SMPC ProNet. Another offering by Start My Porn Company is a Weekend Intensive Production Workshop, where those interested in learning how to plan, shoot and market adult content can work along side members of the ProNet on an adult set.

Roberts explains, “Many people are interested in seeing what goes on behind the scenes during a hardcore video production. When we started putting together the concept of Start My Porn Company in 2008, we knew that we would need to offer people real experience on a set for them to truly understand how the adult industry works in all its varied aspects. Participants in our Intensive Production Workshops receive expert advice on how to budget and plan productions, keep mandatory government records, learn what revenue streams are available in adult, and they have the ability to ask technical questions of adult professionals while our video production is taking place.”

SMPC’s first 2012 Weekend Intensive Production Workshop will take place in February and demand for advance invitations have been high.

Ziegelmeyer added, “We started putting out advance invitations to the SMPC Newsletter mailing list in December. Our members showed a great amount of interest in the workshop. In fact, the reason why Benic at ELM Avenue contacted us about this interview is that one of his regular listeners is also on the SMPC Newsletter list and wanted to inform other ELM Avenue listeners about this opportunity. Benic has a unique sales avenue for amateur adult producers with the Extra Lunch Money site, and there are similarities in the way Linda and I view the changing aspects of adult content production and distribution, and the options that the people behind Extra Lunch Money are looking at, as they grow their business. Pros working together to help those starting out in this industry is what SMPC is all about.”

Europe’s Sun Island Studio Sets Sights on American Adult Landscape

Sun Island Studio provides full service production support and self produced titles New Castle County, Delaware – European production house, Sun Island Studio, has quietly built a new company stronghold in the United States over the last two years. With the launch of a new internet site, [] the company takes another step in the goal of expanding U.S. distribution of their self-produced adult content and also offering their production services to other adult content clients.

Since 2005, Sun Island Studio has been a major producer of custom content for European sites, including Scarlett Content and Now the driving force behind the company, producer and director, Alex Allard, offers his video catalog and production services to American content providers, as well.

“Sun Island Studio is a full service production house, not only for my own adult titles, but also for those that are looking for custom scenes and full length videos for their own sites and catalogs. I have put into place a U.S. team of production and post-production artists, to provide the same high quality straight and niche content to the American industry that I have been providing to European content houses for over 5 years,” said Allard.

Allard has taken Sun Island Studio’s cameras to exotic locales from Budapest, Hungary to Sao Paulo, Brazil in search of new models. Along the way, he’s branched out into the adult niches of transsexual and gay hardcore, expanding his own content library, as well as those of his clients.

“Not all beauty is blonde, blue eyed girls. I have been fortunate enough to shoot beautiful models in so many exotic places around the world. Many of them are not the typical porn star that is seen in adult video. I am not going to be a slave to capturing only one type of beauty. I have an eye for the unique, the exotic and models with a natural sexual appetite, no matter if they are girls, men or transgender,” Allard grinned.

Along with the move to providing production for the American business to business market, come plans to make Sun Island Studio labeled content available more widely through U.S. distribution outlets. BluRay and HD DVD releases of the entire Sun Island Studio catalog are offered as well as expanded video on demand, mobile and broadcast licensing opportunities.

“I had been thinking more of the American adult industry as 2010 neared. I share a love between my home country of France and my new home in America. My heart is now in two places at once, and it is time for me to follow that into how I conduct my business. It is time for me to release my own titles in the U.S. and to provide other businesses here with my services,” concluded Allard.
