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 [http://elmaveshow.com].
“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.”
