Making Porn: shoot day

When you’re shooting a porn, it’s very easy to forget what you’re doing or for things to get a bit confusing mid-way along. For example, let’s take a boy/girl scene (assuming you have no dialogue or story - we’ll get to that stuff later), and you’re ready to shoot the sex scene. Does your model(s) know what to do? You can’t just say, “Okay, fuck… Now!” and trust that all the stars will align and you’ll have an amazing scene. Surprisingly, the exact opposite thing is more likely to happen. There’s nothing more dick-limping than people who don’t know what to do next, but are trying to make their confusion also look sexy. Shit show. Not good. So, what do you do?

Talk it through
This one’s the most obvious step, and maybe you already do it, but do you REALLY do it? Again, using the boy/girl as the example (but use your imagination for whatever you shoot and you’ll see it still applies), how much foreplay do you (the director) want? How do you want that to go? Depending on your style, there might be different ways. If you’re shooting “submission” porn, does the girl look worried that she won’t make him happy, while still being consensual? Or the other way around? Is it rough sex? In which case, is it intense, with light biting and dirty talk? Does the blowjob have to be fast, slow, sloppy or is she taking it out to say something dirty every 30 seconds? You get the idea - you can start by planning things out through talking. That way, he/she/they know what you’re looking for, and what (or who) comes next.

Dry run
Yeah, that’s just like it sounds. It’s a good idea to sit in the area you’re going to shoot and have your talent “dry run” all the positions. Clothes on, just getting a feel for where they have to be and what they should try to accomplish. Gives the camera person a chance to figure out where they need to be from one position to the next.

Shot lists
You wouldn’t necessarily think that you could forget to take a model’s photo on the day of the shoot, but it happens. More often than you’d believe. A good way to knock this problem on the head is to create a shot list. Each separate thing that needs to be captured on camera as video or photo. Model introducing themselves. Sexy butt-shaking to show her off. Photo of him and her with their identification for your legal documents. Make a list - it’s amazing how many really important things can fall out of your head on the day of a shoot. It can be hectic.

That’s a very basic hit-list of things that can make your shoot day go smoother. Pro studios have producers whose job is to take care of all these things. Smaller studios and lone producers have to handle this type of thing themselves, so building good habits now will help you achieve better results and shoot better porn down the road.
