There has been super exciting stuff happening for Lightsouthern in 2018. We won a few awards, we were nominated for a few more, we finished up a national tour of Sexpo, we created the first Erika Lust Film to come out of Australia, and also produced a two-part film feature series called Super Host.

With 13 cast members, 9 scenes and some bloody top notch acting by our wonderful Aussie performers Super Host went from one concept, to another, then to another in 6 days. The cast includes some familiar faces, and some incredible newbies! Starring Blake Wilde and Jake Shy, as a house-proud married couple that get their kicks from watching and manipulating their guests in their spare room-to-rent-to-the-public-on-a-nightly basis.

THE CAST

Blake Wilde (the performer of everyones dreams)

Jake Shy (new kid on the block, amazing acting skills & fashion sense)

Violet Russo (the talent permeating from Violet’s skin is ridiculous)

Daliah Amor (Winner Best Porn Newcomer 2018, BDSM aficionado)

Madison Missina (Winner Porn Star of the Year 2018,  check her out in Momentum Vol.2)

Taylor (Momentum Vol. 4 fame, Setting the standard on how to be the best male performer in the biz),

Luc Dean (Momentum Vol.4 Fame, Setting the standard on how to be the best male performer – maybe him and Taylor should fight? We’ll film it),

Jessie Lee Pierce (baddest babe ever, with killer acting chops)

Stevie Green (Creative genius, top gal, loves fortune cookies)

Rosie (of GoW fame, also find Rosie on our Cinema in Australian Bush Adventures)

Laney Day (Check Laney out in Momentum Vol. 3 & 4, I could work with Laney all day everyday),

Stirling Cooper (AVN best newcomer Nominee 2019)

Verde (Unreleased ‘Kinkstergram’, total down to earth babe)

Kink, Shibari (does that fall into Kink? spose), manipulation, Voyeurism, a FOURWAY, cheating wives, cheating husbands, and a very sexy queer cult action.

Having a huge variety of characters was something new, and frankly stressful, however and each performer slotted into those characters so beautifully and impressively. We had many laughs, I can’t thank them enough. Each performer went above and beyond, the acting, the going along with whatever crazy idea we had, Your outfits and props! (Special mention to Jake and Violet).

Our crew was perfect. It’s always tricky finding the right mix of people who can adapt in a fast paced, always evolving and intense environment. Production went for six consecutive days and we produced two Feature FILMS. I can proudly say that with Kristy, Bo, Esmee, Pasha and myself, we created a highly functional team. I am eternally thankful for all their hard work, rolling with schedule changes, cancellations, solving shit on the go and most importantly helping give the performers a safe, enjoyable experience and work environment.

I’m considering making follow up films, or at least scenes. There were a lot of ideas being thrown around the set. The premise is solid, the cast on point so why wouldn’t we? Blake should start dusting off those peach pants.

Thanks to Beate Uhse for giving us another shot at some pretty crazy Aussie films, Fleshlight Australia for donating some toys and supporting fellow Aussie business.

Let’s do it again soon. X

Both films will be available in 2019, along with photo sets by the wonderful Kristy at dirterotic.com, with Behind the Scenes Documentaries only on Lightsouthern CINEMA.

For the last few years, I’ve had many people approach me asking advice on producing their own pornographic films/ adult films/ erotica – whatever you think is cool to call it at the time is fine. I have been on lots of sets, both good and bad and heard ALL the stories. The standard practice which I took for granted as common sense,  are not as common as they should be – so many people are not doing the basics.

Who am I, and why should you take my advice?  I’m the Director of a small Adult Entertainment Company, Lightsouthern. The company, that I founded in 2011, produces beautiful and fresh content for everyone. As well as producing our own Film Projects, we have 2 brand new Virtual Reality studios, a CINEMA , Toy Store, have content spanning over numerous VOD & Subscription platforms, USA Distribution Deal, European Film licensing Deals, Film Screenings globally, and even have a few AVN & Xbiz nominations. I also started off as a performer and spent 5 years under the Abbywinters flag.

Lightsouthern are the folks in the know for all things porno.

To produce porn in Australia, there is no industry standard or official code of conduct. Budding producers don’t know where to start, and it’s easy to make mistakes and cut corners that can lead to poor practices and health risks. I really believe our industry can be as ethical as so many of us want us to be, and I’d love to see the Aussie industry get bigger and better – we need a ‘New Wave’ of Directors & Producers, so step up, make it awesome and let me help you.

Over the next few weeks I’m going to share a series of posts that take you through the most important aspects of producing adult content. I’d like to demistify the process of shooting, directing and producing films. My experience is specific to Australia, but many of the same principles can be applied anywhere in the world (and I believe they should be).

Below are the topics to cover:

  • The Basics
  • Pre-Production and the importance of Full Disclosure
  • On set: Best Practise

       Next week: The Basics

It has been a long time in the making. I have been promising this for a few years now, and I appreciate your patience. We have finally complete our very own…

Lightsouthern CINEMA

The idea is to create an experience, to have a way to view adult film that’s a little special.

What we have created is a Cinema. Streaming an feature adult film every 3 months. When you purchase a Standard Ticket you have access to the film, as well as Behind the Scenes Features and killer Stills Galleries.

If you want to splash out and buy a Premium Ticket which means you have access to EVERYTHING screened throughout the year, all the Behind the Scenes features, Stills Galleries, PLUS bonus content!

Introducing Bobbie! What a dreamboat. This was the first time I worked with Bobbie, typically it;s unusual for us to cast someone in the Momentum films we haven’t worked with before. She came highly recommended and we jumped at her. What a wicked sense of humour she has and some natural acting ability too. killer.

Check out Bobbie and Chloe get in all kinds of trouble together in Momentum Vol.2, available through Pure Play Media September 2015 here’s the link; bobbiemakesusmelt
