    Hello, I'm interested in starting a porn studio within the next year or so. I have about $15-20K ready to invest into it from a company fund that will be made soon and a few thousand more from my account if more money is needed. I can get a company name and all that legal stuff made for me by a certain family member. It's a specific niche site and it sort of mixes well with most of my porn sites. I own a few porn blogs and websites right now and will continue growing them within the next year. Basically I got to the point where now I just pay people to work on them for me and get the monthly cut from them in the mail. I want to make more money though and feel it would be a good idea to start my own porn company and start advertising it in all the normal ways plus on the main websites I own. If a website gets to a certain level, as in a certain amount of unique and/or total views and followers/subscribers/daily visitors, I'll put a few links and ads redirecting to the porn studio website. I got the website stuff down and the traffic ready for it, but now I just need to make it all legitimate and legal. At first I don't want a casting agent until a few shoots have happened. I want to be in control at first and will only hire the camera team, the makeup artist, and the male and female models. Later on I can get a casting agent for more models.

    How do I go about getting a legal actor? I'd need about 3-4 male actors and 10-15 female actresses for the first quarter of the year. I'd only make the studio's website public once I guess at least 30-40 videos have been made and a few photo galleries. I recognize the importance of an 18+ actor and know they'll need to send in their identification and I'll have to make copies and save all of that for the future, but can it be as easy as going around and asking people if they'd want to be in a video and making them sign a contract? Or is it illegal to ask in certain areas of the states? I'm based in the central states. I also have a general idea of where I could get a few willing people to join, but I don't know how I'd ask them without any problems in the future and potential lawsuits.

    For the first year I don't even care if there's little to no profits, I'd probably be able to cover all losses with my current websites and still live comfortably, just it's sort of a goal/dream to have my own unique company now.
    I don't really know where to ask besides a right lawyer (Which I will be in contact with a few lawyers, but that'll be only next summer or spring), so I'd like some responses to just get a basic idea for all the fields I'd need. Thanks if anyone responds.

    If an industry is legal it is also legal to offer somebody a job in that industry.

    Just make sure everything you are planning to film/sell/distribute is legal and you should have no problems.

    For the actors, I'd suggest agencies. Google things like "Adult entertainment actors in (town name)" or something.

    If you are in the US, you need two kinds of id, actor and id should be photographed together, they need to sign a proper release form, these can be downloaded from many sources. The records have to maintained as long as the material is in use.
    I see ads for adult performers on craigslist everyday.

    I used to design for a porn company. They usually payed an independent producer/photographer by shoot, he would hand over a completed scene, including paperwork. If you aren't a photographer, hire someone with experience to teach you the ropes.

    I could make a journey thread.. that's a fun sounding idea. Being in the business I'm in taught me a few things. I'll think about it. If I was to make a thread like that though it'd be at least a few months from now where I'd have more to post about :) So once I'd find the 10 or so female models and 3 or 4 male models all I'd have to do is ask them to come in, take a few pictures with the id's, have some small talk, and if they signed all the papers and stuff, I could set up dates for near-future shootings right? TJNoodles, by design what do you mean? You'd write up how it'd go, or did you find locations for shoots, or hire certain people, etc. I'd love to hear more details.

    By design, I mean graphic design ... ads and tours for sex sites, this paid very well, but got boring pretty quickly.
    I'm schooled in photography, and worked in industrial and broadcast video, so my production experience is on the non porn side of things.

    The real problem with this kind of stuff is finding and dealing with actors, in the real world it's a pain, but in porn it's a lot worst.
    I would start with one shoot for the experience, before trying to recruit an army.
    A lot of this is about budget, what can you spend on each video, what is the roi? Is it cheaper to subcontract the work.
    Finding locations for porn is difficult, that's why it's usually a hotel room or warehouse/studio, unless you have a lot of money to spend.
    I'd like to know more about your niche.

    I've got one of those 3d cams and have been thinking about getting some chicks to strip/dance for me. but I don't think there is enough of a 3d market to make it profitable.

    I can actually give you a fair amount of direction here, I used to arrange the models, photographers, shoots, locations in addition to handling their affiliate sales for Twistys before they sold. Yes, yes it was a dream job! :)

    Two great resources to find models are purestorm and onemodelplace. You can search for those who are in your area, what levels of production they're willing to do (topless, european, b/g, aggressive fisting, etc) and you can reach out to the models directly to negotiate. They'll usually say what their comfort level is in their profile so it's not like you're standing outside a bus station asking strangers if they wanna get forked in exchange for 50 bucks or something.

    I've also found the models from these 2 services to be fairly reliable - there are still no shows but it's a small percentage. It was a positive experience and most people are quite professional.

    There are even some models who are looking for trade so if you've got a good crew, they'll model in exchange for photo/video rights.

    Good luck!

    Funny that this is my first post on this subject im an seo NOOB but i can put some input in here. First off much wealth and success in this venture kailo:). Like everyone else said make a journey thread im sure this was every kids dream career when they first procured pornography or the likes' i used to be heavily into the torrent/megaupload scene and ill give you some advice' Theres alot of saturation with tube sites nowadays full videos are available on many of them free' the days of 30 second samples are long gone. Lots of password crackers brute forcing login' info posting them on forums some are even monetizing on websites with content lockers' DL'ing everything from a site and dumping them on warez related pages' Its alot to it on the security side not to mention legal too. Anyways using backpage and the sites boomboom said would be good as well as modeling agencies just VERIFY that the information is authentic and have a lawyer just in case some issues arise. Im not trying to discourage you but in my opinion the future is cams fetish related especially since that niche's variable combined with cams means big bucks for webmasters and associates. Good luck......

    The interesting thing about this niche is how easy it is to find people willing to do it. Back around 2008 I was trying to make some money doing family and portrait photography. I was doing everything I could think of for marketing and only ever made a few sales. At the end I was basically offering everything for free, no sitting fee, free 8x10 print and customer would only have to pay if he wanted any additional prints. Even that was offered at dirt cheap prices.

    Then I saw on ebay that people were selling nude modelling pics. I didn't really have money to pay for models so I posted ads looking for amateur girls between 18 to 25 willing to pose nude for just some free prints for themselves and a small percentage of any sales I made from their photos for 1 year. After that I'd still retain the copyright and could continue selling them, but the models compensation would be complete.

    All of the sudden my phone was ringing off the hook from girls wanting to pose naked for free. I'd explain the deal to them and be very clear that there was no guarantee that they would make anything at all. That didn't disuade them at all. They just thought it would be fun.

    It turned out the market on ebay for nudes was already saturated by then so I wasn't able to sell any of the pics I took. So after about trying 3 photoshoots, I cancelled the other models cause it was kind of a waste of time for me.

    I just always thought it was funny that I couldn't give away photo sessions for family portraits, but then when I tried finding hot looking amateur models to pose nude for free I had so many responses I had to start turning them away. LOL

    I've seen so many gigs on Craigslist... maybe you can write up a contract and do the hiring with the paperwork.

    Bummer you couldn't get some cash for 'em on eBay. Any chance you still have the copy from the classifieds you used to find the amateurs? It must have been very well written to make them ok with doing it, especially for (nearly) free!

    Where were the ads placed?

    What are you going to do in the porn space that other people don't already do?
