I have seen some of your work, loved it! I wonder: what kind of videos are your interested in producing? Does the female always have to loose, can she win, can it be tight? FvsF ? FvsM ? Do you do customs or sponsored videos? I always felt that there is such a big room for content out there, and much seems to go always one way … it is always great to see someone creative trying to do something a bit different!

A couple of my films have dual endings. I am not sure what kind I like producing, I tend to just male whatever feels right at that time. I don’t mind if the heroine wins by any means. I have done customs, never a sponsored video. I tend to not do many customs for the fear I can’t deliver on what that person is interested in.

I will try to make future films have alternative endings to please both audiences.

How well do transformation videos sell? I’ve never been big on the peril but love the idea of the heroine discovering her powers and costume and getting aroused by said transformation.

Also, why don’t more japanese heroines make it into videos, i.e. sailor moon? High boots, short skirt, seems like a good fit

Damein, I just want to say I support your works and whatever you have planned for the next uninvited, just listen to your heart and do whatever you think it is right! All of us, the fetishs, have different opinions and if you try to accommodate our request, I don’t think it will work. I sent you a personal email regarding what we can do after the uninvited 2.

Keep it up man!

Have you worked with anyone in next global crisis before? How do they train their actresses? The choreography and acting is always incredibly well done

Shall weigh in having done so.

There’s no magic formula – NGC use trained actresses for the most part, rather than models.

I forgot to add, is coaching the actress something that is done as well if needed? Do the actresses dislike being told how to react? Like do you ever have to tell an actress a low blow should hurt more than that, or the belly punch she received should definitely knock all the wind out of her so her moan should be harder than that. Or do you just accept how the actress sells the blows and move along. Some videos I watch I wonder how the director let that scene go by without having the actress sell it better,… Read more »

Hey Damien. Im really glad you’re doing this. Very insightful. Ive thought about throwing my hat in the ring myself. And this definitely makes me feel more comfortable in trying so. I just have to ask, how do the models normally react to being informed about the content of “peril elements” in the video? Like “Hey you’re basically gonna be receiving a ton of stomach punches, and you’re gonna be hit in the crotch quite a bit too.” Is it something they already expect. Are any weirded out or uncomfortable with that? In your first scarlet fox video the final… Read more »

Hey Damien, Is there a reason why most producers lean heavily toward more “magical” villains and super powered heroines as opposed to a gang of thugs and a normal human crime fighter (like a batgirl, cat woman, etc)? I’ve noticed it’s mainly a demon/monster/guy with some magic depowering rock or super juice against supergirl/Wonder Woman clone of some sort. Is that what keeps drawing sales? I’ve been hoping for some batgirl-like video where the heroine is just a normal human being who takes a few punches here and there and eventually out of exhaustion or a hard hit, gets overwhelmed… Read more »

Not a question, just want to thank Damian, so many deep and insightful answers to a wide variety of questions. Thanks for taking the time to provide such rich responses. I have certainly learned a lot!

I’m not sure if this is a little late now, but I have a couple of things I’d like to say/enquire about. One is of a personal nature, in response to your personal declaration. In your story I see some of my own – it was the original Batman series which engendered my fetish, and Batgirl’s purple original costume remains my favourite costume today. I was also drawn to Supergirl at a young age, and to catsuits. My sexual preference has remained the same – I pretty much only get off on Superheroine related content or ideas, although lesbian stuff… Read more »

I think being a fetishist limits the dating pool definetly. While some women may get off on this genre most don’t have such specific interest, allowing for the ability to be more fluid in their sexuality. I think any male fetishist is mostly living in a very concrete world sexually and there isn’t much give to changing that. I think a lot of heterosexual women can be very accommodating to their male partners sexual interest, but if you are with someone who doesn’t humor it I can’t imagine that relationship could ever be furfilling in the long term. I think… Read more »

Damien, Out of curiosity, is the superheroine fetish involved in your sex life (like Alan’s)? Or is it a pure business thing? If it’s not involved would you want it to be?

Alan Jones

Thanks alot for taking the time to reply Damien. I get what you say with the guilt – I struggle with that, especially immediately afterwards sometimes. A form of shame, and wishing, to be honest, that I didnt have a specific fetish. But I agree that the superheroine one is easier – essentially it engages with ideas of domination and submission, which are pretty mainstream, and overtly sexy costumes normalised even more so recently by incarnations of Black Widow, Catwoman, Wonder Woman etc. I did get close to someone recently – on a level of friendship with an expectation of… Read more »

Wow Alan, whatever problems you have I’d say fix it lol. It’s extremely rare to find any girl who’s willing to bring the superheroine fetish in the bedroom. What’s the other 5-6 costumes out of curiosity

Haha perhaps, and it is easy to forget that sometimes. But I’m looking for exactly the right thing, and at that point in a time in a committed relationship where doubt creeps in and the big questions are asked.

Silk spectre, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Catwoman, and a Flash esq one.

I honestly think the biggest problem with this genre is how fast a heroine is stripped of her costume and sex happens. I feel once the costume disappears the story might as well go into the toilet I get that in the end it is an adult film but I just feel it is dumb to even make a all powerful heroine into a normal girl in terms of removing a costume and just fucking her. Force a heroine to beat up her best friend Force her to kneel and submit to the evil doer make her do things she… Read more »

Things I look for in a heroine film: 1. Heroine vs villainess. 2. If the heroine costume includes a skirt which I prefer for Supergirl-esque type characters, the panties should match the color and material of the costume (no cotton or lace K-mart panties the model happens to have on the day of the shoot). 3. Full heroine attire depending on the traditional character, e.g. skirt, boots, cape, gloves, etc. A great example of preference number’s 2 & 3 is “Sleeperkidsworld: The Bats Gonna Hit The Fan” with Tracy Jordan. where the villainess manages to strip Batgirl of her costume… Read more »

Oops sorry, the opportunity to voice my preferences to a producer was too tempting and I forgot to ask my question.

So now that you know me a little, do any of my suggestions for heroine films posted above appeal to you?

are any of you’re videos going to be on dvd?

Do you also draw and do flash animations?

Hi Damien
I am looking forward to Uninvited 2 and I was glad to have contributed.

As far as something new or done better in the genre. We have too many Wonder Woman/ Supergirl movies that are not done to well or too often.
Just a thought. I was hoping to see more Star Trek( TOS uniforms) or maybe Buck Rodgers (Erin Grey season 2 uniform). Tentacles or something else from the sci fi realm would be nice. Akiba-web seems to be doing good with that stuff.
Thanks for more making quality films that stand above the rest.

Hi Damien

Do you talk openly with friends and family about this side of your work? Has it ever raised any eyebrows, or worse?

deathrider avatar

Hello Damien, this whole fetish thing I’m seeing it everywhere now and its quite boring to be honest. In fact I find it a bit degrading. I would prefer it if you were going to incorporate perils into it make the women strong. Girl Power and then incorporate the peril into it.

I noticed on http://www.heroinearena.com they made a film called Thorn which displays just that. Are you going to start making films like this? You are giving the female the tough leading role equal to a male.

Hi Damien

Really interesting post, thanks for your insight. I wonder if you have an interest in producing PG films, and if not what the reasons are. I often find that acting is higher quality in pg films which means it feels more like actually watching superheroines rather than porn stars. From a selfish perspective I also get nothing from the x rated element but i think im in a minority.

Thanks.

@Damien, I just wonder if you can bring Supra Girl back. I’d write a custom script for her in two heart beats! 🙂

Thanks so much for providing insight on what to me has been virtually a black box as it relates to the genre. I have a much greater understanding, not to mention appreciation, of the hard work you guys put it against what seems to be an inordinate amount of risk. I have two questions for you if you don’t mind me asking: 1) You mentioned that your sales have slowed down considerable these days compared to the earlier times of 2012. I’m curious to know why you think that is. Specifically why do you think things were good in 2012… Read more »

Sugarcoater avatar

Forgive this idea in case it’s entirely unfeasible, but what about trying–just one time–this concept: Instead of payment (beyond meal and transportation), what about offering contract-wise a percent of each sale to those producing. For example, instead of giving the model $1000, offer her 25% of all the sales. For the extras, give them 5% or so. These figures are just off the top of my head and I have no idea if they are fair. But my concept would be to have the buy-in of all participants to both give their best and to hype the movie. I see… Read more »

Hey Damien,
I am curious if there will be a follow up to pentacle after its conclusion or will that be the last we see of Eiona? I love the character and while I hope her story ends in a devastating defeat are there any plans to continue the character??

Great work. What’s your favorite sh film not my you? Also, any plans for more films with Miss CJ? She’s awesome as Scarlet Fox and makes the mask hers.

Hey Damien, big interest in your movies. I’d like to have a few requests: – For your hi-leg leotard and bare legs superheroines, I’d like to see spinning transformations from their civilian identities to their costumed ones. I’m a big fan of the old Lynda Carter WW show. – I’d like the girls to win over the bad guys. I love superheroine vid for their sexy costumes and the fight scenes, but I’d like to see them triumph over the bad guys. My experience with GIGA videos always bring me down with the girl loses, sometimes humiliatingly. – This one… Read more »

You mentioned working towards better (or maybe, more complete?) storylines and I was wondering how these stories come to you in the first place?
Do you find your stories emanate from some kind of “catalyst” or are you one of those gifted individuals who can just pull a story (or at least a premise to base a story on) out of thin air?
Personally, I’ve written a few stories myself but find myself lately envisioning singular scenes.
Anyway, just curious how others come across these things.

As a guy who has thought about getting into the business time and again, I am really curious about the return on investment niche films bring in. Since you do most of the work yourself I imagine (camera, editing, etc), what do you budget for a film and what kind of volume do you move?

No biggie if you don’t want to divulge that info, though.

Yay a fellow chicagoan. i didnt know there were producers out here. I guess my question would be: how did you find your first actress/model?

I don;t mind if the heroine loses quickly if she is not looking like she is really being violated and not just inconvenienced. Too many times it is like well no big deal that he is taking me against my will. It makes her lose the heroine persona and makes her look like a porn star in costume.

Rover

Funny, I am also not really able to appreciate porn without the superheroine thing, including what is essentially porn with costumes. I enjoy the emotional peril of a film. Supwrheroine films just represent that particularly well; because you’re dealing with characters not used to being victims. The more gradually the tables turn, the better in my opinion. The major flaw many films make recently is just throwing the heroine into rag doll mode too quickly. Just my comment, not a question. :p Keep it up.

Darklord

I agree wholeheartedly! The best part of a heroine movie is the transition from advantage heroine to advantage villain. The clips that have sudden weaknesses due to kryptonite, or a chloro rag or one low blow are the worst in my eyes. It’s not as if it has to be slow or drawn out, but it helps. Also I enjoy a cleverly laid trap, or a slow realization by the heroine coming to grips that she’s doomed. This isn’t done well or enough by most producers. One other element that’s hard to articulate is “tone”. Something about old school SHC… Read more »

First: what happened to Brit? I always liked her stuff.

Second: As a fellow Chicagoan, I have to ask – Cubs fan or Sox fan?
