Q+A with Damien Woods
I’ve been trying to get a fresh start with multiple things in my life with the beginning of this new year and my professional life as a director of heroine content is one of them. I would like to try and make as many quality films this year that is possible.
But I would also like to develop a better relationship with my audience as well. Lately it seems like our community doesn’t talk as much as it use too and I would like to bring back some of the fun that I felt with this genre from nearly half a decade ago.
So I figured maybe that this conversation could start with a Q+A. I can try to be as open, candid and honest as possible with any questions you guys may have when it comes to the other side of the business.
But first I suppose let me introduce/reintroduce myself to you guys for the sake of context and clarity.
My name is Damien Woods (that is a stage name btw). I am a 30 year old Chicagoan. I began making heroine content back in 2008/2009 when I was around 22 years old (Uninvited was my first film). After that I took a temporary exit from the business to finish college, then returned around 2011-2012.
I have been into this genre for as long as I can remember. As a child I often watched Wonder Woman reruns as well as Batman (1960s) and I think it scrambled my brains.
For as long as I can remember a part of me wanted to make this kind of content. As a kid I use to draw comic books where superheroes would get stripped of their costumes and humiliated. (I hope no one found that shit, now that I think about it…)
I think I am a true fetishist in every sense of the word. I have never been a big fan of pornography in general unless it was related to superheroines. It’s built into my blood.
Ultimately I made the plunge to make a film in my early 20s. I was an avid consumer of the genre back when there was only like 2-3 producers on the net making this kind of work. After learning how to use a camera I had the audacity to throw my hat in the ring. It was a slow start for me though, while Uninvited eventually became a cult classic it had slow origins. I released the film without much ability to find a target market, it took months for sales to pick up. By the time it started to make a profit my focus was once again on school.
Feel free to ask anything. Hopefully we can get a conversation going. If not, I hope to bring you some fresh and original content this year. I wanna try new things and shake this genre up a little bit if that’s even possible.
