In an industry which seems to be in decline, you wouldn’t think being a porn filmmaker would be a job that people want to get into, let alone train to do.

But the Erotic Film School is offering course that is proving this whole theory wrong.

The guys at Elite Daily took a look around the school in San Francisco, where former BDSM porn star Madison Young is teaching wannabe porn filmmakers the craft in an annual three-day intensive hands-on course.

The program is now in its second year, with a curriculum covering the usual sort of film aspects including script writing, lighting, editing etc.

Students also have the chance to work with industry models and get involved in guest lectures with industry professionals.

But that isn’t what its all entirely about, as Young explains to Elite Daily:

The more important things for me are empowering them and talking about what their vision is. What values they want to bring into their filmmaking. How to hold space for a model that is going to be having sex in front of their camera.

By employing this technique, they’re hoping to create a comfortable atmosphere for performers and most importantly capture passionate, authentic sex.

As part of the program, Young tries to encourage individuality with her students and allow them to document their own sexual revolutions.

But be warned, before you hop on a plane and head over there to give it a go, you might want to know that the whole application process is pretty competitive to say the least.

The number of students who can get involved are quite limited and you must be able to explain why you’re interested in creating porn films and also what kind of messages you want to send in your films.

But above all else, they want you to show that you can handle the stigma related to the industry, another reason why Young felt the need to lead this program.

She added:

We’re able to dismantle this stigma and shame around sexuality by developing this community of people who are feeling more empowered and have more skills to pick up the camera and make their own thing happen.

Isn’t it about time that the adult film industry was looked at it in a different light?
