Happy New Year to you all. I hope your year is filled with love, happiness and creative times.
I have promised myself that I will write more regular blog posts…you must all be sick of hearing about how slack I am in this regard!
Until I return to teaching at Uni this year, I have a whole 2 months that I can power on with my own film work. I also decided to do less teaching this year so that I can concentrate on filmmaking.
As stated in my last post I have been working on a new documentary entitled “Doing it Her way.”, which is exploring the rise of feminist porn here in Australia and overseas too. I actually filmed some of it while I was in Berlin in 2009. At this stage I have been doing interviews with some of the amazing Australian women making great erotica/porn.
The motivation to return to this project came after heated discussion with a student about women in pornography. Yet again this cliche idea of women being victims within this industry came up, and I listened to stereotype after stereotype about what sort of women work in the adult industry. So to that student, you know who you are, I’m not mentioning your name here as I know you have a desire for a political career and I’m sure being mentioned on a blog that talks about porn is not the type of publicity you would like!
Til next post.
