I am a camera operator for VR porn. Ask me anything.
Here are some preliminary answers;
1. Yes I have gotten boners on set. Only twice, both were scenes involving Abella Danger.
2. I have been doing this for a year and a half.
3. I make 65,000 a year.
4. I got into this industry through contacts, friends of friends going all the way back to film school.
5. I work with both Go-Pros (for 360 scenes) and DSLR's for narrower 180 or 220 scenes.
6. VR stands for Virtual Reality; aka Oculus Rift, GearVR and Vive.
7. I blacked out the rigs as they are unique designs from the studio i work for.
8. I have done AMA's on here before so some pictures may be repeats.
nope. it's actually quite mechanical and professional. camera rolls, they fuck, director says cut, they stop and goes back to chatting about how to get the perfect position.
well, i dont actually hold it. VR cameras are framed, set and left alone. But other wise, i get paid for it?
Once or twice there are girls who come on set high. they usually get flushed out of the industry pretty quickly. Guys are pretty much 100% of the time on boner pills.
yes and no. you cant just grope them, if you worked with the same girl multiple times, and are friendly, they will be friendly back. and if they find you attractive, they may hook up with you. but never on set.
well. not exactly a "star" more of a newer girl.
Where can we expect this VR porn?
Any rough 360 degree video samples?
What resolutions are you doing at what frame rates?
I'm more interested in the VR than the porn, I spent my teens and early 20's jerking off, I'm done for the most part. But maybe VR porn is hotter? What kind of feedback are you getting, and what do you think of VR porn? Is it really going to be an industry changer?
well. i shot this one scene where 2 girls fucked this one guy. after he came, they swapped cum back and forth with spit and all. then when the scene ended, the guy sat up and deep frenched both girls. his own cum and all.
was pretty nasty.
Also, is this stereoscopic 3d porn VR, as in there's depth perception and everything, or is it just large field 360 degree video? I'm really curious how VR is implemented in this.
-VirtualRealPorn, HologirlsVR, BaDoink, NaughtyAmerica, KinkedVR.
-360 is kinda rare, its a lot more technically challenging so right now theres only a few sites with them. Hologirls and VirtualRealPorn.
-Depends on device, it ranges from 4k by 2k, 3.8k by 3.8k down to 1920 by 960. Either side to side or top under format. Frame rates always 60.
-Poeple really love POV in VR. and yes i do believe so. Porn always pushes technology.
no my dick is not as big as these guys. plus you gotta be in real shape to fuck for 30-50 minutes straight. I am not, at least not endurance or lung capacity wise.
stereoscopic. its reaaaally complicated this shit. theres minimal focal distance on both eyes, lens distortion, scaling is a big issue, as well sense of distance is distorted.
actually, i started in real film. worked on everything from commercials to tv shows to movies. prefer film. less ego and less hours.
- PA's clean them with cleaning products. Most locations are rentals so the furniture belongs to some one. As well we hire cleaners after. I cant speak for all studios but thats what we do.
- Not landed, but I have stepped on them several times. As well as clean them off the camera.
- I dont care. it's just fluids. I make my own afterall.
You're on the cutting edge of VR, everyone knows that porn lelads the way in computer tech, from internet to CD-ROM to DVD, HD and so on. Be prepared to start banking a lot more than you are now just because you were doing commercial VR video early. Congrats on your good fortune as well.
its mostly because she genuinely enjoyed it. that girl is actually a nymph i think. she would walk around hours before even her call time, in her underwear or naked, just masturbating in random parts of the set. and when she fucks, she fucks for real, gets all sweaty and worked up. thats what turns me on i guess. most of the other girls are thinking about how they might look on camera, trying to keep sexy or poised. she just rides the dick.
Thank you! I am very looking forward to reversing back to film and start doing VR movies. Horror to start i hope.
oh they have no fucking idea. my family are ultra conservatives. they think im still a regular camera op on regular film sets.
yeah every 3-4 months we travel to either LA, Miami or Vegas and do days of intensive shooting. Usually either AirBnB a big house for the crew or hotels. I went to the AVN awards last year in Vegas, that was pretty kickass. got all access backstage pass too.
I feel you on that. It's why I prefer amateur stuff over professional porn, it solid turns me off to see a chick look at the camera and you can see her fake ass expression. At the same time pro porn stars who actually get into it and are real about can be hot as fuck.
I've always found it weird how huge the industry for fake as porn is, that there's that many dudes who just can't tell or don't care. Says a lot about humanity.
its just cialis and viagra. some of them use a pump to look bigger for the day. i know one guy uses needles to inject his dick.
no. but then i dont work with amateur scenes. so i cant speak for that side of the industry. most guys on my sets are pros; Manuel Ferrara, Charles Dera, Mick Blue and so on. Those guys go on for like an hour straight.
oh my bad.
Yes she noticed, though we're kinda friendly at this point. but no, she's strictly into the super muscular physique and hung like a horse kind of guys. but she teases here and there, grabs my crotch and all that. all in good fun only i can tell.
most famous would be Riley Reed, Joanna Angel, Romi Rain and Gianna Michaels.
You seem like a cool guy OP. I feel like we could be friends in real life. I wish you all the best and I actualy kinda envy you. I like crazy shit, and you are smack dab in the middle of it.
Dude, my question is more about the area than your profession itself.
I'm 21 yo and just left law school to study film. My will is to be a movie director, but I don't fucking know where to start from. I currently live in europe (italy), I have no experience in filmmaking but it is my real passion. Where do I start from? I heard it would be good to make an internship, but where? How do I get this? All I have is my highschool diploma, since college wasn't finished.
Thank you m8! pic unrelated
ones that utilizes phones. like GearVR and whatever Google is developing. More people have phones and they can all handle H265 these days than those who can afford thousand dollar set ups on a computer.
its the rig. already answered.
thanks for your answers, man
any fun moment ? or do they prank ?
(I don't have any related pics to post, so, have some bicycle)
thank you very much man. i appreciate it.
dont start as a director. that is a big mistake. start from being a PA or a Grip/Gaffer. trust me,the industry can tell that you did the work. that you've been a crew and know what each department needs. a conductor of an orchestra has to know every instrument, he may not be a master at it, but he has to know them to be able to lead them. same idea. get any gigs you can as lighting and PA. and any money you have, make indie films with everyone and submit them to any festivals that will take it.
eventually, you will get steady contracts and then decide if you want to union or not. Dont fret if you have no work, it took me 4 years to get my first official film work as an Art Assistant on a big budget movie.
yeah its lots of fun. lots of work and stress at times, but its fun because no one has an ego. its hard to be serious when everyone is naked all the time. especially the male talents, real bros and crack jokes all the time at each others expenses. some girls are a bit diva-ish but its rare. After all, in 20 minutes theyre gonna take a dick up the ass so they cant really hold their noses too high for too long.
Yhivi and Brett Rossi
thanks for answering, man!
and where do I look for those jobs? do I need to go to a film school in order to get them and submit for an internship, or should I just apply for them?
also, what does PA stands for? (not native english speaker, sorry)
well, in comparison to everyone else yeah. keep in mind i am 6ft 2 so... its only proportionally small. i mean hell i just filmed a bunch of scenes with Small Hands. he's 5'9 and his dick is like at least 8inches and as thick as a beer bottle.
most of the time they are. you can tell by how long the shot stayed uncut before she squirted. usually girls can hold at best 30 seconds before it starts leaking. if they suddenly just cut to the squirting, its fake.
only shit bags wind up in porn, so you are failing
instead of having a real show biz job at cbs in studio city you are bottom feeding with shitbags
do you think it is funny that some of those porn skanks think they are real actresses
Some of the worst bait I've read.
Come on, anon. Do better.
/b/'s dying, pull your weight.
the other way around.
i would say yes, it also depends on the school and the connections you make. your classmates and instructors are valueable resources once you graduate. PA means Production Assistant. Lowest of the ranks, you run coffee, you do paper work, you guard the set, you ward off random people. but what happens is, if you do a good job and be really helpful all the time, the Assistant Director will remember you and keep calling you back. Getting you repeat gigs, and eventually you will have a good lunch break where you're talking to someone from an other department, become friends and they might bring you on as their assistant. Etc. Etc.
Not scenes that are solely footjobs, but as part of it yes. nothing special, girl just jerks the guy off a bit with her feet.
okay theres no way for me to say this without sounding pretentious but trust me i am not trying to be. The thing is, with VR in porn, it is such a new aspect of the industry and so highly invested, no studio will take on amateurs yet. they want to have a good base of scenes that are with all pros because the chance of something going wrong during the shoot becomes significantly less if the girl is a pro. VR porn is much MUCH harder to shoot than regular porn.
What are your thoughts on Carl Brutananadilewski?
Alright guys, I have 5 more pictures including this one. so that means I will answer 5 more batches of questions and then i am out and off to bed.
Madison Ivy though shes retired, and Jynx Maze cause I heard shes a real freak.
nope. i dont download i just stream.
yes, plus competitor sites. studio pays for it all.
i go to where everyone else go to, xvideo, pornhub..etc. etc.
Do you think the difficulty affects the actors performance? As in there's less freedom to move around and change positions? Or is the rigging set up in such a way as to give them the freedom to "express their art"?
gotcha, although i'd much prefer amateurs than pros in vr, but i guess the average viewers differ.
another question, does your job desensitize you in things like women, sex, etc?
How often do you work in a week and how long? What is you favorite porn tags (milf,three-way,lesbians)
yes definitely. in VR POV scenes, the guy cant move. his hands are off the scene as the viewer is pretending to be him. so u cant just have phantom moving limbs. As well he sometimes cant even look at the girl since the camera is inches above his face. The girls have a harder time too, they gotta do all the work and only really has like 4 positions they can do while the guy is laying on his back flat and cant move at all.
i was told she likes to stick things up her ass to stretch them and sometimes ask the crew to help. she apparently also likes to make others taste her finger after playing with her pussy. by others i mean crew and cast.
perfume. the girls use an unreasonable amount of douches before a scene starts, we call it "girly stuff". same with anal, they do an enema the night before and the morning off before the scene.
depends, if you want 360 stereoscopic, u need at least 12 go pros. if you want to shoot 180, or a pair of DSLRs with ultra wide fisheye lenses.
plus Binaural audio mics and a mixer that can handle 4-12 channels.
This is probably an odd one, skip if you don't know, but where do endowed actresses get their lingerie? My girl is a 40 DDD and has a hard time finding stuff that fits.
Loved this AMA, thanks for doing it.
nope and no.
yeah its harder to get into a relationship. ppl immediately think i am a pervert cause i make porn. frankly, i stare at hot girls a lot less since i started this job haha.
VR? about 2 hours. hour and a half of prep and set up, framing and blocking with the performers step by step. and 30 minutes of shooting.
it desensitize me to nudity. but i still find attractive woman attractive. i just dont stare at them or fantasize about them as i use to. but sex is still sex.
5-6 days a week. about 10 hr days. i dont really have one, ive been pretty into hentai lately actually.
You've answered all my questions satisfactorily, but I have one final one.
Are you working on any VR that allows you to move around the actress and view her from different angles? I ask because I imagine something like that would be extremely difficult but also fucking awesome to pull off successfully.
here are the questions for your answers
1. Have you ever gotten hard thinking about the male actors?
>Yes I have gotten boners on set. Only twice, both were scenes involving Abella Danger.
2. How long have you been eating your own shit?
>I have been doing this for a year and a half.
3. How many ear-wax voodoo dolls do you make each year?
>I make 65,000 a year.
4. Do you have any friends? Because it seems like your a loser no one wants to hang around
>I got into this industry through contacts, friends of friends going all the way back to film school.
5. What do you use to make your dick work?
>I work with both Go-Pros (for 360 scenes) and DSLR's for narrower 180 or 220 scenes.
6. What does RV stand for?
>VR stands for Virtual Reality; aka Oculus Rift, GearVR and Vive.
How far do you take auto-erotic masturbation?
>I blacked out the rigs as they are unique designs from the studio i work for.
8. Why do you think we care?
>I have done AMA's on here before so some pictures may be repeats.
1 more picture left guys. so 1 more batch of questions after this one.
no idea sorry :(
10 hours average.
not yet. because people get nauseous easily when VR is in motion. we're still working on it, so far its just through fade in and outs. it is much harder due to something called a Parallax line. anything crossing those in motion is a nightmare to edit.
hey bro! thanks or replying
I'm looking for any kind of film studio, I don't really care what to start with
I live in Milano. Do you have any idea of where should I look for it?
No more questions, this has been one of the best AMA's on /b/ in a long time. VR porn is an interesting subject that I've ben wondering about and you just cleared up most of my questions. Thank you for this and please come back in the future. Take care of yoursself out there, /b/ro.
Alright, this is the last batch. been fun, hope the info has been helpful or at least interesting. off to bed. cheers!
yes. well, seeing a naked dude never really bothered me before but now i definitely dont care.
if you need to stay in europe, probably netherlands? other wise, go to the US or Canada. lots of porn studios there.
Alice no Takarabako
nope. they dont care. theyre pornsars.
dont care, either is okay and nope.
just straight and les so far. will prob have to do gay scenes eventually. big market.
might be off topic, but as a guy, whats the best way to get into porn as an actor? contacting studios, or starting something myself?
and big do you really have to be to get any jobs?
Hi OP! I'm a fairly succesful camgirl and I'm interested on the impact that VR is going to have on my industry in the coming years. I was wondering, are the setups becoming practical for 1 person, from a mechanical and fanancial standpoint or are we likely to see a shift towards professional cam studios/brothels?
>a conductor of an orchestra has to know every instrument
This is actually true
You can get a degree as a conductor but part of the degree is learning how to play every instrument in the orchestra at least a little bit
It's nearly impossible to get on stage in front of a real symphony until you play with and conduct smaller ensembles, also work as assistant for other conductors
Yeah, frenching two women is gay just because they swallowed your own sperm. Let's ignore that you've just been soaking in all kinds of bodily fluids during sex, the merest hint of sperm makes you a faggot...
