SAN FRANCISCO, CA – MARCH 13TH, 14TH, AND 15TH 2015

SAN FRANCISCO CA
This March San Francisco will be experiencing a first of it’s kind. Award winning filmmaker and feminist pornographer, Madison Young, is bringing the first ever 3 Day Erotic Film School to San Francisco.
Erotic Film School is a 3 Day Erotic Filmmaking Training Program lead by Madison Young. In this intensive weekend experience a group of students will study erotic filmmaking while gaining hands on erotic filmmaking experience with industry professionals in the indie porn mecca of San Francisco California on March 13th, 14th, and 15th at the Center for Sex and Culture (1349 Mission Street).
The 3 day weekend program is broken down into
1. Pre-production (including casting,creating a budget,writing a script and model negotiations)
2. Production (shooting a scene, working with models, how to operate equipment)
3. Post-production (video editing, marketing, distribution)
Each day will be broken down into a series of presentations, hands on experience in which students will work on creating their own collaborative erotic film with their fellow students, panels and Q&A with industry professional performers, editors, directors and distributors as well as field trips to the set of a professional porn shoot.
The 3 day training will conclude with a networking meet and greet celebration with local erotic filmmakers, performers, and producers in which students will be screening their collaboratively made short erotic film and EFS will be awarding certificates of completion to students who attend the full training.
Training facilitator, Madison Young, says of the Erotic Film School, “We are at a really exciting moment in film history. A moment in history where erotic film and pornography are being examined and valued for their cultural and social impact. We have greater access than ever to technology and equipment to create film and tell our stories. With Erotic Film School we are bringing together a new generation of erotic filmmakers, artists, activists, sexual revolutionaries, visionaries and students so that we might create together and learn together.”
Young’s Erotic Film School is putting into practice the lessons she has learned over the past decade of directing over 40 erotic films as well as the many topics that she addresses in her soon to be released book The DIY Porn Handbook: Documenting Our Sexual Revolution which will be published through Greenery Press in late 2015.
