Content Share

Content Share

MAKE YOUR OWN PORN, and SELL IT :-)

All the rage, Content Share is a great way to own and control your own material, but do it right!

The basic idea is simple - get together with other performers and make porn. Each of you gets the content you are in, and you can sell it to your fans.

AdultWork.com, Clips4Sale and various other sites are where you can put it to sell.

If 100 fans each pay 5 to see you in a scene, that's 500 for you :-)

If you did 4 scenes that day (and you can, people work hard on content days, and 4 scenes is BG, GG, BG, GG), then they could earn you 2000. Probably not immediately, but over a couple of months if you promote them on Twitter etc it soon mounts up.

Costs are low - at most you share the rent of an apartment to shoot in, and perhaps pay a guy to shoot/edit (but usually people keep it informal - a performer not in the scene does the filming, and everyone edits their own using free/cheap basic editing software).

RULE 1 - JUST SAY NO!

The point about content share isn't to say yes because people ask you, it's to say YES! when the content you'll get is the content you want and need. So BE PICKY.

STOP PRESS!!! I have created Content Share Models membership class.

  • Content Share Models have access to the list of Models who have ticked the "want to make own content" box in their model listing
  • The idea is that you can then contact any performers you'd like to work with and drop them a line.
  • If you are a Content Share Model you can see the panel on the front page. If you can't see the panel, ask me to add you.
    • Females - any woman can be a Content Share Model.
    • Trans - as Females.
    • Couples - if you have good feedback.
    • Males - only Friends of AIR can be Content Share Models. But that still doesn't mean you can bother the girls with requests.
  • If you DO NOT want to be a Content Share Model, but currently are one, just let me know.

AIR technical help

A lot of girls rely on their friend to do tech stuff - editing, uploading etc. This is poor business practice. You need to be in control of your business. None of it is hard and if you want to be taught, I can teach you everything you need to know about filming, editing and uploading in one day, (at least for the sort of simple clip/scene stuff that works on AdultWork). No charge, so long as my travel covered. FREE if it's done around a Content Share I'm involved with.

Why do it?

Fun and Money :-)

Fun - If it's not fun you shouldn't be doing it :-)

Money :-

  • Direct - make money direct by selling to your fans. Put your content up on AdultWork, MyDirtyHobby, Clips4Sale etc, then promote it hard via FaceBook (be careful) and Twitter (much better).
    • A lot of girls make £200-£300 a month from content, and some girls (who are very focussed on it, and who have built up huge fan bases over the years) make thousands.
  • Indirect - making content promotes your other services - as a model, as a cam girl or whatever.

How to do it right

1) Choose who you work with and what you do with them.

  • If you are setting up the Content Share, then YOUR DAY, YOUR RULES.
  • If you only want cute peeps, say so. And when the older ones contact you, just say "sorry, but you're not what I'm looking for for this material".
  • Know what YOU need from the day. Initially simple clips and scenes will do, but as you get experience and find what works, take charge. But for new girls, the following basic rules are worth keeping in mind :-)
    • JUST SAY NO to POV and TRIPODS, and "YOU and a TOG" sessions
    • TRIPODS - a single camera on a tripod gives utter crap results that are NO USE. ALWAYS have a third person hold the camera.
    • POV - Guys love making POV, but make them PAY for it. Most guys can't hold a camera still, and frame properly, while being blown / fucked. To be blunt, they are not really concentrating on the filming, and the results are generally crap in terms of your selling it. IF you want POV, make sure you see examples of the guys work first - you need to see good framing and a steady hand.
    • "YOU and a TOG" - for video, if you are new, just AVOID as it limits you to solo or tripod/pov. For STILLS it can be very effective but only do this for people whose work you like, not just any old amateur snapper.

    2) Do it REGULAR, and SERIOUSLY

    • You should do a day or two a month so that you can always be adding scenes.
    • By working with 2-3 other models and a long day, you should get several scenes from a session. Great value.
    • The more you add, the more money you make. New fans who find you in 6 months will pay for your new stuff, but also go back and get your old stuff :-)

    3) Document everything.

    • For EACH performer you work with you should a copy of two ID's (usually passport and driving licence) and a Model Release. If you don't, then your use of the material will be limited to sites that don't require documentation. (By the time everyone has every ones else paperwork there's a lot of signing to do!).
    • Sample text for a Model Release. "I.....name.....have taken part in a porn shoot, featuring real sex, and I am allowing that content to be sold or distributed however ......name.....wishes. I understand that the intention is for widespread distribution on the Internet, inc Twitter and free sites. I DO NOT expect my face or identity to be hidden in any way. If this causes issues for me in the future, I accept that risk and have no comeback".
    • Everyone should also sign a Content Share Agreement. This states who has what rights to what scenes and saves arguments later. The TOG should NOT get any rights, or if they do, those should be very limited. E.g. He shoots 4 BG scenes. Rights to put just ONE on AW should be reward enough.

    How to take part in a Content Share

    • Look out for Events listed on AIR.
    • Contact models you'd like to work with and ask if they want Content Share with you.

    How to Organise a Content Share Day

    • Decide on a Date and Location and in Add Content, create Event.
    • For your first one, keep it simple, hold it at your house and use simple rules such as "Girls, get rights in everything they are in, guys get none".
    • Generally people are NOT willing to pay towards a studio or good location.
    • Video camera, lights, etc. You will need someone to do the filming. If none of the perfomers have the kit, you might get a volunteer from AIR. If not a volunteer, a lot of guys will do it for 100 quid or so, (covers their petrol, food etc), or some limited rights sufficient for them to make that kind of money from them, (e.g. one threesome scene).

    Guidelines for a good day :-

    1) Not too many people.

    • 4-5 is perfect for twosomes and threesomes.
    • In fact two girls in a house with volunteer cameraman/stud can have a very productive day - scenes in Living room, kitchen, shower, bedroom 1, bedroom 2, and repeat with "slut" theme, "audition" theme and "sub/dom". That's a two day session :-)
    • But if you have 6-7 people then it's crowded and lots of people do too much sitting around. Not productive unless Group Sex or Party Scenes are what all the performers want.

    2) Expect, and plan for, a LONG day.

    • Because people are doing this for their own benefit I find that people tend to want to get as much as possible done.
    • Being able to offer overnight accom (even if just space for a sleeping bag) is useful as it allows people to come from further away.

    3) Plenty of Notice

    • People are busy - 4-6 weeks notice is best, though if you suddenly have a day free or venue access at short notice, always worth a try.

    4) Be sure that your cameraman is reliable.

    • In particular he should be clear about delivery terms - how will he get the stuff to the models?
    • Raw video files are very large, too big for DVD disks. Raw video runs at about 12GB per hour. So if I have 5 scenes from one performer, and each is about 30mins, that 2 1/2/ hours, about 30GB.
    • My terms are "I will create an unedited Windows Media File that I upload to my server and you then need to download. If you want raw footage, you need to give me one or more USB sticks which are 16GB or bigger, plus padded SAE. The USB stick must not contain anything you want to keep - for technical reasons I might need to format it, which will wipe everything, even protected files. OR you can give me a portable USB external hard drive, plus padded SAE". Then I go away with a copy of the Content Share Agreement so that I can send the right stuff to the right people, usually within a week or so.

    Info for Studs, Producers etc

    • DO NOT cold contact girls seeking Content Share. Doing so is a sackable offence.
    • If you want to work on CS basis, you can ONLY respond to posts by girls seeking people, OR you can set up your own CS event and see if you get any takers.
    • Producers - well I think you should PAY performers, but CS is reasonable if you only require limited rights - e.g. in one scene. That way you'll get your expenses covered.

    Content Share Register

    • Shooters - have been recommended by a MODEL as doing the right thing re Content Share. (Models, just suggest Shooters by leaving a comment below). If you are a shooter with good comments, drop me a line with your desired text.
    • Models - keen on Content Share and welcome contacts by other models (including, where indicated, studs) with a view to organising something. NOT to be contacted by shooters as these models either have shooters or know how to pick them. Drop me a line with your desired text.

        Paul Jones - aka AIR Admin

        Happy to perform, and love to be asked :-) As a shooter, I bring camera, lights etc. Does not require any rights, just a few stills. No charge for Midlands, Central, Bristol, West/Central London shoots, may want petrol for North, Kent, East Anglia. Delivery - RAW / HD renders if given BIG Flash drive and SAE, otherwise (and more normally) rendered to medium grade Windows Media Files, and made available for download on my server. I do basic edits - into scenes for AW rental, and a chopped into clips for AW clips.

        I also have access to a flat in Gloucester which can be great for shoots

        Morph

        I've been shooting now since 2006 and I'm always happy to do content share shoots. I'm happy to do content share shoots where all parties get the content from the shoot or more exclusive content share shoots, ie: I shoot a scene just for use in return for a scene just for my use etc.
        I don't travel so any shoots will need to be in the West Midlands so that I can get to the apartment/hotel via taxi as I don't drive and can't carry all my equipment on a train or bus.
        If you bring a laptop with you then you can take the content away on the day of the shoot. Otherwise I will get it to you no later than 1 week after the shoot. I'm happy to edit the content and upload it for you to download or I can post raw files on a disc.

        I can provide many references and I have never failed to send someone their content.

        I'm happy to shoot solo, G/G, B/G, Threesome etc through to fetish content.

        West Sussex based and highly experienced photographer who thirty years ago was shooting fashion and editorial model folios for Select Agency in London. Nowadays I shoot mainly commercial advertising, (which needs models from time to time). I've got to that stage in my life where I don't pay models unless someone else is paying me to do so. I keep the studio busy by shooting stills content share and offering the studio for hire at ridiculously cheap rates - regular contract hirers get it for just £7 per hour! It's basic, but it's warm and dry and there's always free tea, coffee and chocolate biscuits, plus the landlord is completely understanding and even lends me brand new motor bikes for photo shoots. I have an absolutely awesome digital manipulation lady who can turn ordinary stills into total works of art - see http://www.bdfoto.co.uk/editing.htm

simonbuttler's picture

Hi guys, I shoot upto 4K Ultra HD (x4 times the resolution of full HD 1080p).

For most content shares, everyone gets 1080p (Full HD) rushes off me within 2-3 days of the shoot via internet download. If you want 4K UHD files, you would need to give me a large USB Stick and £10 to cover p&p via special delivery. Alternatively, I can compress the rushes slightly to send via internet download.

I mainly shoot soft stuff which can be shot inbetween harder scenes.

Genres I shoot for are Downblouse, Upskirt, slow motion, voyeuristic, reality (talking to camera), jerk off instruction (generally talking dirty to camera), dancing / striptease, erotic readings from a book,

Filming locations:

(in order most shot from)
Bournemouth, Southampton, Portsmouth, Winchester, Basingstoke, Reading, Aldershot, Andover

(occasional)
South West London - Kensington, Hammersmith, Victoria, Wimbledon,
Other London locations considered.
