1. Describe your videos for those who haven’t seen them yet.
Our D&E videos are very eclectic and what I mean about eclectic is that we try to have different storylines, scenarios and themes. Our themed videos vary from fetish to twink videos, our niche is that we don’t have a niche and we try to appeal to many different groups with different tastes, currently we are calling our style of videos Gay Gonzo.
2. How did you get your start in producing amateur videos?
I started by watching Bobby Garcia videos and All Words Videos. I thought if Bobby Garcia could do this why can’t I. You can say that Bobby Garcia and All Worlds Videos inspired me. I came up with the idea while I was in class learning to build websites. My classmate and I were talking and his goal was to build adult websites. When I came home from school and I was talking to my partner Eddie about going into the adult video business he thought I was crazy at first. We checked out the laws and studied the business, asked questions to other producers, watched 100′s of videos and did a complete cost of what it will take to do a business like this. Although we did not leave our full time jobs we started very slow and began production in 2001.
3. What’s the best thing about it?
Now the best thing is that after all the struggles of starting a new business and learning the business from ground up, we were able to become independent and leave our full time jobs and do this full time and know that people are purchasing our videos and renting them and really enjoying what they see.
4. What’s the worst thing about it?
Hoping that once you made the investment into making a video, you get your money back plus profitthat the video does not bomb!
5. Describe any very odd experiences or situations you’ve experienced so far.
Oh! Where do I start its only been 3.5 years since I have been in this business and I think I can write a book. One of the oddest experiences or situations we have experienced so far is when you tell other people what you do for a living you really and I mean really get their attention. We love going on vacation and meeting all types of people and then when they ask what you do for a living we tell them we are producers of adult videos. They seem to be so amazed and start asking 101 questions about the industry and what really goes on behind the scenes. One time we told someone and they actually purchased a video off the AMVC site and were very familiar with our name and videos then they actually asked us for our autographs, very strange and weird at the same time.
6. Describe any bad experiences or situations you’ve experienced so far.
We really haven’t had any bad experiences or situations thus so far, the only situation that is bad for us is when our talent/model is performing his role as a bottom, and he has not cleaned himself very well before we film the anal scenes and we end up getting shit all over the sheets and the smell is overwhelming for me. At this point we have to stop production and do a major cleaning.
7. How do you find your models?
We advertise, Word of Mouth, from our Videos and Website, Chats and online. We also have a very talented coordinator that helps us find potential talent/models and we network with other production studios in our area.
8. What do you think are the best attributes of your videos?
Variety of themes we have in our videos and the different types of themes and titles we offer.
9. Who is your favorite model and why?
Wow! What a hard question, I like them all, we have been fortunate to work with some really great guys. If we had to pick our favorite model it would be Jimmy Hugh. Jimmy has been with us since the beginning, he has been very reliable; he is flexible and has always been very genuine with us. Jimmy has appeared in many of our productions and is a talented great guy to work with.
10. Which is your favorite video and why?
Wow! Another hard question, since its both of us David picks the College Boy Physicals Series because this is David’s personal fetish/kink and Eddie’s favorite video is College Boys In Paradise because it has a nice story, its in a great tropical setting and the boys are hot. Eddie also picks another soon to be released video called David & Eddie’s Private Lessons this video will be released in November and is a very hot video with a great storyline.
