Madison Young Productions is accepting new models and content.




Madison Young Productions is accepting new models and content.




Vision:

For the past 8 years I’ve been participating in the documentation of authentic sexual culture both by sharing my sexuality with the camera and by picking up the camera myself and documenting honest sexual climaxes and explorations of those in my community. A community of queers, artists, kinksters, lifestyle fetishists, sex workers, activists, extroverts, sex nerds, exhibitionists, real couples, and lovers. This is my passion in life. To create space physically and on the web for the visual and intellectual dialogue of sex, art, kink, and gender expression. To create space free of shame and celebrating our bodies, our connections with lovers, our community and fellow sexual collaborators. Celebrating the ever changing fluctuation of our identities, our bodies, our sexual desires. Celebrating our animalistic sexual instincts and embracing our sexual selves with radical fearlessness.

On my sites you will find a community forming that has a positive view of sex and deeper sexual exploration. We advocate the sexiness of safer sex, communication, and sexual education.



Web Sites: We are currently developing content for two upcoming sex positive women run web sites brought to you by Feminist Porn Award winning Director and Performer, Madison Young.


The two upcoming sites are :


Femifist.com featuring hot feminist identified individuals who enjoy vaginal or anal fisting, either solo or with another person. We are looking for interviews, videos, photos, articles, erotica, essays on what you love about fisting. Femifist.com is open to content featuring models of all gender identities, ethnicities and bodies. We encourage and promote diversity and visibility with in the adult industry. We are looking for videos and photos featuring real orgasms, connection and authentic pleasure around fisting.


TheWomansPOV.com featuring self identified women shooting hand held video from their point of view while engaging in different kinds of sexual pleasure with other self identified women. Video could include fetish, foot worship, strap on play, fisting, oral sex, flaux jobs, and any other kind of sexual play that you and your partner enjoy. This is really about fun, sexy, pleasure and connection. We like to see both performers so it is best to pass the video camera back and forth during the scene and to use a small hand held camera that is easy to handle.


The interview: 5 minutes


- All entries should include a five minute video interview with the performer/s answering the following questions. Please restate the question in your answer as the question will not be included in the video. So if the question is "Why do you think it is important to create porn from a woman's point of view?" you would answer, "I think its important to create porn from a woman's point of view because…."



Questions to answer on video for Fisting entry:

Video:

All video entries should include at minimum 20 minutes of edited footage if the video is of a couple and minimum 10 minutes of edited footage if it is a solo scene. Footage can be "in camera edited" or edited with video editing software like final cut or imovie but should be exported at full resolution onto a mini dv tape labeled with your stage name and date.


Our standards are high, which means no web cams or still cameras in video mode. You'll need to record your video footage using a digital camcorder. I've also found that the Flip Cameras have excellent footage and are under $200. Please include the details of your camcorder if possible, make, model and the format it has been recorded in.


Make sure you have good light. Daylight from a nearby window is best. If you're using a lamp, it should be to one side, close to you but not too close to the camera, so the light is graded across your face. It will need to be a bright lamp and set the white balance manually to "indoor" (all camcorders have this control).

Please don't have any music or the TV playing as it creates a copyright problem.



Fisting:

For femifist.com submissions you can either shoot from your personal point of view, set up tripod and adjust it through out the scene or have a friend work the camera for you. To reduce or eliminate edits on your computer try in camera editing. If there is a need to pause simply press pause on the camera but don't feel like you need to leave out communication. We like to hear communication between partners especially with something like fisting. Asking for more lube or to go a little slower or that you need the vibrator are all things that we want to include in the video. So please make sure to include those elements. Don't feel like you have to be silent. We want this to be authentic, connected, safe and showing our audience at home how to engage in sex with healthy communication skills. Its best to shoot twice as much footage as you need for the scene so if it is a solo scene where you need 10 min edited footage I suggest getting 20 min. If it is a couple scene where you need 20 minutes I suggest getting 40. Take this opportunity to explore locations and scenarios that are fantasies or real turn ons for you and/or your partner in the scene. We definitely want to see your personality come through in the film and a real sense of desire and pleasure so follow your hearts desires and bring your camera along.



POV:

For thewomanspov.com submissions you will want to hold the camera while you are performing. If you are shooting yourself for a solo scene flip the view finder around so you can see your framing. If you are shooting with someone else make sure to get plenty of face shots, pans of bodies, action shots and to get shots of the face in moments of ecstasy and pleasure. Having your partner look directly at the camera is very helpful. Make sure to have the camera passed back and forth so we can get both of your faces and selves experiencing authentic orgasms and pleasure. We like to hear communication between partners especially with something like fisting. Asking for more lube or to go a little slower or that you need the vibrator are all things that we want to include in the video. So please make sure to include those elements. Don't feel like you have to be silent. We want this to be authentic, connected, safe and showing our audience at home how to engage in sex with healthy communication skills. Its best to shoot twice as much footage as you need for the scene so if it is a solo scene where you need 10 min edited footage I suggest getting 20 min.

We definitely want to see your personality come through in the film and a real sense of desire and pleasure so follow your hearts desires and bring your camera along.


Photos:


A photoset is a series of 60 - 80 pictures of you, starting fully clothed and ending fully nude. A set should be taken in one session with the same outfit, theme and setting - this should coincide with what your theme, setting, outfit is for your video submission and should include the sexual positions that you were in for the video. I suggest shooting the first half of the photos before the video shoot and the sex photos after video.

The set should start out clothed and end up fully nude; the outfit and setting should remain consistent throughout the entire set! Nudity should begin in the first half of the set, which usually starts around photo #10 in a finished set. The sex shots should include the face shots, shots of the two performers looking at one another and connecting, passionate sex, several shots with the performers making eye contact with the camera. I would like close up and penetration shots but this is not needed in every position. It is good however to be able to see the action. Let the viewer see what feels so great and pleasurable. For cunnilingus you might need to cheat your face to the side, for strap on play you will want to just insert the tip of the dildo and angle your hip out toward the camera so the camera can see, also if the performer who is penetrating the dildo is on top and mostly pulled out you can get a great shot. I'm happy to give pointers if you have questions on angles before the shoot. But the most important thing is to capture the chemistry and connection between the performers.

A finished set is between 40-60 pictures, but you should take lots of pictures and only send us the best photos. You should take out the pictures that you or the photographer hate from your sets but send us the ones that you think are pretty good. The set you send us should have about 60 - 80 images, definitely not more than 100 photos. Make sure you have enough variety in the pictures you send us - we don't need 10 pictures in the same pose to choose from. You cannot send a set if it's under 35 photos.
Your images must be at LEAST 1200 pixels on the longest side, otherwise we will not be able to use your set!

You must be 18 years of age or older at the time of the photoshoot, please keep this in mind if you have just recently turned 18. NO EXCEPTIONS, EVER.


Your set should be fun and creative, and showcase your physical beauty as well as your personality. Here are some general guidelines to follow:

*You must shoot with a digital camera. Shoot your photos at the largest quality your camera has available. MAKE SURE THE DATE & TIME STAMP IS TURNED OFF - we will not accept any sets with the date and time on them since we can't photoshop it out.

*You do not need to photoshop your pictures before you send them in, it will not affect whether or not we use your set. If you are submitting your set photoshopped, you or your photographer should save the original files.

*Lighting really is the most important step in getting good photo quality. Natural light is by far the easiest to work with - a room with a window should provide enough light during the day.
-If you shoot outside, it's best to shoot at sunrise or sunset, or on a cloudy day to eliminate weird shadows.
-If you are shooting indoors and there is not enough natural light, make sure you have multiple lights in your set up. A cheap solution to indoor lighting problems is to buy a few inexpensive shop lights from a hardware store and high watt bulbs.

*Backgrounds should either add to the set or be plain enough that it's not distracting. Messy bedrooms and bathrooms are not artistic or sexy, so clean up before you shoot.

*Include a variety of angles, close-ups, full body shots, and poses. Sets with one camera angle only can seem a bit stiff and distant, make sure to move the camera around! Please do not send us a ton of pictures in the same pose to choose from - move around, experiment with different poses and facial expressions, try to find what is flattering for your body type.

*Get creative with your theme. Maybe you have a favorite book, video game, movie, comic book that you could base your set on, or maybe you have a friend that works at a bar or has a really cool apartment or house you could shoot in. Does your friend work at a bike garage or cafe that you could shoot at? Do you and your partner have a fantasy about having sex in a truck or car? This is the perfect chance to explore those fantasies and have the photos to look back on.


*Use available resources - you don't need to spend a ton of money to shoot a great set. Use what you have available, there is no need to go out and rent a crazy location or hire a makeup artist or hair stylist. If you don't have a location, ask around and see if one of your friends has some place you can shoot. More often than not, you can even shoot in your own house.


You can shoot your own set, you don't have to work with a professional photographer!! There are several girls who shoot their own sets. You can either use the timer on your camera, or you can pick up a remote for around $10. If you don't have a tripod, you can set your camera on a table or stack of books, etc. I have discovered this can often take longer than having a friend's help though.

Safer Sex Barriers - We encourage the use of safer sex barriers which includes gloves, dental dams, condoms. Don't be afraid to show how hot safer sex can be.


Communication - If you are shooting with someone you haven't met or even a friend or a crush, take them out for tea or coffee and talk to them about their sexual likes and dislikes. Things you might want to explore on camera. This is also a great time to talk with them about barrier use, wardrobe, location, sexual limits, fantasies, and STI/STD testing.


Approval and Payment Process:


Once your set is received it will be viewed with in 2 weeks by our staff members and rated. We will send out e-mails on a monthly basis to performers whose work is in que and is being accepted for publication on the site. Upon hearing back from you we will send you a model release and 2257 compliance form. After receiving your paper work and copies of 2 US Government issued Ids via fax or email , you will be given a publication date for your set, a membership to the MadisonBound.com web sites and will be sent out a check for publication before your set goes live. We encourage models to be active on commenting on other sets and being a part of the MadisonBound.com community. We love to accept multiple sets on a continued basis for our web sites from intelligent, artistic, sex positive individuals that have a desire to explore their sexuality on film.




POV and Fisting pay structure:

We are an indie adult company and working on launching these two new sites. Our rates will be going up in the future as the site launches. I encourage you to submit to both sites for video and photo which is an afternoon of shooting for some really cool sites for $300. Affiliates are also a great way to help us get the word out and for you to continue to make money helping the sex positive porn movement.
