Next Door Studios Cameraman Paul Snell Passes Away

ROHNERT PARK, Calif. — Next Door Studios said Monday it was sad to report that Paul Snell, a longtime member of its production team, had passed away.

Snell had been working as a cameraman/videographer in the adult industry for the past 15 years; the last seven years he was part of the Next Door Studios family.

He passed away this weekend due to colorectal cancer, the company said.

Stephan Sirard, president of Next Door Studios, remarked, “We have lost more than a cameraman, we have lost a dear friend. Paul was a great person — he made our models feel comfortable and they all fell in love with his bigger than life personality. This past December he joined us at our Christmas party where he laughed and partied with all of us. The following week he told us that his legs were bothering him, was shortly after diagnosed with cancer and now he is gone.”

Sirad continued, “No words can adequately express our sadness at Paul’s death or our gratitude for the opportunity to work with him; he will be greatly missed by his immediate and extended family, and his many, many friends.”
