“Using Explicit Sex as a Storytelling Element” will feature insights from highly respected women directors including Angie Rowntree (Sssh.com), Dee Severe (Severe Sex Films), and Shine Louise Houston (Pink & White Productions), with sociologist Dr. Chauntelle Tibbals moderating the event.
“My goal in organizing this panel was to come as close as possible to accurately and fully representing women’s explicit filmmaking today, but within SXSW’s limitation of only three speakers,” Tibbals said. “Each filmmaker on this panel brings a wonderful, creative, and diverse perspective to the table and has also demonstrated a significant commitment to industry activism and community building.”
The panelists each represent various scopes of professional erotica production and will discuss the importance of intertwining explicit sex with high production values and immersive narratives for total audience engagement.
The group will also tackle various social and cultural issues impacting adult content production today, including safety standards, workplace ethics, representation and common misperceptions of porn.
"I can think of no better through line connecting these panelists,” Tibbals added, “who will essentially be showcasing contemporary women’s erotic filmmaking to a global stage.”
Interested parties can tweet questions and/or ideas for the discussion using the event’s official hashtag, #sexstoryfilm.
