With all the constant swirling talk of the death of DVD (and the porn industry in general), and the sense of impending doom it has left floating around the San Fernando Valley, it was shocking to hear people talking at this weekend’s Erotica LA about actually launching new production companies. I think you’re a few years late to the gold rush, folks. It was great watching Lynn Lemay walk around the show floor trying to find someone to distribute her new DVDs. The only people who benefit now are the distributors who take 30-50% off the top, and pay the producers when they feel like it. Lynn should invest her money in a nice mutual fund instead.
