Making A Better Erotic Movie

Earlier this year British marketing strategist Russell Davies was all set to attend the uber-exclusive TED Conference in California. But then he realized that for the cost of attending TED, he could stage his own mini-TED type conference, filled with all sorts of interesting people.

The conference, called Interesting 2007, happened last June in London, and now Russell has put videos of lots of the presentations online.

Which brings me to my favorite talk of Interesting2007, Jennifer Lyon Bell's 9 Tips For Making A Better Erotic Movie. Bell's a film-maker based in Amsterdam who specializes in erotic films. It's a business with an amazing assortment of special considerations and requirements... everything from do you call your film "porn" or not to how to deal with cast-members' tattoos and pubic hair preferences. It's fascinating to hear how Bell and her partner deal with it all.

Here's a link to Davies pretty much safe for work video of the talk.
