I have been considering ordering a custom scene for years. I talked to a few producers, but our plans never fell in place for numerous reason. Models would be unavailable. A few producers wanted more than $5,000 for a custom video. Sometimes I would lose contact with a producer for unknown reasons.

Today I received my first ever custom from XXXtremeComiXXX and I am very satisfied with the final product. John kept in close contact with me throughout the process. I had full faith because of his professionalism. The scene has everything that I wanted in the video. Have you bought a custom scene? What was your experience like? Did the product and models meet your goals?

I've bought a few bits and pieces from Anastasia Pierce. I had a script idea but not much more than that. She figured out who would be good for the part (boy did she ever!) And put together a lot of cgi and editing for a price which I'm fairly sure worked out a good bit lower than my own hourly rate for the tedious mischief I do in my day job.

She also suggested some minor amendments which I'm glad she did because what works in your head or in concept sketches doesn't necessarily work on film.

One of the Finished products is here, judge for yourself.

I've bought tons of customs. My best experience (in the SuperHeroine realm) is with Cali Logan.

Cali is fantastic, professional, friendly, and really goes the extra mile. You can tell she really cares about the quality of her videos and giving the customer what they want. I've order 3 videos from her total, and I fully expect to order more in the future, when the time is right.

Primal was another good experience. Michael over at Primal did a great job for me. As part of my custom, I sent him a screen shot of a character I made in Champions Online and he put together a costume that was spot-on. Actually, Cali Logan did the same thing, only with 4 different costumes.

I never ordered a custom from XXXtremeComiXXX, but I did send them a script once and they were actually kinda rude to me, so I never ordered from them. I don't really like their stuff, anyway - not that there's anything wrong with it, but they seem to do more mainstream porn that just happens to include some cheap Halloween superheroine costumes.

Oh... XtremeFemaleFighting did some okay stuff for me. Ordered two customs from them. They did a pretty good job but there were some really weird choices they made in both videos that I didn't understand. In the first one, they had the model tied up with ropes that went all the way across the room in every direction and by the time the scene ended, they were loose and sloppy and it kinda ruined it. In the second one, they went against my explicit instructions in the script, so I probably won't order from them again.

Ordered one custom from Alex Bettinger - that was a huge mistake. He charged me a fortune, and we had several discussions about the script and tons and tons of really awesome ideas and then he didn't put ANY of them into the video.

I've had some discussions with several other producers including Alex David, Christina Carter, Jim Weathers, Diana Knight, MightyHypnotic and others. But never actually made it to the ordering stage with any of them for various reasons. Alex David was very honest with me and told me straight out that she didn't think she could do a good job on the script I sent her - which I appreciated. Christina Carter and Jim Weathers both told me my script was way too big, too complicated, and had too many models in it and would cost way too much to make - which was probably true. Diana Knight told me she wouldn't do a script with original heroines in it, she would only do known characters (presumably for better sales). I sent MightyHypnotic a script and he promised to read it over and over again over a period of several months. I had to keep badgering him about it and then eventually he declined the script with no explanation.

I order a lot of customs in other genres, like Femdom, too, and I've had a lot of mixed results there. Had some great experiences, and also been ripped off a few times - I suspect most of the members of this board already know about one particular incident, so I won't bring that up again.

I've bought a few. Luckily I've never been ripped off, but then I think the most expensive one I ever got was $800 or so, and even that would seem to be a very small amount to take-the-money-and-run with, given the damage it can do to reputations.

It feels like it's a very ad hoc process still, and there don't seem to be any sort of standard practices yet. For example some producers just want like a paragraph of notes or whatever then to go for it, others want a whole script and details. Some producers have a clear plan and file your request away onto a production line (which is in no way a bad thing), others it can be a little bit more chaotic, especially if they don't have that kind of system in place. I expect more producers will be setting themselves up specifically to do customs down the line.

Thing I'm doing at the moment is trying to find UK based producers for customs, because the pound has nosedived in value and while it used to be that custom movies from the USA were quite a bit cheaper now it's gone the other way.

Our methods of customs have been refined after years of making them, and currently the final method of customs is very off-putting to many clients.
Because we shoot 5-12 times a month we end up getting many customs (sometimes as many as 50 in a month) while true many of these are simple pop or three-four scene movies some of them are 5-9 pages long.
Currently we take an order and assign that custom a number. the number is based on the number in line
(if your custom is the 5th one ordered for that model, then your custom is number 5)

we shoot the custom normally but we edit and deliver the custom in the order that it was commissioned so if you ordered your custom 5th you will get it a few days after shooting, but if you were the 23rd custom ordered you will have to wait 3-6 weeks after shooting.
then of course since we have only a few days between shoots we sometimes only have a few days to edit before the next model arrives.
this means that many times customs take between 4 weeks and 9 weeks to redelivered.

thats a really long time to wait but we only have so much time to give so we usually tell people not to order if they cannot wait that long.
