Re: What is the biggest factor in choosing a custom video producer for your script?

I've done both. I order basically two kinds of customs: superheroine videos and femdom POV videos. The former usually requires more than one performer, so I tend to use studios where the producer is separate from the performer (or there is at least one performer in addition to the producer). And fo...

Re: What is the biggest factor in choosing a custom video producer for your script?

I also wonder if the producer and main performer being one in the same makes a difference in your thinking. When the performer that I'm looking for has her own production business, that can be a plus, in the sense that I only have one person to try to get on the same page with, as opposed to talking...

Reviews are tricky for any media, but especially for customs.

Years ago, I paid a producer a few times to do custom work. I was always disappointed with the results.
