Uk Adult Production company Dusk Films Celebrates its 15th Birthday

Dusk Films the North East production company is 15 years old this month. 2001 was when it all started for this two person company. Looking back over the last 15 years, nothing much has changed since day one. “ We haven’t expanded to a whole production crew, we haven’t been bought out and become a massive corporation but I am still proud of our success today and that we are still around “ said Paul Taylor CEO of Dusk Films. “ Our success sometimes mirrors that of bigger companies and our name is well known within in the Uk adult industry for our body of work over the past 15 years, but we are still indie film makers, and I never want to change, thats us, its how you know your watching a Dusk Films production” he said. Greg at Red Roxy once said, when appreciating the effort that goes into Dusk Films work “ You Paul are like the Sami Rami of the adult industry”, meaning there’s a cult following who likes the smaller budget productions, without ever it showing in the work, “ it forces you to get more creative with your work, you visually create something for half the price of a no expense spared production” Paul said.

Scarlet grey Filming for Nerd Pervert

Dusk Films has gained a good repuation for shooting first time models, and the list just keeps getting longer. “ People find us and say, I’ve heard your the best company to do my first shoot with” or models who were once first timers, refer new girls to them, because they had such a good experience. Things have changed a lot over the years since Dusk Films first began shooting in 2001. We have seen the website business model die down a lot compared to how it used to be, we saw the rise of the tube sites, double the problem with piracy. Then the government stuck is oar in and started wanting to police member sites, and now Age verification is now the latest government laws to try and police the internet.

Dusk Films had quiet impressive success with their POV style series Spunk Slut Casting Calls, POV themed porn was all the rage back then in 2001 and is still popular today. But like every creative professional in any industry adult or otherwise, you always want to find that next thing, the thing that drives you, the thing that breathes new life into what you do. In early 2012 Paul started working on a new idea. He liked the look of reality shows and documentaries, and even self shot vlogs on youtube. “ There was something about, looking in on some else's every day life that I found interesting, I loved the camera work, it was real because the camera work was so spontaneous, that it had to be real, I mean no one who do it like that on purpose right?” he said. Then thanks to shows like the office, that was a hyper reality, controlled and acted but still realistic enough in style and camera work that it could be real. “ When the office first aired and no one knew who Rick Garvais was, you had to really watch carefully, you had to ask yourself, is this made up or is it real, because he was an unknown it worked and you believed it, if it was done now considering how well known he is, it wouldn't of worked as well ” said Paul.

This was when he started thinking outside the box, porn that had entertainment and horniness. If it looked familiar, as in this could be on TV, then it turned into a porn scene, that idea really struck a cord with its creator. All he had to do was find a subject, the focus that drew you in to watch it. He kept leaning to an everyday guy, a guy who didn’t look like a porn stud, who gets lucky. He had the word Nerd in his head for sometime but couldn’t make it work. The very few nerd porn that was out there, never featured a guy, it was always cute girls in nerd glasses, or the odd nerd guy who had the American look, of slicked back hair, shirt, tie and was a virgin all the time. How was this going to fit into the reality show style niche. Then it came to him, he can be a nerd, but still want to fuck girls. As he’s a typical guy under neath but looks like a nerd who shouldn’t dare act like that as they are usually shy. “ Then I thought, how would he get girls to do that, looking like a nerd, I hadn’t really thought about his look yet, but I knew I wanted a look, that made people think, what ??? he does porn” said Paul. They were almost there with the idea, with no thought of where this was going to be seen. After talking to web masters about doing the web side of things and Dusk Films just handling the production they felt that would be a good a partnership and let everyone do what they do best. They spoke to about 6 different web design companies, and settled for Lotza dollars, subject to a successful pilot. “ We shot the pilot and I played the nerd character, the idea was, I was going to be stepping behind the camera, but we wanted to be sure what was on paper, worked visually and tonally on screen, and didn’t want to just hire any stud, for them to not think it worked as site” Paul said. He also knew he would be picky when casting the lead, and already well known studs were out of the question. Everything was put into the pilot, as everything always is when you are trying to show the potential of a possible series, It was mainly all acting and story and hardly any porn as Paul didn’t really think that the porn needed showing in pilot. The thing that would make this different would be the story and entertainment side of it as once they got to the porn, it sort of became like everything else out there. “ If people got behind the character, people would watch it all, and not just fast forward to the horny stuff ” he said. He sent a list out to Lotza with possible website names. “ I just sent them a long list of names, Nerd Fucker, Geek Pervert, Nerdgasm, Nerdflix, Nerd Pervert, it was a really long list” said Paul

After about a week, Paul had a Skype meeting with Ed the owner of Lotza Dollars who said he liked what he saw and asked Paul if he could make regular episodes to the same quality. Paul assured Ed that he was pretty sure he could, even thought it would be a lot of work. Paul mentioned that all he would have to do is find the Nerd lead role and then production could start on episodes that a site could launch with. Ed asked why Paul couldn't just do it and Paul explained that he played the part just for the sake of the pilot as it was easier to just get it shot but that after his POV porn performing days he was wanting to step behind the camera. Ed said he had to have a think and he will get back to him. A week and half went by and the next Skype meeting with Ed was surprising. He said they loved the idea and thought Nerd Pervert has a nice ring to it, that they could really find a market for this, and reality TV was the in thing in the states, even bigger than the UK. He said the plan was to market it at none porn fans too, to get people to invest in the show and that it was porn mainly as an after thought. However the deal was only on if Paul came with it, as in play the Nerd, they thought there was something funny about the way he did it. “I told them I would call them back and that I would have to speak to my partner “ he said. After a long chat lasting 2 days, Paul's partner (now wife) said, that this could be the start of something good, and that it would be something we would always wonder about if we didn't give it a go and see. “My mrs is very understanding and she knows its just a job, and to this day the thing that does her head in, isn't the shagging all the girls, its the long hours I spend on the editing and script writing, the shooting actually takes the less time out of all the other stuff “ Paul said.

Fast forward to 2016, and Nerd Pervert is just ending its 5th season, yes they actually talk about it as if its a TV show and not porn at all, which is the thought process that goes into it all and what makes Dusk Films really stand out. Nerd Pervert has a lot of fans who sign up to the site, some with a yearly memberships upfront and hang on the Nerds every word, especially the cliff hangers that Dusk leaves in on the last episode of the year. “Cliff hangers in porn, no one actually does that for what I can see, thats what makes Nerd Pervert different, it maybe about a Nerd who has to lie about being a porn producer to get sex, but its played very straight yet, very tongue in cheek” He said “ its been mis understood by some people, who feel that a guy going around conning girls can be seen as a bad thing, and porn gets a bad enough time as it is, look at the shit Fake Taxi got in the main stream news papers, driving around local areas filming” Paul Said.

But you tend to laugh at the Nerd and how sad he is that he has to lie to get women naked, thats the only reason they are doing what they are doing in the show, He knowns he wouldn't get sex any other way, but doesn't care, he's having the time of his life and he will ride that wave as long as he can get away with it. “ he just goes with it, and hopes the day won't come when the word is out on him and he can't get an more ass” Paul said. Nerd Pervert gets a lot of fan mail, from real life nerds, saying he gives them hope looking like that and scoring. Nerd pervert has a lot of female fans too, something Paul didn't except when he started the idea, as it is done from the perspective of a guy. “ I didn't set out to purposefully make it only for guys, but the way he thinks its ok to lie to these girls, promise them big time modelling work, and that he has no guilt for doing what does, I thought there was a possibility it might offend women, but they said no, he's that funny with what he says that you laugh at him for being so sad, so even though he is lying to girls, its the way his face lights up when it works and how he talks as if he's a big shot, when look at the state of him.” said Paul.

There's also good chemistry between him and Scarlet Grey “ I'm his camera lady and lodger in the show. “ I'm the only camera operator, who isn't just behind the camera that I know of, I'm a main character in front of the camera too. I don't do porn, but I'm in every episode as the voice inside the Nerds head that he is seriously lacking' said Scarlet. Scarlet is always amazed at where the story goes and when Paul chats about some of his idea's of what is coming up. “ we have always tried to not do what people are expecting, we have done Femdom style scenes, TS scenes, he's a pervert so he will fuck any hot girl there is, Paul plays him shallow as in every hole is a goal.” laughs Scarlet. People say they watch for the, will she won't see of Scarlet actually doing a scene, but Paul insists that although Scarlet has shown no interest in porn performing, she is kind of the only girl who says no to the Nerd and thats because she knows what he is like, and all the things he will try to get sex. “ If people watch it for that, then we give them it, where do we go from there??? I do get a lot of dms on twitter from guys asking will I ever fuck the Nerd, and I just say, you never know where the story will go” said Scarlet.

Nerd Pervert has gone bigger than Dusk Films ever thought it would of, and it seems no signs of stopping judging by the website sign ups and fan mail. They have even released Movie versions of Nerd Pervert on DVD in the UK and USA, and are broadcast in some European countries with a German broadcaster currently talking to them about broadcast rights. “ I'm grateful for the people who love what we do, who write to us, and the long list for great performers UK and Europe that want to be part of it, but I still go back to what I said before, I was only the filler in guy till we find the right person” he said. Lotza Dollars have come round to the idea that changing the lead actor which will lead Paul into getting what he wished from the start come true. “ This is bigger than me in the part, I still believe that me behind the camera, me writing the episodes, and editing them, with a new lead actor will still mean, we have our best episodes to come” he said. Paul doesn't know how long he will be playing the lead, but already has story ideas of how he would write out his version of the Nerd and make way for a whole new lead actor. “ I have ideas, I mean his luck will run out right? I mean if this was real and thats what we try and portray on the show, then it would catch up with him surely one day, and girls wouldn't fall for it, there has to be a lot of upset women out there, who know, they have now been duped surely?” said Paul.

Paul feels that Nerd Pervert could be anyone and another unknown would be the way to go. Him and Scarlet will bow out together, whatever the story line maybe and make way for the next generation of Nerd Pervert and a new lease of life on the brand. “ Nothing lasts forever, and I think Nerd Pervert will out last how long I want to stay in front of the camera performing, so the search is on, however because of how picky I am, knowing my luck I will end up playing him for the next 5 years lol, don't you feel sorry for me working with all these sexy girls” he said.

It really is hard to picture someone else doing it, but its nice to know that creative control will still come from Paul's Head, so it will still feel the same and have the same humour, but someone else will be able to bring something else to the part. “ Nerd Pervert can be anyone and thats the point, you don't watch Nerd Pervert as a guy and be threatened because the guy is massive in the trouser department, you don't watch a hunk of a guy with a 6th pack, you watch the under dog score for once, he just does it with his lies” Paul said. Paul is actually a pretty decent looking guy, playing the part as himself was just boring to him, so he decided to down play his appearance with a scruffy hair cut and nerdy glasses and it finishes off the whole idea nicely. For once you cheer for the lier, you want him to score and you want the girl to believe his stories of fame and fortune. This has taken the fake casting agent idea and put a fresh spin on it, he doesn't hide his face, he is geek and proud of it, and he shows you his sexual conquests proudly to the world. Dusk Films is already working on its next reality show themed idea, something we think is the style of the company, if it's half as good as Nerd Pervert we can't wait to see what is coming next.
