Snack and Beverages Provided


We highly recommend this class as an introduction for those with zero or very little industry experience.

Sexy storytelling has its own business ins and outs. Whether you’re a curious first-timer or an industry pro looking to pick up some tips, you’re in luck!

Award-winning filmmaker Shine Louise Houston (The Crash PadSNAPSHOT) presents the tools to put your best foot forward, from setting up your business to editing your shot. A filmmaker who considers sex part of the narrative story, Houston’s cinematic style, and decade of experience writing, producing, and distributing explicit films are all made available. Come for the sexy stories, stay for the film geekery!

“Shine’s workshop thoroughly covers all the obvious things about porn making, like the perfect angles and editing, but goes even deeper into the areas that you might not think you need to know: legal paperwork, setting up your own business, etc… For me, these often overlooked bits of knowledge made this an invaluable workshop — not just in terms of porn but my broader film career.” – Past Participant

This workshop takes place at 4th Wall SF, located at 1458 San Bruno Avenue in San Francisco, California. Directions and more information will be emailed to participants prior to event date. 

Workshop will feature presentation of several clips from Houston’s work. There will be no nudity or actual sex involved. All genders, orientations and proclivities are welcome. We strive to create a safe, consensual, and non-judgmental environment.

Studio is wheelchair accessible. Please let us know if you have any needs and we’ll do our best to accommodate.
