Velvet Mafia: The “Lost” Photos
Cleaning off my hard drive, I found these photos I took from the set of Velvet Mafia this past May that I completely forgot about. Oops. Better late than never, right?
By and large, porn sets are a hurry-up-and-wait hornet’s nest of boredom, performance anxiety, sexual tension, and ego — with a healthy dose of disorganization thrown in for good measure.
But this one was different. Going through these photos, I was reminded fondly of what a fun shoot it was. If anyone was responsible, it was director Chris Steele.
Despite facing the Herculean task of managing a huge cast and crew and bring the elaborate script to life under the cruel realities of a porn budget, he kept things light-hearted and upbeat without ever sacrificing perfectionism — and without breaking a sweat.
