This one came across my email very recently and I wanted to check up on it, it turns out that not only did Naughty America move shooting to las vegas….They Moved it back to Los Angeles….Read on.
Ever hear of a company named “South American Produce Inc”? No? that’s the name that Eddie Arenas (Naughty America) chose for his new production company set up in Vegas to Shoot there. Naughty America let go all of its’s L.A. based directors and moved operations to Vegas. One might speculate that the name change was an effort to circumvent the previous Cal-OSHA violation in L.A.
but it seems that shooting in Las Vegas didn’t work out so well for them:
It seems one of the photographers got intoxicated on set and fell out of a window….(edit while i love the colorful image of him falling out of a window Im told thats not really what happened…apparently he kicked it out or otherwise broke it)
If that weren’t enough the shoot got busted by Las Vegas PD. So much for Las Vegas welcoming porners huh Diane Duke?
and then to make matters even worse, the second location burned down the night after a shoot…heres a photo
No word yet if there was any indication that the fire was “set” But it seems that Naughty America got the message and have returned to shooting at Remmet Studios in Canoga Park with Naughty Laura D as Director. Word is they aren’t shooting with condoms either. Which kind of illustrates the problems with the industry’s threats to move production outside of Porn Valley, i would suggest that before doing so they might want to be sure that where they are moving production TO actually wants them.
I would also like to point out that a LOT of porn Companies have been visited by Cal-OSHA of late and there is a lot of talk that pretty much everyone is going condom only.
