That's right actually the whole movie was shot and -- that compound about 70%.
Of every shot.
Think that -- is Internet porn company that is based out of the San Francisco armory which is in fact the largest porn studio in the world.
And I was so that's why I watch that movie there.
And as I read my producer notes I don't think I stumble upon it says.
You actually -- something you've written several books -- a matter of fact.
One of them that you -- memoir the -- all diaries and -- diaries was called genius by Vanity Fair so you are a legit guy.
But it also says Steven Elliott and I believe we -- talking about the Stephen -- that we have on our show.
The director of about -- is a former sex workers so you have.
You know -- this of this World Cup foreign and this is kind of what but about series about.
Well you know if that's that's the setting.
That's the setting for the story and it's true that that the world but I know you know I was -- I was -- worker myself and I'm part of effect -- community and they don't ever really leave the community even after you've.
Staff doing sex work so.
It's definitely a world that I understand the story itself you know could be seen more of that coming of age story.
So you basically what it's about as an eighteen year -- is on the verge of finishing high school.
And unfortunately some of these young girls are doing these days.
You know with the sex -- they're taking pictures of themselves and their -- to their boyfriends and this kind of it's out of control she leaves and what happens she goes off.
With a friend of hers who is -- actually played.
By -- up to tell cracked.
That's right that's because I'm not millionaire millionaire here and they.
They go to San Francisco and they get jobs and he ends up cocktail -- -- -- strip club and that kind of leads to her.
Going in to try out to -- -- -- fellow.
And then that leads to a girl girl par and that leads to guy go -- -- better and you know she deals with.
The -- associated with that would people from that art and that world like her boyfriend played by James Franco.
In the male lead.
You know who are not particularly happy you know what she's doing in you know and especially the idea of doing a guy girl porn which is always.
Breaking point as -- breaking point four relationship.
So -- -- you do have some really powerful actors here how did you get them on board because again this is a pretty that's an edgy subjects.
Is there any subject but you know act act I've never met an actor that wasn't an artist I mean actors or real artists and if you can get them a script and they like the script then they're gonna do it it doesn't matter what you're paying them.
You know they'll -- -- -- that this this with a half million dollar movie so everybody made nobody made very much money on this movie.
But they had to know the actors like if they're paying you.
James Franco are ready with that he would option in my book he had -- iron right and I've written a script for him -- -- heavily in the scripting and he commit to being in the movie and then.
And -- that -- the script the people on when the actors connected with it that was all there was to -- really.
James Franco by the way really really intelligent guy and a great actors and so kudos on not only an amazing -- -- he really anything you know he's just hasn't.

It did help that we -- -- an actual porn facilities so.
You get used defending really quick also you -- -- James didn't drink her -- like six times and make six takes so that was actual.
Was there any sort of flirtation between the two of them and even a I can see doing that if you have a relationship with.
