[caption id="attachment_1459" align="alignleft" width="201" caption="ryan"]ryan[/caption]We're still feeling really excited about the release of The New Romantix here at Babeland. As part of the celebration, I asked the director, Max Royale, to talk a little bit about the film:Where did you get the idea for the interview aspect of the film?I did a brief stint in LA some years back working on an adult production, and as I was going through the process I noticed that the women we were filming were nothing like what turned up on the screen. After watching a really cool woman have sex on camera, I started to think "why doesn't she come across like that?". At that point I started analyzing Adult films and to find out what was missing. My conclusion was that the Adult Film industry for the most part lacks the understanding of what makes good porn good. So I made it my personal quest to come up with something different, that and the fact I actually like the women I shoot. The interview process came naturally from that.What else makes The New Romantix different from other porn out there?A lot of things. One that comes to mind is that I only shoot women, not girls. We all know the difference between someone who's exploring themselves and someone who absolutely owns themselves. I seek out these people exclusively. This makes for a honest and engaging dialog between the model, myself, and the viewer.Another is that I make sure the people I'm shooting are not in it for the wrong reasons like drugs, abuse, money, etc. To make sure of this I send out a lengthy questionnaire and interview the models extensively before deciding whether or not to shoot them.Also, the models themselves partake in the process from the beginning. Whenever possible I try to recreate their fantasies, including locations and even building sets in my SF studio. This creates an atmosphere of thoughtfulness and fun with the cast and crew which usually translates into an amazing scene.joanna_angel_bedroomWhat process did you go through to find the stars of the film?Well I do a lot of things. I'm always on the lookout for true exhibitionists so I scour the web and contact people who I think would fit the positive mold I'm trying to create. I get referrals from models I've shot in the past as well as holding regular casting calls in San Francisco.What is the hardest thing about shooting porn?Probably the public's perception of what erotic film making is. Even some of my most "liberal" friends assume things because of there own tabboos and biasis, though usually after they see what I'm doing they become fans pretty quick.In what ways do you think The New Romantix fits well with Babeland?Ahh, where do I start! Babeland is the The Sex-Positive driving force in the adult market period. They showed us that people can enjoy themselves without guilt in a positive and uplifting manner. They educate and entertain with out "dumbing down" to the lowest common denominator. I would strive to do it even half as well as they do. I am so excited about our partnership!What is your favorite sex toy?Does lube count? The SaSi vibe is pretty miraculous. It's actually remembers what you like!
