I found Candida Royalle and Femme Productions through her great website where she specified that she was looking to give opportunities to young female filmmakers. Although I had never considered shooting a sex film before it was a great opportunity. People can’t conceive of it but I pitched it as a regular movie where the sex is real. Although I’ve made other narrative films before, she is the first person to trust me with a larger budget. I approached the work as I did any other—a safe set with a polished and sophisticated crew of mostly women.
