New York, NY (PRWEB) April 22, 2010
Producer Alison Li has begun production on a feature length documentary with legendary adult film star Brittany Andrews as the films subject. Li, a native of Wrexham, Wales United Kingdom, intends to reveal an intensely heartfelt side of an industry that is largely viewed only for its heavy sexual content. The film will follow the life of adult film star, Michelle Barry better known as Brittany Andrews and include biopic peeks into Andrews’ childhood while examining what led her and other well known porn stars to enter into such a risqué career.
The documentary aptly titled, "Sometimes its Fun to Be a Porn Star," will also provide in-depth interviews divulging what triggered Andrews’ decision to retire from starring in adult films and the porn industry’s loss of revenue directly related to social media and the internet. Andrews and her colleagues will open up about the transition from enjoying the limelight from unexpected fans to the emotional battles associated with being viewed only as sexual objects.
“I met her as Michelle Barry, and I had no idea what she did for a living, I just knew that we were two people that bonded as women, was never judgmental with anybody and we became friends,” recalls Alison Li. “Its funny because during production, since I began this with no knowledge of the adult film industry, she sometimes has to warn me about the things that I’m about to encounter while at the same time making it clear to her peers that I’m not a porn film producer!”
Ms Andrews will also serve as producer of the project alongside Alison Li who will also serve as the films’ director. "Sometimes its Fun to be a Porn Star" will remain in production for the remainder of the year with a projected release during the last quarter 2011.
