Sensate Films produce premium-quality erotic media for web, screen, and print. Our work values process over product, aesthetic reverence for diverse forms of human intimacy, and hybridized modes of storytelling – blending fantasy with documentary, the self-conscious with the un-conscious, and the many shapes of the ‘real’.
Informed by our political, philosophical, and professional experiences, particularly in the adult industry, we have cultivated a production ethic we call SLOW PORN. Have a look at the ‘slow porn‘ page to get a better sense of how that manifets.
The hallmarks of our productions are:
reverence for the art of erotic filmmaking through the creation of imagery that is as cinematically and artistically moving as it is prurient
an interest in finding and representing sensuality in both the fantastical and the commonplace
a sex-positive approach that opens itself to the diverse expressions of bodies we encounter
the involvement of the people who appear in our work in the processes of its production. We see our contributors as collaborators and our work is the product of that co-creation.
We shoot and edit in various styles, but no matter what devices we employ as filmmakers, our material is necessarily somewhat documentary. The beauty of what we capture is the organic unfolding of an erotic engagement. It’s impossible to script, and so we don’t try. Instead we focus on creating an environment in which that expression can thrive.
