First has to be budget. You simply can’t make a silk purse with a sows ear budget. No matter how good a shooter is, if he’s working on a shoe string. He’s not got a lot of time, money or incentive to produce great porn.
Second has to be models. For a number of reasons. They have seen porn on the Internet and think what they saw is what is right. Often it’s not. It’s faked badly and shot on a shoestring.
Also their attitude. Todays models are far harder to work with. Prior to the Internet and the deluge of porn production if a model fucked up or failed to deliver the goods, she was soon out of work. Unless very very beautiful. Today there are too many places she can work badly and not have it effect her career.
And many have picked up bad habits from shooters who don’t know better or accept them.
If the model wasn’t doing it right, there was no, “Shooting something so the day isn’t a complete loss.” It was “Go home.”. Because paying her/him and the film wasn’t worth it. Best to lose the M/U fee, Boys/girls fee and other costs than add to the disaster throwing more money after lost money.
Even with digital we would just give up and call it a day. Assuming we couldn’t turn a couple shoot into a solo shoot.
The ease of selling. This has a lot to do with it. When selling a set to an editor he had 8 slots to fill and often 50+ sets to choose from. If your work wasn’t good, not good enough, it didn’t get accepted and even then it might not get used. We were paid on publication. What is accepted today would never get accepted by an editor.
Similar goes for the good video markets. They had more than enough work submitted to them. So if it wasn’t good it wasn’t accepted.
It’s easier to sell today and harder to produce good work.
