Jens Hoffmann – The Porn Diaries

What is your own personal opinion on the porn industry? Has it changed since making this documentary?

JH: My opinion comes from a very liberal background. I was raised by very cool and liberal parents. Not that they watched porn all day, but sex was not an issue to avoid. Germany has always been pretty open towards this subject, at least in my lifetime, so I think it is and will always be around. There is bad porn, ok porn, bad people, good people – it is an industry like many others.

The industry is constantly changing, especially of the internet and its distribution facilities. It is very interesting how all the private porn stuff is affecting the industry, which people put on the web, without being asked and paid. The industry is now more ruled by the companies with the best web-distribution set up. The old-school film production companies will disappear if they don’t adapt.

What projects do you have lined up for the future?

JH: I am recently writing on a script for a feature film, rather on the darker and hidden side of society and it is to do with drugs. Also, another documentary is in the horizon, this time it is to revolve around football, one of my biggest passions. You see where my interests are based.
