What is it?
Adult Content will be the funniest British film of 2014. It's a feature-length mockumentary about the making of a low-budget porn film.
So it's a porn film?
No. It's a behind-the-scenes mockumentary about a porn film, but there's no sex or nudity shown. Sorry to disappoint you.
When can I see it?
We hope to shoot the film in August 2014 for a release later in the year.

‘The Seven Holes of Rome’
, a swords-and-sandals epic that tries to make up for its lack of plot with a lot of double penetration. Sinister producer and small-time gangster Barry wants ‘The Seven Holes of Rome’ to be the ﬁrst ﬁlm to make the crossover from the porn cinema to the multiplex, earning him a fortune in the process. To this end, he has employed Pawel, the world’s grumpiest arthouse ﬁlmmaker, to bring some legitimacy to the project. Unfortunately for Pawel, Barry has cast the same talentless bunch of actors he always uses for his porn ﬁlms: Jason, big on penis, small on brains; Misty, a born-again Christian, who has a cast-iron excuse for working in adult ﬁlms; Brad, who uses the money he earns in porn to subsidise his experimental theatre group; Shannon, a busty blonde nymphomaniac who loves her work; and Katya, who is saving up to get back home to Lithuania and kickstart her career as a presenter on a shopping channel. Always looking to save money, Barry has also “employed”, through her menacing Albanian Pimp, a pretty Chinese girl, Lien, who speaks no English and spends the whole shoot in terriﬁed silence. Behind the camera, Darren, the runner, is Barry’s bitch. Desperate to follow in his late father’s footsteps, he will do anything to be a porn star. But he didn’t count on having a gun pointed at him, his foreskin critiqued or being arrested. And he certainly never expected to fall in love... Adult Content is a black comedy that shows the unglamorous side of the adult ﬁlm industry. It satirises modern society’s obsession with pornography. And it’s quite rude about Hull, too.
Script; director; cast; crew: everything is in place to start production. We just need to raise the very modest budget. So we've started a Kickstarter project to raise the funds for production. Here's a link to the page. Adult Content is being made by Stripey Horse Productions, a company owned by me, Dan Hedley. I'm also the writer and director of the film. You can find out more about me, and see examples of my previous work, on my website. If you'd like to read a synopsis or the full screenplay, see the budget or simply find out more about the project, just send us a message via the CONTACT button at the top of the page.
