Very excited to see this. Two lovely women with great personalities who show enjoyment and delight with the right partner. Nice happy set up. I settled down to enjoy.
But, oh dear, Guy, can I make a comment? [Disclaimer: I'm pathetically grateful to all involved in bringing me much joy and happiness, and I know nothing except what floats my boat. Also this is the best thing VT has done since the transfer]
The handheld camara pressing right in to what should feel like intimate, precious and private lovemaking was so intrusive that I ended up full of admiration for how focussed and professional Lorena and Tracy are. Not at all what I was hoping for.
You need to BACK OFF, in the hope that the magic can happen!
I don't mean camera angles, closeups are lovely, but the roving camera made it very clear that these women were not alone. It was impossible to forget that there were others in the room, probably a bunch of men. Yuk!
What made VT and a handful of other production houses special was the focus on the delightful illusion that the women are having sex for themselves and no-one else, especially not performing for men. Just occasionally a jewel emerges.
I think you may be wanting to give a feeling that the viewer is actually there in the room, through the camera. Can I encourage you not to go down that route? I absolutely do not want to be in the room with these two! That would be intrusive and rude. What I want is a glimpse of the emotion and feelings of a beautiful woman making love to another.
Finally (thanks for getting this far) it may have Viv who said that the difference between erotica and porn is lighting. Being as hands on as possible during set up, and during post-production is never wasted. But during filming the team should strive to be invisible to the viewer, and ideally to the women trying to show you and us something touching and truthful.
Just a thought.

What a great comment, Frigg! This is exactly what I like to read - a really constructive and well thought out critique. I know Guy will read it with interest. I don't necessarily agree with everything you say (because I would quite like to be there in the room with Tracy and Lorena!) but I definitely understand where you're coming from.
Just a note - I'm pretty sure there aren't a bunch of men in the room! Guy's producer and make-up artist are both female, and I know he strives to make the experience as comfortable and enjoyable for the girls as they would wish. Actually, one of the things I love about VT, and the MetArt Network as a whole, is the number of women involved behind the scenes. I think it makes it a better experience in all respects :-)
