Valentina Bellucci recently sat for a virtual interview with host Chris Connor of Last Call Podcast and After Hours Radio on YouTube.
The popular adult film star and producer/director of taboo production studio (in association with Adult Empire Cash) StepHouseXXX.com studio opened up about the ups, downs, achievements and challenges of shooting independent erotic films alongside husband Vince since the company’s official 2021 launch.
“I feel like it wouldn’t be enough for me to be only a performer; I wanted something more… it’s probably because I am pretty ambitious and I like to challenge myself… I’m pretty determined and motivated. I had to do something more,” she told Connor.
“I like to take photos, I like to observe, I’m pretty intuitive, so I like the creativity and all the artistic aspects related with films, so I had to give it a try… it makes me prouder to know that I did it from scratch… it’s like your little baby because you created it.”
She notes that her abilities as a performer also help her relate better to on-set talent: “I’ve already learned from my own experiences, and that way I can help people I work with because I know their expectations, I know what they’re struggling with, I know what they’re dealing with in their heads, so it’s easier to help them because of my experience working with producers… my goal is to create a perfect environment, a great vibe, so everyone feels really good and welcome and treated professionally.”
Bellucci adds that she’s still trying to find that perfect balance while managing both a performing and studio production career. “It’s like with any other job… the good thing about being in the porn industry is that you can manage yourself the way you want; you can set your goals and be your own boss… you definitely have to balance it out because otherwise you can get easily overwhelmed… your mind cannot be in a constant processing mode because you’re going to get crazy!
“I’ve gotten to the point where I feel more balanced when it comes to different aspects of my life… I’m definitely more confident, I’ve learned a lot, I’ve met a lot of people from the industry, built a lot of connections and have become a business owner… I learn every single day, you know? And I’m in a pretty good place in my life right now.”
