"Making a video of yourself shouldn’t be a scary thing but it does require planning and forethought" Meeshee
Last month, Geisha Diaries was pleased to post the article, “Video: The Ultimate in Escort Marketing” authored by the classy Ms. Claudia Cole. Ms. Cole made a gutsy decision to take the marketing of her business to a more sophisticated level. She got together with Marco of Eros Films to produce some jaw dropping short films that have become the pinnacle of her success. She hasn’t looked back. Of course, I had to go to the source and speak with Marco, the mastermind behind Eros Films, to find out how it’s done. Marco is a cool, easygoing artist with tremendous talent and a flare for making escorts look remarkable on film. This is the sequel to Ms. Cole’s article. If your business is struggling, you want to take it to the next level (more like 20 levels), or you want to develop a new persona, read on.
A lot of escorts are leery about working with male photographers or in your case, videographers because they often bear all. What can you say to allow escorts to feel safe with you?
I can understand how a female provider could feel leery about working with a male videographer. However, when you see our work, talk to us by phone, skype or even in person, she will feel comfortable right away. She will quickly sense our professionalism and realize that all of our attention is focused on making the most powerful and mesmerizing film. We focus on high quality, artistic, cinematic and cutting edge videos. We use the best HD cameras, lighting techniques and cutting edge editing. Our videos are filmed to attract a sophisticated and selected clientele who are looking for something unique in a companion. Our professional and courteous female crew consist of a makeup artist and key wardrobe consultant. They are present during shoots and creating an easy and relaxed environment.
What advice can you give to a companion preparing for her video?
My advice to a companion is to come relaxed and rested. Avoid drinking alcohol the night before, since alcohol can bloat the face. She should come prepared to show her most sensual attitude in front of the camera. As experienced film directors and directors of photography, we will coach her to bring out her best. Our professional makeup artists and wardrobe stylists will bring out her best. Prior to filming the video, we go through the pre-production stage where we talk about all the elements necessary for the shoot. Following these steps will really prepare a companion for the shoot.
What advice can you give to the companion who wants to make an impact with her video but feels that she doesn’t have a perfect body?
This may sound cliché, but I truly believe that beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Every companion has an angle, side or pose that brings out her beauty the most. We apply all of our experience, lighting techniques, creativity and editing to bring out her best.
Does an escort have to have a perfect body to film a high impact, super sexy video?
I think ‘perfect’ is a subjective word. What is perfect for one might not be perfect for another. It is important for us to listen carefully to our clients (who are providers). We pay close attention and really hear their needs, requests and style. After accumulating all of this information, we carefully plan our lighting, composition and editing in order to enhance our client’s beauty and bring out her best physical and sensual attributes. Our goal is to make her look beautiful, tempting and delightful at all times.
Do you see video replacing stills?
I believe that nothing will replace still photography. It will always be classic and timeless. But when it comes to promotion and attention gathering streams, video is the new standard. Today, people are promoting more services and products through video. With the availability of new technologies such as powerful mobile devices and fast data speeds, people are watching video more than ever. Therefore, there is an advantage of video over photography. Videos are tri-dimensional mediums that combine imagery, sounds and effects. These combined variables make video a more dynamic way to showcase a companion’s physical, sensual and personality traits in a quick, yet artistic and enticing way.
Prices vary depending on the type of video a provider would like to shoot. We have three packages to offer. My advice to all providers is to contact us. Share a theme, story line or idea and a budget for this marketing investment. We will recommend the right package for them and the price list.
What is an average length of video?
Between two and half minutes to three minutes.
Do you film couples, pornographic or erotic footage?
We will consider any client’s request and approach it with style and taste.

In a recent GD article written by Claudia Cole, she talks about her experience with Eros Films and the process of producing her video. What advice can you give readers with regard to your experience with the filming of Claudia’s videos?
Shooting with Claudia was great. She came to the shoot very well prepared and had a clear idea of what she wanted to achieve on both videos, so that prior pre-production work made the shoot flow smoothly. We had about three phone conversations a couple weeks before the shoot and talked about the concept she wanted, wardrobe and locations needed. We exchanged ideas, and we came up with a very well thought out plan that allow me to estimate and suggest the equipment and techniques that we were going to use in order to achieve the look, style and feel of the story. Once we arrived at her location, we set up lighting, cameras and other gear. As soon as her makeup was ready, we started to shoot. Things went as we expected on both shoots and we achieved all the visuals that we wanted to obtain.
As filmmakers, we need to know our client's goals. We want to listen to her ideas and marketing needs. Communication is very important. Having plenty of phone conversations, skype or even face-to-face meetings (whenever possible) will allow us all to be on the same page and create a winning plan.
We are creating a very powerful promotional tool and the more we know about a companion’s goals for these videos the better we can advise her on the many details that make a difference. It is important to decide in advance what outfits go into play, locations, music, lighting, composition and editing. All combined will make an impact on past, regular and future clients for the provider.
Following these words of advice will lead to a smooth shoot and allow us to obtain all the visuals necessary to complete the story.
