Aaron Brown takes a long, hard look at the poetic melancholy of a Hollywood porn shoot.

Gorgeously shot behind the scenes candid imagery of pornographers and porn stars on a shoot, framed beautifully and in slow motion. It makes for some hypnotic viewing, especially with McCombs' soundscapes of sleepy sadness floating through your ears.

Everyone who goes to hollywood wants to be a star, but sometimes things don't go to plan. Aaron Brown asks a few porn stars about their hopes and dreams and watches as they reflect on that. It's certainly framed as heartbreaking, and does lean heavily on the default position of labelling all porn stars as victims, but it's important to remember that that isn't necessarily true.
