LOS ANGELES—Bree Mills paid a visit to the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) this past week to speak with the school’s film department about her rewarding career as a filmmaker in adult entertainment.
The director and producer, who also heads up production for Gamma Entertainment, was asked to speak to the undergraduate ‘porn’ class by Professor Constance Penley of the Film and Media Studies Department after the students had conducted a research assignment on Mills’ erotic body of work.
“I had the opportunity to speak about everything from my own coming out story to how I consider myself a feminist filmmaker, and the way I challenge the status quo about what adult content can be,” Mills said.
She spoke at length about one of her latest episodes of PureTaboo, The Weight of Infidelity and “how it sparked so many conversations within our industry about tackling serious subjects, empowering actors, and being inclusive within our casting.”
The sci-fi spinoff anthology series Future Darkly also sparked a discussion of Mills is innovative approach to adult science fiction.
“It was a pleasure to be invited to speak at Professor Penley’s 25th anniversary edition of her groundbreaking porn class,” Mills said. “Moreover, it was particularly interesting to have a serious academic discussion about porn and its future with a group of bright, twenty-something students.
“Hearing their questions and comments was extremely valuable to me, not just as a filmmaker but also a businesswoman… I look forward to coming back and speaking anytime they will have me!”
