“What do you cut out of a porn film?”

 

Sex has been filmed and documented since the invention of the camera. The people in front of the lens become the stars and the faces of the adult industry. However, behind the camera, on the sets, and in the post-production facilities, an entire world exists that most people never see. This is an in-depth and candid look into that dimly lit world of computers, raw footage, and too many late nights spent in the name of art. All told by a woman who crafted that art.

Sonny Malone has been editing adult films since the early 90’s. With a film degree in hand, her life took a turn she never planned. However, once she decided to work in the adult industry, her goal was to be the best. As a female in a male-dominated industry, she managed to navigate the rushing waters to become the first editor ever given the industry’s highest accolade. With stops at many prominent companies, each move gained her a higher reputation. She spent time on sets, in edit bays, and at many parties and award shows.  At its peak, the internet came along and decimated much of post-production. The big companies wouldn’t pay her price but those performers striking out on their own lined up for her expertise.

After nearly thirty years of editing adult films for a living, Sonny Malone has decided to document her roller-coaster journey through the porn industry. As you read, if you are in the industry, you will know. If not, you will want to know. 

Sonny Malone (aka Madison Premo) was born in Massachusetts and moved across the country with her family. Stops in Ohio, Chicago, and finally Los Angeles brought her to the film industry. When the family moved back to the East Coast, she stood at the airport and waved goodbye. She is happily married to her wife (a published poet), and they live outside of Pasadena, California with their rescue Yorkie, Roxie.
