This is the story of Girl Next Door Productions
My name is Elsa Svenson and I am a disciplinarian and video producer. I started Girl Next Door Productions in 2014. The story behind this enterprise started a couple of years before when my good friend Amy Carter, aka Clara Hewitt, asked me if I would like to spank her in a little video film. After careful consideration I decided to do just that and we made the very first video clip called The Naughty Secretary.
Then one day about a year and a half later I was contacted out of the blue by a gentleman who had obviously seen The Naughty Secretary and asked me if I would produce a longer video for him. I had no real experience making videos but I did know a young lady who wanted to be spanked on film and I had a friend who was willing to try filming it. I managed to get hold of another little camera which was very simple but would do the job in a basic fashion. With little experience we filmed the story of Anthea being spanked by her strict auntie (me).
A friend of mine in San Francisco was willing to help edit the video, and after a little hard work there I had my very first self-produced video, which I later on called Home Education. It is still available in the wellsmackedseat.com shop in parts 1, 2 and 3. Anthea was gorgeous and although she couldn’t take as hard a punishment as some young ladies you see in spanking films, I still think these early little clips are well worth seeing, judging by the kind comments enthusiasts send me about them from time to time.
After this start, I made several more commissions for the same gentleman, such as Tea with Miss Prendergast and Auntie Knows Best.
In the meantime, I had a website created where I could sell clips and DVDs. I was amazed how popular these videos were and with these encouraging signs I decided to continue producing. I hired a professional cameraman and editor and made the now legendary Bellington Academy videos.
The enterprise involved a lot on investment and preparation. I had to obtain school uniforms in all sizes. I designed our own Academy Badge and had it specially embroidered. Miss Mathews (played by Amy Carter) the deputy headteacher was the main authority figure in the early Bellington Academy films.
The story of Bellington Academy was a real success. So far I had hired people to do the filming and editing but I wanted to be more independent rather than always relying on others for technical expertise. So I invested in a good editing program and a high quality video camera and started learning to do the post-shoot production myself. I found it personally rewarding to develop my skills in this way, and a year after the first video was shot I edited my first full film lasting over one-hour long. This helped me to gain confidence in my own editing abilities and after this I did all the post-shoot production myself.
A little later in summer 2015 I decided to start filming on my own as well.
The first Girl Next Door Productions video I ever filmed entirely myself was A Day to Remember starring Miss Mathews, Miss Sullivan, Charlotte and Elizabeth and myself in the final caning scene.
It was an exciting technical experience as well as being a fun film to make with all the participants.
From that day onwards I have been fully in charge of every aspect of the production. I am behind the camera as much as possible. If I am playing in the video myself I have a couple of lady friends who will take on filming duties for me.
We are an all-female team
When we make videos we are often in a small space and the actresses are frequently semi-undressed. This can be uncomfortable especially for new models who are not so used to such work in such an intimate environment. It is very important to me personally that the young women who work with me feel comfortable with their work environment. This is one of the reasons I decided to have a 100% female team. I find it works very well and we have a great atmosphere and lots of laughing and fun between the spanking. This really helps the participants feel good about the acting they are doing and helps to pull us all closer together.
So there you have an introduction to Girl Next Door Productions. In part two, I will look at the different videos and what makes them all special to me
