Le Financial Post a interrogé Nicola Lafleur de Pegas Productions à propos du monde de la porno au Québec et de l’avenir du X lié à la réalité virtuelle.
Voici un extrait :
Though pornography in Montreal may be going to the geeks, one place where there is still a market is in Quebec-made content for a local audience.
According to data compiled by PornHub on its visitors from around the world, the No. 1 search term in the province is “Quebec.”
Pegas Productions, a Quebec City-based company that boasts its niche is “francophone North American” content, says one of its most popular series features public sex at landmarks such as the Old Port of Montreal and Terrasse Dufferin by the Château Frontenac in Quebec City.
“It’s interesting for people from Quebec, but also it’s interesting internationally because there’s a little bit of an exotic side to it,” said Nicola Lafleur, a former landscaper who founded Pegas in 2006 and today has six full-time employees.
Lafleur said the company has always had an Internet focus, but the once-strong DVD and video-on-demand market has dropped off in recent years.
The paysites, meanwhile, remain profitable because they produce unique content and they has started making virtual reality that can’t be as easily pirated and given away for free.
“Virtual reality is fun because it’s an immersive experience and there really is a future in that,” Lafleur said.
Though he says it took five years of running the company to afford pay himself a salary, 10 years and more than 150 films later he says he’s going to stay in the industry even if there’s no promise he’ll get rich doing it.
“It’s a moderate growth but our philosophy is to say we are better taking one step at a time,” he said.
