LIMELIGHT PRODUCTIONS STATEMENT ON HIV SITUATION
April 17, 2004
In light of the current HIV revelations and their related uncertainties, Limelight Productions joins the AIM Healthcare Foundation in urging adult content producers to suspend all hardcore production until further notice. The health and safety of talent must never be put at undue risk, while the integrity of our industry must be secured.
Limelight Productions began in June 2003 with the launch of its “Limelight Girls” DVD series, conceived as a showcase for newcomers and rising stars in the industry. Supporting its theme as “the porn stage for aspiring stars”, the series has featured nearly 35 select female performers with a desire to succeed in the industry while genuinely enjoying their work. With its seventh volume due out in early May, “Limelight Girls” is now popular worldwide, thanks in large part to the contributions of its female performers. The welfare of talent must never be compromised.
Limelight Productions pledges its continued support for industry standards and procedures designed to prevent future endangerment to performers. We applaud the efforts of the large adult studios Vivid, Wicked, Hustler, VCA, Metro, Jill Kelly Productions, and others for joining in support of AIM’s requests.
Our thoughts, prayers, and best wishes are with all those affected by the current situation.
