the AVN Award for Best New Starlet

KEEPING IT REAL; STEVEN HIRSCH

SPILLS VIVID’S SUCCESS SECRET: Vivid

co-founder and partner Steven Hirsch

was featured in a profile December 17th on the CNBC

program “Leaders With David Faber,”

and he revealed some of the secrets of Vivid’s

success over the years. “From the beginning,

it was very important to us to make real movies,”

Hirsch said. “I didn't want to be the guy who

made the movie that was sex scene after sex scene

after sex scene. That's just not what we do."

Faber told his audience that the formula seems to

have worked, since “Vivid created a niche that

has grown into an empire.” Another key to Vivid’s

success has been the Vivid Girl concept, Hirsch said.

“We're in a very competitive business. There

are probably 100 producers out there who are making

adult movies. But right at the beginning we decided

that we wanted to have exclusive girls. That way we

could focus our marketing dollars on these girls.

And that way we started to get some loyalty to the

brand. Because its all about the brand." Others

interviewed on the program included Vivid

Girls Jenna Jameson and Savanna Samson,

the publisher and editor of AVN Tim Connelly,

and David Amsden, a reporter for

New York Magazine.
