I am Jeanie Marie Sullivan. I started in 2005 as an adult performer. I always had big aspirations to be a porn star.
What prompted you to join the adult industry?
I was prompted to start porn the first time I saw Kobe Tai on the Spice Channel and I thought she was the perfect example of bravery and beauty and wanted something similar for myself.
You were recently in one of Wicked’s September blockbuster releases called Starmaker. Who do you play and what was it like to work on a movie like that for Wicked?
I played an angsty daughter to a rich Hollywood producer. Working for Wicked was like a dream realized. You really admire what they do at that camp. Making porn feel cinematic is the the highest honor in a sort of infamous industry.
Your sex scene in the movie is with Tommy Pistol. The action was pretty intense in my opinion. What was it like shooting that scene and how much did you like how it came out?
Shooting with Tommy Pistol was great. It was an action packed high intensity fucking. It was nice to work with someone who challenged my physical ability, it was like meeting a worthy opponent in a sporting sense. I loved the way it came out too, it really challenged me and I enjoyed the whole process. I love hyper sexualized, hot, passionate, raw and gritty sex
Seeing that you have done both all-sex and features, what would you say are the pros and cons of shooting both?
I like taking what I’ve learned from gonzo and apply it to a larger scale cinematic performance. I call it the balance. Bringing both elements to create the best of both worlds. I would say I prefer features because of the attention to detail that they entail.
On top of shooting scenes you also do camming. Besides the obvious, what is the biggest difference between shooting scenes and doing cam?
The biggest difference is the way you interact with the consumer of your content. With a feature you tell people about it and recommend they check it out a couple times a week. With camming you promote the night before and again 30 minutes prior to the show. I think doing both is the most ideal way to reach the largest potential audience.
If money wasn’t an issue, what would be your dream scene to shoot?
I would love to shoot a super high fashion “artcore” style feature.
Seeing that you have been around for a while now, what would you say is the biggest difference in the industry now as compared to win you started?
I started a while ago and I would say the difference now in shooting is quality over quantity. The shoots happen less frequently now and less focus on the gonzo that dominated when I began. The industry is really cutting the fat in my opinion, separating the stars from the amateur performers. Forcing people with real talent to emerge or people that are less committed to leave.
Who are the people you would love to work with but haven’t had the chance to as of yet?
People i would love to work with that i haven’t yet are Andrew Blake and Micheal Ninn. I really love the niche they carved out for artsy erotica. I would like to be synonymous with their style while still bringing hardcore heat and passion to the current marketplace.
What advice would you give someone who was thinking about getting in the adult industry?
The advice I’d give to newcomers; don’t be good be great, be set your expectations high and don’t accept no for answer. Keep pushing if the companies won’t shoot you in the way you would like to be perceived. Don’t accept no for a answer as an artist. You should get a camera, learn to operate it, learn to edit, learn makeup, wardrobe and styling. Study trends, adopt the ones you like and remember there is only one you and your story is important. Find your audience and tell your story before it gets told for you and inaccurately portrayed. Carve your identity and brand it.
Hobbies include drawing, makeup, fiddling with cameras and lighting, fashion, and charity. I recently did an AIDS walk with Team Wicked it really helps make you feel whole when the creativity gets drained out of you. It’s great for rebalancing.
Are there any projects or special events coming up that you would like to promote, if so please do so?
I’ll be directing a lot more in the future as well and working both sides of the camera. I’m collaborating with jackthezipper.com on an all new site as well. It will be the main showcase for all my for all my projects. You can also check me out on Twitter at twitter.com/xxxjms.
