10/08/2004 - Emmy-Award Winning Galafilm Chronicles Online Adult Business

Montreal, Quebec - Montreal-based Galafilm Inc. has announced production of the Showcase Original documentary series "Webdreams".
The eight-part series enters the labyrinth of the Internet adult entertainment industry by following a diverse cast of online entrepreneurs based in Montreal, one of the largest production centers in North America. From those who have created a small business using a home computer and a webcam to the high flyers who travel the world marketing and producing material for their websites, "Webdreams" follows a unique cast of characters who live their lives -- even the private parts -- on a very public electronic playing field.
One of the featured cast members is actually a group of people from Montreal's and it's flagship site, Toronto-based The "team" combines both ends of the industry's spectrum, from webcam chat hostesses to company-sponsored tradeshow delegations in Florida, Quebec and Las Vegas.
Also featured as recurring characters are's Dugmor, performer Malezia, and NaughtyNiche's Emanuelle, among others.
Each half-hour episode streams in and out of the personal and professional lives of these individuals. They all share the goal of making it big in the world of adult entertainment," said a Galafilm spokesman. "But how far are they willing to go to achieve their cyber-sex goals? How far will they take their personas? And at what expense to their regular lives, offline?"
Galafilm producer Michael Kronish said, "We're getting a chance to see a first-hand account of these people who have chosen to make their sex lives available to the online community. The rift between their public and private lives is fascinating."
Executive Producer Arnie Gelbart oversees the production of the "docu-soap" with series director Ziad Touma (Saved by the Belles), while Touma and Joshua Dorsey (Here I am) direct on location.
LiveCamNetwork's webmistress Jen, who declined being part of the project for private reasons but watched as the crew followed her chat hostesses online and offline, said, "They were discrete and non-intrusive. You jumped when you didn't expect them at first, but it wasn't too long that they sort of faded into the background. And Ziad is very understanding, non judgmental."
"Webdreams" is produced in association with Showcase and is slated for broadcast in 2005. Principal photography continues in Montreal, New York and various cities in North America and Europe until November this year.
Galafilm, based in Montreal, is responsible notably for the Emmy-award winning "Cirque du Soleil Fire Within" documentary series, which followed the creation of a new Cirque du Soleil production last year., known for their LiveCamNetwork 1.9 live video chat solution, JoinRightNow and NaughtyNiche have been followed by the "Webdreams" cameras from Montreal to Florida to Quebec and back since early last year.
