From “Casting X” and behind scene were born here . It has happened more than fifteen years in East Europe, reason by which discovered many of the great feminine talents of the world of Pornographic . The DVDs titled Casting X that later was put on sale (as of 1997) allows to see what passed in these castings. They often took place in rooms of hotels of cities of countries of the east where their agents of recruitment took their last acquisitions to him. Also hunted to its 100% rare called exclusive rights its Rep them in commercial centers and other sites public. The girls who participated in these interviews had generally between 18 and 20 years. The majority of them did not know what was the true activity of Pierre. For the Woodman, most difficult it is to obtain than the girls accede to go to their room of hotel. Immediately, with the help of his interpreter, it teaches to his work presenting/displaying to them a magazine to them or pornographic images and it proposes to them to make similar films or photos.
