Axel Braun's 'Empire' Offers Unique Crowdfunding Perks
LOS ANGELES — XBIZ Award-winning director Axel Braun has announced the availability of various crowdfunding perks that supporters of "The Empire Strikes Back XXX: An Axel Braun Parody" can choose from when contributing to the campaign.
Many of the perks provide fans with a unique opportunity to go behind the curtain of the adult industry. Rewards for donors range from a script or movie poster signed by the cast, to sitting in on a rehearsal, a visit to the movie’s Los Angeles or Alaska sets or a dinner date with the cast.
Additionally, walk-on and speaking role rewards will give supporters a special look at the closely guarded world of adult movie production with one of the porn industry’s most honored directors.
“Donors will have the chance to see how an adult film is made as a true member of the movie’s production team with our perks,” Braun said. “It’s truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for fans to join us on set and go behind the scenes of a major adult film with some of the biggest stars in the industry.
