About Danland


DANLAND picks up Dan’s life just as he’s cruising to the top of his game. Having spent much of his career shooting amateur gangbang videos in the basement of his suburban Virginia home, Dan finds himself nominated for an AVN Award. But Dan also has a quieter desire – he’s decided to stop acting in his own films, and concentrate on living a cleaner personal life; he’s looking for real intimacy – a committed relationship. Blissfully domestic for a time in a renewed relationship with an ex-girlfriend, this situation rapidly degrades and six months later Dan is back to his old ways – partying hard and doing on-camera shoots with amateur porn stars. Dan tries to rebrand himself as the everyman porn star and heads back to Las Vegas for the AVN show, only this time no one seems to care.

Unflinching in its portrayal of the amateur porn world, DANLAND gets up close to one man’s search for love and shines a light on our collective desires and fears about love and sex.

DANLAND premiered at the 2012 Slamdance Film Festival.
