Another Pink and White Production

Shine Louise Houston

As the pioneering producer and director of Pink and White Productions, Shine has always had unique vision. Graduating from San Francisco Arts Institute with a Bachelors in Fine Art Film, her works have become the new gold standard of adult cinema. During a five year position at the women-owned, sex toy purveyor Good Vibrations, Shine recognized an underserved demand for authentic woman and queer made porn. Shine’s films have been recognized as the next big wave of women produced porn and have been internationally screened from Berlin to New Zealand.

Quotes

“There is power in creating images, and for a woman of color and a queer to take that power… I don’t find it exploitative; I think it’s necessary.”
-Shine Louise Houston
Director and Producer, Pink and White Productions

“I believe there’s a lot of room and need to create adult content that’s real, that’s respectful and powerful … I think it’s the perfect place to become political. It’s a place where money, sex, media, and ethics converge.”
-Shine Louise Houston
Director and Producer, Pink and White Productions
