(VAN NUYS, CA) -- Steven Hirsch, co-founder and co-chairman of Vivid Entertainment Group, will speak to students at the University of California Santa Barbara Film Studies Department on May 26th (7 p.m. Pt), explaining to students how he helped guide Vivid to its position as the world's most successful adult film studio.

Constance Penley, UCSB Professor of Film Studies, invited Mr. Hirsch to the campus. "In my class, which I've taught since 1993, we take an historical and comparative approach to the adult industry," says Professor Penley. "We ask of it all the same questions we would ask of Hollywood filmmaking, including looking at the way the industry has evolved over the decades, how changing technologies have affected both production and distribution and how the regulatory climate at any given time influences the content and style of the films. We are delighted that one of the prime architects of new business models for the adult industry will be lecturing to our students."

In his lecture, Mr. Hirsch will outline how the 20-year old Vivid developed the unique "Vivid Girl" contract actress concept and took other steps that made the company the top adult film studio and led the way in the increasing acceptance of adult entertainment as an important part of the overall film entertainment scene.

"I'm delighted to have been invited to UCSB to talk about the adult industry to the people who will one day be running the show in Hollywood," Mr. Hirsch said. "Professor Penley has taken a very professional attitude toward adult, recognizing that it is an important part of the overall entertainment environment. That being said, I think we're going to have some fun in this lecture because, after all, the topic is one that all students find pretty fascinating."

Mr. Hirsch attended the University of California Los Angeles. He has worked in the adult entertainment industry throughout his working career, starting in the warehouse of a firm owned by his father. He was co-founder of Vivid Video in 1984.
