Lily Campbell

Lily Campbell is an award nominated director, producer, photographer and VR developer. She is most well known for her work in the adult entertainment industry. She speaks, consults and writes about adult productions, sexuality and tech. She is an active proponent of integrity in the adult industry as well as a pioneer in high-quality VR filming.

Lily focuses on authenticity and empowerment in all aspects of her adult film and photo work. She encourages the discovery that the best possible content (and life experience) comes from embracing who we are and communicating our actual thoughts, feelings and desires. She has specialized in portraying realism and what Forbes calls, "Edutainment Porn".

Much of the time she can also be found working outside of the adult industry, on projects with a decided lack of nudity. She chooses to work only within environments that foster integrity and growth, professionally and personally. Her focus directs her towards challenging, high-impact scenarios. She is known as both a perfectionist and a problem solver, and is a go-to producer, director, and consultant for both the adult and non-adult media industries. 

Creativity, humor, honesty and accountability are traits that Lily embodies, seeks out and works to cultivate in others. She is a natural advocate. Outside of the adult industry, social service, cultural and music non-profits have utilized her for speaking engagements, liaison, organizing, funding and policy projects. Artists and companies consult with her on project management, best practices and creative direction. She has a brain which bridges the gap that can exist between artistic talent and business savvy.

Her love for exploring how sound, light, we and the world works is palpable. She is quick to laugh at, and loves, this elegant cosmic prank in which we live.

Lily is now freelance and enjoys working on both adult and non-adult film, photo, audio, tech, journalistic, social responsibility, artistic and educational projects worldwide.

    She is a revolutionary feminist taking the world of pornography by storm. I admire her drive to take porn away from the fake and into the more truly genuine. She strives to make the kind of porn the world needs more of, and I've felt both honored and delighted to be a part of making that happen." - Mira London

All while having fun and allowing expression of sexiness and creativity and erotic enjoyment."  - Lexx
