Hard Corps: a feature documentary aimed at uncovering the connection between Pornography and the Human Sex Trafficking Industry.

HARD CORPS, a feature length documentary by the Salvation Army Vision Network, plunges down the rabbit hole of “the sex industry” to see what’s on the other side. The undeniable connection between addiction and pornography serves the growing business of Human Sex Trafficking and this film proposes to uncover the façade of pornography as “a harmless pastime for consenting adults.” It pulls back the curtain to reveal the ugly reality of addiction, infidelity, prostitution, child abuse, rape and Human Sex Trafficking.

The online pornography business represents a multi-billion dollar industry which boasts the most searches on the World Wide Web. Billions of people, the world over, spend countless hours surfing the web while participating in countless voyeuristic fantasies perpetrated by strangers on the other side of the screen.

The arc of HARD CORPS begins in the seemingly harmless world of “legitimate porn,” that is to say, the small portion of the sex industry not controlled by freelance pornographers and organized crime. The filmmakers interview current and former porn stars, directors, anti-porn specialists and addiction therapists. From there, the crew travels to the AVN pornography convention in Las Vegas, Nevada to get a closer look at the adult entertainment industry and its pitfalls.

The midpoint of the film follows the natural transition from pornography into the darker world of prostitution. The filmmakers examine both legal and illegal forms of flesh peddling, ultimately leading into the inevitable world of Human Sex Trafficking.

What people are saying about "Hard Corps"

Wow! Well done, exceptional piece. I literally have chills on my body. The message is powerful and needed in our world. Kudos to Guy Noland and his crew.

Our goal is to raise $100,000.00 to produce to completion, market and advertise this documentary.

The funds raised will be used to recoup costs of principle photography, pay post production fees, as well as promotion and advertising.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The SAVN team has already committed many hours of traveling and filming to “Hard Corps”. Our goal is to raise $100,000.00 for the completion of this documentary. Making a feature length film is EXPENSIVE; from the costs of cameras, locations, travel, crew, food, permits, pre and postproduction and the cost of marketing and advertising so that the masses can see this crucially important film.
