2023 XRCO NOMS VIDEO instructions


A message from XRCO Chairman, Dirty Bob:


The recent 2020-2022 XRCO NOMINATION videos (originally shot at home because of covid) worked GREAT and we received a tremendously positive response so - we will now be making one every year!  But now you can shoot them at home - or anywhere you like!


And yes, in 2023 we ARE planning on an actual awards party again!  The CONFIRMED date is MAY 11, 2023 !!!.

We strongly suggest that you watch all (or at least some) of the previous year's videos to give you ideas - and see examples of how you can personalized things. 


The link below goes to the videos - there are 3 so far - all are great; may we suggest watching the 2021 video at: 




You will be in the NOMINATION ANNOUNCEMENT part of the upcoming 2023 Video for the big 39th annual XRCO AWARDS SHOW!


Each of you will be given one category to announce. Easy stuff - basically, you state your name, category name, and the nominees from a list we will provide. Also, you don't have to say "and the winner is" at the end.


The idea is to make it ENTERTAINING!   Ad lib.  Kid around. Have FUN with it!  Show off and show yourself off as much as you like!


If you want, toss in any social media links for yourself (or provide them off-camera and we will add them to the screen)!


In the past we have had performers just stand there and read off the noms.  That is fine IF that is all you want to do - but we suggest doing a little bit more; something your fans may expect to see you do that makes you stand out - see the previous videos for ideas end examples. After all, this will reflect on you so show yourself off - have fun, be creative, make it entertaining!


We prefer that it be shot in LANDSCAPE (horizontal) mode which will fill the entire screen, but if you have to we can also work with PORTRAIT (vertical). 


Feel free to overshoot and make it any duration (within reason). Extras takes never hurt. Send us everything shot as we may have to so some slight editing.


BLOOPERS?  Include any bloopers in a separate file or at the end of your video clip.  We will use them at the video's end if they are really good!


Since the video segments will be combined and posted on line, it will also be easily available for you to link to it for your fans and social media.


NO EXPLICIT FULL NUDITY, but feel free to otherwise be as sexy and revealing as you like. 

Nobody will complain about what you say -be clean, dirty - whatever!

Show plenty of cleavage if you like - or any of your other physical attributes.

Be as nice or as naughty as you want to be! 

Being sexy and teasing is fine - after all, they ARE for ADULT awards!



Make it fun - and sexy. And as long as the quality is good, you can shoot it anywhere you want - like at home, on the set, in your bedroom, at the beach, in the tub, on the roof - anywhere!


Shooting in 1080 or HD is plenty;  4K is too much and would probably be overkill. Shooting by video cameras or a good cell phone (in 1080) will be ideal.


Note: PLEASE keep the noms to yourself -  at least until they are officially announced!  We have to trust you on this!


Once the video clips are shot and sent in, they will be edited (by US) into the final production. 



Deadline?  This needs to get done ASAP.  Try to get it in by March 10th if you can - or sooner!


The best and easiest way to send in these video files is to

use WETRANSFER.com and send it to:  bob@ketteringphoto.com .

It is totally free.
