Danland

Leal's journey through adult was documented in the 2012 feature length film ″Danland″ which is described as a portrait of amateur porn producer Dan Leal, aka "Porno Dan." While he is at the top of his game, he wants to stop starring in his own movies. Here, we follow him on a three-year quest to build his business and find love which ends up leading us deep inside the heart and mind of Porno Dan .

The first time director & filmmaker Alexandra Berger spent three-and-a-half years following Leal in his quest for true love, and while the resulting Danland travels an unsurprising path, it’s ironically the subject—not the raunchy subject matter—that ultimately keeps this documentary involving.

Controversy

During the fight over Measure B, the mandated condom usage law pushed by the AHF, Leal and his suite of companies were the first to comply with the measure and take their studio all-condom. Contrary to popular belief, Leal has stated the adjustment to condoms but has yet to see his revenue drop. “Some of my series started [using condoms] as long as four years ago,” Leal told XBIZ. “‘Fuck a Fan’ was the first one I did with condoms.” Leal produces, directs and performs in his live shoots that are later packaged for DVD distribution by Pure Play Media. In February, he changed his company policy from condom optional to mandatory. [17]
