Hello, me and a group of film makers are thinking about starting our own porn company. We have not proceeded to film any porn. We just want to know what are all of the laws in North Carolina when shooting porn?
This is too broad of a question to answer on a forum like this. You are going to need to find a corporate attorney that is familiar with criminal law . . . or hire two attorneys (one to advise you on the business side and one to advise you on the criminality of what you are trying to accomplish). I am changing the practice area to corporate law to enhance the views.

You will need to inquire with a lawyer versed in the entertainment industry about starting a production company. They should be able to provide you with legal advice about the necessities of incorporation, permitting, employment and labor law, etc. Utilize the "Find a Lawyer" feature to find an entertainment law attorney.
