OK, so there's a blog dedicated to "Nudity Required, No Pay". And they pull out our Actor's Access post. Here's their comment:
Thanks to Anonymous for tipping us off to this masterpiece where our heroine - poor, haunted, schitzo Laura - will probably be forced to make back-lit naked "love" to Neil the crazy drunk. It is very fortunate, however, that her psychiatrist is also one of the "very few survivors of the apocalypse". I mean - what are the odds?
It's kind of adorable how they assume that Neil is the love interest. Nope. Love interest is Sergeant Steady. And we'll probably see more of him naked than her. Ha!
You'll note that not a single European actor cares about nudity. Nope, that's strictly a bit of arcane, American, prurience. To which I say (with hand over mouth) "Ooh! Titter titter!"
More from our biggest fan (you have to scroll to Jan 26, 2010 to see the post) on a post I made about nudity in our pictures:
Heck, if we were doing porn we'd be able to pay our actors up-front. But I don't really understand the market for porn, and furthermore that market is (apparently) falling just like all the other markets are.
Interestingly, nudity isn't really a big selling point. One of our distributors was complaining to me the other day about how the "kiosks" like RedBox can have SAW IV or whatever but if there's a single breast in a movie they get all apoplectic. Sort of like Janet Jackson at the Superbowl.
Unfortunately, Nancy McClernan seems a bit obsessed with me now. Sheesh. Maybe she has been for a while. She seems to think that all my blog posts are about her now. Oh well. I'm certainly not the first one that's happened to.
We still haven't locked our first location which is a tad frustrating as it's annoying to not be able to get call sheets out. Nobody (meaning actors) wants to read a "day out of days" sheet and then interpolate which scenes they should be familiar with. Bleh. Maybe I'll just start making up the sheets without the actual locations on them. Or maybe one of these locations will actually call me back. We. Shall. See.
How hard should it be to get a rooftop in Brooklyn anyway? (The trick is that we need to get the insurance and then permits and hope and pray we can get TCD -- which is the New York police division which deals with film stuff -- because we're going to have guns.)
