Equity-Spada screen agreement: Nudity
Nearly every week, the Equity New Zealand E-Bulletin will explain a clause in our Equity-SPADA recommended screen agreement, and publish this explanation on the website.
This week we look at: The Key Terms: Nudity
This week it is the section from the Key Terms on Nudity. You do not have to consent to any nudity whatsoever. Just tick ‘No’ if you don’t’ want to appear nude. If you agree to appear nude or semi-nude, this is where you will consent to the exact type of nudity: Nude, Semi-nude, Full Frontal Nudity, Full rear nudity including buttocks, Upper frontal including breasts (if female), and Nude or Semi-nude still photos for publicity purposes. You can consent to as many or as few of these categories as you please. A word of caution: if you have seen only part of the script and it describes only semi-nudity, please do not tick yes to “full frontal nudity” or “upper frontal nudity” on the basis that there is no full frontal nudity in the script. The rest of the script may very well contain full frontal scenes, or these may be added if performers have consented.
