What goes on before and after?


Thanks to Redlipsprincess for this question: What goes on before and after a shoot?

Before and after a shoot... Well before a shoot begins there's lots of negotiating and scheduling. Pretty much the same as any modeling gig, just different terms since there's more involved, obviously.

What is "supposed" to go on before a shoot is that models prepare for the shoot per the directors instructions by wearing the appropriate clothing. Loose fit clothing is usually preferred as it does not leave lines from the elastic. I can't tell you how many times I've had to tell talent this over and over. In most cases talent do their own hair and makup before they arrive. Ultimately it all depends on the type of shoot.

Before the filming gets gowing the talent usually finishes prepping for makup and wardrobe. They usually relax a bit and talk with their scene partners (this is where "supposed to" can get interesting; anything is game sometimes) about what is going to be done and go over what few lines they may have if any.

At some point the PA (Production Assistant) or a staffer usually handles the legal end, taking copies of identification, health screening tests and model releases. It's ironic that HIV/STD screening is conducted as a voluntary but required activity within the industry but the general populace has such unsafe sexual practices. If more people new what lengths adult performers went to in ensuring their own health they would think twice about acting as permiscious as the stars appear on film.

From there on it's lights; camera; fuckin!

Post shoots are always a struggle between the model wanting to go home, get paid, or waiting on the next scene/talent on the producer. As with any work environment, when you know people, sometimes you hang out. When that's a porn set, well, lets just say things can get a bit interresting.

These legal documents, are they pretty general, or do they vary greatly from state to state? Can I just find a form in some website, or am I going to have to get a lawyer to draw up some releases? I'm working on probably the basest level here, but I figure that if I start with some professionalism, the product will reflect that bit.
