The Character Flexibility:  First and foremost thing is the artist flexibility. At First, Tell your artist about the nude scene that inserted in your script. Do you remember a nude scene of Kate Winslet in the film Titanic? The director of that film James Cameron informed already about the nude scene at the time of her screen test.

“Trying to do an aggressive sex scene is quite difficult. Especially in a public place with a crowd of screaming extras with their little camera phones going click-click, taking pictures of your pasty white a*s. I’ve had my fair share of bedroom antics in films, but they were a little more private.”

Common Instructions to the Filmmakers

1.  The Lighting set up: It is too difficult to create a set light for filming a nude scene: Two reasons are behind this statement, the primary reason is shadows, that means when the performers closer to each other, especially the shadows of female actress fall in front of the actor’s face, resulting it blocking the performance and similarly the scene became out-of-focus. The second reason is heat emitting from the set light, as the actors are performing without any (or) with few clothes, the heat emits from the lights instantly causes emission of sweat, resulting of this, the actors feel discomforts. Here you can do one thing is -regulate the room temperature with an exhauster or an HVAC set up.

2. Use Multi cam set up: That’s easy for creating more visuals, later it will help you in the editing section.

3. Never allow a personal camera: We suggest this strictly, say to your crew members to switch off their cell phones until the time of completing the scene. You might often hear about the controversies related nude scenes leak and its after effects. We hope, that will not happen in your movie.

4. The Censoring: Don’t overexpose the nude scenes, sometimes it causes banning from the mainstream cinemas because of the sexually explicit content. The films like Unfreedom (2015), IRRÉVERSIBLE (2012), ROMANCE (1976) etc were banned because of the nude scenes. So, your script demand nude scenes, but the film censoring commission didn’t want to see nude scenes in your film. Then, what is the alternate solution? Here, below we are showing you a video that have nude scenes, but didn’t seem like that. Brilliant Visualization! Check it out
