Justin, your post about the cute boy and his snake oddly reminded me off an experience on the set of my first film, "Long-Term Relationship." We had hired a great actor who also happened to be a former porn star. On the first day of filming, he was naked for all his scenes, and at one point, I turned from the monitor to yell instructions to someone and found myself looking right at his personal snake. Yeah, he was just standing around naked, enjoying watching the movie being made. I told him, "You know, you can get dressed now," and he responded, "That's okay, I'm fine." Gotta love someone so comfortable in his own body.
Had a similar experience on the set of "3-Day Weekend." The wonderful Derek Long had just filmed a full-frontal scene and we were moving on to getting his close-ups (of his face). I said he could put some pants or underwear on if he'd be more comfortable, and he just shrugged. "They've seen it already, what's the point?" Great attitude.
We actually had so much nudity on the last film that when we made the new one, which is a family Christmas comedy called "Make The Yuletide Gay," the (straight) sound guy and first AD were both jokingly asking when they'd get to see snake on this production. Apparently we've provided them with more exposure to male nudity than in all their other filmwork combined!
So anyone going to see "Make The Yuletide Gay" expecting nudity will be disappointed. But it's all about family and acceptance, which is more important. Right? RIGHT? Can't wait to see it with audiences again at Outfest in Los Angeles and QFest in Philadelphia, and at festivals all over through the fall.
But no snakes. Sorry.
