When it comes to body doubles used while filming intimate moments in a movie or TV show, the Time’s Up group proposed restrictions on the use of real and virtual doubles.

He adds, “ The nudity, simulated sexual content and agreed choreography of the intimate scene depicted by the dub must be limited to what was initially agreed upon by the actor. This applies to digital or body dubbing. ”
Supporting Time’s Up guidelines, Skyfall star Naomie, 44, said, “ I absolutely salute these guides which were created by my Time’s Up sisters. They show that whatever your situation, you have options. These guides help equip people with the resources and information they need to determine the best course to take.

While Dark River actress Ruth Wilson agreed, 39, she agreed: “ Our industry is really wonderful but has existed without the necessary guarantees.
Whatever the experience, whether it’s negotiating a sex scene for the first time or witnessing abusive behavior on set, these guidelines are there as an essential resource. Everyone deserves to feel safe at work, and these are a big step forward in making this a reality.
The advice further states that CGI technology should not be used to “ make love ” without the consent of the relevant actors, noting: “ No imaging, prosthesis or scanning of your image or body in relation to naked and simulated. Sex scenes can be performed without your written consent.

He points out that artists must first give their consent for the use of “digital dubbing or digitization”, including the use of CGI to superimpose body parts of one artist on top of another.
They can also clearly indicate which parts of the body they want to show or touch in a scene and also which parts of another artist’s body they can touch well.
When it comes to the nudity rider, Time’s Up guidelines suggest that contracts should specify the levels of nudity and the specific acts in which the actor is willing to perform.
These specifics could include such things as full rear nudity, full-mouth kissing, willingness to wear a swimsuit or other revealing on-screen ensembles, and above-waist-only nudity.
Time’s Up UK President Dame Heather Rabbatts said: ‘The entertainment industry is not a typical workplace so it can be confusing to figure out your rights and options when it comes to harassment, discrimination and misconduct in the workplace.
Rules: “Nudity, simulated sexual content and the agreed upon choreography of the intimate scene depicted by the dubbing should be limited to what was initially agreed upon by the actor. This applies to digital or body dubbing ‘(pictured, an intimate moment in Amazon Prime’s Ammonite)
“We have developed these resources with our sisters in the United States, for people in the entertainment industry who find themselves in situations that are at best awkward, or at worst, dangerous.
The recently released guidelines are said to attempt to keep up with the advancements in special effects used by the Hollywood film industry, which has seen actor numbers realistically reproduced on screen.
Examples include Lena Headey’s Game Of Thrones character Cersei Lannister walking naked through a town in the fifth series, which in fact didn’t feature Lena naked at all.

Instead, a nude body double was mixed with her dressed body in post-production, giving the illusion that the actress had in fact undressed for the scene.
While in the 2010 film Machete, star Jessica Alba’s underwear was digitally removed, making it appear as if she was naked.
The Time’s Up organization was formed to tackle sexual harassment in the workplace in the wake of the #MeToo movement, which emerged in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal in 2017.
