Modelling FAQ

Return to Model Form

Q: Is the sex scripted?
A: The sex is not scripted; what you decide to to is up to you and your co-star. If you have plot ideas, let us know before your scene. Dialog is created the day of the shoot and/or improvised. Shine also lends ideas or suggestions to help encourage models, however ultimately you’re allowed freedom to have sex how you like. We encourage co-stars to discuss safer sex, boundaries, and desires prior to arriving on set. Once on set, Shine talks with cast and crew prior to shooting, and to make sure everyone involved consents to the ideas and actions that may unfold on camera.

Q: Will I do my own hair/makeup for the shoot?
A: There is no hair or makeup artist on set because we value each model’s individuality and trust their own style and not all models want for hair/makeup attention. (We do hire make-up artists for talent performing as characters in Pink & White's feature film shoots.)

Q: How long does a shoot normally take, and how much of that is usable content?
A: Our shoots are either a full day on set (10am-5pm, though often leaving earlier) or a half-day (10am-1pm or 2pm-5pm, though often leaving earlier). Models arrive on location and get familiar with the space, talk to co-stars and crew, complete paperwork (signing model releases and 2257 information), snacking (food and coffee/water/juice provided). Character profile shots are done first, which take about 5 minutes and can be clothed or nude. After checking in with Shine and the crew about "the fun stuff" -- what will be done on set, there's a short break and then approximately 45 minutes of sex filmed, depending on how the performers want to go at it. After a break, an informal Behind-the-Scenes interview is filmed (“How did it go for you?” “What was your favorite part?” “Was it what you expected?” etc). The video episode itself is typically edited to be 20-30 minutes long. Behind the scenes video length varies in terms of interview dialogue and excerpts from the scene, and usually run 10-15 minutes in length.

Q: How many people are normally on set?
A: On a typical shoot, there are 4 queers/women on set; director, co-director, photographer and production assistant. The environment is relaxed and professional, and often very funny.

Q: Is STI testing required?
A: Any sexual activity can put a performer at risk for Sexually Transmitted Illnesses (STI) so we strongly encourage participants to have a clear industry standard STI test within 14 days of the shoot date. Additionally, we recommend the use of safer sex barriers such as condoms, dental dams, and gloves, which we provide. Because many performers work for us with fluid-bonded partners, and because we value performer's sexual autonomy and respect their choices, we recognize that performers have the right to waive tests and/or barrier use at their own risk. As a company policy, performers are responsible for their own sexual health. For STI information see our Queer Sexual Health Resources page.

Q: Can I submit my own content for CrashPadSeries.com?
A: We shoot exclusive content. If you are a filmmaker interested in sharing your work with us, please see PinkLabel.tv.

Q: Can I see the model release form ahead of time?
A: Sure, just ask us and we’ll email you the model release; it’s a standard form.

Q: Is there anything I need to do to prepare for the shoot?
A: Staying healthy is a plus! Keep hydrated (drink plenty of water each day), eat well and maintain your regular exercise routine (please don’t starve or over-exert yourself if you feel you have to change the way you look for the camera — we are very body positive and want you just the way you are)! It should go without saying, but please don’t come to the set intoxicated OR hung-over from partying the night before. Get plenty of sleep days before your shoot and avoid sunburns or new tattoos. Other than health, you can count the days by decide on your stage name if you don’t have one already, and fantasizing about what you’ll do on set for the shoot. You can flirt with your co-star and test out any toys you want to bring.

Q: What will I wear?
A: Wear what you feel sexy in! Don’t feel pressured to be anything you’re not — whether it’s pressure to be more feminine or masculine, shaved or hairy, etc… we hope that you’ll come to the set looking like your best confident sexy self. Some people think about their clothing as what they’d wear to a club if they wanted to look really hot. Others play up a character they have in mind, like a queer college kid, or a hot mechanic. Whether you’re wearing something that makes you (or your co-star) feel on fire, or, like you’ve just slipped into something more comfortable, what you choose to wear is entirely up to you. Though it’s general best practice not to wear obvious brand names, or to wear all black or all white clothes, for lighting reasons.

Q: Will I get free access to the site?
A: Yes, every model on CrashPadSeries.com receives a life-time membership to the website. You will also be given the option to receive a special 40% affiliate rate. See our Affiliates Page for more info about this commissions-based program.

Q: How long does it take for the shoot to go live?
A: The Episode will go live anywhere from about a few weeks to 2 months after the shoot date. When your character profile goes live, you’ll be given your model membership.
