Hollywood Going To Trial CGI Sex Scenes To Prevent COVID-19 Spread

It’s been revealed that many Hollywood studios are going to trial doing CGI sex scenes in their movies to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

We live in very strange times right now with this whole Coronavirus pandemic.

The movie industry has been pretty much decimated because of it.

The only thing that seems to be intact is The Mandalorian Season 2 which is still coming out this October.

It was also revealed today that Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse 2 is now in production.

Anyway, it was revealed that Hollywood studios are going to trial doing CGI sex scenes moving forward.

This is in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 onset between actors and crew.

So, Califonia’s governor, Gavin Newsom has allowed filming to start on June 12th — however, he did state that they had to abide by the new social distancing guidelines.

According to an in-depth document circulated by the film editors’ union, sex scenes will need to be rethought in order to ensure the safety of all actors.

All crew members will also be required to wear masks, visors, and other personal protective equipment (PPE) and will be instructed to frequently wash their hands.

These rules will be enforced by “coronavirus compliance officers,” who will be present on-set at all times.

On June 1st, the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers’ Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force released similar guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19 once production resumes.

The Task Force proposed frequent testing, and widespread use of PPE, as well as “special considerations” for cast and crew working in close quarters.

That said, the report didn’t specifically mention sex scenes, yet it does recommend that there be less contact between actors: “Consider measures to minimize scenes with close contact between performers, such as amending scripts or use of digital effects.”
