5 Weirdest Jobs Hollywood Has To Offer (5 pics)
Hollywood is a world of its own and if you really want to work there you can do it. You just might not get the job you thought you would.
“If you’re filming a scene with an element of combat, you get a fight director. If you’re filming a dance, you get a choreographer, and if you have a sex scene, you get a … sexographer.” So said Michael Arnold, one of Hollywood’s only sexographers, in an interview with the UK Guardian. And you might well laugh at the idea of this, but you’ve come across his work if you’ve seen the recent Scorsese flick The Wolf of Wall Street. With all their moving parts, sex scenes are notoriously difficult to get right, and it only gets more complicated when you add people and props, and start asking for more complicated acrobatics. Which is why Michael Arnold will (for a price) choreograph your sex scene down to the smallest detail, working with the actors to define what they will and won’t do, and ensuring that the sex scene sets exactly the right tone.
