Regarding graphic / verbal vulgarity:
While it is not my position to interfere with free speech, freedom of expression, or other freedoms which pertain to "art", I reserve the right to decline production work for, or with any entity which engages in graphic, or verbal vulgarity / nudity beyond the legal and acceptable use of language / visuals associated with R rated productions as set forth by the FCC, and film associations.
If a production I produce work for violates the above after I have submitted work, and I have not been informed of the intent to include vulgarity of any kind in the production, I reserve the right to demand the discontinuation of the use of and or removal of my work from the production without refund for work which I have performed in good faith, unless the producer agrees to remove the vulgar content.
It is the producer's responsibility to provide, in advance of production, a copy of the entire script, and a statement setting forth the exact content of the production to be considered.
Any works found to contain illegal or pornographic matter which violates federal, state, and or local laws will be reported.
