I’ve often wondered who takes care of talent if they’re hurt on set. In the world of Spiegler, when a girl gets hurt on set, whoever booked her has to take care of business. However Spiegs has never had a girl seriously injured or if he has hes never shared it with me. So what happens when talent is temporarily disfigured say to her face? Who pays?
Say a director hires a few top tier girls. Let’s call them Harlem Hottie, Kasey Lee Mondale and Glamorous Stacy. The director who’s shooting um lets say a comic book remake is looking for his film to be as realistic as possible and asks the girls to do some of their own stunts. Harlem Hottie is playing a handicapped person and is forced to use two walking canes so she isn’t asked to do any stunts. But Kasey and Glamorous agree to do certain things including maybe jumping through a fake glass window. From what I hear these windows break really easily, so no problem, right? But something goes terribly wrong and when Kasey goes through the glass, her face is cut up and she may possibly need stitches…
One would assume that the set has insurance or workers comp, but that isn’t always the case. In this case, let’s say there is no insurance. Let’s say this Kasey works at least 15 times a month x 1000 bucks. Is this porn director gonna pay her that amount? Is he gonna give her half that? I would think this porn producer would feel bad and at least pay all her medical and throw 10 grand her way.
But what if this porn producer wasn’t a good person? What if he was such a dick that Harlem, Kasey and Glamorous decided to boycott the promotional part of this movie? And instead of counting his blessings that he didn’t get dragged into court, he and his associates took to being disrespectful on twitter?
I mean, could you imagine if this producer and his people used threats of violence towards Harlem Hottie? When all she was guilty of was keeping her mouth shut? How does that work? You fuck a girl over on money, hurt another and then have the nerve to say fucked up shyt on twitter? Crazy, right? But fortunately this is just a story and some what ifs. This could never happen in real life since nobody is that stupid.
Anyway, maybe one of my readers could explain to me how the money would change hands in the event of an injury. Feel free to email me if you don’t want to explain publicly… firstname.lastname@example.org and, of course, it’s a secret.
