An adult film industry invoice is used by film studios producing adult video content to pay actors. actresses, crew, talent scouts, and those associated with the production of adult videos.
What is the Adult Film Industry?
The adult film industry is known for the creation of sexually explicit content (video, photography, writing) for commercial purposes. The entire industry is made up of actors and actresses, filmmakers, producers, editors, directors, writers, and agents. Those that are not paid salary may use this invoice to request payment for delivered services or products. Most performers are considered independent contractors, therefore an invoice is needed to show proof of payment. No one under the age of 18 years old is allowed to work nor receive payments in the adult film industry. Due to the Child Protection and Obscenity Enforcement Act, copies of all payments including invoices sent and received to actors/actresses, need to be saved for at least 5 years for documentation purposes.
Adult Film Jobs
When most people think of adult film jobs, they solely think of the performers but in fact – performers are not hired on salary but rather on a contract. The majority of jobs within the adult firm industry include everything except that of performers. Many of the jobs available within the adult film industry have to do with the production side of the industry, which include video editing, studio lighting, background designers (creating sets), producers and so forth.
Adult Film Actor/Actress Salary
Like any other independent contractor, it’s hard to pinpoint the take home pay (salary) of an adult film actor or actress. Giving out generalizations or statistics not based on any facts, as there isn’t any available according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, would be misleading. However, there is information to believe that adult film performers can make anywhere between $800 to $10,000 per scene (movie).
