Beverly Hills, Calif., September 14, 2017 - In anticipation of the October 29th, 2017 premiere of the film, Starz released today the official trailer and key art for the new original documentary "NUDE" from Director and Producer Anthony B. Sacco (DGA Award Winner for the STARZ Original series "The Chair") and Producer Josh Shader (Television Critics Association Award Winner also for "The Chair") which follows treats! magazine founder Steve Shaw and photographer David Bellemere's NU Muses project.
"NUDE" - a feature-length documentary - explores perceptions of nudity in art by chronicling the creative process of fashion photographer David Bellemere. Commissioned by NU Muses founder Steve Shaw to shoot a fine art calendar of nude photographs to debut at Art Basel in Miami, Bellemere's unique methods and visual style are examined. The film also looks at the creative and business aspirations of Shaw, plus how social media shapes the lives of today's young models.
