This video explores what happens when people of all types and ages are given a chance to return to being a kid again. A simple game of dress-up becomes a powerful metaphor for dropping taboos, releasing creative emotion, and for dramatic change. As a result, an innocent eroticism is found ... as well as getting intimate with 60 humans. 1983.
I edited EROTIC PLAY with two remotes taped on a table before me using my head pointer. What we do when we have no money and when we are ahead of the technology! We just made videos and put them in our closet. And now the same videos are being watched by people all over the world on THE FRANK MOORE CHANNEL [even on their television]! Thank God we didn't care whether people would ever see the stuff. We just did them to do them! And now we have a shit load of content!
Best Undressed takes a revealing look behind the scenes of the ever-controversial Miss Nude Australia Pageant. In this short extract we meet one of our main characters, Ellashaye, as she explains her passion for the competition and reveals her feelings about the industry and family.
'In this beauty pageant no one wants to save the world or the environment and there's no mention of feeding starving children. The judges are on a quest for those that shine while nude. Welcome to the politically incorrect Miss Nude Australia Pageant! But for a competition that is all front, Miss Nude Australia has a lot more going on behind the scenes than initially meets the eye'.
- Aired on SBS (Australia). Channel 4 (UK), Lifestyle U (Australia), Spiegel (Germany), Channel 1 (Israel)
- Became part of the Australian National Curriculum as part of gender studies
CRITICAL ACCLAIM FOR ‘Best Undressed:
“Deeply moving, achingly artistic and emotionally draining”
The Sydney Morning Herald, Australia

No mere gawp-athon: fleshing out the backstories of a clutch of contenders, [Martin] Taylor gave us lashings of emotion as well as cheeky voyeurism.
Metro TV, UK
“[Best Undressed] may well be the best documentary ever made”
People Magazine, Australia
... la piel no es el límite del cuerpo ... que son guiados por los sentimientos en un laberinto donde todo "parece ser" ... donde todo "se puede" ... las redes sociales se enredan a través de nuestro cuerpo causando estragos ... la piel oscura, piel clara, piel de la aceituna ... mía, la tuya ... la nuestra ... la piel que marca los límites, la piel que conecta ... la piel que suda, escalofríos, curiosidades ... piel que no sabe mentir, la piel que no puede mentir.
...the skin is not the boundary of the body... we are led by feelings into a maze where everything "seems to be"... where everything "can be"... the tangled social web goes through our bodies causing havoc... dark skin, fair skin,olive skin... mine, yours... ours... skin that marks the limits, skin that connects... skin that sweats, chills, freaks... skin that does not know how to lie, skin that cannot lie.

Love and hate collide in a complicated mother daughter relationship. Conversations frame themselves on the body. Without Real McCoy, John Rambo, and Cinderella none of this would occur.
