The Nude Tuesday Podcast
Preparation: Tandi Wright and Perry Piercy
Nude Tuesday is a brand new 5-star comedy from Armagan Ballantyne and Jackie van Beek about a suburban couple who go to a new-age retreat as a last ditch attempt to save their marriage. Their path to reconnection is riddled with hilarity and humiliation as they seek to find themselves and each other.
In this episode of the podcast, we’re diving a little deeper on the behind the scenes part of the movie and talking to two people who were crucial to setting up the made up language and the nudity. Dialect coach Perry Piercy is an award-winning actor and director who has travelled the world instructing actors and presenters operating at the highest level on how they can use their voice most effectively. Perry constructed the rules for the made up language in Nude Tuesday and trained the actors on how to improvise within a dialect that doesn’t actually exist. Tandi Wright is a kiwi screen icon known for her appearances on Shortland Street, Nothing Trivial, 800 Words and recently, the black comedy sci-fi Creamerie. Tandi was Nude Tuesday’s intimacy co-ordinator, getting everyone ready for the actors to bare all on the big screen.
