Eight young independent filmmakers have been arrested in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina after witnesses saw them filming a scene in which an actress appeared to be "fellating or simulating fellatio" on an actor, TheSmokingGun.com reported today (Tuesday). The group was reportedly filming a movie titled Beach Week, a comedy about a group of college students coming together during spring break. One of the filmmakers insisted that "there was nothing illegal going on." A police report noted that the witnesses (referred to in the report as the "victims") saw no nudity. In a demonstration of art imitating life imitating art, the scene in question was to have concluded with an actor portraying a cop issuing a summons to the actor and actress for "their inappropriate display of affection." A jacket embroidered with the word "Police" was confiscated by the arresting officers, who also seized the crew's camera equipment and the Beach Week script.
The movie begins filming in the UK.
