AORTA films’ shoots operate on the basis of explicit, ongoing, enthusiastic consent. 

Recently, we shared a statement here on Consent + Accountability in hopes of clarifying our values and offering transparency around our policies. In our desire to articulate our personal ethics, we overreached as a business. Operating a small, DIY, grassroots studio continues to be a huge learning process for us. When we veer off course we’re committed to acknowledging it and making changes.

We are taking time to rewrite our statement on consent and strengthen our internal policies. We ask for your patience and understanding as we engage in this process of reflection and growth. 

We welcome your thoughts and feedback at helloAORTAfilms@gmail.com, and sincerely thank those who have already provided guidance. 

With thanks,
AORTA films
