Are you working on a film, television, or commercial project that involves scenes with nudity, simulated sex acts, intimate physical contact, or other types of hyper-exposure? In that case, I highly recommend hiring an Intimacy Coordinator. As an Intimacy Coordinator (IC), I fulfill multiple roles: advocating for the performers, serving as the liaison between actors and production, and providing guidance as a movement coach and choreographer.
Intimacy Coordinators play a crucial role in setting up a structured and safe environment for these scenes. Similar to Stunt Coordinators, we specialize in coordinating intimate moments rather than stunts. Our primary focus is on ensuring the well-being and safety of everyone involved.
If your production requires an Intimacy Coordinator, I encourage you to book a call or send me an email. We can discuss the necessary steps to ensure that your project makes informed decisions and prioritizes the safety of all participants from the very beginning.
If you're unsure whether hiring an Intimacy Coordinator is necessary for your project, I welcome you to reach out as well. We can have a conversation to explore your options and determine the best approach to maintain a safe working environment for everyone involved.
