INTIMACY COORDINATOR,
JAZZY ELLIS

Do you have a scene for film or television that involves nudity/hyper-exposed work, simulated sex acts, and/or intimate physical contact? Then I recommend you hire an Intimacy Coordinator.  The Intimacy Coordinator (IC) is:

  • the advocate for the performers,

  • the liaison between actors and production,

  • and the movement coach and choreographer.

ICs set up a structure and help facilitate the scene.  Intimacy Coordinators are similar to Stunt Coordinators, but instead of stunts, we're coordinating intimacy.

 

If your scene requires an Intimacy Coordinator, book a call or email me and we'll talk through the next steps to make sure your production makes the safest decisions for everyone involved from the beginning.

If you're not sure if you need to hire an Intimacy Coordinator, check out the SHORT QUIZ and other resources below.  And of course, you can always, book a call or email me and we'll talk through your safest options.
