WHAT IS AN ON-SET INTIMACY COORDINATOR?

Just like one would hire a stunt coordinator for Film & TV when the script calls for a fight scene or the use of weapons - why wouldn't you hire an intimacy coordinator when the script calls for hyper exposed work like intimacy, nudity & sexual content?

Why wouldn't we treat scenes of intimacy with the same kind of focus, respect, detailed communication and preparation as action scenes!

 

Especially in the aftermath of #MeToo and #TimesUp it is essential to establish best practices to protect actors and production alike and achieve desired results on film through believable action & choreography, and skillful communication between the various departments.

 

As your On-Set Intimacy Coordinator I ensure the safety - emotional as well as physical - for the actors and help the filmmakers bring their vision onto the screen around sexual, intimate content, which often can create awkwardness on set when not addressed correctly.

  • For the production company this means: avoiding problems on set, getting your shooting day completed on schedule and within liability protection.

  • For the director this means: assistance with expertly communicating your ideas with regard to delicate sexual topics and realizing them onto film.

  • For the actor this means: someone's got your back, clarifying boundaries & consent in order to inspire your best performance.

 

WHEN EVERYBODY FEELS SAFE - THE BEST WORK CAN HAPPEN!

 

  • I will be the liaison - the middleman and facilitator - between the director & producers and their vision, and the actors.

 

  • I will help communicate and implement proper protocols for scenes containing intimacy, nudity and simulated sex.

 

  • I will assist in choreography / movement / action to ensure safety for the actors and desired results for production.

 

WHEN / WHY SHOULD YOU HIRE AN INTIMACY COORDINATOR?

 

  • Whenever a nudity rider is needed in a Film & TV project (sexual intimacy, nudity, simulated sex, sexual assault, etc).

 

  • Whenever a power dynamic is involved in an intimate scene (example: series regular in an intimate scene with a guest actor).

 

  • ​If an actor feels the need for support with sensitive, intimate and sexual material (choreography, communication, boundary setting, etc).

 

  • ​If a director feels the need for support to communicate sensitive, intimate and sexual material to actors in order to achieve the best possible result and the realization of his vision.

 

  • If production wants to create a safer environment on-set for themselves, cast & crew through the establishment of protocols in hyper exposed work surrounding intimacy, nudity and simulated sex.
