Intimacy Coordinating & Directing
Ensuring best practice for Intimacy in Film, TV and Live Performance
An intimacy coordinator adds values not only on set, during filming, but also in pre-production stages such as writing and casting.
Together, we'll collaborate on script development to ensure authenticity of the narrative. Whether it is LGBQTIA+, Simulated Sexual Violence, BDSM, or Kink, an Intimacy Coordinator assists by ensuring representation is accurate and accessible to audiences.
Involving an Intimacy Coordinator during casting is best practice for productions to ensure transparency, advocacy, and collaboration throughout each stage of development.
GETTING INTO THE BODY
for the performer
This work is for the performer wanting to get more in tune with their body to experience freedom on set during intimate scenes.
Using a multi tiered system of support, we work together to increase the awareness of personal boundaries and the body's physical needs for safety and comfort.
We'll explore how movement systems (Le Coq, Laban, etc.), yoga, meditation, and explorative dialogue can inform your practice, create more nuanced story telling, and increase confidence when navigating simulated intimacy for stage and screen.
Together, we craft compelling story by collaboratively working within the parameters of the performer's personal boundaries.
Working in tandem with the Director, HOD's and performer(s), we'll outline the creative vision for the scene, practical requirements, and choreograph intimate scenes with the consent of each individual, documenting the process as we go.
Working with an Intimacy Coordinator helps to create a repeatable, safe, and robust practice that enables the performer to find greater autonomy and empowerment in their work.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Working with Georgia on Spotlight was an absolute pleasure. She started off letting all of us know exactly what she would be doing as an IC and answering any questions we had, putting all of us at ease.
She took the time to speak with the actors and discuss what they were personally comfortable with so when we all came together again everyone was on the same page.
During rehearsals, she was patient and respectful, giving the actors the tools they needed. I would 100% recommend Georgia as an IC. Her love and passion for the work shines through and is infectious.
Jacquelyn Moran, ACTOR
I would highly recommend Georgia as an IC. She has a unique ability to understand to the needs of production and also to listen the needs and concerns of the cast members who have the job of delivering that vision.
As an actor, I was grateful for Georgia, who made the process - which can be a bit uncomfortable by nature - easy to follow and layered each part of the process step-by-step.
Georgia's skill, dedication, and sensitivity in working with intimacy saved our production.
Her intervention helped to create a safe space where actors felt they had a voice and dignity, and were able to deliver performances with carefully crafted intimacy that was choreographed to meet production's needs.
