About The Event

Governors Anya Adams and Mary Lou Belli, along with their Peer Group Executive Committee, invite members of the Directors Peer Group to:

Directing Intimacy Workshop

Session Description: This three-hour online workshop centers on directing relationships, nudity and simulated sex scenes.

In this session we'll discuss:

  • the framework of boundaries and consent
  • the role of the intimacy coordinator
  • IC collaboration with the director in prep and in production
  • SAG's casting guidelines for nudity and simulated sex acts
  • language for SAG riders for actors, body doubles and stunt performers
  • language for directing physical actions and discussing body parts
  • best practices of choreography for comfort, safety and performance
  • privacy garments - what they are, what they are called, what body parts they cover and how the IC works with wardrobe to help facilitate their use
  • a framework that considers ethics, religious beliefs, sexuality and trauma experiences – how this can inform the work and help make intimate sets safer for actors and crew members
  • practice exercises with intimate scene work from scripted television shows

Led by Dr. Rachel Raimist, Episodic TV Director and Directors Peer Group Member
