Relevance of Intimacy Coordination in Film and Television
Being aware, and sensitive to media publicized situations: is our collective responsibility. In this era of the Time's Up and #Me Too movements we all have a role to play.
The Arts have always been at the forefront of inclusion: Creating a haven for all, whether professional or audience member.
Healing for our industry is a process. Ensuring all reasonable steps are taken to support the performers, can go a long way toward sending the right message. Ensure that they feel safer, heard, and seen. Hiring an Intimacy Coordinator can help send that message, in a tangible way.
LEAD THE WAY
Ensure that you are actively supporting not only your performers, but also everyone involved in the production. An Intimacy Coordinator is available as a support person and resource to everyone, whether cast, crew, or production.
Meet the changing needs of the industry. Lead by example. Your commitment to support makes a difference, in this new specialty area.
We live in an increasingly diverse world today. People are expressing a variety of identities on both the sexuality, and gender spectrum.
Have an expert on hand. An Intimacy Coordinator is trained and knowledgeable to support all people: regardless of sexuality, or gender identity. Hire a professional, and ensure there is an expert support person on hand.
The benefits of using this approach include:
Helping to reduce marginalization – this is by promoting sexuality and gender-inclusive concepts that help mitigate the marginalization of anyone in the workplace.
Promoting the production ethos – being clear that everybody is welcome.
