Intimacy coordinators have gained significant recognition and success in the entertainment industry, particularly in film, TV, theatre, dance, and opera. Their primary role is to ensure the well-being and comfort of actors during scenes of intimacy and/or scenes involving partial or full nudity.
In recent years, the fashion industry has been undergoing a transformative shift towards inclusivity, diversity, and empowerment. Introducing intimacy coordinators into fashion and modeling can further enhance this positive change by providing models with a safe and respectful environment during shoots and performances that involve intimate or vulnerable moments.
The panel discussion, featuring renowned industry experts, will shed light on the crucial role intimacy coordinators play in creating a safe and supportive environment for performers. IC en Scene, a leading intimacy coordination agency, works closely with directors and actors to stage all things intimate, from a casual kiss to a sexually explicit scene, for film, theater, and photography. Their expertise ensures the actors’ security and guides them through the process, while also ensuring that the cast and crew fully understand how the intimacy fits into the narrative. They prioritize the safety and ongoing consent of those participating in the intimacy and provide clear steps on how to report harassment. Additionally, IC en Scene emphasizes the importance of communicating and agreeing upon the expectations and conditions of the intimacy prior to blocking the scene(s), as well as providing actors with time and a safe place to adjust and get out of character afterwards.
Moderated by Heather Ondersma, the panel discussion will feature esteemed panelists Asha Cybele, Olivia Ku, Carla Hughes, and Cassidy Kaufman. These experts will share their insights and experiences in the field of intimacy coordination, providing attendees with valuable knowledge and perspectives.
Olivia Ku emphasizes the significance of intimacy professionals, stating, “Intimacy professionals play a pivotal role in all forms of art, serving as architects of safe and empowering spaces, allowing artistic expressions to flourish with dignity, respect, and unyielding courage.”
Screenwriter and Influencer Carla Hughes brings her unique perspective as a Ford fashion model to the discussion. She shares, “As a 90’s top model, I saw the need for change in the fashion industry. It would have been helpful to have an Intimacy Coordinator on casting calls. We were coerced into crossing boundaries in the name of art.”
This event aims to educate and engage attendees in a dynamic conversation about the importance of intimacy coordination in the entertainment and fashion industries. Whether you are an actor, model, director, producer, or simply interested in the behind-the-scenes aspects of these industries, this panel discussion promises to be enlightening and informative.
