One of the most important and high profile issues to emerge in the theatre and screen industries in recent years has been the calls for better practise both in the direction and performance of intimate scenes on set and on stage, and in our industry as a whole. The spotlight has very much turned to the role of the Intimacy Co-ordinator/Director who ensures that best practice is adhered to. Elizabeth (Lizzy) Talbot is a certified Intimacy Coordinator and Intimacy Director, working in Theatre and Television/ Film and is currently working on Bridgerton (Netflix), The Never’s (HBO), The Witcher Series 2 (Netflix) and The Girlfriend Experience (Starz). This video will be a great opportunity for you to hear the expert (Lizzy) help you apply her tips to your working practice.
