THE NEW NORMAL
With the rapidly evolving changes in the entertainment industry, the reality of the #metoo era and the complications of coordinating, negotiating, producing and filming, the entire industry is embracing what it means to have a qualified, credentialed, and experienced intimacy expert on hand.
The executives of film, television and video game production are working to create environments that are safe for performers and employees, while maintaining productivity, speed, and the production team’s overall creative vision. In Los Angeles and beyond, from pre-production through shoot days, from on set to post-production, having someone to coordinate intimacy, nudity, touching and sexual moments on screen is vital to having a production run smoothly and stay protected.
