Intimacy on Screen specialises in facilitating best practice for intimacy, simulated sex and nudity for screen content. With experience in directing and producing we know the importance in getting things done in a time efficient manner, with knowledge in cinematography we know how a lens change can effect an intimate scene, with experience in post production we can assist with shooting for the edit.
From indépendant projects to fully funded productions we can come customise services to meet your budget and needs.
If you require an Intimacy Director for live performance please feel free to get in touch and we can recommend a trained and experienced practitioner for your stage production.
