Intimacy On-Camera 101

Weekend Workshop 

June 6&7 10am- 2pm  

As actors, our job is to tell stories about the human condition. Many times these stories will include intimacy, and this can be intimidating to actors who haven't worked on that kind of material yet. In this workshop our Artistic Director Salvatore Antonio will explore how to manage on-camera intimacy with information and consent-based exercises. In his acting career and as playwright/director, Salvatore has had extensive experience both performing and directing scenes of an intimate nature both on film and on stage.

 

This workshop will help introduce actors to new industry standards around filming scenes of an intimate/sexual nature, and give tips and tools on how to prepare for these kinds of shoots. Topics covered will include: on-set protocols in an around rehearsing and filming intimacy, units of physical measurement/proximity to help simulate intimacy, best practices and guidelines set out by the actor's unions, exercises and discussions around consent, choreography, and communication to ensure a safe and respectful experience.

 

Don't wait until you book that part and wonder what comes next, educate yourself and be prepared.

 

* N.B: This workshop will not require participants to perform any elements involving simulated sexual acts/contact, or disrobing of any kind.*

 

All participants must be 18+ years of age.
