Description

Farm Gate Production And Women In Film Television NSW presents

Coordinating on set Intimacy with Annie Murtagh-Monks

How do you navigate intimate and sexual scenes in film and television shoots serving the directors vision while keeping the actors safe?

Following the recent changes to the Screen Australia code of conduct and the continued development of the #metoo movement, preventing sexual harassment and providing safe work environments is essential on film and television shoots.

WIFT WA co-founder, casting director and acting coach Annie Murtagh-Monks (Last Train to Freo, Drift, The Heights) recently received training in Perth and London from UK Intimacy Coordinator Ita O’Brien. New On-Set Intimacy Guidelines have been developed by Ita O’Brien in consultation with other Intimacy Coordinators and are being adopted by production companies in the UK, Australia and the USA.

With 25 years experience as an acting coach & casting director, Annie Murtagh-Monks has now trained as an intimacy co-ordinator and will be offering a half-day workshop on ways to implement these guidelines and will demonstrate how you can use a simple effective process to rehearse any intimate scene.

During this workshop participants will learn ways to assist actors perform an intimate scene through a process of establishing consensus and agreement on nudity, touching, what intimacy coverings might be required and how to choreograph an intimate scene to effectively bring the vision of the director to the scene. It results in repeatable scenes where actors feel safe and comfortable in creating what looks passionate and powerful without the actor feeling in any way violated. Filming scenes where cast need to kiss or simulate sex can be challenging for directors, actors and crew alike. This four hour workshop will benefit producers, directors, and actors and offer clarity in ways to provide a supportive and creative on-set environment.

On Set Intimacy Guidelines have been developed by Ita O’Brien in collaboration with other intimacy coordinators.

When: 4-8pm, Saturday 15 June 2019

Where: Tamworth Regional Council Library Art Gallery

Cost: $66 plus BF

Tea and Coffee will be provided
