Intimate Scenes and Consent

Professional Activities


On this panel we explore the idea of consent in the context of shooting intimate scenes for a film.

What role do power dynamics play? What room is there for creative improvisation? Do we treat consent in the same way when working with adults as we do when working with children or teenagers?

In this three-way discussion we hear firsthand, expert accounts from an intimacy coordinator, coach and production manager to set out common ground and tease out any contradictions from different perspectives.

  • Monday 13 November, noon to 2 pm
