1-day Intimacy in Film & TV Workshop: ARRANGED ON DEMAND – Please be in touch!
Intimate scenes are often challenging for both cast and crew. Similarly to a physically violent scene which can cause external damage if not handled properly, an intimate scene can cause internal damage that is not visible to the eye. Therefore, it is important that cast and crew who are working with an intimate scene are equipped with a technique that supports open communication, transparency and consent.
During the workshop the participants will have a unique opportunity to explore new tools for their work in film, TV and theatre both through the ethical guidelines and practical exercises.
- There will be no nakedness or nudity in this workshop
- Please bring copy of the text, notebook and pens
- Yoga mat, water and please wear clothes in which you can easily move in
COURSE DURATION: 10am – 5pm (please arrive by 9.45am for a 10am start)
This is a workshop that must begin to be implemented in all actors’ training! I feel empowered with the knowledge I’ve gained and now move forward having full awareness of the necessary standards required for an intimate scene. Pia is warm but firm on how to approach the industry, furthermore her passion on the topic is contagious and I loved learning in this environment. This workshop was a groundbreaking revelation to me. – Grace Butler, Actor
Such an insightful session with intimacy co-ordinator @pia_rickman on intimacy and acting. Came away from it feeling a lot more positive about performing intimate scenes and with a better awareness on how to speak up when uncomfortable. And most importantly, when to say no. – Charly Ayers, Actor
I have gained a lot more confidence when asked to do a self-tape for an audition and have recently filmed and sent a self-tape in for a part in a play and have been successful. – Joseph Parrish, Actor
Pia was encouraging, positive and nurturing while giving notes that helped me grow as an actor. She opened my mind to thoughts and ideas about character and context that I would not otherwise have considered. – Vanessa Owen, Actor
Pia was always going up to them (actors) and working with them to find the essence of the scene and ultimately deliver the best performance. She creates a safe environment for the actor to work and try new things. I can truly say it was very inspiring and her passion was truly contagious for everyone in the room. – Alessandro Montalbano, Director
