So much respect to the humans who speak out and continue to speak out every day aiming to create safer practices for our industry!!! It takes guts to stand up!!! 👏 we can do this together!!!
In my opinion, scenes depicting intimacy or sexual content are no different than stunt scenes and should be treated as such, with the proper coordinators and measures in place to protect everyone and ensure safety first and foremost.
That we STILL do not have adequate industry wide protections in place to protect actors simulating intimacy is completely insane. From my many years of experience as both an actor and a director of intimacy on screen, these scenes provide situations that can be dangerous.
THERE SHOULD 100 PERCENT BE STANDARDS AND PRACTICES SO THAT THIS DOESNT HAPPEN. AN INCIDENT MENTIONED HERE IS AWFUL, NOT AT ALL UNUSUAL AND AVOIDABLE. BRAVO TO THESE BRAVE WOMEN. https://t.co/I5xk9IdHnt via @thr
