Getting Intimate with Normal People's Sex Scenes and Choreographing Teens with Wolf DNA | Intimacy Coordination with Ita O'Brien

This week, Ita O’Brien joins Rhianna and Michael to demystify the art of intimacy co-ordination. A recent and incredibly important addition to film sets, Ita explains her integral role in creating realistic and safe sex scenes, including working with Michaela Coel on I May Destroy You and Paul Mescal and Daisy Edgar-Jones on Normal People. But intimacy doesn't just mean sex, Ita's work extends to all physical contact and movement, such as building up believable parental relationships in Hanna or making zombies move in The Girl With All the Gifts. Listen to Wrap Party to learn more about one of the most important roles in modern film and TV craft.
