Build Your Career as an Intimacy Professional!

Elevate your career, make meaningful connections, and contribute to a more inclusive entertainment industry

At IDC, our mission is to help you create a successful and fulfilling career in one of the fastest-growing areas of entertainment.

Liquid error: Nil location provided. Can't build URI.

We are here to empower YOU - a passionate and committed artist - to move from the challenges of barely getting by in an industry that exploits your talents, to thriving as a leader in one of the fastest-growing areas of entertainment. 

I'm Ready to Get Started >>

If the stress, frustration, and overwhelm of working in an industry that perpetuates harm has taken a toll on you,  maybe you've even contemplated quitting despite knowing that you were born to work in entertainment...

It's time to STOP sacrificing your boundaries, well-being, and joy and instead, approach the industry in a new way. Be a part of disrupting the harm, and finally build a sustainable career for yourself in this industry. 

If you're anything like many of the artists we've worked with, you've been trying to make it happen in the entertainment industry for quite some time, wearing various hats like performing, producing, directing, writing—or maybe a mix of all those roles and more!

You've been looking for stability in one of the most challenging industries in the world - not just because of the high competition - but because this is an industry that has historically exploited the people within it.

The reality of this has often meant...

  • Putting up with harassment from those in power, because you've been told that speaking up will cost you the next job

  • Avoiding projects that involve intimacy because of the harm and exploitation often associated with these moments

  • Working long hours and extra days without adequate compensation

  • Saying "yes" to things you don't want to do because you want to prove that you are "collaborative" and a "team player" - hoping that this will help you get re-hired in the future

  • Being afraid to confront problems for fear of being labeled as "difficult"

  • Wrestling with the decision to either stay in an industry that doesn't always respect your agency and body autonomy or leave it entirely

You've probably, more than once, felt like you're standing at a crossroads, wondering if it's time to give it all up - Maybe you even did at one point - but you just keep coming back becuase you love this industry too much to let it go. 

So... it's time to approach the problem from a new angle - by putting yourself in a position to create change. You can make this industry better because you know what it's like to be without agency and autonomy. 

If you're ready to build a stable career that you love and make this industry better for everyone, we've got you covered...

You CAN make a difference for yourself and for others. 

There is a growing opportunity for you to be a part of disrupting the harm and position yourself to step into your power, agency and autonomy (and help others do the same!)

Working as an intimacy professional allows you to stay connected to the industry you love - the stories you love - in a positive way that includes advocating for the creative needs of those with diverse bodies and lived experiences. 

As an intimacy professional, you get to be a part of making a positive change while doing fulfilling work that is respected and appreciated by those around you.


Imagine that you had the opportunity to:

  • Collaborate with like-minded artists to tell the some of the most beautiful and vulnerable stories that shape the human experience

  • Receive acclaim, not just for your art, but also for how you create your art
     
  • Ensure actors maintain their personal agency and body autonomy - things you wish someone had done for you in the past
  • Have the skills and flexibility to work on BOTH TV/Film Sets AND Theatrical Stages

  • Become a leader in one of the fastest-growing industries in entertainment

  • Set and uphold boundaries that prevent burnout and make you a stronger collaborator

That's what it means to be an intimacy professional!

Becoming an intimacy professional is the best way to create a fulfilling and impactful career in the entertainment industry.

Intimacy work is one of the fastest-growing areas in entertainment. In 2016 this role barely existed, and now it has become a near requirement for all SAG-AFTRA TV/Film sets and this work can be seen on almost every Broadway stage! 

Because of the newness of this industry, the demand for intimacy professionals is outpacing the number of qualified and skilled artists to fill these roles. 

When you have the skill set to successfully support these scenes, you have the opportunity to become sought-after for the expertise you bring to production, creating stability for yourself within this industry. 

Beyond that, you're performing a role that is integral to disrupting the patterns of harm that have been present in this industry for the last fifty-plus years!

You get to help people feel and BE safe, appreciated, respected, and valued... and YOU become appreciated respected, and valued in return

Invaluable in My Professional Life.

"IDC's training has made me a more holistic artist (and person) which has been invaluable in my professional life. My training has been a priceless resource in my prep for projects."

Do It For You. Because You're Worth It.

"I love IDC training -- it has developed my skills in communicating and taught me to forge healthy boundaries as my practice took root in compassion instead of fear. [IDC] is true to its core values of anti-racism, creativity, excellence, integrity, and sustainability. Do it for you. Because you're worth it."
