Sex! The New Rules...

Carey Dodd Associates

Carey Dodd Associates is a small but respected casting agency that wants to be recognised for its innovative work and thinking in the entertainment industry across TV, film and theatre

Story

Mindful of the current media agenda about inappropriate behavior off set – we created a carefully staged campaign called #sexscenesonset – to formulate guidelines for both actors and directors when approaching scenes of sexual content and intimacy in TV, film and theatre. Working with the team at the agency we clarified the guidelines, identified an intimacy director who could employ them on set, teach them to actors and directors at workshops, and train up new Intimaxy Directors, and launched the story in the trade press, calling for Equity to engage with it.
