Intimacy Directing w/Olivia Osol - Ep# 161

This episode is a conversation I had with a new friend, Olivia Osol, talking about the Intimacy Directing workshop we attended back on 10-13-19. This workshop was for directors, actors, and stage managers to learn about directing/coordinating intimate scenes on film, TV, and on stage. I felt like these were concepts that could just as well be used by anyone outside of entertainment too. So, instead of just talking about it myself, I asked Olivia to come onto the podcast so we could have a conversation about what we learned and how this would help in the real world as well. You can find Olivia's podcast "I Stream, You Stream" on iTunes
