We look for the rise and fall of the breath in the lungs.

The role of an intimacy coordinator is still fairly new in the world of film and TV but one that is fast gaining adoption in production houses including the BBC and Netflix.

Ita has worked on productions including Normal People, Sex Education, I May Destroy You, The Dig and It’s a Sin.
