Sandrine is a film director and actress based in Montreal. She also teaches acting and directing for screen at Concordia University.

With the professional concern to be at the same level as intimacy coordinators working in the USA (where the profession is now well established), she is currently completing her training with Intimacy coordinator Canada. Her mentor is Lindsay Somers. It is now with confidence that she offers her services as an intimacy scene coordinator.

Sandrine likes teamwork and is there primarily to help the vision of the director. Her role is, among other things, that of a liaison between the departments to ensure that the scenes of intimacy unfold smoothly, safely and without surprises. She also has the ability to support the director in setting up the choreography and/or to propose alternatives when this task is entreated to her.
