The screen based industries have grown at a phenomenal rate in recent years and are experiencing skills shortages in most areas. Yet at the same time, the diversity of these industries does not fully reflect the population of the UK. It will be vital to open up more opportunities to minority communities in order that we fill these skills gaps and develop the latent talent that lies within those groups.
To do this we need to survey VFX, post production and animation workers to fully understand the composition of our workforce. We can then target initiatives in the right place and in the right way to boost inclusion effectively. We also seek your opinions on how best to do this.
Please be candid with your responses. Some of the questions are of a very personal nature, so please be assured that this survey is entirely anonymous and there is no way of identifying the respondents. We will only be publishing aggregate data and we will respect your privacy at all times.
We also take this opportunity to assess the impact of the ending of free movement as the UK leaves the EU and the progress of our EU workers towards achieving settled status in the UK.
