TV's Future in NI

On Monday the 19th of January, 2009, from 6-8pm at the BBC's Blackstaff House in Belfast, Equity is offering a free seminar on the future of television, called "Television Is Changing - Are You Ready?"

It's open to Equity members, producers, agents, casting directors and other industry professionals.

Join Equity at this interactive seminar designed to give you the opportunity to find out about the work that Equity has been doing in response to the expansion and development of new technology in the world of television production, broadcasting and throughout the entertainment industry.

The key themes covered include:
  • TV Is Changing: The way actors work and are paid will change as a result of the revolution that is taking place in broadcasting. This campaign is part of Equity’s effort to provide you with the information you need to help you make informed choices about the implications of the coming changes.
  • Pan-Industry Negotiations: Equity has been meeting with representatives of all the major broadcasters and independent producers in the British television industry with the goal of negotiating a pan-industry agreement that will bring together the best of the many individual deals that currently exist.
  • New Media Deals: Find out about the work the union has already done in areas such as mobisodes, podcasts, internet-only productions and games.
Places are limited, so if you wish to attend you must book a place in advance: details are listed on Northern Ireland Screen's web site.
