Anonymous Reddit community launched called Transparency for TV Crew, sharing experiences of the slowdown.
An anonymous freelancer has quit the industry after reaching “breaking point” and has written an open letter on Reddit that has generated passionate responses.
The freelancer, who over the past decade has worked for notable indies including Blast! Dragonfly, and Wildstar Films but has been out of work for most of 2023, posted the letter two days ago on a rapidly growing new Reddit community called Transparency for TV Crew.
The community, which was set up two weeks ago in response to the struggles many are facing amid the commissioning slowdown, has 683 members and describes itself as being a place for UK freelancers “to share their stories, thoughts and advice in a safe, anonymous environment”.
