What is STV Studios' response?
31st March 2023:
We respect STV Studios’ choice to defer to their trade body Pact, and hope they will encourage Pact to give the issues raised by “The Report”, due attention.
We will review progress achieved from industry approaches to Pact in the months ahead, and will endeavour to update member production companies, if progress has stalled, to encourage renewed focus.
1st April 2023:
Yesterday we shared with you the response from STV Studios to PiB’s report.
We’ve always put transparency first with Production is Broken, so with that in mind we want to share that we’ve since been sent worrying reports from multiple users of incidents regarding freelancer welfare occurring on STV Studios productions.
We of course appreciate what STV Studios have said in their statement and reiterate the need for significant change across the industry with regards to Production Management welfare. We also want to clarify that our posting of an organisation’s response should not be perceived as PiB providing an endorsement of them and we can’t speak for any individual experiences.
