The UK’s creative industries sector contributed £109 billion to the economy in 2021. Accounting for 2.29 million creative industry jobs in the year to September 2021, the sector workforce has remained strong through a tough period. Working in the sector, you’ll have the opportunity to pursue practical roles such as an artist, actor or interior designer, or administrative or managerial jobs such as an arts administrator or museum curator. There’s an increasing overlap with the media and information technology (IT) sectors in relation to the use of digital technology to produce and deliver creative content. This is noticeable in roles such as web designer, animator and game designer. You’ll also find a crossover between this sector and marketing, advertising and PR, with advertising in particular considered a key component of the creative industries. In this project you will learn how to take your movie pitch from concept to release.
