IT jobs within the Arts

It is estimated that the creative economy accounts for around 1 in12 of UK jobs. Within the film sector there is a rising demand for people with strong IT skills and significant skills shortages in this and other areas, such as production managers, costume supervisors, hair and makeup experts, prosthetics and sound recording. The visual effects (VFX) sector has particular skills shortages. The skills needed for film are readily transferable to stage, conference management, gaming, festivals, concerts, TV and other media outlets, and most workers will have a "portfolio career", across several sectors. 

There is a similar picture in terms of stage careers, with an increasing use of technology and a rise in the demand of people with good technical skills. For every actor there are 10 supporting staff. [source GTAssociates]
