Equity on Demand:
Women in SVoD
Sat 5 May, 13:00 - Theatre 2, HOME.
60 mins - £7/£5 conc
Over the past decade, women accounted for fewer than 30% of fictional series television writers in the US and the UK. The advent of SVoD (Subscription Video on Demand) ‘television’ such as original series produced by Netflix and Amazon Studios, offers a new production model in which television becomes more flexible in length, content and production process. Despite this renaissance, women television writers remain far outnumbered by male counterparts. Based on research by PhD candidate Kirsten Stoddart, this session explores gendered hiring practices, career barriers and the professional experience of creative femmes.
Joining Kirsten is Delia-Rene Donaldson (writer of Venus vs Mars, Sky Living) and Jo McGrath (co-founder, Walter Presents).
