I hope you might be able to help me with a worthwhile project.
I’m helping out with a session at this year’s Edinburgh television festival entitled “HOW TO RUN A BETTER INDIE” which will feature the true stories of the worst things freelancers have ever had to do in the name of making great, and not so great, telly, and I’m looking to gather those examples.
I going to use actors/comedians to film a range of anonymous anecdotes (written in a way that will hide their identities) that reveal some of the lunatic demands placed upon freelancers during their career. We won’t be asking people to name names and all the anecdotes will be treated in the strictest confidence so participants shouldn’t worry about their career prospects.
This is a chance to vent and share horrifying or hilarious (or both) tales of working in telly. But it will have a purpose- we’ll screen the stories to a panel of influential industry insiders at the festival to see how they react and ask them what they’ll do to make the world we work in a better place.
I’d really appreciate it if you could forward/post/share/tweet this link www.tvhorrorstories.
wordpress.com which contains the details, among your members, facebook friends and colleagues or ask them to email their experiences to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you need any further information.
Thanks for taking the time to read this
