Sound Values - Value Sound

Sound professionals want to be respected and paid properly for what they do. They want their work to be valued. They want to work decent hours with proper breaks wherever possible. When they supply their own equipment, they want to be paid properly for it. Our campaign is underway. Use the link to find out more.

Say No to Exploitation in TV

For many, factual TV production is exploitative and can be dangerous. Support our campaign to improve conditions for some of the most vulnerable TV workers. Follow @nototvabuse Email
