Question 1 of 11
How are you feeling today?
On average, how many hours of quality sleep do you think you get a night?

Working in the film and TV industry can mean we are more susceptible to poor sleep due to unpredictable or long hours, working nights, or lack of routine. 

In an average week, how often do you exercise to the point of being out of breath?

This is dedicated time for physical movement beyond moving around as part of everyday activities, like on set or in the office.

Do you take time out to switch off from work and unwind?

This might be spending time with loved ones, or taking part in a hobby that isn’t related to work. The film and TV industry can be all-consuming and it can be a challenge to take time out for ourselves.

How often do you have more than four alcoholic drinks in a week?

How often do you feel isolated or unsupported at work?

How often are you taking on too much or unable to say 'no'?

The film and TV industry is notorious for tight deadlines and budgets, which often lead to additional pressures that can interfere with your ability to set personal boundaries.

If you have caring responsibilities, how often does work conflict with them?

Juggling paid work and unpaid caring is even harder, and some carers feel they won’t be supported or seen as able to do their jobs if they ask for help.

How often are you worried about finances?

Our research shows that financial worries can be a problem particularly for freelancers and people with caring responsibilities who work in the film and TV industry.
