Week 7: Unit 3: w/c 14.11: Working practices

Within the media industry today there are different ways to enter into the career of media whether that is through being a freelancer,self-employed or an employee that works on a long-running show such as strictly come dancing or x-factor.

Freelancer :

This is one of the most common form of employment they are self-employed. – It’s all about the reputation  a freelancer has to do their own taxes and also work for other people in a short amount of times.

Pros :

It is a very flexible job in which enables you to build up contacts and reputation and there is no joining requirements either.

Cons:

It can be stressful through having so many jobs being offered to you at once and sometimes you may have to turn down good jobs.

Self employed :

  • Paying your own tax
  • Its you buisness
  • Creating the media production yourself

Pros :

  • You can make what you want at the same time as being in the industry you want to be in.
  • Easy to start however, it will cost money to even start the buisness.

Cons :

  • You have to support your own income
  • Need money to start

Employment:

Pros

  • You are employed by someone else so you don’t have as much responsibility other than when you are self-employed or a freelancer.
  • You are more secured within a job as it will be employed by successful companies.

Cons:

  • Lack of variety and not allowing you to do what you do want to film.
  • short-term contracts.
