Strategic skills assessment for the creative media industry
Skillset is the Sector Skills Council for the Creative Media industry, representing eleven sub sectors which are grouped into four sectors of the DCMS Creative Industries classification. At the heart of the Creative Industries, the Creative Media sector includes companies involved in: Film, Television, Radio, Photo Imaging, Interactive Content Design, Publishing, Animation, Content for Computer Games, Commercials and Promos, Corporate Production, Postproduction and Visual Special Effects and Other Specialist Facilities. Within the wider definition of the creative industries, the Creative Media industries are bound by common output in the form of creative content and increasingly the boundaries between these business and sectors are becoming blurred. Whilst there are still key distribution platforms including; cinema, TV, books/print Media and online and mobile, companies creating content are doing so in a way that can be used for multiple platforms. The business context is providing an opening of channels for distribution and ‘multi platform content’ is key.
