Electronic production services, including film, TV, music, and other forms of entertainment, are the future of work, according to a new report from the Institute for Digital Music (IDM), a non-profit organisation based in London.
The report, titled The Future of Electronic Production Services, identifies the need for a new “digital production workforce”.
The report’s findings are based on a survey of 3,500 people who are working in electronic production and distribution in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, Sweden, Canada, Italy, and the United States.
It has been published in full on IDM’s website.
‘Digital production workforce’ is needed The report is based on the IDM survey of the digital production workforce.
The survey, conducted from April 2017 to February 2018, surveyed over 5,000 people in the music and music-related industries, who were asked: “If you could be a producer, what would you be working on?”
The results of the survey revealed that nearly a third of respondents were interested in the “role of digital production”.
“Digital production is becoming increasingly important in the entertainment industry,” said the report’s lead author, Adam Vella.
“This means that we need to find a digital production production workforce to support them.”
The survey also revealed that digital production is often seen as a “digital service” rather than a “workplace”.
“There are many people working in the digital world, but they are often seen more as a service, rather than working in their own right,” said Vella, a researcher with the IDC and the International Centre for Information Services.
“Digital technology is an emerging force in the production of all forms of media, and we must not neglect the needs of those working on this new form of production.”
However, there are many ways to be a digital producer, the report said.
There are digital music services such as Soundcloud and Spotify that allow users to create and share music.
There is also the “sharing economy”, where people are creating content on their smartphones or tablets.
“In this context, we also need to ensure that we are building the digital ‘workforce’ to support this shift,” said Dr Vella in a statement.
“The digital production industry has seen rapid growth in recent years, and is a key part of this shift.
Digital production needs to be built for the future, and it is up to us to support it.”
The report identified a number of ways in which people can become a digital producers.
These include: being able to produce in a variety of formats, from music to film to games
