An Invisible Army The Role of Freelance Labour in Bristol's Film and Television Industries report aims to complement current statistical data on freelance labour by providing a detailed, qualitative portrait of how freelancers negotiate precarious careers within specific regional contexts. This report evidences that freelance work is strongly situated in place and locality and makes a vital contribution to the strength and sustainability of regional production. As such, defining the nature of freelance work also requires understanding the local cultural, political and economic contexts in which it takes place.
