How to support the film, music and games you love

How quickly can you name your favourite film? 5,4,3,2,1…got it? Now, have you ever thought about the time that went into making it? We’re talking the acting classes, the auditions and the time spent both in front of and behind the camera – there’s a lot that goes into producing the movies that make us laugh, cry and everything in between.

It also takes time to make great music, from finding that perfect beat, to the days spent in the studio laying down the track and then mastering the final song. 

Whether you’re binge watching a new TV series, listening to your favourite album on repeat, or playing the latest video game release all weekend – have you ever thought about the amount of time you spend with these things you love that creators have put their time and effort into? 

When you take just a second of your time to get the content you love from genuine sites, you’re helping to make the time and value invested by all those who played a part in making it worth it.

Whether you simply consume or even create content yourself, you can help support the UK’s creative industries by:

  1. Working out how much time you spend on your creative passion.
  2. Noting down that time on a piece of paper as well as #GetItRight.
  3. Taking a photo and sharing it on Twitter or Instagram using #GetItRight.

Let’s show that everyone’s time is valuable and join the conversation.
