Like every facet of the screen content industry, those in the business of producing, buying and distributing non-fiction and unscripted content are facing myriad challenges brought on by an ever-changing media landscape and evolving viewer habits. As the landscape fragments, however, those challenges are also matched with new and exciting opportunities for storytellers.
With all of this in mind, Realscreen is presenting its inaugural State of the Non-Fiction Nation survey. In a nutshell, the survey is intended to be a snapshot of what is happening in the unscripted/non-fiction industry today, to reflect where both producers and broadcasters feel their businesses are now, and where they are headed; to identify the key issues impacting the industry as it stands today, and the ones to watch for the future; and to determine what is the “state of the nation” for this industry at present.
All responses to this survey will be confidential. All disclosed data will be used solely by Realscreen to share collected findings with our readers in the January/February issue of Realscreen magazine.
We would appreciate responses by Thursday, Nov. 24. Our final deadline is Thursday, Dec. 1.
We thank you for your time with this survey, and hope that this undertaking will provide our readership with a substantial overview of the current climate for the non-fiction and unscripted production community, as well as opportunities for discussion around the issues impacting it today
