Demand in screen-entertainment industries ripe for UK

According to a report from PwC that was commissioned by Pinewood Studios, demand in the UK film, gaming and TV industries is growing.

Growth for high-end productions is being driven by the rise in consumer demand for home entertainment channels such as Netflix and Lovefilm, together with the drawing power of franchise entertainment that includes sequels, prequels and spin offs. Furthermore, casual gaming has become increasingly popular with the proliferation of mobile devices.

Stronger demand has prompted calls for the UK to take advantage of the potential for growth in these industries and exploit domestic talent and technology accordingly.
