  • Joey Joe-Jo

    Brown Bag Films. unless the studio begins to treat their staff with some
    respect they will not keep the talented people who make their current
    success possible.

    rubbish wages. artists kept on short term
    contracts through legal system exploits. excessive unpaid overtime with
    no time in lieu. artists being conned out of their rightful titles
    jeopardizing their future employment. half the studio being
    kept working in a sealed box with no natural light where everyone is
    constantly sick and depressed. those at the top dont care, they know the
    artists have few places to turn to in ireland and will continue to
    exploit them. “but look” say the media, “they have office dogs so it
    must be a amazing place to work”

    bbf reputation is at an all
    time high..staff morale is at an all time low. so many depressed people.
    nobody can speak out or risk being fired with nowhere else to go
    besides emigrating. hence the anonymous message. very few have any
    loyalty left. most want to leave. this is not how you nurture
    creativity.

    Darragh and Cathal, I hope you taking note
