Entertainment Industry Support Services...
Corton Audio recognises the live entertainment & production industry as both a rewarding, yet sometimes very challenging industry for those who work within it! Studies show (from Entertainment Assist) that "Australian Technicians and Crew experience suicide ideation almost seven times more than the general public".
As we have worked within and around the entertainment industry for over a decade we see these statistics as a very scary and sad reflection of the industry. It is time we as an industry begin to reflect that no matter how important a show may be considered to be, money, work demands or the general industry should never take (or attempt to take) a persons life.
The often lonely, dark and hard hours of this industry can take it's toll without notice. Long work hours, extreme pressures, non-realistic work demands and a constant strive for personal best can lead anyone to a place where help is needed.
We could not have a website dedicated to our work in the entertainment and live production industry without quoting the following support services.
