We Believe

We believe racism has no place in our world or in our industry. We are trying to help build an industry where we all take care of each other physically, emotionally and mentally; where concern for fairness, kindness, understanding, and emotional wellness take precedence.

We condemn violence, hatred and injustice. We believe that an injustice against one person is an injustice against all people. We stand with the many who have peacefully protested and hope our voices are heard loud and clear and pave the way to lasting change.

Behind the Scenes was founded to provide assistance to entertainment technology professionals in need, no matter what color their skin, the language they speak, the religion they follow, or gender or sexuality they identify as. Our motto is, “Don’t leave your colleagues in the dark.” We want to shine a light into the dark corners of violence, hatred and injustice. We want to shine a light on this moment and the opportunity it represents; to become a better world that respects and protects the rights of every individual. A world that provides equal access to justice, economic opportunity, health care, and all-embracing social freedom.

Mental Health & Suicide Prevention Initiative

By its very nature our industry can impact your physical and emotional health due to long hours, pressure to push your body, and high workplace stress. This initiative, focusing on behavioral health, will be rolling out tools and resources designed to help you, or assist you in helping your colleagues. Find links to resources, an online self-assessment tool, and information about the initiative and programs in development.
