If you have a good idea for a movie or series, there is a lot of work that you need to do to give the idea a chance to actually be written and produced.

A great starting point is the Screen Australia publication – Getting Started: Film, TV, Online & Interactive. This guide provides an overview of the types of training opportunities, work experience and networking initiatives available to newcomers, as well as to those currently working in the industry looking to develop their skills.

You should also read through the Top Tips for Regional Filmmakers page on our website, check out our upcoming events and program on Screenworks Learn pages and watch some of our Recorded Webinars.

Screen Australia also has great information about Starting In The Industry and Funding and Support. You should also get familiar with the state or territory funding body where you live – contact details and links are available on our website.
