In August 2021, Screenworks, Netflix, and the NSW Government announced an exciting new initiative that will provide free training for up-and-coming creatives looking to make their start in the screen industry.
Delivered by Screenworks, backed by an investment of $500,000 from Netflix, and supported by the NSW Government and Screen Queensland, the Program will also provide placements and work experience on real productions with the goal of creating new career pathways in the field for regional people.
The initiative started as a pilot in 2022 in Northern New South Wales, and in 2023 it has now extended to include Far North and North Queensland, with the aim to scale the program across regional Australia in the future. The program will provide career pathways in the screen industry for regional people, in addition to directly addressing crewing skill gaps that have been identified in the industry. Diversity and inclusion will be a key focus area for this program.
The Regional Crew Development Program will directly address crewing skills gaps that have been identified in the region including for roles such as camera and light department, production accountants and location managers.
