The EPP will provide emerging producers with a unique opportunity to gain experience with NSW screen production companies, in addition to working with Screen NSW Sector Investment team. EPP is a fast-track career opportunity by matching highly experienced screen industry practitioners with undiscovered emerging producing talent.
In this round, two candidates will be selected for placement opportunities. One placement will be a dedicated spot for an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander emerging producer. The other placement will prioritise emerging producers from underrepresented groups including women, people from CaLD backgrounds, people with disability, LGBTQI people and people from Western Sydney.
The two candidates will be selected and paid to undertake a six-month customised program. They will spend the majority of the time with production companies, with additional time at Screen NSW and attending key industry events.
Applications for the Emerging Producers Placement Program open on Tuesday 9 October 2019 at 12:00pm and close on Friday 8 November 2019 at midnight.
