$7,500 funding toward your Feature Film and Television Series [script] Development course at Open Channel, Melbourne. Develop your screen project to make it more market ready!

“Usually, you get one shot at a project, and when you do, it needs to be ready. Open Channel’s course will help you get there.” Marc Gracie [Director/Producer; The Craic, Take Away, The Tumbler, The Adventures of Lano and Woodley]

The Feature Film and Television Series [script] Development course at Open Channel is the first sustained accredited program in Australia to focus on the intricacies of script and project development and teaches participants critical skills for developing projects for big and small screens. With leading local and international trainers and mentors, participants will workshop their projects, develop two script drafts and forge valuable industry networks. Projects are interrogated creatively, technically and financially in their evolution from script to screen and always with the audience in mind. The course leads to a nationally-recognised Advanced Diploma of Screen and Media [Government subsided places program].

Subsidy for the course [valued at $7,236 per student] is available through the NWDF [National Workforce Development Fund] for eligible applicants with their own production company [ABN] or working together with a Production Company on development of the script. Successful applicants will need to be willing to relocate at own expense to Melbourne from March until December [although we have two holiday breaks during the course]. The course commences on 11th March, and runs until 29th November 2013, two days per week [face-to-face] plus flexibile script mentoring and online learning. Austudy eligible.

Second round applications will close early March 2013.
