If you are set up to shoot and edit a story we will offer a commission of $7000. We have created a template and a producers pack with information on coverage, edits and technical requirements for delivery. Applications will be accepted from any Australian state or territory. Producers can apply to State agencies/Sponsors for additional funding.
