Tonight on ABC ARTS catch Andrew Bovell and Nakkiah Lui on 'Meet the Mavericks'.
RE the Shane Bennan interview on TV Club on ABC RN, we can add TWO things, in alignment with what he said RE 'problems' with getting Oz TV on its feet (as per net-profits): TALKING HEADS as per the desired formats/projects have provably FAILED in Australia, amitted by Cassie herself) so that's a MONEYPIT pseudo-scripting-paradigm, not a structure that needs o be adhered-to (thus, 'good BYE 'Glitch', as Glitch is merely 'Neighbors' dolled-up-Mutton-as-Lamb style, and must be avoided... ... and Cassie loves Stranger Things, a show which has been SUCCESSFULL on Netflix due to the fact it provides SINCERE emotional content while providing all 'pay-offs' for 'set-ups' (a phrase Mr. Brennan knows all too well). UNLIKE Glitch. Unlike '100 Bloodily Plagiarizing Motel Hell Acres' *. No COGNIZANT audience listener to this ABC RN Interview failed to grasp that. Nor did they fail to remember the FAILURES in Oz screenwriting to 'pay-off' the 'set-ups'. While being aware of the fact that if they boycott i-View or purchasing dvds at the [dwindling] ABC Shops, a point will be made, no different to folks in the USA using boycott to the same effect. Going back to the public-bus-transit Phil Adams himself loves to invoke (albeit unfairly). As ScriptInk is presented as an ongoing program, if ABC RN has Shane address these things in a subsequent Cassie-interview, no problem. If not, it's 'meet the new boss, same as the old boss', pun intended as per licensed titles-sequences using music from The Who. *nobody better complain about THAT, for reasons Mr. Brennan KNOWS, as per the Law-suit of Hrlan Ellison v. James Cameron. Which Cameron, despite being 'Mr. Titanic/Mr, Avatar', LOST. Which set a legal precedent which applies to EVERY AUSSIE who thinks they can get away with ripping off yank stuff (or European stuff) merely because, as Shane said on ABC RN, the funding-bodies don't have writers in the 'green lighting' process, and also the producers screwing the writers he admitted to/elaborated upon assume the can't be held to account-for. Which is pathetic considering the definitions of Screen-Australia funding applications/Agreements defining 'original material/scripts', and before that, the SAME original material requiremants of the AFC/FFC before they merged ito 'ScreenAustralia'. (as in not a blatant rip-off, including rip-offs of 1980's American cult films. as provable by the LEGAL PRECEDENT SET by Cameron LOSING to Ellison, Shane will be VERY aware of this, including 'permutations'.) So let's have Cassie and Shane be honest about RIP OFFS that are LEGALLY ACTIONABLE, as well as age-ism, before we tout 'helping new screen-writers' too much, at tax-payer expense.

Scripted Inc sounds like an interesting initiative, with screenwriter Shane Brennan pumping $1million into the Australian Writers' Guild to set up a not-for-profit venture to recognise and reward the central role of the writer in screen production. The unprecedented generosity demonstrates Brennan’s belief in the quality and potential of Australian screenwriters and screenwriting, and will act as a catalyst to trigger matched funding, forge partnerships and dramatically increase the amount of money available for writer and script-focussed development. https://awg.com.au/view/shane-brennan-awg-announce-scripted-inc/
