AWG is excited to announce that Talent Camp is now open for submissions.
Talent Camp is a national workshop program designed to provide skills development opportunities for emerging storytellers and screen content creatives from diverse backgrounds across the country.
The last edition of Talent Camp was incredibly successful. Here is a clip of two Victorian participants talking about their Talent Camp experience (courtesy of Film Victoria): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eTWSj3qG7cI
AWG is a key project partner of Talent Camp 2019, through the Scripted Ink program. Scripted Ink incubates and accelerates quality Australian writers and their screenplays through direct development funding; showcasing them to production companies, broadcasters and investors and assisting in brokering commercially and creatively successful partnerships.
The 2019 Talent Camp focuses on episodic narrative, both short and long form, with pathways for emerging talent to develop their own web series, find employment in television series and further their education and experience in screen.
We are seeking applications from creatives from under-represented communities with reference to cultural background, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, geographic and/ or socio-economic circumstance. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander creatives are strongly encouraged to apply.
The week long workshops are free, and regional participants will receive financial support for travel and accommodation. Here is a link to the AFTRS page with submission information: https://www.aftrs.edu.au/courses/initiatives/talent-camp/
Applications close May 31.
