Congratulations to Jacklyn Bassanelli, winner of the 2017 Laugh Out Loud Comedy Writing Competition with her script Preconception! Bassanelli wins the chance to pitch her new comedy script to ABC’s Head of Comedy, Rick Kalowski, and will also receive $5000 in funding from Scripted Ink. Described by the industry judging panel as ‘highly sophisticated and well executed’, Preconception follows a late-thirties jobbing actor with a weakness for booze and musicians who decides to look into her own fertility after being cast on screen with a teenage daughter.

What would Australian #TV look like without local content quotas? We want Australian stories told on Australian screens by us, to us, about us. More than 200 leading actors, directors, screenwriters, producers, editors, cinematographers and other screen workers have penned an open letter to federal parliamentarians calling for action to protect the industry. Will you join us? https://makeitaustralian.com/take-action/ #MakeItAustralian
'More than 200 screen industry figures have written an open letter to federal MPs warning that Australian story telling is at risk of being drowned out by overseas content. The latest initiative from the Make It Australian campaign is a direct response to fears the Turnbull government plans to slash the local content quotas for TV drama and children’s television, as advocated by the commercial free-to-air broadcasters.'
Tune in now to hear Tony Ayres discussing the #MakeItAustralian campaign and today's open letter to the government http://www.abc.net.au/radio/sydney/
'More than 250 high-profile film and television figures have signed an open letter pleading with the federal government to strengthen local content rules on the small screen and to increase tax breaks to attract overseas movie producers. "Our voices [are] in danger of being drowned out by a deluge of overseas content," it says. "And if our nation's stories aren't told, they die. And when they die, future generations won't know who we are and what makes us us."'
"Screen Australia CEO Graeme Mason has two blunt messages for feature film producers. One is: Recognise that most independent films, Australian and international, now are earning roughly half as much at Australian cinemas as they did only a few years ago. The other: Keep up-to-date with the rapidly shifting dynamics in the global theatrical market or get left behind."
