How to Create a Crew & Services Profile
How to create a profile in Screenwest's Crew & Services directory for Western Australian screen industry practitioners.
The Crew & Services Directory is a free, publicly searchable database that allows Western Australian resident companies and individuals working in the screen industry to create a profile, highlight their skills and showcase their work.
Listing categories include everything from sound recordists, game design, art directors and runners to on-set caterers, equipment rental companies and first aid officers.
Why Do I Need A Profile?
The Screenwest website is a central resource for local, interstate and international productions who are actively looking to film in Western Australia.
It is the first place we direct enquiries when productions are looking for locations, resources and crew. Since January 2020, the Crew & Services pages of the Screenwest website have been viewed more than 13,000 times.
