Crew Attachment Program - Art Department Attachment opportunity on upcoming TV series 'Scrublands Season 2'

Paid attachment placement opportunities for WA Filmmakers

Applications close Thursday, 18 April 2024 at 5:00pm AWST.

Productions that receive Screenwest production funding over $100,000 are required to budget for and engage a Western Australian attachment/s, in consultation with Screenwest.

The Screenwest Crew Attachment Program aims to provide on the job experience for Western Australian screen practitioners who are interested in furthering their career and skills, by shadowing an experienced industry professional on a professional production shooting in Western Australia.

The program is designed to address skills gaps that exist (or emerge over time) and are identified as being of the highest priority within Western Australia’s professional below-the-line crew base.

Once the attachment opportunities have been mutually agreed upon by Producer and Screenwest there will be a public call out for applications through Screenwest’s newsletter and social media channels.

Professional Development - Placements

Applications open all year.

This fund seeks to support the professional development of Above-The-Line (ATL) key creatives, Below-The-Line (BTL) crew and digital games developers, in recognition that highly skilled practitioners are vital for the long-term growth of the screen industry in Western Australia.

The fund’s primary focus is assisting practitioners who have been offered an exceptional national or international placement opportunity, who can show evidence of a track record in their field. The placement will enhance their skillset, their professional career and develop the capability and capacity of the WA screen industry more broadly.

Only a small number of exceptional opportunities will be supported each year, with a focus on identified skill gaps areas.
