Screenwest has recently updated its Crew Attachment scheme, formerly referred to in the industry as Production Investment Attachments, or ‘PIA’ Attachments.

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.

Under this program, all productions that receive Screenwest production funding over $100,000, from May 2018, are required to budget for and engage Western Australian attachment/s in consultation with Screenwest.

Once the attachment opportunities have been mutually agreed upon by the Producer and Screenwest there will be a public call out for applications, via the Screenwest newsletter and Facebook page.

Only practitioners’ applications who meet the eligibility criteria will be forwarded to the production company.

The successful applicant/s will be mutually decided upon by the Producer in consultation with Screenwest Management.

For more information, including details on how to apply, please refer to the Crew Attachment Program page on the Screenwest website.

All program guidelines are to be read in conjunction with the Screenwest Terms of Trade found here.
