Small Screen: Scripted Development Investment Fund

Small Screen is a development initiative that offers new, emerging and experienced Western Australian storytellers the opportunity to get their scripted series ready for market.

The initiative is designed as a precursor to Screenwest’s Matched Development fund and is part of Screenwest’s overall strategic objective to increase the number of dramas and comedy series commissioned from Western Australia for the small screen (television, streaming service or web content).

The initiative has two stages/funding streams:

  • Stage One: Concept Development
  • Stage Two: Series Development
