Create NSW, BBC Studios Australia and AIDC are teaming up to offer a talented mid-career documentary producer/director a unique opportunity to work alongside some of the best documentary makers in the world.
The Unscripted International Producer Placement (UIPP) initiative will provide $50,000 to support a NSW-based documentary maker as they work alongside the BBC Studios documentary team in the UK for up to six months.
This award-winning team produces internationally-renowned documentaries, including those from Louis Theroux, Blue Planet II, Life & Death Row, Stacey Dooley Investigates and StargazingLive. The successful applicant will be placed with a team that suits their experience and area of interest.
In addition, the six shortlisted applicants will receive travel, accommodation and discounted entry to the Melbourne-based AIDC conference from 3-6 March next year, where the final recipient will be announced on the closing night.
Applicants must be a mid-career producer and/or director with at least two documentary broadcast credits (television broadcast or theatrical release) and must submit at least one in-development documentary project with international appeal, to be further developed over the course of the placement.
Applications for the Unscripted International Producer Placement are now closed.
