CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR: Arts & culture across the spectrum – photography, design, film and video, literature, music, visual arts, performance, dance, architecture, games, events and cross art-form or hybrid practices. Our slate of productions includes studio-based shows, documentary series and one-offs, interview and review shows, presenter-led series, hybrid docu-dramas and events. Our Arts commissions must include Australian content and be produced by a team that incorporates Australian citizens in at least some of the key creative roles. We can provide development support. We can also do post-production deals for films that are already shot, but not edited.
NUMBER OF SLOTS/HOURS: 2-3 part series and single episode TV hours for a Tuesday 8.30 pm prime time audience. Blue-chip feature documentaries for Sunday 8.30pm broad audience | co-viewing.
