The Australian Directors Guild, Screen Australia and Playmaker Media today announced Julietta Boscolo as the director’s attachment to Geoff Bennett on the Nine Network's Love Child, now in production.
A VCA graduate, Boscolo started directing several years ago with a number of short films including Sam’s Gold, which won the ADG Best Direction in a Short Film last year and was invited to more than a dozen national and international festivals.
She was one of nine filmmakers worldwide selected for the Binger Filmlab Directors Lab in Amsterdam in 2013.
Julietta said, “I'm absolutely thrilled and honoured to be chosen for this attachment on such a successful production. This is perfect timing and a perfect opportunity to move into directing for television.”
Screen Australia’s Senior Development Executive Nerida Moore said, “Screen Australia recognises the importance of ongoing talent development opportunities, and is proud to support this through the Director’s Attachment Scheme. We are delighted for Julietta to be gaining this exceptional opportunity to learn from some of the best on an award winning television production. It will be an integral experience that informs both her practice and that of future recipients.”
Earlier this year Christopher Stollery was attached to Grant Brown on Playmaker's House Husbands, the first TV attachment under the ADG scheme.
Previous placements include Grant Sputore attached to Kriv Stenders on Kill Me Three Times, Stephen McCallum/Tony Ayres on Cut Snake, Matthew Moore/Robert Connolly on Paper Planes, and Ariel Martin/Neil Armfield on Holding the Man.
The Director’s Attachment Scheme is an incentive program to help emerging directors develop their craft, funded byScreen Australia and managed by the ADG. This year the scheme will provide candidates with attachment opportunities on up to six TV drama series and three feature films.
