The final season of ABC political drama 'Total Control' will air from Sunday, bringing an end to five-year journey for production company Blackfella Films. IF speaks with producers Darren Dale and Erin Bretherton, and director Jub Clerc.
Made Up Stories producer Bruna Papandrea, Binge executive director Alison Hurbert-Burns, and First Nations multi-hyphenates Leah Purcell, Kodie Bedford, and Jub Clerc have been added to the SXSW Sydney line-up as the event draws closer.
Screenwest’s West Coast Visions funding, which backs debut feature directors from WA, has proven to be one of the country’s most effective talent escalators. From this year onward, Screen Australia will commit an extra $500,000 to the initiative annually. IF talks to recent recipients, the teams behind 'He Ain't Heavy', now in post, and 'Birthright', now fully financed and set to enter production later this year.
The launch project for Tasmanian Aboriginal screen production company kutikina Productions and a new production from Jub Clerc and Jodie Bell are among the Digital Originals to be selected for further development funding.
