Warner Bros. Pictures, The Black List and Veerhuis Pictures announced the launch of the inaugural Australian Script Writing Opportunity, whereby aspiring Australian screenwriters may be considered for a feature film writing deal.
Submissions are open now. The Black List recommends—but does not require—that writers obtain at least one script evaluation as the data from those evaluations informs the process by which the short list of writers is determined for this Australian Script Writing Opportunity. The evaluations deadline is August 13 and the final deadline is September 13
“There is a bit of a gap. People are opening up to the idea of telling diverse stories but there needs to be quite a lot of work in letting people who are from those communities tell their own stories.”
Marcus Graham and Shari Sebbens will be among the ensemble cast of Matchbox Pictures and For Pete’s Sake Productions 30-episode serial drama 'The Heights', which started production today in Perth for the ABC.
