Screenworks Regional Attachement Program for Deadlock Cast & Crew
Screenworks is partnering with Every Cloud Productions to create opportunities for film crew and screen practitioners in the Northern Rivers with the announcement that Deadlock will be filming in the region in July this year.
We have devised the Deadlock Attachment Program, which will give up to nine young screen practitioners the opportunity to work alongside experienced practitioners on the production of Deadlock.
To fund the Deadlock Attachment Program and get young local screen practitioners working on the production, Screenworks is seeking philanthropic support from local businesses, organisations and investors. As Screenworks is listed on the Register of Cultural Organisations and is endorsed by the Australian Tax Office as having Item 1 Deductible Gift Recipient status, all donations to this program will be tax deductible.
“We need to raise around $45,000 to be able to deliver all aspects of this exciting new program” explained Screenworks General Manager, Ken Crouch. “This is a new innovative way of funding career opportunities for young people in our region, so we hope that the community will support this new model”.
“Over the coming weeks, we will be speaking to a number of local investors and will also hold a fundraising event. We encourage anyone who is interested in investing in the careers of young people in our region to contact Screenworks to find out how to get involved.”
