Scripts

About writing in Australia: Scripts for Film, Television and Theatre

The Australian Writers’ Guild has an excellent script assessment service for film, television and theatre scripts. Australians who have a screenplay idea, treatment or first draft that they want to sell should contact their local State Government film funding body (e.g. Film Victoria) regarding assistance provided to new script writers. Staff at these offices often have an idea about what local producers are looking for.

Regarding proposals for television or film producers, it is worthwhile to peruse a copy of the Encore Directory which lists producers and other professionals in the industry with contact details and information about credits. See your local library or Writers’ Centre or purchase Encore yourself (published by Reed Business Information Pty Ltd; email them to subscribe:This email address is being protected from spambots.
