Indigenous Writers Wanted For Yellow Water Development Lab

Screenworks is inviting applications from Indigenous Australians living in regional and remote areas. Interested participants will take part in a development lab in the Northern Territory as part of its third Regional Script Lab X initiative.

Taking place from 27 September to 01 October, Screenworks, in partnership with Darwin-based production company Tamarind Tree Pictures and leading animation house Flying Bark Productions will deliver a 4.5 day Development Lab for Yellow Water Billabong. Yellow Water Billabong is a new children’s animation series set in Kakadu National Park.

The Development Lab will provide invaluable hand-on experience into the writing and development process for early-career Indigenous screenwriters. The opportunity to work alongside experienced Indigenous writers including Producer/Writer Danielle MacLean, as well as Producer Anna Grieve from Tamarind Tree Pictures and Flying Bark’s Creative Director Alexs Stadermann and Head of Animation Alexia Gates-Foale will also be hugely advantageous.

To be considered for the Yellow Water Development Lab, applicants must be able to demonstrate previous experience in screenwriting and be living in regional, rural or remote Australia. Applicants also need to be available to travel to the Northern Territory at the end of September (travel and accommodation expenses will be covered by Screenworks). This is an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander identified opportunity.
