[Black Space]: Web Series Production

Screen Australia’s Indigenous Department is calling on Indigenous filmmakers, online content creators and vloggers from across Australia to produce online series.

The creation of online content is fast becoming the future of screen storytelling and in the same vain as successful web series, Bondi Hipsters, Broad City, Black As and The Katering Show, we are on the hunt for dynamic proposals for online series with refreshing voices, daring stories, courageous characters or even a couple of oddballs!

Screen Australia’s Indigenous Department will fund two Black Space submissions (three to five standalone episodes, each around four minutes in duration). The initiative is designed to bring Indigenous stories, authored and crafted by Indigenous people to online audiences.

We are looking for Indigenous talent, with big ideas at a production ready stage. As part of the Black Space initiative the successful teams will attend a two day workshop focussed on marketing online content. Each series will be made entirely for online delivery in conjunction with YouTube and Facebook.

The production ready series can be comedy, drama, mockumentary, factual and/or any other relevant genre.

All applicants should be able to commit to production by June 2017, for delivery and launch by October 2017.
