Seeking new talent, new perspectives and new voices for AFTRS Talent Camp 2019
Nikki Tran and Grace Feng talk Talent Camp
"Without Talent Camp, I just can't really imagine how I would have made a start on my project."
If you're an emerging screen practitioner and not quite sure how to break into the industry, the Australian Film Television & Radio School (AFTRS) Talent Camp might be just the thing for you.
Open to emerging storytellers and screen content creatives from backgrounds currently under-represented in the screen sector, the week-long workshop – followed by mentoring and other industry-based experiences – will give you the skills, knowledge and networks to support you into your content-making career.
With the national program launched today, Film Victoria and AFTRS are now seeking applications for the Victorian edition. And rather than loads of experience, we're looking for people with a passion for storytelling and something to say.
But who best to convince you than participants themselves? Here's Nikki Tran and Grace Feng (quoted above and pictured) sharing their experience – which ultimately led to working on a web series together.
Applications are open now until 31 May, with the Victorian workshops take place from 21 to 25 October.
Find out more about the program and workshop details, including how to apply, on the AFTRS website.
Talent Camp is a multi-partner screen industry initiative made possible with the support of leading community cultural organisations: AFTRS, Screen Australia, Screen Queensland, Create NSW, Screen ACT, Film Victoria, Screen Tas, South Australian Film Corp, ScreenWest and Screen Territory.
