Thinking about a career in film or television? The New Screen Makers Conference is a must for networking and insight from established industry producers.
Mercury Cinema and The Media Resource Centre will be hosting the 2016 edition of The New Screen Makers Conference — the second in the event's history.
The conference, taking place over two days (July 15, 16) will be focusing this year on comedy, drama, and impact documentaries.
Guests include Rick Kalowski (Head of ABC Comedy), Paul Walton (Princess Pictures), Daley Pearson (Ludo Studios), Liz Doran (writer, Please Like Me), Richard Harris (Screen Australia), Chloe Rickard (Jungle), Dario Russo and David Ashby- (Dinosaur, Danger 5), Danny Philippou (RackaRacka), and more.
An organiser for the event said to University of South Australia's Media Arts Lecturer, Wilson Main, that "speakers are very willing to meet young people who are starting their career,"
"One of our recent ex-students has already sold a comedy series to one of these guests," Dr. Main said.
The event's speakers will be covering everything from breaking into the industry, what does and doesn't work in specific genres, as well as skills needed for writing, marketing, funding and distribution.
The event, sponsored by Screen Australia and South Australian Film Corporation, aims to help attendees strengthen existing ties between their work and the film industry, and get as much of their questions answered as possible.
"It's your first important step in a career that will be dependant on good networking." says Dr. Main.
Tickets are on sale now via Mercury Cinema.
