Wide Angle Tasmania Calls For Entries For Raw Nerve 2011

Now in its fourth year, Wide Angle Tasmania has attracted financial assistance from Screen Australia to allow up to four talented emerging Tasmanian filmmakers to create their first short film through the Raw Nerve Initiative.

Wide Angle Tasmania work closely with each successful applicant to take their idea from paper through each stage of production, to a finished film ready for release.  Nationally, 20 filmmakers will be selected to participate in Raw Nerve 2011, supported by Screen Australia and each state’s Screen Development Agency.  This initiative currently provides the only short film funding available in Tasmania for emerging filmmakers.

In addition to access to production and post-production equipment, each filmmaker will receive a cash budget of a minimum $3 000, a Supervising Producer, services of a Script Editor, insurances, a colour grade, a sound mix, enrolment in Wide Angle Tasmania courses and a launch of their film.  We are calling for submissions for short-form animation, documentary or live-action drama.

“Raw Nerve has proven to be a highly successful scheme, with Tasmanian Raw Nerve films being selected to screen at prestigious national festivals and internationally in Portugal, New Zealand and America.” said Abi Binning, General Manager of Wide Angle Tasmania. “Last year’s Raw Nerver Rebecca Thomson’s film Slashed has already been shortlisted as a finalist in the Sydney Mardi Gras Film Festival “My Queer Career” and at the “Melbourne International Queer Film Festival”.

Targeted at the development of high quality short films on a micro budget, Raw Nerve provides new film talent across Australia with a unique arena to showcase their filmmaking skills and story telling abilities. The development of these new screen works is made possible through each of the state screen resource centres, which form the national network Screen Development Australia.

Wide Angle Tasmania operates as a one-stop shop for promising new filmmakers through the Raw Nerve scheme by providing access to equipment, mentoring, and training. Wide Angle Tasmania is seeking film makers with drive, ambition and commitment to participate in this unique and special scheme.
