Screen Tasmania

Tasmanian crew traineeships

Traineeships are aimed at those who are on the verge of being professional crew members; usually those with qualifications and some on-set experience.

Funding is available for production companies to pay for a professional crew member to act as a trainer across a proportion of the pre-production and production periods. The trainer then oversees an emerging Tasmanian crew member during their traineeship role.

The successful trainee would be paid and credited as a professional crew member in the role.

  • The trainee will be paid as normal by the host company or production company at industry rates.
  • The trainer will be paid by the host company or production company with funding provided by Screen Tasmania.
  • Successful trainees will be required to fill out a Traineeship Report on completion of the production. Failure to lodge that Report will mean the trainee will be ineligible for any future Screen Tasmania funding until the Report is lodged.
  • Production companies will need to contact Screen Tasmania to discuss their proposals and the application process.
