Netflix has partnered with Screenworks and the NSW government to provide free skills training for entry into screen industry careers to address a national shortage of film crews.
The television and movie streaming giant will invest $500,000 in the three-year pilot program, which will be delivered by Screenworks and supported by the state government.
The program, to be announced on Monday, will include 12-month fully paid traineeships in a range of areas including camera work, lighting and production. Work experience on productions being filmed in regional areas, including the Byron Studios in Alstonville in northern NSW, and Pacific Bay Studios in Coffs Harbour, will be part of the traineeships.
