Project Development: Market attached funding
Funding is available within the Project Development Guidelines to assist with non-draft related costs. Funding is limited to long-form projects that have financial support from third party marketplace participants (such as a broadcaster, distributor or other government agency). It is not available for short-form series projects.
Support is offered exclusively to applicants who can demonstrate marketplace investment in the development of episode outlines, draft scripts and non-draft expenses related to financing a project. To be eligible, a market participant (distributor, broadcaster or funding agency) must have made a financial commitment to the development.
While market attached funding is available only once, Screen Tasmania reserves the right to allow multiple applications in exceptional circumstances (for example, evidence of significant and ongoing marketplace support).
For market attached funding, applicants may apply for support for development costs including:
- the development of pitch materials related to financing
- marketing consultancies
- market and financing travel
- budget and schedule preparation
- preliminary casting costs
- production of audio-visual material, and
- producer fees (not exceeding $2 000).
There are also Notes and Project History Guidelines to assist you in preparing your application.
