NSW Assistant Camera workshop will address operator shortages in Australia

A pilot initiative for screen jobs will run in NSW next week, and budding camera operators from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

A new initiative called Screen Trades is being piloted in New South Wales to address shortages in key screen crew jobs, and next weekend they will host an inaugural workshop for budding camera operators.

Thanks to the coming-together of the Arts & Cultural Exchange, Screenrights Cultural Fund, and Screen NSW, an introductory Assistant Camera workshop with Panavision will take place on 14 November for people who are historically under-represented in the industry.
