New funding for Victorian TV, film and games industry

The new Victorian Government package includes paid training on the set of the iconic TV series, Neighbours.

A $5.4 million skills and training package aimed at supporting Victorian digital games, TV, and film professionals in achieving their screen career dreams has been announced by the Victorian Minister for Creative Industries, Steve Dimopoulos.

The funding announcement was made at the Docklands Studios Melbourne, which boasts NantStudios’ state-of-the-art virtual production facility, including two LED volume screens, one of which will be the world’s largest at 12mx88m once completed. The Labor Government contributed $12.5 million to bring this technology to Victoria, replacing outdated ‘green screens’ to enable the filming of the next generation of blockbusters in the state.
