SDA launches Raw Nerve Short Film Initiative

19 June 2003

Screen Development Australia (SDA) the national network of screen resource organisations, in conjunction with the Australian Film Commission (AFC) is pleased to announce the launch of the Raw Nerve Short Film Initiative 2003.

Raw Nerve provides emerging filmmakers with the opportunity to produce quality short films on a minimal budget. The Raw Nerve scheme was created to address the AFC and SDA shared objective of showcasing the new talent emerging through the screen resource organisations in each state. The films will tour throughout Australia at the end of the year.

Last year 29 short films were produced and over 700 cast and crew gained valuable production experience enabling them to upgrade their skills and move ahead in the industry.

As well as being a springboard for upcoming writer/directors and technicians, a number of the films went on to screen at various national festivals and win awards. The 2002 showreel is available on request together with bio information on the directors.

The successful filmmakers in 2003 will be given a small cash budget for their shoot plus two days equipment hire and two days post-production facilities. The AFC is providing funding of $150,000 and a further $75,200 is being contributed by SDA organisations.

For more information and application guidelines please contact the screen resource organisation in your state.
