The Professional Attachment Program, funded by Film Victoria and managed by Open Channel, is a response to the need to provide skills development opportunities for early career Victorian screen industry practitioners. The program provides a significant opportunity for Victorian practitioners to gain experience within some of Victoria’s established film and television production companies and address skills gaps in the local industry.
Raw Nerve is a Screen Network (SN) national short film production initiative supported by Screen Australia. Open Channel offers a select number of emerging Victorian filmmakers the opportunity to make a high quality, low budget short film with support from leading industry experts. In recent years Open Channel has developed Raw Nerve into a highly prized pathway for emerging filmmakers by providing an experienced Producer in the role of Supervising Producer, and through significant in‐kind support from Digital Pictures, Chameleon Casting, Music & Effects and Cinema Nova.
