Celebrating the Open Channel-managed Film Victoria Professional Attachment Program
Open Channel is very proud to have managed Professional Attachment Program on behalf of Film Victoria since 2015. As this arrangement draws to a close, Open Channel reflects on and celebrates the program’s success during this time and the new opportunities the program has created for our attachees.
Throughout this period, over 30 early career practitioners had the opportunity to extend their experience through employment as paid crew members on major professional productions.
Our attachees benefited from on-the-job instruction from accomplished professionals engaged by high-calibre production companies including: Matchbox Pictures, FremantleMedia, Arenamedia, Playmaker Media, Princess Pictures, Shine Productions and December Media.
Many of our attachees have continued working either with their hosts, or other production companies, after their attachments concluded – and we expect this list to grow as new opportunities arise for our participants.
As of 1 July 2017, the Professional Attachment Program will return to Film Victoria for in-house management. Open Channel’s Attachment Manager, Chris Barker, will also move to Film Victoria. While we’re sad to see Chris go, we are delighted for him and are certain that his dedication to the Program will provide a seamless transition. We wish him and the Program all the best in their new home.
Information about all Attachment opportunities can be accessed via Film Victoria, here: https://film.smartygrants.com.au/attachmentregister.
As always, Open Channel will continue to support emerging screen practitioners, recent graduates and current students. Sign up to our OpenLine newsletter to hear developing news about our upcoming Generation Next Conference and our exciting new GenNext Program.
