Screen NSW announces new guidelines and names

31 August, 2011 by IF

Press release from Screen NSW

The Creative Enterprise and Development (CRED) team of Screen NSW is changing its title to Development and Production (DAP). The new title better reflects the work of the team across development and production investment in NSW-based screen projects.


Some of the roles previously known as Development Executives will also change title as, while some of the DAP executives work solely in development, others work solely in production or across production and development.

• Megan Simpson Huberman will be the Director, Development and Production.
• Nerida Moore will become the Senior Development and Production Executive.
• Samantha Jennings will become a Development and Production Executive.
• Sally Regan, who has just joined the team, will be a Production Executive.
• Katherine Slattery and Stefan Moore will remain Development Executives.

The title change also coincides with the release of Screen NSW’s updated Development Guidelines and application forms.

Megan Simpson Huberman said that the updated Development Guidelines and application forms were revised in consultation with industry guilds and organisations.

“We’ve worked to provide clearer tips on what makes a strong development application, including some new core application materials. And in the Early Stage Development guidelines, we’re providing more information on what Screen NSW is looking for in a short document. And remember, what’s really attractive about Screen NSW development funding is that once your project is financed, our development funds may be able to be reinvested in your project or your company.”

To accompany the release of the updated guidelines, Screen NSW is releasing video excerpts from the recent one day seminar it hosted with US producer Meg Le Fauve on The Essentials Of Short Documents. The vodcasts provide valuable tips for creating short documents that will do justice to your work.

The new guidelines and application forms are available on the Screen NSW website.
