Developing a collaborative national postgraduate research program for screen producers potentially has many educational, cultural and commercial benefits. To achieve this potential a number of major structural, funding and practice-based research problems need to be addressed. This Project will initiate sector-wide consultations regarding conditions required for a viable postgraduate research development while liaising with relevant state and federal organizations. The Project will build upon the Western Australian experience with intercampus collaboration to map out a synergistic network of national screen production research hubs, regional nodes and local knowledge trails. This framework will be used to form an interuniversity research centre to service postgraduate researchers with supervisors and to actively seek production grants. The organizational task will be undertaken in partnership with 30 existing national and international collaborators and 22 institutions. The Project outcome is expected to lead to a more directed, sustainable and mix-funded national postgraduate development in screen production, one with local as well as global connections.
