SAFC/ABC TV Labs ‘iview originals’ initiative grant recipients announced
The South Australian Film Corporation and ABC TV have funded five South Australian projects through the unique SAFC/ABC TV LABS ‘iview originals’ initiative – with a joint half a million dollar investment.
Each project will showcase the state’s writing, filmmaking and production talent. The projects are all now moving forward with further development in anticipation of production in the next six months, with the plan that each will produce their own series of 6 x 5 minute episodes to premiere exclusively on ABC iview.
The selected projects explore a wide range of topics including an Uber driver’s search for love; an immigrant adjusting to Australian life; and pop stars overcoming their disability barrier. With three comedies and two documentary productions selected, the projects showcase South Australia’s diverse creative abilities.
