Screentime to open SA office and produce hit TV show RBT here (1 May 2018)May 1 2018
One of Australia’s most successful television production companies, Screentime, will open an office in Adelaide and commence production of hit TV show RBT on Adelaide streets from July.
Screentime, says its decision to open in Adelaide is in response to its growing slate of South Australian television productions that includes high end drama Pine Gap currently filming in Adelaide, the recently completed Wolf Creek and from July, Australia's number one factual show - RBT.
This is the first time Screentime, a Banijay Group company, has opened an office outside Sydney in the 22-year history of the company. Its expansion into South Australia has been made possible by a two-year funding allocation from the Arts South Australia- funded South Australian Film Corporation (SAFC) under the Television Company Partnership Initiative.
Screentime SA will continue the company’s strong collaboration with the SAFC and is looking to attract, develop and produce fiction and non-fiction productions working closely with the independent production community in South Australia.
In addition to crews and services this boost in production will take advantage of the State’s world-class facilities including Adelaide Studios’ state-of-the-art sound stages, production offices, post-production facilities and stunning locations across city and State.
