Rising Stars - Investigating support for early career film, video and digital media practitioners in South Australia

Phil Callaghan

Abstract


The study investigates the adequacy of government-funded support for early career film, video and digital media practitioners in South Australia and explores literature and government policies in the area. A multiple case study approach is then used to examine how a sample of talented and successful creative practitioners, utilise government-funded support to assist in the creation of screen-based work. The research analyses qualitative data obtained from semi-structured interviews and work histories, as well as quantitative data drawn from income level surveys. The investigation considers: the type of government-funded support utilised; the adequacy of this support; any alternative forms of support utilised; and the impact on early career development. The paper concludes that Government-funded support for early career practitioners in South Australia is not adequate to support talented practitioners who want to earn a fulltime living in the industry.
