Briefing: Production

A pallid tv industry and slumping economy are squeezing an already contracted Oz production industry, particularly for expensive longform tv drama.

The Australian Film Finance Corp. underpins the majority of production; not surprisingly, its funds are going more toward features at the moment because of the difficulty associated with stitching together tv projects. Feature production is steady, but at a far reduced – many would say more realistic – level than that of the tax-driven ’80s.
