For NSW producers, Screen NSW supports productions that have more than 50% of the total production costs expended in NSW.
For an interstate producer, more than 80% of the total budget must be expended in NSW.
Where a producer intends to conduct 100% of the project's post production in NSW (from picture edit to delivery), or where the below-the-line post production spend in NSW is AUD$3 million or more, the 50% rule will be relaxed for both NSW and interstate producers.
