Two Emerging Producers Gain Placements With Screen NSW and Metro Screen

Two of NSW’s most exciting emerging producers will take the next major step in their cinema careers with each being successful in their application for the Screen NSW supported Emerging Producer Placement (EPP), administered by Metro Screen.

Rosie Lourde and Peter Ireland were chosen from a particularly strong field of 26 aspirants for the program which is designed to identify and support a new generation of emerging producers in NSW and advance their careers in screen.

Rosie Lourde said I'm so appreciative of Screen NSW and Metro Screen for this opportunity. The redesigned EPP is an incredible pathway for emerging producers. I'm excited to work alongside the agency and one of Australia's most exciting production companies as well as Metro Screen, to continue building the skills I need for a fruitful producing career."

Peter Ireland said The EPP is a huge professional boost for me. It means learning from the best in our industry, both on the funding body side and the production side, in a context that I can apply directly to my own work. This experience to me is, literally, a chance to advance my knowledge and my projects, in 6 months, by gaining experience that would take years to develop."

Both candidates will now be individually mentored, with a focus on developing their skills and networks in their chosen field of interest and will also receive guidance on their career development with a film industry careers consultant.

The EPP is an incredible opportunity for an emerging producer to receive high level experience with Australia’s top production companies across film, television, online and transmedia, as well as gaining a unique experience in assessing ideas, writing budget and script reports, and sitting in on development workshops within a live production and development funding environment with Screen NSW.

Screen NSW and Metro Screen congratulate these two up and coming emerging producers.
