Screen Access Launch

Making a film can be tough - but you're wasting your time if you don't have agreements in place with your cast, crew and location owners.  With the support of a 26TEN grant, Wide Angle Tasmania has created a suite of contracts for use on your low and no-budget film projects:

  • Cast Agreement - volunteer
  • Cast Agreement - contractor
  • Crew Agreement - volunteer
  • Crew Agreement - contractor
  • Location Agreement

Wide Angle Tasmania advocates for policy that supports our screen sector, and in the absence of effective state legislation, WAT has created a voluntary code of conduct for Working with Children in the Screen Industry.  

'Screen Access' is a collection of production documents for independent filmmakers.  In addition to the template agreements you'll find letters, medical information sheets, summary working conditions and tip sheets to provide to new cast or crew members.

Wide Angle is committed to increasing the diversity of screen practitioners, and an important feature of 'Screen Access' is that the documents have been designed to be easily read and understood by filmmakers - and those you negotiate with.  Media lawyer Shaun Miller has been instrumental in reviewing the agreements to provide filmmakers with peace of mind.

WAT members are invited to the launch of 'Screen Access' where Executive Director Abi Binning will demonstrate how filmmakers can most effectively use the documents for their projects.  The session will cover:

  • assignment of rights
  • working with volunteer and contractors
  • basic insurances
  • how to use the agreements
  • why use a code of conduct when working with children



This project was supported by a 26TEN grant
