  • Free access to the studio/cinema, meeting room, common areas and WAT Film Kit (negotiated at application)

Resident Testimonials

Ninna Millikan and Takani Clark

 

"TAS CASTING are so incredibly thankful for the support of Wide Angle Tasmania and the Washington Residency for giving us a productive and positive office space to establish our business. As part of the Washington Residency we received invaluable guidance in regard to our industry and direct contact with film makers and industry professionals. The space was positive, quiet and productive with all the resources we needed to get our business functioning professionally. We were also lucky enough to be enrolled in the End Game initiative which greatly supported us in achieving our goals over the 3 months."
Lisa and Aeshlie, TAS CASTING

"I had access to an office, some equipment and was able to use the hall and mini cinema for the events I had planned. A benefit of this residency was that it allowed me the luxury of failure and to make mistakes. This in turn has led to reflection on how to modify the idea do it in a better and more practical way.  In the meantime, by doing something rather than talking about it, I’ve engaged a number of key stakeholders... and also met some great collaborators who have experience in streaming and have provided some valuable advice on how to do it differently going forward."
