Having already offered a Victorian writer the chance to work alongside the writing team of NCIS, Film Victoria is now offering an opportunity on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.
The International Fellowship is a 12 week opportunity for a writer to shadow key CSI writing staff. The lucky recipient will be granted confidential access to breaking stories in the CSI writer’s room, reading outlines/drafts and then following a writer through the production and post-production process.
The stint is from January to March, 2009 in Los Angeles, with up to $25,000 funding available. Following the Fellowship the writer is expected to pool their knowledge and experience back into the Victorian industry.
Be warned, it’s a competitive field vying for this opportunity.
David Hannam is the recipient of the first International Fellowship. He will shadow ex-pat Victorian writer Shane Brennan on NCIS. Hannam has more than 14 years industry experience on Neighbours, All Saints and Stingers as a writer, script editor and story producer.
Victorians can apply for the CSI opportunity until October 27 at Film Victoria.
