Season 2 of YA series The Wilds, featuring Rachel Griffiths, has begun filming on the Gold Coast for Amazon Prime this week.
Cast and crew will utilise the Village Roadshow Studios, with location filming in Gold Coast Hinterland locations and beaches.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said, “This is boom time for Queensland’s screen industry and it means jobs for Queenslanders, and millions of dollars for our economy.
“The amazing response of Queenslanders to the global pandemic ensures our State is safe, open for business and good to go, and the international and local screen production industry recognises this.
“Since the start of 2020, we have secured 39 productions for the sunshine State, including local Queensland-made and international productions attracted here through the Production Attraction Strategy.
“These productions have injected an estimated $437 million into the local economy and created approximately 5,500 jobs for Queenslanders.”
Screen Queensland CEO Kylie Munnich said, “Queensland’s talented and experienced producers and writers are creating original, compelling content for Australian and international audiences.
“Supporting script development and local production through Screen Queensland’s Ideas and Finance Investment programs enables homegrown creatives to deliver productions with entertainment and cultural value, and real economic benefits for the State.”
