ICS wrapped shooting ‘The Gunada Band’ in Broome recently. This story follows the story of the Broome-based band in the late 1980’s. Before world music became popular, the unique cultural mix of musicians broke new ground and grew into an extraordinary mix of races and culture. Indigenous musicians Wayne Barker and Arnhem Hunter were joined by Bob Wright from England, Guy Ghouse and Ben Raja from Malaysia, and Wolfgang Reusse from Germany.
Over 500 filmmakers, celebrities, media and screen industry representatives turned out to celebrate the very best in Western Australian screen production at the 27th Annual WA Screen Awards at the Heath Ledger Theatre in Perth last night, Monday 29 June 2015, hosted by comedian Joel Creasey.
FTI announced the successful 2015 nominees for the 27th annual WA Screen Awards (WASAs) at an event held on Monday 8 June 2015 at Lot 20 Bar in the Perth Cultural Centre.
The WA Screen Awards (WASAs) is the premier celebration of West Australian screen culture, celebrating excellence and achievements in feature film, short film, web series, music videos, television production, documentary, games and interactive productions.
FTI is proud to announce that nominations are now open for the “ScreenWest Outstanding Contribution to the Industry” Award to be presented at the 27th WA Screen Awards (WASA) on June 29 at the State Theatre Centre of Western Australia.
The recipient of this award will be a West Australian who has enhanced the vibrancy of the screen sector through bringing acclaim and/or profile to the sector via their own remarkable career and achievements, or by working behind the scenes to the benefit of other screen practitioners.
It is with a sense of sadness that FTI announces that, on Friday October 31st, we had to let four of our staff go.
The former staff affected are Jos Gibson – Business Manager; Michael Ellis – Marketing Manager; Lynda Doulas – Production Support Manager; and Matt de Byl – Customised Training Program Manager. Between them, they logged over 20 years of experience at FTI and all made significant contributions to FTI and the broader screen sector in their time with us. We wish them well in their future endeavours.
FTI is a member of the Screen Network and gratefully acknowledges the financial assistance of Screen Australia, ScreenWest & Lotterywest. FTI is also pleased to receive the support of organisational partner; Coopers Brewery.
