Essential Media Queensland launches

Essential Media Queensland launches with scripted content drive and internship program

At the official launch of Essential Media Queensland in Brisbane last night, the independent production company behind Rake, Saving Mr Banks, Jack Irish and animated pre-school series Bubble Bath Bay unveiled its plans for a scripted content drive with an internship and mentorship program for Queensland screen practitioners.

Spearheading Essential Media Queensland’s strategic development of scripted content from the Brisbane office, recently appointed scripted development producer Roger Monk outlined an intensive four-week internship program for one emerging Queensland producer and one emerging Queensland director. The successful applicants will be offered the opportunity to work across Essential Media’s scripted, factual and kids departments between the Brisbane and Sydney offices.

The Essential Media Queensland launch also hosted a Q&A session with multi award-winning screenwriter Andrew Knight (Rake, The Water Diviner, Jack Irish).
