applications open: From amateur to artist

Skybound Productions is currently accepting applications from artists and film crew members to work on our upcoming documentary web series "From Amateur to Artist".

"From Amateur to Artist" is a documentary web series about the lives and work of young female artists in the Canberra community. The series aims to feature a diverse range of artists, both in the sense of artistic styles and backgrounds. It will consist of five 4-6 minute episodes each featuring a different artist. Each episode will contain three separately filmed segments: an interview, an average day in their studio/main place of work and a performance/exhibition/concert out in the Canberra community wherever they share their art. 

These are all volunteer positions so we understand that it may not be suitable for everyone. The successful candidates will each receive a stipend of $100 as thanks for their work.

We are seeking five featured artists to appear in the series. These positions are based in Canberra. Only female-identifying candidates will be accepted. Applicants from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds, culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and those with disabilities are encouraged to apply.

More information about these positions is available in the application form, but we are looking for the following general attributes:
