MUMBAI: Screen Australia‘s Springboard Short Film Initiative has ensured that three creative teams receive investment for their upcoming projects. The idea behind the Springboard Short Film Course is to offer creative teams the opportunity to make a short film that will be the grounding for a feature film idea.

Screen Australia‘s head of development Martha Coleman said, "This year‘s Springboard workshop has encouraged participants to focus on providing an intense emotional experience by combining a great script with a strong director‘s vision."

While writer-director Nicholas Verso and producer John Malloy will make The Last Time I Saw Richard, writer-director Miranda Nation along with producer Lyn Norfor will make Perception. Lastly, writer-director Sean Kruck will make Snowblind with producer Caroline Barry.

It may be noted that previous recipient writer-director Zak Hilditch made the short film Transmission with producer Liz Kearney that was selected for this year‘s Tribeca Film Festival. The Springboard Short Film Initiative also helped the makers to get finance for their feature These Final Hours.

Another previous recipient was Grant Scicluna whose film The Wilding won at this year‘s Melbourne Queer Film Festival for Best Australian Short and was in competition at this year‘s Berlin Film Festival.

Five teams were selected for the Springboard course with convenor Paul Welsh. The teams will receive up to $150,000 each to make a short film.
