Foreign money fuels Aussie film

4 August 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

SYDNEY -- Figures to be released today as part of the Australian Film Commission's annual survey of drama production in the country paint a worrying picture of the local film and television landscape, despite a 15% increase in expenditure on all drama production in the financial year July 1, 2003-June 30, 2004, as that growth mainly reflects foreign films shooting in Australia during that period. The increase, from AUS$513 million to AUS$588 million ($414.9 million), almost entirely reflects growth in the area of foreign features shooting principally in Australia, including the Sydney-based Kennedy-Miller/Warner Bros. Pictures $85 million animated Australian feature Happy Feet. Without that, the value of local feature film production would have been similar to 2002-03's eight-year low of AUS$49 million, which works out to an average budget of AUS$3.5 million ($2.5 million) per film, the AFC said. »
