The rapid expansion of streaming subscription entertainment and media platforms has driven strong demand for professionals in all industries who have the ability to craft stories for the screen.
Closer to home, the film industry is booming. Offering diverse location opportunities, an accessible environment, and strategic film attraction initiatives by federal, state, and local governments, Hollywood blockbusters and international film productions are flooding into the Gold Coast. $71 million has been earmarked to be injected into Queensland’s film industry. With these productions come job opportunities and global connection.
Blockbusters lured to the sunshine state include Thor: Ragnarok, Aquaman, Dora and the Lost City of Gold, Godzilla vs. Kong, Love and Monsters, Escape from Spiderhead, Thirteen Lives, Ticket To Paradise and Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis biopic with new blockbusters like Joe Exotic and Ticket to Paradise as well as Netflix’s Jessica Watson biobic set to call Queensland home.
