We're giving one lucky Equity member in their final year (2018) of drama school will have the opportunity spend a week working alongside the cast and crew of Home and Away.
The one week internship will provide a unique opportunity to go behind-the-scenes of this hugely successful Australian television production and spend time with key cast members, as well as the casting, wardrobe, scheduling, script, art, make-up and editing departments.
Home and Away producer Lucy Addario says: “Home and Away is thrilled to partner with the Equity Foundation to support the careers of young Australian talent. We look forward to offering rare insights and experiences across the entire production process.”
This is a paid internship thanks to support of Media Super. CEO Graeme Russell says: “As the industry’s own fund, Media Super enthusiastically supports and promotes our talented young actors across Australia. The Media Super Internship on the set of Home and Away provides the opportunity for one of our potential future stars to hone their craft on-the-job.”
The internship will be offered to a full-time drama student in their last year of formal study at an accredited drama school, nationwide.
The successful applicant will be paid at the appropriate award rate. Accommodation and return flights to Sydney will be covered, if necessary, together with a small stipend each day.
The winner would be expected to take up the internship prior to finishing their studies at a mutually agreed upon time with Seven Network.
The intern will be required to complete a written article for The Equity Magazine and short video about their experience. Read about WAAPA graduate Natasha Vickery's experience during our 2018 internship with Gristmill Productions. Full story.
