Building on issues raised in Opportunities for Growth, this paper explores the proposal for a Registered Low Budget Scheme. 

Screen Producers Australia proposes the introduction of a registered low budget scheme. This proposal is an advanced discussion paper and any scheme will obviously require the agreement of the stakeholders concerned.

The primary aim of the scheme is to create work that is additional to the status quo. It is designed to increase production levels and the number of opportunities for film makers and performers. The scheme is not designed to erode existing pay and conditions across the industry but ultimately designed to increase the overall health of the sector.
