Low Budget Film Making In The UK – The Making of Delicious

Delicious Screening

A Unique Opportunity To Hear About The UK Experience

In Australia, Screen Producers Australia is developing a scheme for low budget features, to be considered by Australia’s unions and guilds. A low budget scheme has been in place in the UK for over 5 years.

You are invited to a preview screening of one of the successful films made under the UK scheme - the bittersweet romance Delicious, followed by a Q&A with the writer, director and co-producer Tammy Riley-Smith, and the producer and composer Michael Price, moderated by Owen Johnston (Manager, Commercial and Industrial Affairs, Screen Producers Australia).

On February 9th, iTunes is releasing Delicious in Australia. The film, starring Louise Brealey, whose credits include BBC series Sherlock, has received critical acclaim, screened at four international film festivals, secured theatrical releases in Asia and an international VOD release.

Delicious was made for £150,000 (AU$280,00) under the agreement for low budget features between the UK producers association PACT and the UK actors’ union, Equity. Since July 2009, 139 low budget films of £3 million (AU$5.5 Million) or less have been registered under the scheme, many of which have provided vital stepping-stones for the next generation of British talent.

Screen Producers Australia presents a unique opportunity to hear first hand from Tammy Riley-Smith and Michael Price about how the scheme works in the UK.
