FOX PRODUCTION SERVICES

Fox Production Services provides end-to-end support for international and domestic companies producing film and television in Australia. We have relationships with many of Australia’s top film and television service providers, as well as with industry unions and relevant Australian government departments. Our experienced Production Services team is eager to help in all facets of your production to ensure your project runs flawlessly and efficiently.

For an overseas production company filming in Australia, it is advisable to utilise the services of an Australian-based production services company. The use of such a company will help ease the international company through legal, union, immigration, financial and taxation regulations.

We can tailor our service to suit your specific production requirements – whether you are filming at our studios, or off-the-lot, anywhere in Australia. Our fees are based on the level of service you require, and are determined on a case-by-case basis.

Production Services include:

  • Federal and state government rebate and incentive management including Producer, Location and PDV Offsets and State/Territory Production Attraction Incentives and general government liaison.
  • Co-production facilitation and support.
  • Production management including budgeting and scheduling.
  • Location scouting, packaging and procuring of permits.
  • Assistance with casting and crewing including recommendations for Heads of Department.
  • Risk management including assistance with production related insurances and Workplace Health and Safety compliance including management of claims.
  • Logistical advice including travel, accommodation, customs, carnets, storage and shipping.
  • Commercial and legal affairs including negotiation of Enterprise Agreement with the Australian union (MEAA), preparation of production agreement templates, advice regarding reputable production and post production suppliers and solutions and entry into all contracts with Australian cast, crew, locations, suppliers and facilities.
  • Financial services including assistance with Australian taxation arrangements and tax structuring, registration of production’s Australian company entity, establishment and administration of production bank accounts (local and escrow holding accounts) and administration of payments.
