Forward works will begin at the site of Western Australia’s new screen production facility.
The site located along Marshall Road, near the Malaga Metronet station precinct, will prepare the site for the future construction of a screen production facility, and is anticipated to be completed late next year.
Premier Roger Cook: “Western Australia is already seeing a return on our Production Attraction Incentive investment, with filming of major productions like The Surfer, The Twelve and We Bury the Dead creating local jobs, enabling local skill development and showing off our beautiful State.
“My Government is delivering a range of economic diversification initiatives to set our State up for the long-term, and the development of this studio will cement WA as the place to film high-quality productions.”
Culture and the Arts Minister David Templeman said, “Importantly, we’re now a step closer to having the infrastructure needed to take our screen industry to the next level, which will put us in an even stronger position to attract larger national and international film and TV projects to our State.
“The studio will have the potential to generate significant employment throughout its operations, plus other benefits from attracting more people into WA for accommodation providers, hospitality and transport.
“We’re very excited to see this project progress and continue building our screen production capabilities here in Western Australia.”
The WA State Government continues to assess Home Fire’s proposal for the site.
