Beyond Screen Productions (BSP) has opened an office in Perth, known as Beyond West. The three Western Australia-based producers that Beyond West has signed agreements with are Melissa Kelly at Factor 30 Films, Kelrick Martin at Spear Point Productions and Russell Vines at Zinc Finger.
Under the arrangement, BSP will provide production advice and legal, accounting and management support during the development phase. Beyond West will act as co-producer on each project produced with Beyond International providing sales and marketing support through its offices and staff in Ireland, the UK and U.S.
Beyond International Limited CEO and Managing Director Mikael Borglund said: “ We have been impressed by the growing pool of talented filmmakers in the West for some time, and have been examining ways to do more work there, both through co-productions, and in international distribution. Opening an office in Perth will allow us to work much more closely with local producers.”
