Filming is to begin in Perth this month on the second series of Screenwest supported series The Heights. Produced by Matchbox Pictures and For Pete’s Sake Productions for ABC, The Heights received major production investment from Screenwest and Screen Australia.
The second season of the drama serial will start shooting in Perth on August 26, providing more opportunities for emerging directors, writers and actors. Screenwest collaborated with Matchbox Pictures and For Pete’s Sake Productions on the first, 30-episode series in 2018-19. The production model saw students from North Metropolitan TAFE and the WA Screen Academy work with experienced creatives across the team. The production supported 41 interns and attachments, gave 30% of staff their first screen credit, and adopted a proactive diversity hiring strategy.
