The Film and Video Production industry is a high-risk venture for investors, with about only one in every 15 films produced breaking even financially. Recently, new Federal Government film incentives, including for TV productions, have been boosting industry growth. However, the film production revival relies on the availability of risk capital and investment funds, which had dried up during the global financial crisis. Demand from film distributors, cinemas, network TV and pay-TV stations for film products is vital to industry performance. Similarly, demand from advertising agencies for commercial production is essential.
Companies in this industry produce motion pictures and TV shows on film or video (including DVD and Blu-ray) for cinema release or TV broadcasting. This industry also includes services like casting and post-production activities, such as film editing, animation, special effects, titling and sub-titling. This industry excludes film and video productions undertaken by in-house production facilities owned by TV stations.
