At the heart of all successful filmmaking is effective collaboration – not only among the crew, but between the filmmaker and the community, residents, local council, local businesses, police, and other government agencies.

The Shire of Exmouth provides information to interested parties and aims to cut red tape and streamline approval processes in collaboration with other stakeholders and Screenwest.
