The funding body's online production fund recognises the significance of online platforms for screen creatives.

Screen Australia have committed over $500,000 in funding to five new online-specific scripted drama projects. 

These five projects showcase not just the possibilities of online content, but the depth and breadth of the scripted drama form: Air’s Jenna Cosgrove comes science fiction series 2121, and the more light hearted sci-fi dramedy Fracketty Frack: It’s The Frackpocalypse; and Sex & Death will follow an aspiring actress on the autism spectrum as she navigated her early twenties, with the support of completion funding through the Online Projects program. With full production funding, Cooked will be developed as an animated comedy about the ghost of Captain Cook from Gamilaraay and Mandandanji writer-director Jake Duczynski, and Ding Dong I’m Gay will arrive on the small screen as a queer coming of age comedy; These projects.will be self-published on a variety of digital platforms, including Youtube and Facebook.
