What are the requirements for the first-time producer bonus?
A production qualifies for this bonus if:
- the producer does not have more than one previous producer screen credit for a production that was commercially released, or broadcast in prime time; and
- the producer has not participated as a producer on another production which received an OFTTC certificate; and
- the qualifying production company is not controlled directly or indirectly by: an individual with more than one previous producer screen credit for a production that was commercially released or broadcast in prime time; or by someone who has participated as a producer on a production that has received an OFTTC certificate; or by a corporation that has received an OFTTC certificate.
If you would like to apply for the bonus, you should contact us for a First-Time Producer Declaration, which will have to be submitted (along with a c.v.) for every producer on the production, including the executive producers and co-producers.
