“Queensland’s screen industry is thriving, and my Government’s support for this new studio will bring a new wave of investment in creating jobs of the future,” the Premier said.

“We have listened to that feedback and are proud to be able to help support a resilient and innovative Queensland screen industry with this investment,” the Premier said.
“We are excited to be able to provide a space for both established and up-and-coming content producers to work and collaborate.”
