This survey report reveals increases in foreign production and co-production activity, particularly TV drama. The survey covers all Australian and co-production titles made each year, as well foreign titles if they are shot in Australia or do post, digital or visual effects (PDV) work here.

Screen Australia's supplementary analysis of post, digital and visual effects activity shows that income to PDV companies from work on features and TV drama has averaged $129 million annually for the past three years. This represents approximately 23 per cent of total production expenditure during that period by features and TV drama projects in Australia. Australian productions accounted for the majority (73 per cent) of this work over the three years.
