Backyard Survivor is back for a 5th season.

We are a team of student / independent filmmakers. Last season sported a crew of 50 people to pull off an epic 40-hour shoot. Each season our team grows, many return for subsequent seasons but there's always room for newcomers. We are committed to inclusion and creating equal opportunity regardless of your experience - we help each other learn and grow as we go.

Many roles available. Your name will appear in the credits, and you may use the content for your portfolio. This is an unpaid, community-focused passion project.

Episodes will be published to Facebook and YouTube where you can currently find S1-S3. Season 4 is in post-production.

Production scheduled will be one weekend in March 2022, exact dates TBC.

We are not affiliated with any business, promotion or advertising. Crowd-funding raised has gone towards challenge construction, catering, and venue hire.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

We facilitate practise shoots, and training days in the lead up to the production weekend. Dates TBC. The Production will shoot over one weekend in March 2022.
