Other important roles in production have been taken on by Ivan Davidov (editor), Dayne Blundell-Camden (first assistant director) and Ben Pascoe (camera and editing assistant).
ECU Masters graduate of the scriptwriting program, Tracey Defty-Rashid, is the script producer of Trapped and writer of several episodes. ECU film and video graduate Kathryn Dart is script supervisor and in charge of continuity.
Ceiwen Langley, who started off doing a professional placement with the script department, was later hired as the script editing assistant and Screen Academy graduates Lucinda Marty and Ben Young have written episodes for the series.
WAAPA graduates Sandy Mitchell and Jonelle Holman are handling the wardrobe.
Trapped screens on Seven at 7.00am on Sunday morning.
