Our congratulations goes out to Show Me Shorts winners Dylan Pharazyn, winner of the DEGNZ Best Editor award for the music video Career by Wax Chattels, and Isaac Knights-Washbourn, who was awarded the DEGNZ Best Director award for Money Honey.
Stuck in the middle of Auckland’s housing crisis, two young hustlers discover some money and try to double it in the hope of buying an epic sandwich in Knights-Washbourn’s Money Honey. Catch the film in The Sampler. Dylan Pharazyn directed and edited the music video for Wax Chattels, which also took home NZ On Air Best Music video. This vivid tale plays as part of Tangled Worlds.
In another special mention, the Department of Post Best NZ Film Award went to Tweedie Waititi and DEGNZ member Cian Elyse White for Daddy’s Girl (Kōtiro).
