The NZFC have announced that 19 successful projects will receive funding as part of Ara ki Te Puna Kairangi – The Premium Development Fund, with a total of 1.5 million offered. The successful projects represent a broad array of ideas with the potential to engage both local and international audiences, and includes projects by our very own DEGNZ members.

Hannah Marshall will go ahead with another season of drama series Alibi with her production company Plus6Four Entertainment Limited.

Roseanne Liang, Ally Xue, JJ Fong and Perlina Lau, alongside Creamerie Ltd, have received funding for a second season of the post-apocalyptic black comedy Creamerie.

Max Currie with Autonomouse Limited, has received funding for another season of Rūrangi, a queer and trans-positive drama.

Congratulations to all our members. We can’t wait to see the projects come to life.

Season 3 of Sui Generis is underway and the creators are crowdfunding to shoot the last episode of this anthology series. The series’ director, Roberto Nascimento (DEGNZ) and his production team are aiming for a $6000 goal for their boosted campaign. Each episode of Sui Generis is a stand-alone story with its own style, conceived and written by members and allies of the LQBTQIA+ community.

The final episode is titled Vanessa. This story is inspired by the idea of anonymity – with being unknown in a new city, what would you do? What could you do? What version of yourself would be presented… and would you take advantage of that?

Here are some ways you can help them:

  • Contribute to the campaign. Any donation, no matter how big or small, will be truly appreciated and celebrated. We know the times are a-challenging, so if you can’t contribute financially perhaps you could…
  • Share this campaign with your friends and extended whānau.
  • Help spread the word
  • Give them a hand – they are currently in search of a costume design/wardrobe person OR a runner.

Loner is a six-part web series, directed by DEGNZ member and Incubator alumna Lauren Porteous, that explores friendship, love and loneliness and reminds us that the only way things change is through action. Loner is now available on NZ On Screen. The series won Best Narrative Director at the 2020 NZ Web Fest Awards. 

Extrovert Mel (Lucinda Hare from Auckward Love and SMOKO) convinces her friend Charlotte (Gloria Faesen-Kloet from Three Wise Cousins) to head out to a party. Their nights end very differently. Charlotte bumps into a kimono-wearing man writing a screenplay. But there are more surprises in store.

Flat3 Productions was founded by 4 Kiwi women of Chinese heritage. Since their humble beginnings, they have accumulated a wealth of experience in writing, directing, and producing scripted comedy/drama for online consumption. Flat3’s award-winning content has garnered four NZTV award nominations. After 8 years together, the team has decided to make the jump into premium TV format. This next phase has already begun with the company securing NZ On Air production funding for a TVNZ television comedy (Creamerie). Individually, Ally and JJ have expanded their interest into other areas of filmmaking – primarily producing and writing. The pair recently wrapped principal photography on their TVNZ OnDemand teen comedy webseries (MEME).

Alibi

We’re having a Young Creators hang-out on the last Wednesday of the month! We are stoked to have David de Lautour (Westside‘s Ted West) in to share on his experiences as co-creator and director of Plus6Four Entertainment’s binge-worthy web series Alibi.

David is also a director on Westside this season. Find out David’s advice to other filmmakers looking to create high-quality, local web series that further their careers.

Alibi is a six-part TVNZ OnDemand series where each episode shows the questioning of a suspect in the murder of a 17-year-old girl. Viewers get the fun of figuring out who’s responsible by choosing which order they watch the interviews.

There will be time for audience questions and the bar will be open. We’ll be out on the Sun Deck catching the last of summer. See you there!

WHEN: Wed 27 March 2019, 6:30pm. Talk starts 6:45pm
WHERE: Longroom – Sun Deck, 114 Ponsonby Road, Auckland
