Boult Strikes Fresh Shorts Funding

DEGANZ member and participant in this year’s Incubator, Victoria Boult, has been selected for Kōpere Hou Fresh Shorts. This is a massive feat; this year, the final six projects were chosen from 89 applications.

Through this fund, Victoria’s team will receive development support and a grant of $25,000 to make their short film, Invisible Dragons. Industry experts will offer advice over an intensive three-week period. During this time, teams will be able to refine their story, vision, and production plans.

In addition to directing this project, Victoria is credited as the writer.

This has come along with a string of other successes for Victoria recently. This year alone, she has been selected for DEGANZ’s Incubator, Show Me Shorts’ Development Lab, and Screen Canberaa’s POD program. Additionally, since the release of her TikTok series n00b, created as part of NZOA and Screen Australia’s TikTok Every Voice initiative, her work has garnered over 1.5 million views and 12,000 followers.

Congratulations to Victoria and the rest of the team; we cannot wait to see your finished film!
