Congratulations to DEGANZ member Jack Woon on receiving NZFC Catalyst funding for his short film, Let’s Settle This.

The film’s logline: Two Kung fu masters meet in a Chinese diner via a dating app. They must settle the bill – and an ancient vendetta – to consummate their fateful encounter.

Jack will write and direct, with DEGANZ board member Stallone Vaiaoga-Ioasa producing alongside his sister, Abba-Rose Dinah Vaiaoga-Ioasa.

Catalyst He Kauahi supports New Zealand filmmakers to progress their talents to the next stage and make exceptional, high end narrative short films that will ignite the flame and be the catalyst for change in their career. Teams have been funded $100,000 to go towards their short film and towards the development of the feature film concept.
