PASC’s Episode One Web Series Pilot Programme, featuring many DEGANZ members, finally came to fruition at the Hollywood Avondale cinema.

After a year of developing and producing their pilot episodes, the teams pitched to industry commissioners and programmers in hopes of earning support to complete their series. A celebratory evening followed as the creatives shared their hard work with their families, casts, crews, and wider industry practitioners.

Of the five projects, four had DEGANZ members at the helm as both directors and editors. See the list below!
