Popular TikTok series n00b, co-created and directed by DEGANZ member Victoria Boult (Incubator 2023), is heading to ThreeNow and Three as a new comedy series. According to the NZ on Air media release, Great Southern Television has received up to $1,499,541 to bring the series to fruition.

The show originated on the short form video social media via the Every Voice initiative between NZ on Air, Screen Australia, and TikTok. Since its release in August 2022, it has garnered over 1.5 million TikTok views across its twelve parts.

The anthology series follows teens in Aotearoa in the early 2000s as they venture into the unknown territories of sex, relationships, and the internet. Each episode is chock full of the decade’s iconic aesthetics and harks back to online video chat rooms, making mixtapes, and embracing your inner emo.

The TV series will differ slightly, following a group of adolescent outcasts in small-town New Zealand as they attempt to cope with life through the internet and its newly invented social media.

Congrats Victoria! We can’t wait to see how the show evolves and grows.

With over 70,000 short films submitted from 44 countries, DEGANZ member Tim Hamilton’s Zero Gravity was able to beat out the competition to win the Best Edit Award at the inaugural TikTok Short Film Competition.

Tim was able to make Zero Gravity on a shoestring budget of $600 with the help of AWA Films and his colleagues at POW Studios. Speaking to TikTok, he stated how thrilled he is to see TikTok recognised as a place of storytelling and that “the most innovative filmmaking techniques you can see today come straight out of TikTok”.

TikTok launched the global #TikTokShortFilm competition in partnership with the Festival de Cannes where experienced and emerging filmmakers could demonstrate their skills with the help of TikTok’s creative tools and effects. A jury of industry leaders judged the submissions.

Watch the hilarious Zero Gravity here.

Our congratulations to Tim Hamilton!
