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.

Our congratulations to Tim Hamilton!
