WIFT-ers' work is everywhere!

Yes, the wonderful work of WIFT NZ members is featuring all over the place at the moment! Show them your support!

First up is 2Cents2Much The team at HexWork are behind this chat show on The Spinoff. Jin Fellett produced, Sophie Dowson and Amber Easby executive produced, Jazz dos Santos was production manager and Erin Woolhouse was colourist.   
Comedian Janaye Henry (pictured) hosts a chat show for a generation who don’t listen to talkback radio or sit down for the 6pm news every night. From the cost of living crisis to the monarchy, Janaye gives her 2 cents worth via comedy, interviews and sketches. 

Homebound 3.0 Michelle Ang and Hannah Marshall star in this comedy series directed by Johnny Barker and Hweiling Ow.
In exchange for free rent, Henry is forced to go out on arranged 'dates' by his parents and their overzealous family friends. When Henry is matched with Melissa (Michelle Ang) - a fellow homebound 30-something - they conspire to fake a relationship to get their parents off their backs.

Double Parked Antonia Prebble stars in this series produced by Bronwynn Bakker written by Hannah Marshall, Alice Snedden, Kura Forrester and Chris Parker.
Young lesbian couple Nat (Madeleine Sami) and Steph (Antonia Prebble) are left dumbfounded when a 'disappointing' trip to the IVF clinic and a 'botched' home insemination job actually leaves both women pregnant.

Written and directed by Lindsay Christopherson the short film A Girl Called Elvis is screening at the Vero Beach Film Festival in Florida, and at Atlanta Shortsfest this month. So far AGCE has been accepted into 10 festivals (and counting!)
AGCE is about two siblings growing closer through a family quest. When 10-year old Ellie hears that her father is back in town, she convinces her half-sister Carol to help her reconnect with him. Together with Carol's boyfriend Dion, they set off on their journey.

Well done to April Phillips and the team who worked on the short film Mako which has been selected along with seven other finalists in the NZIFF Ngā Whanaunga Māori Pasifika Shorts this year. April was one of the screenwriters on the 16-minute film. 

This Is Wheel Life Rachale Davies of Boxed Media produced this webseries for TAHI on on RNZ.
A look into the lives of Soph and Indy, the quadriplegic-carer-cousin duo. As if navigating your 20’s isn’t hard enough, Sophia Malthus became a quadriplegic at age 19 after a horse riding accident. Finding carers to help her 24 hours a day is no easy task. Lucky for Soph, her broke cousin Indy was on the hunt for a job to pay the bills while she pursued a career in acting.
