Ella Watkins wins Australian TikTok film competition

Tasmanian TikToker Ella Watkins has won $25K for her winning pilot in the 'Got a Minute?' competition.

Tasmanian filmmaker Ella Watkins has won the Screen Forever ‘Got A Minute?’ competition, with a pilot for her series The Down Under.

Watkins has been making TikToks since 2019, and her videos regularly rack up more than a million views. In The Down Under, she plays multiple characters in a post-death processing department, who she describes as ‘corporate slaves who eventually became anarchist anti-heroes’. The series being teased in her pilot video is a darkly comedic one that targets everyday bureaucracy.
