a satirical mockumentary series following three ignorant, young reporters who always miss the point and make every story about themselves. IT'S LIKE VICE GONE WRONG!
DAFUQ? is a 6-part ABC iview original web series which debuted online in 2016. Created, written and directed by Henry Inglis & Matt Lovkis and produced by Lauren Elliott. DAFUQ? takes itself very seriously and is desperate to be gritty, edgy and relevant, but it never quite reaches its lofty journalistic ambitions, owing to the fact the hosts are self-important millennials who care more about themselves than the subjects they investigate. Lee D (Matt Lovkis), Rift (Henry Inglis) and Pandora (Amberly Cull) should never have been given a platform because they’re nowhere near as cool, competent or fearless as they think they are! DAFUQ? showcases the disastrous side-effects of arrogant young media types being given a voice they haven’t earned.
DAFUQ? won Best Comedy, Best Director and Best Editing at Next Gen Webfest 2017, was nominated for Best Writing, Best Production Design and Best Sound at the WA Screen Awards 2016, and was an Official Selection for Raindance Web Festival 2016, Melbourne Webfest 2016, CinéfestOZ 2016, the Online Video Awards 2017 and St Kilda Film Festival 2017.
The entire first season is now streaming on ABC iview geo-blocked to Australia. Please email Lauren at firstname.lastname@example.org for an international private link.
