Writing the Web Series
ABOUT THE WEBINAR
Gone are the days of waiting for the phone to ring; your writing career is in your control when you write and produce your own work. Although you have the freedom as a content creator to write whatever you want, there are strategies you can employ to increase your chances of success.
Rebecca will share invaluable lessons from the trenches as a new media writer and producer, and from having interviewed many successful content creators for Script Magazine. You’ll learn how to write short scripts that pack a punch, how to keep costs down while keeping production value up, and how to increase your chances of building audiences on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter.
You’ll also get an overview of how to gain exposure and credibility as a writer through submitting to film and web festivals and online platforms. It’s never been easier to create your own work, but learning how to be smart about it will save you time and money and propel your career forward that much faster.
