Interested in making a web series? Join me and the rest of this fantastic panel of web series creators on May 12th at PhillyCAM.
Leeway Foundation and Scribe Video Center present Smaller Screen, Greater Impact: The How and Why of the Web Series. Over the past several years, web series have become a viable alternative for filmmakers to share their stories. As this format creates new ways for aspiring and established artists to reach new audiences and have increased control of their voice, what new hurdles do they create? Join us as we take a look at webisodes on a larger screen (some for the first time ever!) and hear from the creators about writing, shooting, fundraising, and what they’ve learned throughout the process.
The panel features Hye Yun creator and star of Hey Yun; Jen Richards, writer, producer, and star of Her Story; Sara Zia Ebrahimi (LTA ’14, ACG ’11, ’09) writer and director of Bailout, activist; Tayarisha Poe (ACG ‘15,’ 14) writer and director of Selah and the Spades: an Overture; And activist, Sharron Cooks will speak about the media representation of transgender women. Moderated by Laura Deutch (ACG ’10), Director of Education & Production at PhillyCAM.
