Web Series Development Part 2 – Your Team

Web Series Production TeamThe idea, the spark that makes web series, TV and film so magical, usually starts in one single brain… maybe two in some cases. But also truth, film, video, visual storytelling in general, don’t become a reality without a team of people that work hard to make it happen. That is what this post is about. The team that you will need to bring together as soon as you have your web series screenplay ready.

Blip.tv Another Move in Pro of Web Series Producers

Blip.tvI have said many times on twitter, in this blog, in Facebook, and over coffee and beer with my friend: Blip.tv is the most producer friendly distribution and advertisement partner for almost all web series producers (maybe not the exact words, but more or less).

Today (June 1st 2011), from their brand NY office, Blip.tv co-founder announced they have created a distribution partnership with The Collective (I didn’t know who they where either).

So the web series from The Collective (Fred, iJustine, The Annoying Orange, among others.) will be distributed and sold (to advertisers) by blip.tv, and this will include the youtube channels (if have not used blip.tv or are not familiar with it, blip.tv distribute to many other sites, including YT).

This is a great news for any web producer, and not just the once that work with The Collective, because it is starting to legitimize a medium that has been somewhat just observed from the outside by investors and advertisers to see what happens.

Here is the video of the announcement. What do you think? Does it make you happy?

At first I tried to make this a single post, but I realized it was becoming long and bulky, so I had to break it down into several installments. This will also be the first piece of a new section I will open next week: Web Series 101. [Read more...]
