Developing and Producing a Web Series:
Today’s viewers are transitioning away from broadcast television. In its wake, a new delivery method has emerged allowing independent filmmakers to broadcast original content directly to streamers and “bingers” as a web series. Also known as “webisodes”, today’s directors and producers format their work as a preview, a promotion, or a collection of shorts for online distribution and receive immediate feedback from viewers. In this Filmmaker Workshop, filmmakers of all ages and experience levels will learn how to develop and write a TV series for the internet comparable to popular miniseries and webisodes seen on YouTube, Vimeo and Tumblr.
This class is taught by Donald Tynes, who has worked in the film industry for over sixteen years producing an independent film and a syndicated television show. His most recent project, the award-winning documentary short, DAN BEHIND HIS EYES has played film festivals across the country. His also an instructor in Full Sail University’s Bachelor of Film program.
Joining Don Tynes is veteran Hollywood screen writer Michael Tabb. Tabb has penned feature film scripts, helped develop television series, and has lectured on screenwriting at The Screenwriters World Conference, San Diego’s Writers Conference and in classrooms at FSU, UCLA and USC. He is an award-winning professor of the MFA writing program for screenwriting and advanced script editing at Full Sail University. Michael does business under the banner of his company Burning Tree Films, Inc., and is a co-founder of the scripted web-series site made for Hollywood professionals, www.strike.tv.
