The Media Resource Centre, in partnership with YouTube, is delighted to present Let’s Make Web TV, a one day seminar at the Mercury Cinema in Adelaide, offering an opportunity to kick-start aspiring filmmakers’ careers via online delivery.
The seminar is a prerequisite to applications for the MRC’s Web TV! forthcoming production initiative, which offers up to three teams $2,500 cash plus $2,500 in-kind equipment hire to produce a webseries for online delivery and promotion via YouTube.
Featured speakers at the Let’s Make Web TV! seminar included Mike Jones (AFTRS Senior Lecturer) who spoke on serial narrative and the secrets of how to construct a successful webseries; Simon Britton (MediaWave Editor and Content Strategist), discussed online branding, content awareness and crowd-funding; and Wynston Alberts (Google/YouTube Aquistion Lead and Partner mMnager) offered advice on the hows and whys of marketing your webseries for profit in partnership with YouTube.
The seminar also featured engaging Q&A case studies from successful South Australian YouTube content creators Dario Russo & David Ashby (Italian Spiderman, Danger 5), Jeff Wong & Vihn Giang (Encyclopedia of Magic), Kirsty Stark, Ella Mcintyre & Victoria Cocks (Was_telander Panda_) and Alex Williamson (‘Shooter’ Williamson Comedy).
Kirsty Stark, who released her prologue for Wastelander Panda online to raise crowdfunds for the production of the webseries, recognizes that the web is changing the way people make and view short films;
“The MRC’s Let’s Make Web TV! initiative is a great opportunity to learn to create and distribute content for online audiences. Filmmakers no longer need to pay to enter dozens of film festivals in the hope that their work may eventually be selected to screen in front of a couple of hundred audience members. Instead, they can release and market their content directly to the people who want to watch it. This was the case with our Wastelander Panda Prologue, which had over 100,000 views in its first five days online.”
More information about 2013 Seminars will be released soon!
