Shooting and sharing a low budget web TV series is one of the best ways to introduce your story to the market for the first time, build word-of-mouth buzz, and ultimately attract the attention of Hollywood producers.

In this comprehensive class, you will learn how to:

  • Rewrite your script to fit the requirements of a micro budget production
  • Get corporate sponsors to pay for your web series
  • Raise money from Internet crowd funding sites
  • Put together a budget for your production
  • Hire good SAG actors and a competent crew even if you have little money to pay people up front
  • Rent the right video, audio, lighting, and grip equipment
  • Locate and secure great locations for free
  • Stage the scene properly and get sufficient shot coverage to make editing easier
  • Maximize production value
  • Edit your video with professional editing software
  • Add music, sound effects, and voiceover to your videos
  • Create visual effects with inexpensive software

Using real world case studies and proven strategies you can implement right away with your own projects, the instructor will show you everything you need to know to get started on your web series.

Course Options

This class is available in 2 formats:

1. Live Webinar
An instructor-led course that takes place through our learning management system at a scheduled date and time. You have the ability to ask questions and interact with the instructor. If applicable, homework assignments can be emailed to the teacher for feedback.

2. On-Demand Video
A downloadable video recording of the class for people who can't commit to a specific day and time for regular class meetings or who wish to get started immediately. These self-paced instructional videos include the same PowerPoint presentations and other course materials as the live lectures, only without teacher feedback or the ability to ask questions. The benefit of the videos is you can rewind and fast forward to particular sections, and rewatch the class as many times as you want 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from any computer or mobile device.
