For about two years now, I’ve been obsessed with the possibilities of the webseries as a narrative format and a potential business model. I’ve followed the ups and downs of the industry, studied the dedicated creators and critics, watched and loved shows like Joe Swanberg‘s “Young American Bodies” and Lena Dunham’s “Tight Shots” and many others. I launched a new media initiative for a local PBS station and shepherded the content to over a quarter of a million views and an invitation to the YouTube Partner program. After one false start and many months of observation, I’ve gone all in and produced my own original series.
Suddenly, I’m on a journey to the new media frontier and I intend to keep this blog as a record of my trip. It’s a place for me to ask questions, get answers and hopefully, a place for me to publicly analyze the failures, successes and lessons I learn along the way.
