What does it take to make a web series successful? What does success look like?

Web Series veteran Scott Albert presents a practical, from the trenches, talk that explains why web series is the greatest thing that’s ever happened for independent filmmakers and storytellers. In three hours you’ll learn how web series are the same as film and TV and the ways in which they are completely, world changing-ly different. This session will introduce you to the unique aspects of being a web series creator: monetization and financing, transmedia and social networking, release and rollout, and the business of web series – can you make money?
