Web series have been around since 1995, so the idea is not new. But is now the time for this short form episodic storytelling to flourish?
For our August Writer’s Room we meet the makers of two locally developed and produced web series, Flat 3 and The Factory, to explore the viability of the web TV format, avenues for funding, the pros of writing for a shorter format and building an audience.
Join us to hear writer/director Roseanne Liang (Flat 3), actor/instigator JJ Fong (Flat 3), writer/director Michael Bennett (The Factory), EP/actor Vela Manusaute (The Factory) and director Joe Lonie (The Factory) as they discuss the benefits and downsides of the web series format – is this the sustainable future?
Tuesday 27 August, drinks 7pm, talk 7:30-8:30pm, Classic Comedy Club, 321 Queen Street, Auckland, $5 koha appreciated. Stay afterwards for a slice of pizza on us and a drink.
