About This Class

Creating a web series requires a great commitment. It requires time, money, energy, creativity, and any other resources you're able or willing to throw at it. On the other hand, creating a web series can be incredibly rewarding, allowing you to expand personally and professionally. 

Before diving into your web series production, however, it's important to know where you're going, what gifts you'd like to share with the world, and what you're hoping to achieve with your web series. Your why and your what will give you the foundation and the fuel you need to create a compelling web series that will resonate with your audience.
