Project Description

Create the first episode of your own amazing Web Series - with tools to grow a cult following.

ASSIGNMENT

Produce your first episode.

An episode you can look at as an example of using two people in a simple scene to externalize internal feelings from my show is Yes or No. Whenever one person has feelings for someone and is trying to tell them, you've got some drama. Other web series I like are My Mad Fat Diary and The Field.

DELIVERABLE

Upload your episode to to YouTube or Vimeo. Share your link or episode on the Skillshare Project Gallery.

CONTEST

I'll select one winner to receive a 30-minute Skype feedback session and a signed copy of one of my books. Upload your project by 11:59 PM EST on January 30th, 2015 for consideration and follow me on Twitter @OJBishopsGarden. If you win, I would love for you to review my book on Amazon for feedback.
