About This Class

Waiting for someone to read your script? Take control instead. In this class you will learn to create, edit, shoot, and market your own web series.

Learn step by step how to come up with an idea for your series, write a script, hire cast and crew, direction, shoot your episode, edit your episode and add music. Finally, you will learn how to promote and distribute your series once it is completed. This course is based on Otessa Ghadar’s book The Wild West of Filmmaking and a Master’s Class on New Media & Web Series she taught at American University.
