Making a Web Series - Dunedin/Invercargill Workshops

Making a Web Series - Dunedin/Invercargill Workshops


WORKSHOPS: SAT 14 JUNE 2014, DUNEDIN and SUN 15 JUNE 2014, INVERCARGILL

Script to Screen presents a filmmaking workshop on the web series format, with guest speakers Kiel McNaughton (creator/director/actor) and Kerry Warkia (creator/producer/actor), both of whom were key creatives in the successful NZ web series Auckland Daze and new series Nia's Extra Ordinary Life.

Come and join us for this productive and inspiring one day workshop to learn about this growing medium, and the opportunities and challenges it provides. This workshop is free and open to anyone who is passionate about making film or TV. It is suitable for beginners through to people with filmmaking and/or screenwriting experience.

What is a web series? Web series are episodic dramas or documentaries - like a TV series, but only available online through TV on Demand, youtube, vimeo, the Web Series Channel, or a dedicated website for the series. Web series can be anywhere from self-funded to high budget, and episode lengths range from 2-100mins. Successful NZ web series include the NZonAir funded Auckland Daze and Reservoir Hill, which both screen on TVNZ Ondemand. Auckland Daze has returned for its second season as a broadcast show.

Why make one? Web series are usually shows with characters and themes that may not ever get mainstream TV funding, because they are too 'niche'. Filmmakers can make short episodic drama about characters that they connect with, and use online avenues to find an audience. Some NZ filmmakers like Roseanne Liang (Flat3) are now turning to self-funded web series as a means to continue to produce creative work in between projects. It keeps the creative juices flowing while also allowing them to test ideas and processes on a lower budget.

Come and hear creator/director Kiel McNaughton (Auckland Daze, Nia's Extra Ordinary Life) and creator/producer Kerry Warkia (Auckland Daze, Flat3, Nia's Extra Ordinary Life) discuss the creative possibilities of the web series format. The morning session will cover writing, directing and producing a web series yourself, using clips to demonstrate. Followed by a fun afternoon session of sharing and discussing ideas.

COST: The workshop is free but please bring your own lunch. Morning and afternoon tea will be provided.

WHAT TO BRING: A formed idea! You will have the chance to share your idea for a web series and get feedback.

REGISTRATION: Please RSVP to Eloise eloise@script-to-screen.co.nz
