ABOUT THE BOOK
Stop dreaming of selling your TV series to the studios, and start creating it online. New book shows you how.
There is a revolution in TV-one that is creating undreamed-of opportunities for both aspiring and established filmmakers. BYTE-SIZED TELEVISION: CREATE YOUR OWN TV SERIES ON THE INTERNET by Ross Brown (Michael Wiese Productions, March 2011, paperback) is your handbook to it. In it you'll find everything you need to know to get your Internet TV series up and running and potentially reach millions of viewers.
Gone are the days when you had to scramble for the rare chance to pitch your show to a studio exec; and no longer do you need studio backing for distribution. "On the Internet, with dozens of hosting sites open to all, there are no gatekeepers to tell you why you can't do what you know you can, and virtually no limits to the size of the audience," says Brown. Maybe that's why The Cohen brothers, Jerry Zucker, and other respected filmmakers are now creating content for the Web. In BYTE-SIZED TELEVISION you'll learn how to join their ranks.
- How writing for Internet TV differs from writing for broadcast TV;
- How Internet TV is removing the gatekeepers to creative expression and why this is great for both amateurs and professional writers and filmmakers;
- How to write a series character that will make people want to return to your show;
- The Internet TV series' that you should be watching and learning from;
- The pilot and beyond: Everything you need to know to write and produce Webisodes;
- What you need to know about marketing and publicizing your Internet TV series;
- A primer on the best Web sites to host your series;
- The lowdown on what equipment you'll need.
