Question to add onto this, but were you able to put aside money from this to pay yourself?

Having unique having unique content on various platforms was helpful. We did little videos that I film just using my phone with the actors to introduce each episode on Facebook before we launch the episode on YouTube and those videos did quite well. It’s interesting that I spent all this time trying to make a really awesome looking show, and then some of the videos that were getting the most engagement to begin with where these shitty phone videos. Something to think about. But I think an audience likes to feel like they’re in the room with you

When you make a fake commercial on the company is not paying you for it. So you could be like I have a great idea for dove, and then just get a bunch of people together and make a commercial for dove as a sample of your work but they’re not actually using it as their commercial. Look into Tongle

I knew you were somewhere cold but in my head I was just like “oh, so normal Canada then?” lol

Just saw your tweet…

“I’m sitting on the floor of a Canadian funding panel at @VanWebFest so #ama! #vwf18 !”

So obvious question, why are there no chairs? :smiley:

Can you talk a bit about your interest in “characters in their world” and how you develop their stories in web series format?
