(Magdalena Waz) #66

Hi all,

My name’s Magdalena, and I’m in LA now but I’m fairly new here (<1 year). Recently, my main task has been releasing the first season of “My Astronaut,” a web series about a woman who is competing for a spot on a civilian mission to Mars and her boyfriend who doesn’t quite realize what a forever move to Mars might mean for their relationship. It was a lot of fun to make.

I’m basically a writer and producer (and actor now). I’ve had other roles on set, and I love anything in the art department, but I’m no cinematographer, and I can’t even flex a bicep, so anything to do with lugging heavy equipment is not for me, unfortunately.

For non-film things, talk to me about fiction, space/physics, impending environmental calamity, and cooking.

(lifecoachedseries) #67

Hey all, I am the creator of the webseries Life, Coached. We had a nice festival run that just ended in Miami. Shot the first two episodes with hopes of using them to pitch the show as a full length series but apparently that is damn hard to make happen, ha. So now we’re beginning to get together the means to shoot the rest of season one. Excited to have the show on Stareable now. Hope you all enjoy it.

(Krista Hovsepian) #70

Hey, guys! I’ve been keeping an eye on the community and absorbing all kinds of great information from Stareable for a while… finally ready to jump in! Just launched Wholesome Foods, I Love You… Is That OK? - an offbeat dramedy about a neurotic yoga teachers who sets out in search of love at her favorite organic supermarket. LOVE that I finally have some time to better explore all of the awesome projects here.

(Alex G Smith) #77

Thank You!

So heres a question: I submitted my show through this site, but I can’t figure out how to connect my web series with my Profile. Still learning but would love to figure that out. Thanks!

(Bri Castellini) #78

Right now you actually can’t link them, but we’re working on it! They’re technically separate websites at this point.

(Katie Orwig) #79

Name: Katie
Location: currently in Indy but originally from West Virginia
Web series made (if any): none, that’s actually what brought me here.
Preferred film roles (writer, producer, director, actor, etc): my background in entertainment is mostly in live theatre and I prefer the Jack-of-all-trades method. I have done a bit of everything and specialize in several.
The film thing you’re best at: appreciating things for what they are and not projecting my biases onto them, knowing the difference b/w critique and criticism.
The film thing you’re worst at: experience in this specific element of entertainment, so: certain lingo, processes, resources, etc. Another reason I wanted to give this community a try.

(tony david) #80

Okay, so my name’s Tony David, (I have two first names, absolutely ridiculous I know) and I’m based in London.

I have created a six episode web series called “The Single” and I’m now in that weird place of NOT knowing what to do next really; it’s like I’m in a state of paralysis!!

I’m cameraman by profession for almost a million years so I do that easily but I love the writing process and directing too.

I have no intention of getting in front of the camera!

I guess the next step is promote, promote, promote but I need guidance here.

Do I set up a new facebook account completely or a page on my regular Facebook account? Do I create a blog. Will Tumblr actually do anything or instagram for that matter?

(Sarah Golden) #81

Hello, my name is Sarah. I’m a storyteller who loves stories from any medium: webseries, video games, movies, tv shows and of course books. I’ve written spec scripts for script contests, but I could definitely improve my skills in screenwriting. I have a few ideas for a web series, but I haven’t started one yet. I would love to be a screenwriter, and I even want to try acting.
I’ve been complimented on the way I write dialogue, but I could use help with organization and character development.
I’m so excited to be here, and I can’t wait to learn and connect with fellow creatives.
Thank you for this opportunity :slight_smile:

(Carolyn) #82

Hi everyone!

My name is Carolyn Busa and I am a stand-up comedian/writer based in Brooklyn, NY. I am the creator of a very low-budget, very ‘figuring it out as I go’ web series called Sexually Speaking which focuses on my sexuality as I turned 30.

For someone with no training or proper programs (I use iMovie to edit) I think my work is pretty damn good. However I do struggle with marketing and promoting my series and feel without a real foot in the film industry, my passion project stays stagnant. But ima keep doing it anyways, right!

Feel free to say hi or follow me here on Twitter.
