In regards to my series, my Season 2 is largely shaping up to be what you have listed as your Season 1 (favors, begging, etc). As I move forward I’m trying to be smarter about it than I was years ago when I started. Does something like Seeka TV take that into consideration? How can we utilize extra-curricular content to boost our shows to hit that crowd-funding and investor-backed stage?
To continue using my show as an example: It’s built to look and feel like a video game, even down to much of the meta humor. Combat is turn-based, and the show has a very wink and nudge element to it. But because it’s based in a love for video games, all sorts of side content is possible like let’s plays of games that inspired the show, or live streams of animating the show, etc. There are a lot of things that can prop up an animated show like mine but it’s hard to tell in this landscape what helps, what hurts, and really where to start from a practical standpoint.
