Paste Magazine: Alex Dobrenko’s Distance Shows That Sometimes the Internet Can Still Produce Magic

If you can’t make it to the AMA tomorrow, leave comments below with questions for Alex! Topics may include:

  • The process of creating a series from start to finish - pilot, festivals, pitching to networks and studios, fundraising, writing a season, shooting a season, releasing a season, etc
  • Growing an audience for our show before we ever released
  • Fundraising specifically, how to get investors on board for your series
  • Developing a non-traditional narrative that is specifically suited for the web, e.g. our “choose which side to watch first” approach
  • Anything else!

What would get you to participate in AMAs more often?

Alex - Thank you for sharing your experience. In addition to your insight on hashtags, do different social media platforms accomplish different goals for you?

Welcome Alex!

I checked out your first episode(s) from Sam & Emily’s perspective. It is quite adorable! What was your writing process like and how many drafts did you have to do? Thanks!

@w-e-spear and @ghettonerdgirl- thanks for your first pre-questions! You can certainly add more throughout the day, but if you can also make it to the event that would be cool too :slight_smile: 11am PST, 2pm EST.
