Are you new? Post here!

Hello everyone! My name is Robbie Tucker and I am brand new to this website. I just checked out an episode of the podcast this morning and really loved it. I am currently in the stage of pre-releasing my web series, The Boy In The Bathroom Sink. Now I’ll be honest I really had no idea what I was doing when I started this project. And I’m not really even a filmmaker I am a musician. But I’d been making some videos for my music ( https://youtu.be/HVQahaXIyRM ) and I just kind of fell in love with the process.

I am currently at the stage where I would normally upload my project to YouTube and then have no one ever watch it but since I spent so much time and put so much effort into this m, nearly 2 years in fact I thought it might be worth the time to try and release it properly, ha ha. At the moment all the social media content that I have for the series is the Facebook page is which you can check out here;

This is a three episode series. Episodes 1&2 are 40 minutes and the final episode is 60 minutes. This series uses a lot of my previously released music and also music from other artists as well as new music from myself.

Okay that’s all for now. I look forward to connecting with you!

Radically yours,
Robbie

I started off the same way, making music videos and then moving into web series :slight_smile:

Name: TPralinus, here let’s be a Misérable
Location: Paris (can’t collaborate with any of you guys)
Web series made (if any): Working on Ze Vlog of a Misérable. I’m trying to advertise it.
Preferred film roles (writer, producer, director, actor, etc): Writer, actor, I also really like editing (which is ironic since my first episodes are barely edited) and I do comics too so I like to draw.
The film thing you’re best at: having conceptual ideas nobody quite has and that are impossible to sell. Writing.
The film thing you’re worst at: advertising myself (found useful advice here, gonna dig. Thanks).

Loved Wish Weasel

Hi All,

I discovered this website through twitter.- My name is Ricky.

I’m a career music producer from NY, now indie artist / record label. I distribute my songs through my own label - Anirhythm.

I don’t like the title “jack of all trades”, because it can imply that i didn’t love something enough to master it, my creative career started as a DJ, and my main skill is studying a crowd and making them smile. Everything I’ve learned since has been to enhance that ability.

I was part of a major music production team for a little over 25 years, have received several awards. I then went independent and started my own label when the music industry was falling apart and at its worst lol.

i was first a dj, then I got into pro music as an arranger / editor, then I became a composer, then a programmer, then associate / assistant producer, then full producer, then indie artist, then cg artist, then stareable forum lol.

when I left the mainstream industry and went indie, I no longer had corporate support. my main focus was paying bills, staying alive… and doing what I knew best, making music. So, if I wanted to stay competitive, I had to learn production, mixing, mastering in more detail, cg and animation to make visuals for album covers and videos to promote my music releases. In the corporate days they had a specialist for every aspect of production, ultimately my “specialty” was midi programmer / producer…when the team leaders were out, I was left overseeing the projects. as an indie, I had to fill in the blanks. segway, jack of all trades …but I’d rather say I’m a survivor and I didn’t quit when I couldn’t get help.

In the process I learned some CG / Animation skills , and found that many of the production work flows in music applied to film. I got skilled enough to do freelance animation work with an upcoming film producer. ( and a big shout out to him, he was a life saver when I first transitioned to indie )

I’ve learned enough cg to consider an animated web series or even a film short - but in reality, it’s always been about new ways to promote my music.

here are 2 music videos I’ve made -


I can do better, but I don’t know my best since some of the things I’ve learned to do far exceed the time I can spend doing them all! “Art is never finished, only abandoned.” Leonardo da Vinci - this is especiallly true when rent is due lol!!

Anyways, that said, I’m here to make new friends, learn and find inspiration. <3

Wonderful to meet you all,

~Ricky

Hey everybody!

My name is Jordan McKinney and I’m a filmmaker based out of Los Angeles. I’m currently working on a web series that I write, direct, edit and act in about the relationship between the head writer and the star of a talk show done in the tone of emo Soundcloud rap. I use a fun camcorder that I pass around between the actors and construct the soundtrack off musicians I come in contact with on Soundcloud.

I think I’m great at putting things together and getting things done.
I’m not great with the technical aspects of filmmaking and that’s why I’ve put together this project so that I can learn everything about filmmaking at the same time.

Excited to be a part of this community and check out my show if you want to see what I’m working on! This Week In The NFL

Check out the #marketing posts for advice on expanding your audience!

Hello! I was excited to find that there’s a forum for people just like us… we’ve been making a webseries for nearly two years, basically just to make ourselves laugh, but I’ve gotten to the point where I’d genuinely like to have people see it.

We have done this series in a completely uncollaborative way: we’ve never once worked together on an episode. He does his part and I respond, and vice versa. We don’t know what the other person has done until their part is delivered.

We finished the six-episode first season earlier this year and just released the first episode of season two yesterday. I hope you’ll take a look, and I look forward to seeing what everyone else here is working on.

Hi Stareable Community!

My name is Georginna and my creative partner (and wife) is Natalia. We are web series creators in Los Angeles, new to Stareable.
We’re just launching our first season of our web series, Americans Abroad, and we’re excited to be part of the Stareable community!

I am an actor, writer, producer, director and Natalia is a V.O. actor, writer, composer and director. I am best at executing creative vision and could use a little help in organization and planning :smile:

We’d like to reach out to other web series creators to collaborate on spreading awareness on each others series. If you’re interested, let us know!

Looking forward to getting to know you guys!

Hi folks!

James Oliver here, Writer & Director - Manchester, UK. I love collaborative writing/work-shopping in rehearsals and shoot days! Struggling to get to grips with marketing/ self promotion.

Just completed our first series on FULL OF MIND A psychedelic and comedic odyssey of the mind: https://stareable.com/series/view/full-of-mind

Pilot ep: https://vimeo.com/220665994

It’s been lovely to find this forum and inspiring to discover a load of web series one place. Look forward to connecting with you guys!

Cheers!

Hello from Singapore, everyone!

I’m Ian, from and based on the island that set the context for Crazy Rich Asians. Not-so-fun fact: I’m only 2 of the three things in that film. And regrettably, it isn’t Rich.

I’ve only ever made one web series: Dot and the Green Pea

As a control freak, I’m usually the Director and Screenwriter for my work. But I do enjoy the collaborative process of working with fellow creatives. And I don’t bite, promise.

I’d say the best film thing I can do is to create complex characters grounded in reality. They’ve a range of emotional and psychological desires, which often lead to conflict and that’s how my stories come about.

The worst film failing of mine is in admin. I’m terrible at keeping up with different tracks of nitty gritty and experienced the full brunt of it when I tried to do a film without an Assistant Director. I’ve learnt never to torture myself like that ever again.

Hi guys,

A friend of mine in SF asked me to check on Stareable. Very impressive to say the least.

I’m Azuan Muda, a producer for films and commercials based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I do something similar with everybody here.

And I founded my own online TV, called Teeb TV - teebtv.com (not sure whether I can put the link here) - like the ‘Netflix’ for independent content creators. IT’S FREE for now.

We work with indie filmmakers around Southeast Asia and to-date, we have about 6.3 million views. We have created webseries section and plan to create our own original content too.

Perhaps we could work together soon.

Thanks.

Hi everyone! Just wanted to introduce myself as I have been enjoying Stareable’s content for a while now and decided to make an account today. Yay!

Looking forward to getting to know all of you and seeing your work!

Hi Guys,

I wasn’t sure where to post this, and didn’t want to clutter up forum with a new thread for 1 post, so I hope it’s ok to post it here.

I started a new artstation profile that shows some of the things I do with computer grahpics - if anyone could use my help on their projects, feel free to contact me - if you have a profile there follow me and I’ll follow back

Cheers,

~Ricky
