Name: Alex (Alexandra) G-Smith
Location: North Hollywood, CA
Web series made (if any): "The Shoaks"
Preferred film roles (writer, producer, director, actor, etc): Prefer Acting, Writing, then Producing in that order haha
The film thing you’re best at: Acting & Writing, and extremely organized
The film thing you’re worst at: Patience
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!
Right now you actually can’t link them, but we’re working on it! They’re technically separate websites at this point.
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.
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?
10 Things You Can Do For 10 Minutes To Promote Your Web Series
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 ️
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.

I’m worst at: putting myself OUT THERE! I hired a life coach and am now boldly getting out of my comfort zone. I have written close to 25 episodes and will begin crowdfunding next month! We’ve applied to some film festivals and have gotten into one so far! (New York No Limits)
It’s nice to “meet” all of you!!

I’ve been a community member for awhile now but I don’t think I’ve ever posted in this thread.

Let’s chat and collab! Thanks for having me.
I’m Michele Austin Rodriguez, a Texas native currently based in Brooklyn.
In addition to a documentary I’ve been working on since I was 13 that I’m beginning to re-work, I’m part of Undead Burrito Productions (moderator @Bri_Castellini 's core team). I’ve worked on three of their projects: Brains (executive producer- season 2; director- season 2, episode 3), Ace and Anxious (2nd AD), and Sam and Pat are Depressed (AD- season 1; Associate Producer- season 2).
I love to direct, but I’ve also enjoyed being a producer and AD (I have a background in theatre as a stage manager, and being an AD is closest to being a stage manager on a film set)
I’m pretty good at delegating/leading a team and keeping things on track.
I’m less good at self-promotion. it’s getting easier as I develop a body of work I’m super proud of, but it still makes me feel icky sometimes.

I’ve previously created/produced/performed 3 theatre shows. The web series is a new venture and challenge. It’s a one-woman satirical drama which I’m creating and filming entirely on my own! Partly vlog-style and partly mockumentary interview.
I look forward to meeting other creators on here and discovering similar web series.
