Is there a market for "just" comedy anymore?

(Ghetto Nerd Girl) #22

Not sure who the funders you’re talking to are, but comedy is the best and most popular genre IMO. My web series is a dramedy which is heavier on the drama side and I’m constantly trying to figure out how to make it funnier. It’s easier to get viewers to take a chance on comedy as opposed to another genre. Just my 2 cents.

I want to see this. Where can I see this?

You can check out The Projectionist Project here:

The first few episodes are me basically copying the style of other review series. Paranormal Activity 3 is the first episode that’s more in tone with what I would wind up doing. And Jack and Jill is where I really start to carry things over from one review to the next, building my weird movie-influenced universe. There’s also a sampler that combines a few of the episodes for like a little mini-movie deal.

It’s also on Stareable!

I’d love to know what you think!

This is actually my Patreon post tomorrow for #femalefilmmakerfriday. But briefly…

I’m not sure if there’s a solution; digital series (short form) aren’t profitable and haven’t really been. It’s always been the goal to segue into TV / traditional models. I think of digital stuff as a way to get in front of noses, not get views. That means it doesn’t matter quite so much the platform, as long as the right people see it.

I expand more here, up tomorrow morning:
