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?

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! https://www.stareable.com/series/view/the-projectionist-project
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.
