hi all! i posted a few months ago about running a writer’s room for my queer spy school web series, recon— it went quite well and as we finish writing, we’re moving into production stages and i’m starting to think both about assembling a crew/cast and distribution. i have a couple questions:
- would you recommend trying to sell your show to a network/YouTube channel, or distribute it yourself? if the latter, how have you marketed?
- would you recommend having one director per episode/multiple directors a season or trying to keep it fairly consistent (i have 2 writer/producers also on board who know the show roughly as well as i do)?
- with casting, what types of scenes do you suggest having actors read?
- with not having to pay crew/actors for the most part, and having pretty decent access to equipment, how would you suggest budgeting/what would your estimated budget be?
