Cool!! What are the three biggest pieces of advice you can give to filmmakers who are just starting out?
Being part of Dub Web Fest could open some new doors for you as filmmaker as we are connected to some great companies. It can be a real boost for your series.
Be yourself because everyone else is taken!!!
Shoot your series the way you want!!! Then craft a good plan online!!!
Don’t forget to eat coz your mind will not be as creative as it should
But how should I promote the fact that I’m in your festival, if I was accepted? What is the best way to use that fact to my advantage, aside from attending? What should I be doing on social media, for example?
What is a “good plan online” exactly?
We’ll make sure that we promote the official selection!!! So you may tag Dub Web Fest online (Twitter, facebook etc)
The online community is quite strong and United we are stronger. I believe that every creator has something special
Nice pictures (Behind the scenes shots) good slogans…
2 posts a week.
A good strategy is also to know your goal.
The festival is for series makers and stories lovers…
Everyone is welcomed !
Only 2 posts a week? On all of your social media, or on EACH social media site? That seems low!
2 posts a week on facebook sorry.
on twitter and insta its a bit different.
How different? (sorry, I’m bad at social media!)
Twitter would be more about reaching prod companies, magazines and following some brands for instance. You may retweet a post from Variety and talk about Cannes Film Festival (using #) for instance. It gives you a great exposure.
Instagram is visual so your pictures and your branding need to be well designed. You may post 1 picture a day for instance
Do you have any recommendations for production companies I should reach out to? I’m in the USA, just so you know But I’d love to come to Dublin sometime!
Well I might be looking at getting a ferry and a hotel then. So just looks at some of the categories and I have a two questions if you could answer any of them. 1. When categorize something as a student series/short does that mean made by people who are students or as part of there course. 2 When accepting scripts for web series do you only want the pilot episode?
Alright folks, that about does it for today’s event! Huge big thanks to @Mikael_Thiery for taking the time to chat with us today! Dublin Webfest is accepting submissions thru September, so get yours in soon!
