Hey y’all! I’m a longtime “let the notifications pile up”-er, now first-time poster.

Here’s what I’m up to in December (I hope it’s OK that I share goals that aren’t web series related, because I’m taking a break from my own series for a bit):

  • Raise $15K for the first leg of my next feature documentary.
  • Build a road map, recruit a business development lead, and set Q1 goals for a new podcast/network that I’m aiming to launch in summer 2018.
  • Bounce my general strategy for how to keep my web series audience growing in 2018, while producing next to no new content, off of some more experienced folks (namely, people who have a lot of experience with YouTube audience development), so I feel good about how much effort I’ll put into it in the new year.

Welcome James!! And best of luck!


(Meg Carroway) #26
  • Write a new script (any length!) :white_check_mark:
  • Pitch packet for short film that I didn’t do last month :x:
  • Work on my screenplay (also last month’s failure) :x:
  • Help my friend design some promotional materials for her short film using all the branding advice I’ve gotten from this forum :white_check_mark:

Halfway there! (woah woah, living on a prayer!)


(Bri Castellini) #27

Congrats!


(Bri Castellini) #28
  • ACTUALLY start releasing Sam and Pat! I sent off the files to SeekaTV last night so this should happen! :white_check_mark: Watch the first two episodes here!
  • Start pre-production for the two shows I crowdfunded for last month and finalize budget considerations (Stray w/ @Pablo and The Mother Lode) :red_circle: (I have meetings for both this week)
  • Finish pre-production for a short film I hope to shoot in January (“Buy In”) :red_circle: (shot list meeting this week but after that I’m done!)
  • Start pre-production for another short film I want to do next year (“Dead On Arrival”) :white_check_mark: (I love starting pre-production during the holidays because it means I can ask for props and costumes for Christmas and use that to alleviate my budget!)
  • Get 20 unique posts on this thread (l’m assuming it’ll be a slow month but if you blow past this perhaps I’ll do something special :slight_smile: ) :red_circle: SO CLOSE. 2 people away! @JimiJimi? @Huxiley? @Pia_0.0?

How’s everyone doing?? I’m basically done with mine and COULD NOT BE MORE HYPED FOR A BREAK!


(Ghetto Nerd Girl) #39

Wow! I’m impressed with what people accomplished this month. I must admit I lost track of my goals this month being that it starts off as my birthday month (Dec 1) then tapers off as holiday break month. Slowly but surely I’m getting back into the groove of things. I haven’t gotten as lost as I was this time last year because of Stareable and for that I’m grateful. Keep up the good work everyone! <3
