Original Web Series, Added By You!
I'm looking for a couple of series creator to interview for a book chapter I'm writing for an academic text book called "Crossmedia Innovations" to be published late 2012.
The proposed chapter will be looking at web series as a maturing form of the web video phenomenon. It will look at web series networks as emerging economic markets with new cross-platform distribution models, as well as being community-building and talent-furthering strategies within an up-and-coming industry. The main focus will be on the potential benefits online TV networks offer for emerging content makers, how they provide alternative and additional platforms to video aggregator sites like YouTube and, in turn, how these networks are pushing the boundaries of emerging genres on emerging platforms.
Please PM me ASAP if you're interested in participating! :)
And, please include a link to your series and some viewership details if you have them, including what networks your show is hosted on.
