Getting Work in Entertainment Question 926: How do I create my own web series if I don't have money?

I don't know if you're asking me me because you see that I'm doing a free teleseminar on creating webseries and marketing yourself with a video blog. If you want a detailed answer to this question, register for the free teleseminar on Wed, Sept 14th 5pm PST HERE 

The short answer is Collaboration! I happen to know that the person who asked this question is an actress.

Because she's an actress with an idea, to create a web series, the bare minimum she needs is:

1. a writer(s)
2. a director
3. a producer
4. a camera person
5. an editor

On many web series, 2 people can be all 5 of those. She also needs equipment for camera, sound, and editing.

With no money, she'll be looking to collaborate with people who want to build their credits and skills/experience, believe in the idea, and want to create relationships with others working on the project. They will volunteer their time, equipment, and resources.

The little details of creating a project like this, that I'm not going into, will be discovered when you begin collaborating. You will probably need some money (for batteries, lunch, etc.).

BE SURE to have non-disclosure agreements when discussing your project as well as contracts for all involved. EVEN IF YOU'RE WORKING WITH YOUR BEST FRIENDS!!! You can even download these for free on the internet and make them fit your needs. Protect your project! If you want to make everyone equal partners in it, fine. Just put it in writing!

If you have no idea how to find people to collaborate with, a great start would be my free call, so click above to register.

I look forward to hearing from you again.
