Choosing to make a web series is a very big subject and as such I have decided to write about it over the span of two articles, so you don’t get bored, and I don’t get lost…

Choosing the best way to present your truly original ideas can be tricky, and deciding on a web series is a completely different approach to a feature or a short film thats for sure.

But, in the world of very independent filmmaking, where the burden of the budget falls mostly upon the filmmakers themselves, it can offer a less pressured and stressful way of affording to make something more than a couple of minutes long.
