web series, I was inspired to write The Miseducation of a First Generation College Student. This story navigates the world of the title character, Lavor, as he struggles but finds unconventional ways to pay rent off campus.
What's a Web Series?
Now many of you are "living under a rock", or at worst in front of a television. So, how do we define web series? A web series is expedited storytelling for the new mind. And whereas many creators are looking to catch the eyes of TV execs with their tightly written addictive stories, they are really creating an innovative way to consume serials that might take-over.
Will television become extinct? I don't think so. It'll stick around with libraries! Nonetheless everyone's got their main source of entertainment in-hand.
Watch All You Want
Yes networks are keeping up with our web-driven world by offering online viewing; but it isn't only the platform creators use that makes web series so popular, it's their length. And producers know just how to hook their audience by sometimes uploading three or more episodes at once to encourage binge watching.
If you are familiar with my work, you know I write about the dark stuff. At twenty-seven, I've spent a great deal of my artistic life exploring the emotions we often mask. I wanted the web series to be different. I wanted it to be fun for everyone involved.
So you can expect to laugh at this dramedy. We are currently shooting at Studio 15 Productions. This loosely autobiographical series is scheduled to premiere this fall on a device you're probably holding.
