Lessons From SeriesFest: Make It Your Way

July 21, 2016

"With this, I cared more about keeping creative control."

As part of the launch of our New Voice Crowdfunding Rally, we went to SeriesFest to talk to the biggest and brights stars of this year's hottest original series.

In this first video, the team behind the series DOOMSDAY (creator Sonja O'Hara and lead actor Donald Paul) talk about what it took to make their series and what they did to maintain creative control over their production.


If you have a series up your sleeve and could use some help getting it off the ground, join our New Voice Crowdfunding Rally! Submissions are open NOW through September 1, 2016. Prizes include $30k in finishing funds from Mastercard, TV development from Band of Outsiders, a premiere at SeriesFest 2017, an additional 'Straight to Screen' prize from Fullscreen, a Filmmaker Gift Box from Seed&Spark worth over $8k, and more.
