Web series are an extremely popular form of production today. However, everyone tells me that making money with them is almost impossible…but that may change in the near future.

“I have a web series idea…thinking about just shooting on the weekends, while I work to save money. Is there a way to make money with a web series?”
Brandy great question, I’ve talked with many of my filmmaker friends in LA that are producing a web series. They are an extremely popular form of production today. However, they all tell me that making money with them is almost impossible.
However, I recently teamed up and started consulting for a start up company that is going to be monetizing web series programs. They did a soft launch and will be in full gear later this year. Their plan is to attach at the beginning or the end of your production short commercials from advertisers that closely match your genre. Right now their app is on all the new smart TVs.
I think that a company like this will revolutionize the web series and give producers income to keep producing their projects.
Contact me in a month or two and I will have a better handle on where they are. We have signed a deal to put our upcoming web series on their network as well. I can give you more information soon.
Thanks for the question, Brandi!
