OVERVIEW: Learn how to develop and pitch your idea into a web series that will get made and get seen. If you’ve been waiting around for the right project to come along that matches your creative talent and vision, the digital world gives you the opportunity to “build your own door and walk through it.” Mark covers everything from defining your idea into something that will work for the web, to building the foundations of your pitch package for funding and fans, and finally gets into the nitty gritty of executing your pitch strategy so that you can accomplish the project that you set out to make. A nice introduction into the world of web series, and how to make something that truly shows what you are capable of creating.
Probably one of the most awesome days I've had in a long time. Went to the Mark Gantt workshop and feel totally rejuvenated.
Fantastic and inspiring workshop led by Mark Gantt of web hit "The Bannen Way." This seminar rocked!!!!Highly recommend getting the DVD of this seminar when it comes out. He lays out how they did it and much more. Really valuable - Thanks Mark for making this so affordable and practical. You walk the talk.
Wow. Thanks for the inspiring, overwhelming, fabulous seminar yesterday...ahhhh...so much to do...start with write down what I want to do...no, really, do it...
Just wanted to thank you for having your "create your own career" seminar. It was a tremendous help & after asking for help (I think you mentioned that) I've already had a meeting about my project. Great stuff and great give on your part. You really fucking inspire me. Thanks man!
Industry Leaders Speak
Mark has that rare quality of being able to lead and inspire a crew while balancing many hats including, writing, executive producing and starring in a large production.
Mark Gantt is an example of not waiting for someone to tell you it is O.K. to do something. He believed in their vision and found a way to execute brilliantly.
While our network did not pick up the show, we continue to applaud how Mark and team raised the bar in terms of production values, talent and distribution in the nascent digital arena from the first pitch to the finished product.
Mark didn’t sit back waiting for something to happen for him. He took the initiative, developed his own vehicle, and was very creative in figuring out how to get it financed, marketed and distributed.
