[Craft Series] Writing for Digital Platforms

Chelsea O'Connor
Writer and Producer

The entertainment landscape has changed a lot over the last few years, but probably the biggest shift has been with the rise of digital platforms (YouTube, Hooked, etc) and the content designed for them. We've seen these shows develop in production value and capture an audience all their own.

But have you ever wondered what goes in to writing and producing one of these shows? What are the parameters and elements you would need to keep in mind when developing ideas for these platforms? And how does the process work to make one of these shows? 

Roadmap Writers welcomes Chelsea O'Connor to give us a look behind the curtain into this world! 

This 90 Minute Webinar Will Cover: 

  • Writing for a client 
  • Pitching and developing 
  • Drafting the episodes (with an eye towards budget) 
  • Live Q&A
