The first ever TO Web Fest was held in May and a ground-breaking report was released: Industry Profile of the Independent Web Series Creators of Ontario. But making a living from web series is still tough. Join some of the WGC’s leading independent web series creators as they tackle the new developments in monetization, particularly the innovative crowdfunding ideas and the growing role of broadcasters.”

Fan-Expo-CanadaSo come by and listen to him insert references to sex in a conversation about money. He’ll do it. Friday, August 29th at 3:45pm in Room 715.
