While my main focus remains on writing for film, I have been thinking for a while about writing for online productions. It had been in the back of my mind for a while (I even have considered turning Hell on Wheels into a flash-animated web series), and thought more about it after attending this seminar. And recently I've spoken to a number of people about such things as web series and Alternate Reality Games (ARGs).
I'd be a fool if I didn't see these forms as at least part of the future of visual storytelling, and at the same time, not entirely different from what I do currently. And so I'm considering trying to do some writing in that arena as well.
So, for those of you who are already quite familiar with such things, I'd love to hear your thoughts on writing for the digital, online world. What is the same or different? And if you have any favorite web series (as opposed to a single, stand-alone viral video that you love) or ARGs, I'd love to hear about them. What's the best out there?
Leave your thoughts in the comments section, please!
Update: A few hours after I posted this, I read THIS POST on Kira's blog. Thought it tied in nicely!
