YOU MADE A DOPE WEB SERIES. NOW WHAT?
It's easier than ever to distribute your show, but building an audience remains a challenge. We believe that your success should be based on the dopeness of your show, not luck or the size of your marketing budget.
Stareable celebrates and empowers you to amplify your online presence and grow your web series audience for free.
WE PUT WEB SERIES ON A PEDESTAL
The internet is full of platforms to host and distribute video. But all of them lump web series in with funny cat videos, hate speech diatribes, and random clips from SNL.
We only do web series.
WE HELP YOU GROW YOUR AUDIENCE
It's a crying shame when an amazing show ends too early because it didn't find its audience (RIP Firefly, Party Down, and Freaks and Geeks). Stareable helps you get discovered by thousands of web series creators and fans.
- Embed your episodes directly on the site
- Credit the cast & crew that made your show amazing
- Get rated by fans
- Have audiences save your show to watch later
- Use your creator dashboard to analyze and improve your show's discoverability
- Add show subscribers and notify them directly when you have news (new episodes, fundrasing announcements, festival awards)
Take back ownership over your audience.
So you're not beholden to some faceless algorithm.
Suggestions for what we should build? We'd love to hear from you.
WE EMPOWER AND SUPPORT THE COMMUNITY
Stareable's goal is to build a community by supporting and empowering web series creators. Because when you win, we win.
Ever cook a recipe, make mistake, and then realize that in the comments section, someone else had the same issue and figured out how to work around it? This is like that, but for making awesome web series.
Check out our community forum to learn from thousands of other web series creators with hard-won knowledge about what works when you're creating a show.
Come to one of our regular Stareable IRLs—meetups for web series creators taking place monthly in cities around the world—so you can meet your peers and commiserate over drinks about the struggle to create. (Oh, and we buy the first round!)
If an event doesn't already exist in your area, you should host it yourself!
FORGET THE BOX PODCAST
Our Community Director, Bri Castellini, loves the sound of her own voice. We put that to good use on our podcast, Forget the Box, where she interviews web series creators and industry experts for actionable advice on making, marketing and monetizing your show.
Stareable Fest is our 3-day long party celebrating excellence in web series. It's half industry marketplace, connecting filmmakers and decision makers at major platforms, and half creator convention, with workshops and panels about how to be a more effective filmmaker.
WE GET PEOPLE EXCITED ABOUT THE FUTURE OF WEB SERIES
I'm inspired by how Stareable continues to find new ways to support and nurture the next generation of indie storytellers. I look forward to supporting their movement in building their community on both their platform and their festival.
