With the digital space exploding like never before, one could see everyone plunging into the space of web series. Everyone is either watching or making web series. With sophisticated phones with brilliant cameras installed on them available easily in the market, trust me we all can become James Cameron.
With so many OTT platforms floating on the Google play store, we can be well assured that there are hundreds of web series being launched every day. So, what’s different in the web series that set you apart from the rest?
Well, in my Web Series Free Ticket, there’s this character Prem Kapoor, who’s a reputed Filmmaker. He has launched a web series titled Free Ticket. But there’s a catch. What set this web series apart from the rest is that the audience can earn lakhs of money just by watching the series.
It’s a suspense web series. In the first episode itself, a girl named ‘Akira’ is murdered. Whoever can guess the end, will win a cash prize of Rs 10 lakhs.
In today's time anyone with an Internet connection and access to Youtube, is a filmmaker, a reporter, a professor, a media influencer and whatnot. People have earned lakhs of money by uploading their videos on YouTube. Anyone who can catch your attention is a star. One such star is Kaamini who has become an Internet sensation through her YouTube videos. Cheap or intelligent videos who really care as long as they are entertaining.
Films are an expensive medium. It takes time and money to make them. Only a first-time struggler filmmaker can tell you what went into making his first film/web series. He fears many things, one such thing has been shown in my first web series Free Ticket.
