Producer Meg O’Connell takes us through what resources and skills it takes to make online content, and how to think laterally in these times. O’Connell will use ‘Content’ as a case study, taking us through how they made it, how they approached it, how long it took, and how it could be done next time.

In that way, and through a live Q&A, you may glean ways to conceptualise your own project: from questioning what your core values are as a filmmaker to understanding the basics of short-form storytelling, to ensure there’s an audience for your work and a place for it in the landscape.
