Web-TV Series Track
We are not currently accepting applications for this track. Below is an overview of the first iteration of the Web/TV Series Track and is subject to change for future entries. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for updates.
The David Lynch MFA in Film program now offers a unique focus with the Web-TV Series Track.
In Semester 1, under the guidance of veteran Hollywood producer Bill Borden and working directly with a seasoned writer/showrunner instructor, students collaboratively create the series “bible” and then team up to write individual episodes. Guest lecturers present seminars in various aspects of the writing and production process throughout the semester.
In Semester 2, the class produces the series they have written with ongoing guidance from professional mentors, with each student directing and editing at least one episode of the series.
Semester 3 focuses on the post-production and distribution processes, with students learning to move each episode through final post-production. Once complete, the entire series is presented online. Additional screenings for industry professionals take place in Los Angeles.
