IGNITE featuring Seed&Spark’s Bri Castellini

Film Community Manager, Seed&Spark

12:30 pm – 1:50 pm
Megan Elliott, (402) 472-2615,
The Distribution Down Low for Shorts and Web Series

So you’ve made a short film or web series, and now you want to share it with the world (or a more specific audience than that)! But what comes next?

Seed&Spark’s Bri Castellini will break down the current landscape of distribution for independent short films and web series, including the economics of different avenues to take, the right questions to ask potential partners, and other information to arm yourself with as you enter negotiations.

Make sure to RSVP to receive the livestream link, as well as our follow-up email with our workshop deck, plus additional educational resources!

Bri Castellini is the Film Community Manager for Seed&Spark, a graduate-level adjunct professor for digital media, an independent filmmaker, and, regrettably, a podcaster. She’s known for the 2017 short film Ace and Anxious (writer/director, 147k views on YouTube) and for her podcasts Burn, Noticed and Breaking Out of Breaking in, covering the USA television show Burn Notice and practical filmmaking advice, respectively. She has been described by collaborators as a “human bulldozer” and is honestly kind of flattered. For more on Bri visit

The Johnny Carson Center for Emerging Media Arts and Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film have partnered with Seed&Spark, a crowdfunding platform that delivers education, tools and resources that create access for all storytellers to get their work made and seen. Seed&Spark is the only crowdfunding platform created for filmmakers, by filmmakers. It is the only platform dedicated to increasing diversity and inclusion in entertainment at every level.
