Web producers Diahnna Nicole Baxter and Damian Pelliccione know all about the unique creative, technical, and legal snags that can come with producing web content. Baxter cocreated the interactive sci-fi thriller series _Satacracy 88_—the first winner in the Emmys’ Outstanding Broadband Program – Drama category—and Pelliccione has more than 15 web series under his belt. The duo started WebTVWorkshop to share their triumphs and setbacks with aspiring web actors, writers, directors, and producers. During daylong seminars, along with guest speakers, they touch on topics such as pitches, contracts, product placement, crowd funding, and how to get the actors to fit inside the smaller screens.
