FROM RIO WEBFEST,
By Kithi / November 18, 2019
Cidade das Artes, in Rio de Janeiro, is the stage for the meeting of series creators. In all directions are the cameras / camcorders, cell phones, tripods, computers ... besides the panels, the keynotes, the round tables ... a joy invades the hearts, we are all creators, this is the water of fountain of youth that strolls through the biggest international series festival: Rio Webfest.
The history of the festival began with the comedy 'Opposite of Sex', a success that won the world and brought the world of series to Brazil.
After going to many international festivals, the writer, director and editor of the series Leandro Corr ê a, uneasy about not having something similar in Brazil, decided to convince the actor Daniel Archangelo to invest in the purpose. The result: a space where series creators bring together the youthful lightness of the youth, a place where the possibilities of “inventing” history is the narrative that unites everyone in the same community.
Beyond a festival with awards, Rio WebFest is a place of unity. For Leandro, “the guy who had the idea”, the community spirit among the participants is mediated by Daniel, partner and director of the festival.
“Daniel has this magic of being able to see something good when the situation is bad. And he transmits this to the creators ”, says Leandro.
See in the video below how Daniel manages to gather people around the series:
The exchange of knowledge amplifies the possibilities of paths to follow. The approach with the players in the business rounds allows the participating series to gain new windows to be seen, to gain supporters. A differential that generates the energy of the dream, the possibility of realizing and doing "for real". To enter the market.
For Victor Soares, creator of the series The Twins, along with Ingrid Ohara, with more than 1,200,000 views, the festival is the place where “it is possible to meet creators from all over the world. Some who do it in the race, some on a budget, some with great visibility, others did not have that visibility, but it is really cool to see how the web is enabling the creation of content the way you want to do it ”
