'The Vessel' is a 'Peep Show' style comedy webseries, which won first prize at Raindance 2011 and is included in the official selection at LA Webseries Festival. The cast includes actors from Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, The Queen and multi-award winning stand up Shazia Mirza.
The Q&A following the screening will focus on the reasons behind making a webseries or putting your short films online, with insider tips on self-distrbution, monetisation and how to build an audience.
“I saw the pilot of The Vessel at Raindance late last year and for me it ticked all the boxes: a persuasive story line, commanding performances and created with a cheeky style that has ‘Raindance’ all over it.”
