Submissions for Labs & Shorties are CURRENTLY OPEN! Submissions will close December 1, 2015 @ 12:00AM.

-------

Since 2009, UCB Comedy has facilitated Digital Teams, which are a combination of filmmakers, writers, and actors who collaborate as a stand-alone production unit to create comedy videos for UCB Comedy. Digital Teams are a balanced creative space, where all members of the team are expected to contribute to the creative voice of the team and the technical means of production.

Starting July 2015, UCB Comedy is excited to launch 2 new initiatives for digital filmmakers in the UCB community--Digital Labs & Digital Shorties.

Digital Labs
A Digital Lab is a short-run team of filmmakers and writers who work together to create 1 season of an original series for UCB Comedy.

A Digital Lab is creatively spearheaded by the SERIES CREATOR(s), who submit an original series idea to UCB Comedy (submission process forthcoming).

In consultation with UCB Comedy Creative Director, Series Creator(s) build out a CREATIVE TEAM which consists of DIRECTOR, PRODUCER, and HEAD WRITER(s). Series Creator(s) will also perform at least one of those roles.

UCB Comedy then sends out a call for pitches to the UCB Community, and Creative Team selects episode pitches from additional WRITERS.

In consultation with UCB Comedy, Creative Team and Writers then work as a writers room for (up to) 2 months, then produce 6 episodes (1 season) of their original series as an independent production unit.

Digital Labs are granted access to the same exclusive resources as Digital Teams (production equipment, insurance, music library, etc). In addition, UCB Comedy will provide post-production services for the series (if needed).

To be eligible to submit as a SERIES CREATOR to for Digital Lab, you must be a current or alumni writer/performer at UCB Theatre, a current UCB Digital Team Member, or an alumni Digital Team/Beta Team member.

Digital Shorties
A Digital Shortie is a one-off digital project (short film, sketch, or short series).

A Digital Shortie is creatively driven by 1-3 CREATOR(s), who submit an original idea or completed script(s) to UCB Comedy (submission process forthcoming).

In consultation with UCB Comedy Creative Director, Creator(s) build out a production crew to help facilitate the technical means of production.

Digital Shorties are granted access to the same exclusive resources as Digital Teams (production equipment, insurance, music library, etc). In addition, UCB Comedy will provide producing and post-production services for the project (if needed).

To be eligible to submit as a CREATOR for Digital Shorties, you must be a current or alumni writer/performer at UCB Theatre, a current UCB Digital Team Member, or an alumni Digital Team/Beta Team member.
