In this episode of Melbourne WebFest: From The Archives, we take a listen to the keynote address of the 2018 festival, which was delivered by Julie Kalceff. Julie shares with us the four reasons why she believes the web series format is awesome – whilst drawing parallels with her own personal journey to find her voice and establish her creative drive.
Julie Kalceff is an award-winning writer, director and producer, well known for creating pioneer web series drama Starting From Now, which clocked over 130 million views in over 200 countries. In 2020 she released her new series First Day on ABC iview, making it the first scripted Australian show to feature a transgender actor as its protagonist.
