IFNYC#27: Stareable Founder Ajay Kishore
Today I’m speaking with the Ajay Kishore, the founder of Stareable. As an avid connoisseur of episodic content, Ajay realises that it is increasingly difficult to find all the great content out there in the increasingly fragmented space of the internet. He is changing that by centralizing webseries content on Starable.

Finding the Television that Best Speaks to You
Webseries are a fun form of filmmaking. I’ve seen everything from buddy comedies to horror to fantasy to sci-fi. Some web series are defacto film schools for filmmakers. Producing a series allows them to hone their technical skills, improve their writing style and develop their voice. Still others set out to produce short episodic content with production value and a level of screenwriting.
Stareable’s focus on webseries is a direct result of Ajay’s passion for episodic content. Stareable is part VOD platform, part curation, and a resource for makers of episodic web content to expand their audience and grow as filmmakers.
Stare Your Content
So, If you’ve got episodic web content that you are looking to get out into the world and grow an audience for, listen to what Ajay has to say about Stareable. If you like what he has to say, shoot him an email about your webseries and become part of this growing and evolving platform.

Be a Part of John Fallon’s Indie Film NYC Podcast
One of my favorite aspects of this podcast is the people who reach out to me to let me know that a particular episode was enjoyable, or how hearing advice from a filmmaker I’ve featured helped them complete their project, or as was the case with Brad, to tell me about a project that they are excited to put out in the world. Hearing the filmmakers talk about how they’ve defied the odds and gotten a film completed and wanting to share their art through the Indie Film NYC Podcast is so much fun for me. To reach me, go to indiefilmnyc.com/contact or hit me up on twitter at our user name @indiefilmnyc
I would encourage anyone to reach out to me if they want to share their story on the podcast. So, if that’s a specific film, a web series or a full body of work over that spans your career thus far, my aim is to bring these stories to my listeners in the hopes that it will inspire, teach and provide useful advice so they can also get their projects completed.
