READ: BUILD Series Comes To Australia!
Words by: Guy Webster
It’s around the second hour that I rise out my mid-binge reverie and take stock of my surroundings. Where am I? What day is it? And when does the next episode start?
Sure, this might seem like the usual formula for a Friday night-in with the clinical glow of an ‘Are you still watching’ Netflix (or Stan or Hulu or Amazon or etc. etc.) moment, but this binge comes from something else, something…new.
I’m talking about the BUILD Series, a live and interactive broadcast that showcases the industry’s best. The premise of this series is relatively simple: take your favourite celebs, entrepreneurs and personalities, put them in an informal setting in front of you and other awesome fans and watch the kernels of wisdom and hilarious stories just roll out. With studios in New York and London, this series has delivered some incredible moments with some incredible celebs - Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Bill Hader, Naomi Watts, the Veronicas to name a few – and now they’re coming to Sydney. Bringing their unique brand of digital programming to an aesthetic studio in Sydney’s Inner West, this series is an up and coming addition to Sydney’s flailing nightlife. Plus, each 35-minute episode streams on all associated platforms of BUILD, making each banter-filled moment easily accessible.
Already, the series has kicked off with insightful convos with some Aussies who are absolutely killing it, including Angus Stone, the Veronicas and Dean Lewis. And with more interactive episodes to come, it’s time to get on it; it won’t be long until this series blows up. With Senior Producer, Emma Metcalf at the helm and Verizon Media (the guys behind Tumblr, Yahoo! and Huffpost) you can expect this series to start flooding your social media and your Friday night plans. Plus, each interview features the comfiest couches known to man, that’s just a fact.
