IXA – first vertical Basque web series format / Interview with the author and director Egoitz Diaz Ibargoitia
IXA is the first Basque web series to be created exclusively vertically, meaning it is meant to be watched on your phone. In order to create a new way of promoting audio-visual consumption in Basque, especially among younger people, the series was recorded entirely in Basque. The series addresses different themes, with each episode always following a common thread – Time. IXA includes six independent episodes which explore the use of time and the way we see it. Each episode tells a story of an individual in an everyday situation, culminating in a dramatic climax. The first season consists of six chapters, each lasting no more than 10 minutes and taking place in different “non-places.”
