It has almost become expected in modern audio drama production circles that you need to do everything when it comes to putting a show together. Writing a good story as a script that works in audio is a huge challenge in itself, to then have that story recorded and mix it together and make it sound great is another challenge altogether.
So are you trying to master two arts; writing and audio production? Do you want to master two arts? Do you feel you neglect one, don’t have as much time for one, or even as much passion for one? In that case, should you not just focus on the role you want to play in making audio drama stories? In this episode we pose these questions, and offer our own feelings on the subject.
We’ve reached a milestone 50th episode, and we’d like to thank you for listening by setting a ‘pay what you want’ price tag on our eBook How to Create Audio Drama on Smashwords until 1st July 2015. You can have the book absolutely free if you like, or if you can spare a few pounds or dollars, trow some our way to help us fund the next 50 episodes!
We also have two books to give away, Sound Design, and The Art of Voice Acting. To qualify, simply sign up to our email list, and we’ll select two people from there at random on the 1st July to receive these copies.
We Want Your Feedback
The show is just about a year old now. We hope you’ve enjoyed listening and have taken value from the content we’ve been putting out. There’s always room for improvement though, so going into our second year we’d be hugely grateful if you could take a fe minutes to fill out this survey. You can tell us what you’ve liked, what you haven’t liked, subjects or interviewees you’d like to hear on future shows, and anything else really. You’ll be doing us a big favour and helping us create a better listening experience for you, and for everyone else who subscribes to the show.
Voice Actor Home Recording Setup
We mentioned in the show that we’ve got a couple of articles on the site based around recording voices as part of a remote/satellite cast. These are ‘How to reduce reverb if you don’t have a vocal booth’ and ‘Our recommended home recording setup for voice actors’.
We talk about Apple Radio, Matthew’s interview on the New Media Europe Show, A Writers Life Podcast, Burning Brigid Media, The Once & Future Nerd, Hadron Gospel Hour, and Robert chats with radio drama lecturer Jay Sykes about the BBC commissioning rounds, and the future of the medium.
