Birth of An Audio Drama 013: Recorded Lines

So now that I've written my script, selected voice artists, and had a read-through with the cast,  it's time to sit and wait.  Most of the shows I produce involve remote artists so this is when I eagerly watch for files to come in.  I usually set up a...

Birth of An Audio Drama 012: Read-through

As I was recently on the subject of recording I felt it was probably appropriate to say a few things about read-throughs.  Whether the production involved remote artists, local artists, or a mix of both, the read-through is a must.  I typically hold mine...

Need Character Names? Ask Scrivener

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Scrivener.  I use it for novels, short stories, audio scripts, screenplays, stage plays, etc.  I'm pretty sure I started using Scrivener right after it was first released in 2007 and, if asked, considered myself an...

We Were A Featured Segment!

One of the things I love about Audio Drama is the people I get to work with and who breathe life into a show.  I was thrilled when NH Chronicle (a New Hampshire news television series) visited my home to spotlight the work being done to bring this medium...

Birth of An Audio Drama 008: Drafts

If you know me and my work I tend to write short mini-series.  The episodes are short by design.  If all are added together they will typically run about the length of a standard movie (90-120 minutes).  The Behemoth runs for almost 3 hours.  I like to...
