In the doldrums of winter, it’s time for a little Spring Fling or rather Spring Fever! Part one is here fromSandbox Radio Live. Where are you in NADSWRIM? Jack and David chat up the benefits and challenges of writing mystery fiction and it all begins here on the Sonic Society.
Hey everybody. When I produced series one and two of Elite: Escape Velocity I was overwhelmed by your reception to the series. Not just as a faithful fan adaptation of a game world you all loved as much as I did, but to the characters, stories, performers and music that made it such a success. Nearly every week I get messages asking for Escape Velocity to come back. And I really want to be able to make it for you and continue the story we all started together.
That’s where you come in. However much you can pledge provides funds to get the series made. Whether you want to contribute $1 and be a part of things, or pledge $8 per episode and join in with private post-show discussions, I appreciate each and every donation that helps get this show on the air. It’s not going to be exclusive – Escape Velocity will still be released as a free podcast. But every supporter at $4 and above will have access to a download of a high bitrate version of the show. (The podcast is released as 128kbps mp3, while the private downloads are 320kbps).
As we continue in the NADSWRIM challenge for the year of Audio Scripts, we at the Society would like to highlight some projects that are worth supporting. As we move into getting more folks into experiencing the wonder of the Audio World, consider The Keep Official Audio Drama from the novel by F. Paul Wilson.
What is The Keep?
In 1981 author F Paul Wilson released his novel The Keep. The Keep tells the story of a platoon of German soldiers during WWII occupying a small fortress in the Romanian mountains. Unknown to them, they have released an ancient evil from deep within its walls, the only few who may be able to solve the mystery and stop the slaughter of the soldiers are a crippled Jewish professor, his daughter and a mysterious stranger.
Now go out there and help get another great project off the ground!
So many great stars old and new keep coming back to Audio Drama. Now it’s the War Doctor himself, John Hurt, has a plea for many people out there. About radio drama, Mr. Hurt says:
“I consider it a very important part of my life. I think one of the major weapons of an actor is the voice. And I think [radio] is a forgotten art. And it’s just wonderful to be someone who is celebrating that particular art.”
But the audio itch is hard not to scratch, and now talkie podcaster is added to his impressive credentials as Rob and long time best friend Don Chisholm host the new series The Department of Nerdly Affairs (aka The DNA).
Of course, we were instant fans, and most recently, Jack was invited to partake of the glorious geekery. Obey the DNA yourself and subscribe.
