Dirk Spielberg

Posted By on August 4, 2017

I think I’ve been saying this for some years now, and most recently in the Bill Hollweg Retrospective but Dirk Maggs is to the audio drama medium as Steven Spielberg is to movies. Master of the Film Source of the modern audio drama movement, Mr. Maggs has been working tirelessly producing action adventure audio for many years now.

So naturally Audible Range asked the question Who is this Dirk Maggs and why does he rule so hard? Because one of the wonderful things about Audio Drama is it keeps getting rediscovered again and again!

Dirk speaks about his experiences with audio drama and his new X-Files release. Check out the interview, and if you want to hear the man himself as he abides, check out our interview Maggsnifiscent Audio.

Shepard Tones

Posted By on August 3, 2017

Just watched Dunkirk with my colleague and I was interested in how this tension was developed through the ticking clock. According to nofilmschool this is all about a Shepard Tone.

Do you use Shepard Tones in your audio drama? Maybe it’s time to start ratcheting up the tension!
