The Our Fair City script I wrote for their upcoming West Miniseries was cast and recorded in February. Not sure when the series drops, but oh my goodness can I not wait to hear what audio magic they've wrought! Keep your eyes peeled on their site and their twitter!
Shuffle Quest drops the finale of its third arc this week! We've got TWO one-shot recordings coming up soon, and we'll be diving back into the studio to record new arcs in April. It cannot be overstated how much fun recording with this goofy team is. SQ is on twitter and Discord if you like what we do and want to chat about it.
PleasureTown Season four has been cast and we're on to recording & cutting audio. Listening to our voice actors absolutely kill it with these scripts is such a joy. Keep an eye out for announcements in the coming months.
Speaking of all this great art-creating stuff, here's a really excellent post-mort about writing and editing that my game dev friend Tim pointed me to. The post by game dev writer Laura Michet reflects on the narrative-heaviness of a game (Where the Water Tastes Like Wine--which OMG looks incredible), and how she navigated both the writing & editing process when the project involved twenty-four writers. Anyone who has worked on audio drama, or any kind of collaborative work will bug their eyes out at that number. That's a lot of contributors for a project that needs to feel both seamless in flow and have stories with individual flavor. Michet's review of the work is valuable across the board in all kinds of art-making disciplines, but especially in collaborative writing, so I highly recommend taking a look.
In other news, if you're in Illinois, VOTE THIS TUESDAY! Also, regardless of your location, keep calling your members of congress, keep calling congressional committees and your local representatives. Be loud, be persistent, take no shit, and be good to yourselves. Use 5calls.org if you need numbers and scripts.
