A local college is recording one of my audiodramas on 6/5/10 (rehearsal) and 6/12/10 (recording session). We need actors from 8am - noon on both days. If you'd like to participate but can't do that schedule, let me know what avialability you *do* have on Saturday.
So it turns out the Art Institute of Austin teaches a class in 'long-form radio', AKA audiodrama. I got in touch with the instructor via a friend of a friend (ah, it's all who you know), and now the instructor is making one of my scripts his students' class project. They will be producing the first three episodes of Bellydancing Ninjas, which you can read here. (There are tentative plans to produce the remaining three episodes next quarter -- w00t!)
I'm going to meet with the class this Saturday to talk about possible sound and music cues, and discuss my vision for the piece. Then next Saturday, the class will rehearse with the actors. Then on the Saturday after that, the class will record the actors. They'll spend another couple of weeks editing everything together, and ta-da! we get a nicely-produced collection of episodes.
And now, the bad news: the class is from 8am to noon, and it's a bit north. So: if you can do that schedule, let me know. If you can't do that schedule, let me know what other availability you have for those Saturdays. It may be that we can get all the students there for some other block of time, and bring y'all in then. I'll talk to the instructor about it this weekend.
