Tulpa

So Tulpa hit the airwaves on Halloween Night WKNO 91.1’s “NPR for the mid-South” along with a large group of other stellar audio drama shows that were produced by the endlessly talented actors at Chatterbox Audio, directed and produced by artist’s gift to radio drama- Bob Arnold. I’ve always loved Chatterbox’s productions; love that they do such high quality; and love …

The Midnight Avenger Strikes Again!

I have a secret to tell. It’s not a very well kept secret if you’ve listened to the Sonic Society, but it’s a secret from the wider world nevertheless- I love pulp. I’m a fan of the simplistic good guy/bad guy, high adventure, low depth characters of the age of the pulp magazines. Some of the work that was considered pulp …

Gilded Gate

  It was 2008 and I was just finishing watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer under request of my girlfriend. I had grown to love Joss Whedon from his aborted Firefly series and had appreciated his script doctoring in a number of other works. But Buffy frustrated me. It was his first smash breakout success and still it stymied me. I …

I was in the middle of …

Zombies on a Boat!

What do you get when you take Mel Smith’s dark visions of a zombie apocalypse and Alex Nino’s spine tingling artistry? Why the brutal and stark  thriller Dead Ahead of course! This awesomely gruesome graphic novel became my great summer project to complete as an Audio Drama for Colonial Radio Theatre. Taking a visual medium like a comic and turning …

Summer Writing and Research

  A lot of people get the wrong idea about teachers… They seem to think that because the students are released from classes, teachers spend their summers in repose and relaxing. I’m not going to say that I haven’t enjoyed some less hectic hours at the seashore or taking my family camping, but I know most teachers like myself take …

Chattering Horror

My good friends at Chatterbox Audio Theater have an exciting new Halloween planned for listeners. They’ve started their search for some great horror stories in their 2014 Halloween Show Script Competition. There’s a couple of different size recommendations and requirements and the dead line is August 15th. I made a couple of mistakes in my own submission but I was …

Writing Audio Drama

Recently, I had been looking through the archives at Audio Drama Talk and discovered that our own little article on creating Audio Drama was now long gone from the view. Instead of reposting it on the Sonic Society, I’ve moved it here for folks to take a gander. Note that below this article are a ton of other great references …
