Our team layout’s been scrambled about a little bit, but we’ve gotten our feet on the ground and have a solid demo of our first episode. Firstly, I would like to welcome Paul to the team as a sound editor! He’s laid down the groundwork and re-energized the entire project. Currently, he is working on the rest of the demo, as I type this.
As for our team layout…
We’ve simplified it a little bit and spread out some of the work and consolidated it in other areas, in terms of a vague business metaphor. More concretely, I am back to being the sole hand on scriptwriting, though the rest of the team is helping me with the editing process. I have split sound editing duties between Mark and Paul and have also decided to preemptively cut down episode sizes so we hopefully don’t take an entire summer to put something like this together.
Our cast is still the same— actorsAllusion is our Problem Sleuth, with Nick Smalley running as our Ace Dick.
On top of that, we’re going to release a trailer shortly just to show that, yes, there is actually work on this project and that we aren’t just all moping around in the haze of attrition. Behold our next post! The narration lines and the music are temporary stand-ins for what we are hoping to produce, but we do have our lines recorded.
Finally: Please, please, please, if you want to contribute music to our project, feel free to contribute! We are desperate for material on that front. Please remember that what we want is music fitting the style of film noir.
Edit: I was overzealous— the music in the trailer was actually from Guy Noir, from A Praire Home Companion. Nonetheless, it is a very good example (and everyone should go listen to Guy Noir because it is a great radioplay.)
