Can you HEAR me Now?
Okay, bad joke. But no bad audio drama here!
Tonight is another evening of new stories as heard at the HEAR Now Audio Festival. Last week we had the first half of “A Prophet’s Guide” from Aural Stage Studios, and we will bring you the exciting and baffling conclusion to that story in the second half of our show. To start things, we have another new production which won the Mark Time Gold Award for Fantasy – the six-part series “Alba Salix: Royal Physician“. Alba is the first ongoing series of the production group Forgery League, which is currently in production of a Season Two as well as a spinoff series of shorter episodes entitled The Axe And Crown. This show, we have a taste of the “Alba Salix” series, first with a trailer to give you a little background, then Episode 2 entitled “Birds and Beasts”. After that, it’s the continuation of “A Prophet’s Guide“, where Karl has lost his Muffin Girl and his three prophet guides are trying to figure out how to get this less-than-perfect hero out of his drunken stupor.
Also, last week we gave you a heads-up about some audio drama crowdfunding projects, and we wanted to let you know about another one with big things on the horizon. RadioStatic is the production group that brought us “The Minister of Chance” which you may have heard on MAT in the past. They have been trying to turn this audio drama into a full movie for several years now, and right now they’re running a crowdfunding campaign to do so. The goal for Stage 2 of their funder is August 10th, and can they definitely use your love and support. Find out about their campaign at radiostatic.co.uk.
