What if you could literally turn molehills into mountains? What if you could ask trees to tell their tall tales, without special effects? What if you could put your audience inside someone’s head, inside someone’s womb – all without the most ridiculous CGI budget?
Audio drama gives writers & producers the freedom to develop even the most ambitious ideas into fully-fleshed stories, on the most shoe-string of budgets. All you need are the voices, the sounds, and the silences. But, most importantly, you need to know how to use them.
In this “Audio Drama Writing 101” workshop, you’ll draft & develop your own audio drama script from scratch. You’ll learn about the potential of this intimate, boundless medium; the challenges to overcome, and the advantages to, well, take advantage of. (N.B. We’ll be using these scripts in the following workshop, “DIY Audio Drama”.)
