The Fullcast Podcast is an educational podcast about making full cast audio stories. While Abbie has an active (and wonderful!) full length story in The Guild of the Cowry Catchers, Bryan’ full length story needs to be completed and polished before it will be cast and produced. The 1st draft is almost done (28 of about 32 chapters are finished) after which edits will begin. We’ll talk about this process on the show, I’m sure.
The reason for this post is to proudly present the first artwork for this story. While Bryan likely won’t commission as many pieces of art as Abbie does for Cowry Catchers, this probably won’t be the last. The artist for this piece is Obsidian Abnormal, and his webcomic can be found at Commissioned Comic. Once a year, he does a marathon of one piece of art a day for several weeks. Yes, this was done in a single day! Here’s the making-of video. Hopefully this glimpse will get people excited for Bryan’s story!
In a continuation from Episode 7, Bryan, Abbie, Christof, Nobi, and John talk about using paypal, writing for audio, and working with voice actors.
Paypal has a micropayment option.
Tunecore is one of several options for selling content in the itunes store.
Scott Sigler is a good example of someone selling their own content successfully (via Dark Overlord Media).

Bryan and Abbie discuss a wide range of topics, from production to casting to marketing with Christof Laputka (author,producer) and Nobi Nakanishi (director) of The Leviathan Chronicles. John Lincoln (from The Iocaine Project podcast) joins the discussion about directing voice actors.

In the second half of an interview with Rish Outfield and Big Anklevich of The Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine, we discuss getting involved in the podcasting community. Some show notes:
We’ve been recording with the MP3 Skype Recorder since Episode 4.
Go to Audio Drama Talk to find a variety of audio drama podcasts.
Consider the Podiobooks Community when looking for eager voices.
For those new to The Dunesteef, a good starting point would be their reading of A Place So Foreign by Cory Doctorow.
Finally, Bryan spoke at length about the “wall of sound”. He was talking primarily about the use of separate frequency ranges for overlapping sounds in order to avoid having them mask eachother, allowing them to both be loud and concurrently audible. Historically, the “wall of sound” involves simultaneous playing of the same sounds on multiple instruments, which is sort of the opposite. We’ll just have to have Dan on again sometime to clarify its use in audio fiction.
