Bryan’s Story Update 2

Happy Holidays, everyone!

Between moving and holidays, Bryan has not released anything via podcast in about a month.  Despite this, a ton of story and audio work has been done behind the scenes, including an upgrade to the mic setup Abbie talks about in Episode 15.  The final chapter of Bryan’s novel was trashed and fully re-written, and he is deep in the edits now.  A few facts about the story:

  • Over 20 characters will need to be voiced
  • 32 chapters, each ranging from about 2,000-6,000 words (average 3,360 per)
  • 155 scenes
  • Currently 107,500 words (and growing as edits are worked in)
  • A second piece of art has been commissioned, and should be coming soon!

Expect to hear more about the kind of work being done to prepare for a large scale production like this.  The next Fullcast Podcast will be primarily about the making of Bryan’s latest Dunesteef story, including specific voice effects with audio examples.  It is a wonderful (long!) story and should be well worth the wait.

2011 will be a busy and productive year.  We look forward to sharing it with our awesome and supportive audience!
