This is a little project we've been working on for a while. It falls into the realm of transmedia but touches on radio comedy and will eventually develop into a web or TV series. We're currently experimenting with style and tone.

Somewhere between Yes, Minister, The Hitch-Hiker's Guide To The Galaxy and Brazil, the narrative concerns three groups of characters:

A lowly civil servant accidentally promoted to the highest levels of government; who will come to work for;

two high ranking ministers coping with the recent privatisation of their intelligence organisation; who will shortly come into conflict with;

a pair of extraterrestrial gangsters who have crash-landed on earth and decide to lay low here avoiding galactic authorities.

Feedback welcome!

Note: the half hour radio episode is streamed three times a day but if you prefer an MP3 you can grab one here.


pizzahedron:

i'll check this out when i have some audio-able free time.

i do some radio work and have recently been trying to figure out how to make a live concert available to those who may not be able to attend. scheduled internet broadcasts sound like a really wonderful compromise between the availability of an open archive, and some of the community and experience inherent to a live show.

i have no idea if this is your own invention or a commonly used technique, but i hope you don't mind if i pass it on!
