I'm still waiting to see if my attempts to sign up for EI have gone through or not. Phone lines are impossible to get through.

There's talk that they may have found a cure for the virus. Here's hoping.

@  A Fox in a D... : (22 March 2020 - 07:27 PM)

Yeah, our D&D sessions and just going out for drinks at local breweries is basically gone right now. We're thinking of doing remote sessions but it's still not the same.

@  Wulfsbane : (22 March 2020 - 03:28 PM)

It just sucks cause my friends and I can't do our usual weekend stuff cause most of the restaurants we go to are closed or takeout only

@  furrykef : (22 March 2020 - 11:20 AM)

I know exactly how you feel.

@  A Fox in a D... : (22 March 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Yeah, there's a part of me that, as an introvert, should be totally OK with the concept of staying home. But there's also a huge part of me that is incredibly unnerved by the concept of having the choice taken away. Before, it felt like something I wanted to do, but now it just feels lonely and sad.

@  A Fox in a D... : (22 March 2020 - 10:38 AM)

Ah, no worries. Thanks for clarifying. <3

@  Wulfsbane : (22 March 2020 - 05:31 AM)

I absolutely recognize that this is going to have a change in how we do things, for better or for worse. There's going to be some positive changes out of this and some negative changes as well. I get this is something we haven't seen in 100 years.

 

If I came off as insensitive, I should apologize and explained what I meant a bit more.

@  Wulfsbane : (22 March 2020 - 05:23 AM)

You misunderstand. My daily life consists of me going to work and going home. When I order food out I usually get take out anyways. See I work 2nd shift so my options of what I can/can't do is limited by time anyways and hasn't effected me as much, the only real thing being I can't sit down at the diner when I get out at 11pm-12am on a Friday night. So when I say I'm not changing much of my daily life it's because my routine is at a point where my interactions with people, in person, are limited to begin with

@  A Fox in a D... : (20 March 2020 - 11:01 AM)

Regardless of how you feel Covid affects you personally, there's an absolute change this puts on everyone globally, especially small businesses and at-risk people. It will influence how we look at the media landscape, how we deliver entertainment and services, and workplace practices going forward, some long term, some short, some good and some bad. These sort of pandemics don't come around with zero wake, and we've already seen that and are seeing it right now. If you don't think anything is different, then you aren't looking hard enough.

@  A Fox in a D... : (20 March 2020 - 10:09 AM)

No, Covid is it's already costing businesses and lives, and it's made life difficult for just about everyone I know, particularly in my industry where we've having to scramble to ship games from home. What you're doing is unwise and irresponsible, and you're not the only person in existence, so you can keep your "not really".

@  Wulfsbane : (19 March 2020 - 08:57 PM)

Not really. I'm still going about it as if nothing's different

@  GetCrazyWith... : (18 March 2020 - 06:48 PM)

Covid is going to screw up all our lives

@  RedAuthar : (17 March 2020 - 09:43 PM)

I know your pain Ben, I know your pain...

@  Shadow : (16 March 2020 - 08:13 PM)

Lucky you.

@  Wulfsbane : (16 March 2020 - 05:16 AM)

I still gotta work

@  A Fox in a D... : (16 March 2020 - 12:03 AM)

It's only boring if you make it so. I'm stuffing my quarantine with as much art as I can muster.

@  furrykef : (13 March 2020 - 07:16 AM)

Stupid COVID-19 got chess club canceled. I guess I should prepare myself for a particularly boring next few months.

Hey guys!

 

A little over a year ago, I happened upon Sonic SatAM on YouTube purely by accident, and I grew to like it so much that I became a fan.  Not just of the show, mind you, but the franchise in general.  Though I've never played any of the games, I've found something to love through both SatAM and the Archie comics.  However, one thing I don't like about them is that on both counts, their stories were tragically cut short.  Fortunately, I came to find out that many dedicated fans have started projects to continue these stories, such as Archie Sonic Online, Sonic Retold by Glitcher, and of course this site's very own Season 3.  I love all of these projects and I eagerly await what else comes from them in the future.  However, the writer in me couldn't help but wonder how I would continue SatAM, so I wrote a continuation, initially intended to be the length of a movie script, but over time, it mutated into a 275-page monster of a script.  Anyway, I thought it actually came out really well and my friends and family I showed it to agreed, saying it was too good to not at least share it online for those who might be interested in it.  But then, on a whim, I decided to take it a step further and see if it would be viable to turn it into a fully voice acted audio drama.  So, I posted a casting call on Behind the Voice Actors and waited for a response.  To my pleasant surprise, I was able to put together a small group of like-minded and talented people to help me bring this project to life.  We officially came together about 6 months ago, and thus far, we've released the first three episodes of this project, are putting some finishing touches on episode 4, and recording for the next block of episodes is in progress.  Though we're all very proud of all the hard work we've put into this so far, we've had some difficulty finding an audience on YouTube.  So if you guys are interested in taking a look at our project, leaving a like, or providing feedback and critiques, we'd love to hear them.  Here are the links for the first three episodes:

A very solid effort. Audio dramas are a pretty tough media to crack and do justice as they mainly rely on the voice talent along with sound and music to tell the story, plus writing for them can be a challenge as the writer needs to rely solely on telling the audience what is happening via the dialogue of the characters without making it too awkward.

 

Plus, and just a hunch, but seeing as these are audio dramas and judging by your username, I take it the main inspiration for producing these as audio dramas came from Big Finish Production's range of Doctor Who audios.


'Star Wars' is my story, just like my house is my house. So if I wanna paint my house green, even if everyone else thinks it should be red, guess what? I'm gonna paint it Jar Jar! - George Lucas

"The Devil Inside is the new scam from director William Something Something. The movie stars actors and was edited on a computer. Somewhere. This movie is the latest film in a series of very low budget films designed to look like real movies! And be released in theaters to make a quick buck via a horribly off kilter budget to profit ratio that the general public seem to be stupidly unaware of! These films use to be called 'direct to video' but now they are called 'first run features'. These films then vanish from the theaters, like a rapist leaving the scene of a crime." - Mike Stoklasa of RedLetterMedia

Thank you for your kind words, you have no idea how much time and effort went into just these three episodes.  I was indeed partially inspired by Big Finish Doctor Who (I've only listened to a few of them, but I became intrigued by the format, seeing it as untapped potential among fan projects), but that being my username is just a happy coincidence.  I chose the name as a placeholder a few years ago when I started thinking about writing fan content and posting it online.  It's just I never got to use it when I began juggling college and a part-time job.

Well Big Finish certainly do some amazing work. I've been collecting their releases for 20 years now and it's become my favourite way of enjoying Doctor Who. I'd highly recommend getting some more if you can.

 

But you and your team keep up the good work, I look forward to hearing more.
