Creating Audio in Lockdown
This performance has taken place in the past
with Jack Bowman
Sales for this event will stop at 10pm, Thursday 10th December
As the global lockdown began, Jack Bowman, a scripted podcast veteran of 15 years experience (formerly of Audible UK, BBC Studios Audio), came to hard realisation that scripted audio production would have to adapt and evolve incredibly quickly. With no studios, no means of bringing a cast together, no means of working in a company, just how could one create audio content in the ‘new normal’?
Using his recent hit podcast series, Circles, as a working example, Jack will talk you through the process of how actors, writers, directors and producers can use a combination of remote technology, home studios and isolated post-production to be recreate the studio experience, and show you that audio drama can thrive as a medium where others struggle in the most trying of times.
All workshops this season have tickets available through both the Tron and the Gaiety, if one has sold out then do make sure you check the other to grab a spot.
