Wanted to see this one so bad when I was a kid but my mother would not let me… Finally watching it tonight! Review sometime soon…
“DO NOT LOOK OUTSIDE. DO NOT LOOK AT THE SKY. DO NOT MAKE NOISE.”
Recently I stumbled upon a Audio Drama podcast called The Phenomenon produced by Luciola Creative I listened to the first episode because I thought the description sounded a little interesting. By the end of the work day I had downloaded and listened to the entire back catalog of episodes. While binge listening to the podcast I found out that it was based on a book by R.K. Katic which I instantly went out purchased and read in no time at all.
I loved the story. I wont go to deep into it as to not give away any spoilers except to say that I thought it was a cool spin on your typical end of the world tale. Having access to the book there was the fear that if I read the story it would make me lose interest in the podcast… In reality the oppisite happened. Now I am even more excited about each episode of the story and can not wait to see how they plan to adapt all sorts of different upcoming parts.
The cast is wonderful, and the production very well done. I look forward to following the podcast to the end of the story, and hope to see a continuation of the tale in another book.
Spending the morning today working on research for the fifth episode of the podcast. This one will be my first journey into a zombie like world. The world of Night of the Comet. One of my favorite movies from my teen years.
Just for fun… Thought I would post the script that I had put together for the first episode of the podcast… Not how it ended up put together in the end. Made changes in editing when I found that things flowed better in another order… but still a fun little look.
It is 1972. This year saw the execution of 11 Israeli atheletes at the Olympics. The Supreme Court ruling against the Death Penalty. President Nixon was about to get caught up in the Watergate Scandal as five men were arrested for breaking into the DNC headquarters. MASH and The Price is Right premiered on TV and pay Cable was born with the launch of HBO and as the year limped to a close a movie about a little boat with a problem made its way to the big screen!
I have three new episodes recorded, edited, and ready to go just as soon as I figure out what I am going to be doing with some hosting issues…
In the near future the following episodes will make the way out in to the podcasting world.
S01E02 – Where Have All The People Gone?
S01E03 – FIRE! (1901 Silent Movie, possibly the first disaster movie…)
S01E04 – Disaster Audio Drama Podcasts
The very first episode of the podcast… Stumble a little on this one, and have a lot of room for improvment…
A short little introductory episode to the podcast!
