Scripted Audio Is Having Its Moment… Again

|| Event Date: Saturday, November 21, 2020 ||

|| Speaker: Bill Taub || 

|| Start time: 1:00 pm PST ||

 

There’s a new game in town. Rather an old game. Really a ‘new old’ game. More precisely, a new old game rebranded as ‘scripted audio’ or ‘scripted podcasts’. What we used to call ‘radio’. Scripted audio allows you more freedom as a writer.  More info below.

More Information:

Technology has changed everything. For screenwriters, it has given us hundreds of original programs, over 50 networks, and now audio and video streaming. Because of expanding internet capabilities media has become an instantaneous global mobile business. There are no borders. No boundaries. The need for content is massive. Suppliers are scouring everything. Creating enormous opportunities for creators that never existed before.

The Audible executive (Amazon’s audiobook platform) opened our ears to the power of audiobooks. At the same time, we were told audiobooks wasn’t going to be their only business. They were getting heavily into this nascent concept of ‘scripted audio’. Every conceivable type and genre is possible. Fiction. Non-fiction. Comedy. Drama. Variety.

As writers ‘scripted audio’ gives you another chance to get exposure and activity that is worth thinking about even for old scripts you have that can be adapted to scripted audio. It can be a critical sample in your portfolio. You can use as many locations you want to in this world or out. It doesn’t cost a dime more. You don’t have to worry about budgets. The only genre that doesn’t work in audio is animation! This class will discuss all the above and more!
