Gotham City Radio

About a week or so ago, I announced and previewed a radio play I had written and was in the process of editing together. I am now finished, at least with a first mix of the show. It’s a few minutes shy of a half hour long, with nine scenes of varying length. Me and some nice and talented friends of mine recorded every line of dialogue in it. It’s pretty cool.

Here it is: enjoy!

I put references to as many Batman villains as I could fit. Some are more subtle than others. Some, unfortunately, I couldn’t get in at all. Please don’t feel slighted if your favorite rogue was missed.

Gotham Radio

I won’t let myself be discouraged! Instead, let me share my progress on one of the other, non-writing things I’m doing right now. To make a long story (that’s not entirely mine to tell) short, I have a script for a radio play framed as an episode of a Gotham City broadcasting network, which I wrote with the intention of recording with friends several years ago. Back then, it was never actually finished, but now I’m redoing it with other friends. I’m still editing it all together, but all the lines have been recorded and I’m making good progress, so it ought to be finished in a few weeks. For now, here’s a preview of it: one of Harvey Dent’s campaign ads as he runs for mayor.
