Who hasn't been listening to their favorite podcasts on repeat? We can't get enough of them, and narrative podcasts, in particular, have exploded recently. Homecoming, anyone? Turns out, there's a whole host of benefits to making an audio drama: the barrier to entry is low, you get to be the one in control of the storytelling, and it's a great way to showcase your work and get your voice out there!
But how do you transition from a visual medium to an audio one? What are the key things you as the creator need to be thinking about before diving in?
To answer all this and more, Roadmap welcomes back the impeccable Bento Box Entertainment Script Coordinator Aaron Daniel Jacob to give his expertise!
This 90-Minute Webinar Will Cover:
- Why an audio drama?
- Creating your narrative podcast
- Getting your work out there
- Live Q&A!
