Project: narrators for true crime video podcast

We do true crime and true encounters with the strange. These are SCRIPTED video presentations.

We're looking to add narrators and writers to our core group.

The main host needs regular fill-in hosts. If you enjoy doing this, we plan to have a couple of scripts a month for you. If you have a good personality for video presentations, the job is easy! You'll record the video in your own home on your own time. We'll show you a free teleprompter link. So all you need is a decent mic and a laptop. Green screen is a plus, but not essential.

You'll get "hosted by" credit and IMDB. You can also take the opportunity to pitch yourself or your work.

The scripts are usually around 4000 to 5000 words. This should be a half to an hour's work. We edit out mistakes, so you just have to have fun and read. 

If you are familiar with Mr. Ballen's channel, this is a perfect example of the type of storytelling we want and the style of video presentation. 

 

 

Three things are needed for a great story: an engaging storyteller, an audience, and of course the story.

The storyteller: A good storyteller is animated, brings energy, looks the audience in the eye and says "come with me on this journey". 

The audience is a critical part of the equation. In a live setting, the storyteller can sense the audience's attention drifting away, and adjusts her story to recapture it. This adjusting shows how the vital interaction between the storyteller and the audience shapes the story itself. With a youtube channel, that feedback is limted to comments below. But a good storyteller can still imagine that audience and create the sense of interaction. A wry small or perfectly placed inflection. The storyteller instinctively understands the audience interaction and gets better at this over time. It's a crucial skill for stand-up comics, educators, actors and boardroom executives. 

The story itself is where the all-important but seldom appreciated writing comes in. We want a small team to work together, growing in their skill at crafting stories that hook an audience and hold it.

Project: "Miserable Creatures"

AUDITION NOTICE!

Miserable Creatures

If you’ve never had the opportunity to originate a role in a world premiere stage play, this could be your chance! We are currently accepting submissions for three specific roles in our new production for 2022, Miserable Creatures! The show will run in October 2022 (just in time for the Halloween season) in the South Park, PA area (outside of Pittsburgh) and begin rehearsing in mid to late summer. Rehearsal schedules are established in advance, and they are based on actor conflicts. Although this may seem, at first, like an early commitment, it’s important to note that this is a brand-new project in development from the script up, and if you are familiar with our past work, you know we design on an epic and meticulously detailed scale. 

SYNOPSIS:

In a bleak city, in a nebulous time, Victor Frankenstein, a brilliant doctor, whose pursuit is cutting-edge neurological studies, develops a brain modification device he dubs “Prometheus,” for a prestigious institute. But, when it’s discovered that he’s been conducting unauthorized human trials, in his apparent ambition to realize the full potential of the machine, with little regard to the risks, his program is suspended.

Soon after, while sharing a celebratory evening out with his best friend, Victor’s younger brother, William, an equally brilliant, and extremely kindhearted young student, runs afoul of a volatile thug, named Felix De Lacey. Felix beats William within an inch of his life, leaving him a battered husk, and destroying his formerly bright future. In a fitting twist of fate, while in police custody, Felix is also beaten nearly to death by other savage offenders.

Victor, crushed under the weight of his inconsolable despair, enlists help in the acquisition and restoration of Felix’s broken body, before undertaking a mad endeavor to use “Prometheus” to overwrite Felix’s brain with William’s intellect and memories.

A fateful lightning strike during the procedure, however, sets the stage for heartbreak and calamity, as Felix rises once more, his consciousness not erased, but cohabiting with that of his last victim. Victor is then left to watch the bloody consequences of his reckless decisions, as those around him fall at the hands of his creation.

A combination of grim neo-noir and Le Théâtre du Grand-Guignol, Miserable Creatures is a dark and visceral exploration of how hubris and ambition can blind one to the ethical ramifications of one’s own actions—until it’s too late.

*This production is violent, gory, and contains uncomfortable subject matter. Style is NOT for the sensitive or squeamish.
