I run the website http://www.strangecompany.net
Currently we are small but I've been trying to get the word out about the shows hosted on it for a while now.
Unfortunately it is a little hard to keep people interested since we only have 2 seasons of one show.
I am hoping to change that. I'm starting a new show called "Stray Dogs" which will be a series of one off episodes. Each episode will be between 5-12 minutes long and voiced by a group of dedicated actors.
Writers this is where I need you:
I have a lot of ideas but I think that this is the kind of show that would really shine if there were an assortment of writers. All you'd have to do is send in episodes. I'll cast the voices (if you have a specific voice actor/actress in mind that is fine) and mix the shows. You can sit back and do the writing you want to do without all the hassel of the rest!
Would anyone out there be interested in a project like this?
Oh and because these are good questions:
1)Are you looking for a particular genre of stories?
I'm looking for stories that can be told in a 5-12 minute long show. One off stories with original characters. Think of it like those old cartoon network shows that had single episodes of cartoons that didn't have a series of their own. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Random!_Cartoons
2) Do you want us to write out actual stories or just "scripts" of stories?
Scripts please. I write a podcast series of my own and don't have time to convert stories to scripts without being hired to do so.
3) Are there any requirements that we have to meet in order to join?
Love to write, know how to create an audio podcast script. Patience as I gather writers together and audition our cache of actors and actresses.
4) How often would you need us to send in episode ideas; every week? bi-weekly? every month??
It depends. I think at the moment I am up for mixing 2 shows a month, if other people would like to share the responsibility of mixing and casting (and posting) with me then we could get a faster rotation going.
