June 11th, 2011, sitting down to our first recording session for Season Two. We’re experimenting with technology today: working on simultaneously recording actors with a matched pair of microphones. I’m lounging on the couch with my laptop and Clayton is watching sound levels on his desktop, while Ryan, sound designer and actor, is testing the microphones for ideal placement. It’s so incredibly exciting to be here: better organized, with more technical know-how and more of a handle on the medium itself.
So much is happening quickly- new scripts are coming in from the writers, we’ve got new actors and old ones returning to play with us again, we have a production manager and meetings with a lawyer (the good kind of meetings-more on that soon!) and a new, fully tricked-out website. The number of visitors to the site has been steadily increasing, and we have a host of amazing artists contributing work.
That being said: it’s retaining the fun of a couple of occasionally geeky artists, hanging out in a garden apartment recording some radio.
UPDATE: Check out these photos from the recording session by Travis Sauder!
Below is the very first Video Blog from Jeffrey and Clayton! We’ll be doing these periodically, giving you a small window into the inner workings of OFC. They will likely include rants from our writing staff, opinions from our webmaster, and quite possibly ravings from our sound designer. They are recorded in The Our Fair City Recording Studio (also known as Clayton’s apartment), using a High-end audio/visual communication device (also known as a droid. Like, the phone, not an R2 unit. You’ll notice at no point are we static-y, blue, or asking for Obi-wan’s help).
We’ll be taking a brief hiatus from Episodes this week- Episode 11, “Let’s Make a Deal,” will be released next wednesday. Get excited!
See you in the tunnels,
