Anthropomorphic Radio Productions is an idea I've been kicking around for a few years now that I think could be a lot of fun.

The idea is to produce "radio dramas" in the spirit of the golden age of radio, which lasted from the early 1920s through the introduction of the first televisions in the 1950s. This was an era that produced many of the most famous productions of old radio (think Orson Welles and the Mercury Theatre on the Air, War of the Worlds, the Sherlock Holmes radio dramas, etc). I'm envisioning going beyond just "audiobooks" - just one or more people reading a story - to a full adaptation and production, including music and sound effects.

In order to pull this off, we're going to need a wide range of talent:
  • Writers and radioplay adapters. There will be a role for both original content and adaptations of stories from other furry mediums.
  • On-air talent. Obviously we'll need voice actors. :)
  • Sound effects. We need people to research sound effects for the productions as well.
  • Musicians. While I'd love to have some original music, this may be the single biggest obstacle to overcome, so we may need to look into royalty free music.
  • Audio technicians. We need talented folks to mix a lot of sound together in a way that sounds awesome.
  • Producers and directors. Somebody's gotta shepherd a production from idea to completion.
  • IT/Web hosting. We'll need a website and a place to host the files. I'd like to see them available through iTunes and the like as well.
  • Sales? I kinda had this idea of selling advertisements as well. This is up for debate though.
