This is a quick update to let you know that after an unplanned hiatus, Season Two of Oblivity is now in production!
It's still not feasible to get our cast and crew together in a studio - and probably won't be for a while. SO we've invested in a bit of fancy kit, and we're exploring the brave new world of home recording!
(OK, it's not THAT new. Loads of shows do it. But it's new to us. )
We want to make sure Season Two is as good as it can be in every way. We’ve researched the tech, the software, and worked with actors to get everyone comfortable with the process. Spare rooms and sheds have become curtain-draped, mattress-stacked, cat-free recording spaces. We're asking aeroplanes, rain showers and pigeons to shush please.
We're about half way through our recording schedule - and so far it's going really well!
That said, we’ve a long way to go:
- Complex logistical operations shuttling microphones to more than 20 actors!
- Recording approx. 100 scenes where we can around people’s actual day jobs and far more important family commitments!
- And then the Herculean task of mixing and production - including building soundscapes, creating original music, and sourcing and in many cases actually creating around a couple of hundred sound effects!
Why are we putting ourselves through this?
Because somewhere among the headaches, we’re having fun, and we can’t wait to share the continuing Oblivity story with you, our brilliant listeners!
