A really nicely done video from author Mary Campisi, who understands the power of video as a tool for promoting her work.
I recorded the voice of Charles Blacksworth narrating some lost letters that he had written to other major characters in her series “A Family Affair”. Initially her creative technologist posted these letters as 2D works with my voice-over. Today however they have kicked things up a huge notch by releasing a really nicely produced video. Very very captivating.
I’m more than a little excited. I am, in fact going to live on Mars. I am very pleased to announce that I just signed a contract to produce an amazing audio book. This book is phase one in a unique approach to theatre (at least I’m pretty sure it’s unique). It starts as a song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v–IqqusnNQ transformed into a novel and will be produced as a musical in the UK in mid-2016.
Author Michael J. Dawson http://www.michaeljdawson.co.uk/ has written a novel based on this work of David Bowie. From the webpage for Life on Mars:“Life on Mars brings together so much of the spirit that has defined David Bowie and the world he created for us. Its the story of an ordinary guy who struggles to cope with his own alienation before finally discovering hidden strength is his individuality. Life on Mars is an androgenous love story that spans a thousand years.”
And finally, don’t miss the video promo that Mike has produced introducing this exciting project: http://www.lifeonmarsbook.com/
A blog post from my dear friend and collaborator Uvi Poznansky about her audiobook we recently completed. Click on image to go to Uvi’s site.
That’s a running gag with a friend of mine. “Wait for it”…and it describes the feeling you get when reading well written psychological thrillers. Or not. Sometimes you don’t see it coming at all – so much more’s the thrill.
One of my clients is a young author from the UK with a very promising career ahead. My first work with Richard was “The Song of Kings” – an epic tome the sample for this work can be found on my samples page. This is the second book I have voiced for Richard Chance and it kept me up at night for two reasons. 1) Working into the wee hours and 2) Not sleeping because I had just recorded another chapter.
This title will be available on Amazon in a few short weeks, so in the meantime you’ll just have to: Wait for it…
Uvi Poznansky is the bomb! I absolutely loved realizing her work. She recently asked me for an interview to publish to her blog so thought I would post here as well. (Click on the picture to go to the interview)
Thanks Uvi. This was more fun than we should be allowed to have.
As a self-proclaimed “Technologist” I have spent a great deal of time working in video and video production. This is a sample of what happens when you try to capture your life in 5 minutes, or there-about.
I feel unbelievably fortunate to be where I am now. Lots of years, and lots of work as a story teller and thanks to ACX, it’s all coming together. It’s been an amazing career and it literally feels like the train has pulled into the station.
Producing audio books is singularly satisfying for me. It is where all roads converge. So grateful to ACX and my authors.
