October 30th is World Audio Drama Day and this year Buffalo, NY has something to say about it.
For five years Aural Stage Studios has been quietly producing and releasing award-winning audio dramas from their Buffalo, NY site.
But this past February we decided to kick it up a notch and by May 2015 Aural Stage Studios, Inc. was formed.
As a 501©(3) nonprofit organization Aural Stage has set out to create a network of local talent to learn, create and distribute audio drama.
Additionally we plan to offer community classes and workshops on:
- voice acting
- field recording
- audio production
We are seeking funding for and developing programs such as:
- an audio arts immersion and residency program for local storytellers who are looking for another way to share their visions.
- a children’s literacy program that puts voice actors with books in front of Buffalo Public School children.
- a program to collect, archive and distribute the personal stories of Buffalo’s people, their experiences and history.
We are currently raising funds for our newest production, Otherworldlies.
Otherworldlies is a 12 episode audio series that was written by Buffalo writers, cast Buffalo actors and is being recorded in Buffalo’s GCR Audio Studio. To find out how you can get involved visit: http://auralstage.com/support-us or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
