Tweet of the Day, They’re Remaking The Shadow: Black Rock edition.


The idea is apparently to redo the 1938 radio play The Shadow: Black Rock, only with eighty years’ worth of technological advancement in sound production and whatnot added.  I’d listen to that!  I love the old radio plays, and I’m very happy that the Internet is big enough to allow all the other people who love that stuff too AND who have the relevant skill sets to make things like this. It kind of makes up for some of the other stuff that’s out there.

    Very cool.
    I’m surprised there isn’t more of this going on.
    Good quality recording gear had become dirt cheap. You can easily set up a really nice home recording studio for well under $200. (Why, yes. I have been obsessing over the topic for the past couple of months.)
    And the audio manipulation you can do nowadays with a computer is just insane.
    The major investment is time. Mic technique and the relevant programs have a learning curve. (You too can develop a love-hate relationship with Jack.)

      I think that the bottleneck is in how many people want to seriously do this. And how many of them get seduced into doing hi-quality television-style recording for YouTube.

        People are strange.
        Learn recording, video editing and audio editing at the same time? Do they play Dwarf Fortress to relax afterwards?
        Some people get downright silly about a chance at fame. Alphabet knows this, and I have to wince at how they’ve been treating their content providers.
        There doesn’t seem to be a shortage of people willing to endure the abuse, but it seems to me that signal:noise is much worse than it used to be.
