If you like audio storytelling, then listen to this! My good friend and fellow Salisbury University super-senior wrote and produced a speculative fiction audio piece in homage to Orson Welles' War of the Worlds.
The aim of this episode project was to examine and expose particular ideologies embedded in contemporary American society. Beau and I wanted to draw attention to America’s obsession with football, the corporatization of drug abuse and drug-addiction, and the negative effects of prescription medication. We loved the idea of zombies because they’re seemingly brainless yet savage. I wanted to tell a story that got people thinking about how contemporary media transforms consumers into these mindless animals who don’t really have any agency.
I also made a 'behind the scenes' video of the pilot episode of our speculative fiction podcast.
