Nebulous Rex – radio theater

Several years ago, s&S thought it might be fun to try our hand at something along the lines of conventional radio theater…hmmm.
Well, the fact that we didn’t make it past the first episode I think speaks more of the realization that hand-making and editing every line and every sound was a bit time consuming…shoot, we even foleyed the subtle movement of character clothing and light foot movements in separate takes! ..and in many cases, we weren’t even in the same city when recordings lines and emailing them back and forth – though, in the end I’d say it was all fairly convincing.
I realize there are no Oscar winning performances here and that the plot is a bit thin (fneh!), but still – there are many enjoyable, ridiculous scenes in these 30 minutes….and if jLesser really liked it, then it can’t be all that bad… i think. :P
most all voices by FC & DC, minus the appearance of 2 lady pals. Click on the image above get to more info.

from the original Nebulous Rex pressmill:
EPISODE 1 SUMMARY – After an extended drift, the interstellar floater – Euphonius Drive- finally has the legendary Aegax Oliasis asteroid in it’s midst when a confounding transmission comes through, apparently from it’s surface.
Under mysterious circumstance, things on board begin to take on a new order.
Talking computers, Polynesian snifters, falling chandeliers, prize shirts, and personnel tracking machines are all cosmic bedfellows in the year of our astrolord 1771………..the start of a segmented introduction to ‘Nebulous REX’
