StoryLight Podcast hosts Live Episode Recording on Discord
PRESS RELEASE ·
February 6, 6-8pm ET
The StoryLight Podcast, in which top acting talent from around the globe retell favorite childhood classics, will host a live recording event on the platform Discord, with opportunities for audience participation and an audio-visual glimpse into the exciting process of audiobook narration.
Accomplished audiobook narrator and producer Byron Wagner will invite us into his professional home studio and lead us through a recording session of the next StoryLight Podcast episode of Jack London’s White Fang. StoryLight producer Gail Shalan will moderate questions on the chat. Live feedback and participation will be encouraged. Suggestions from attendees will impact the final released episode. The audience is free to come and go as they please throughout the event.
“People listening to this are actually participating live, and something they say can literally change the course of how this project goes. That’s tremendously compelling,” said Wagner. “People who liked audiobooks could come and visit the sausage factory.”
“Narrators can also come listen to somebody else do it, and that was really important to me,” he added. “This isn’t something that you normally associate with the art of audiobook narration.”
This unique event will take place on Discord, the breakthrough instant messaging and digital distribution platform designed for creating communities, in the Narrator’s Nook server where over 800 narrators, authors, and audiobook lovers share live readings and audiobook-related conversation.
The creative team behind the event includes esteemed voice, stage and screen actors, directors, producers who will use their talents to create a virtual community space, an educational opportunity, and a live performance experience, to bring storytellers and listeners together in a time of isolation.
This event is sponsored by the groundbreaking spoken word software company, Pozotron.
