Hi, Don, thanks for listing this, however, there is an extra 'e' in Leningrad in the title.

Cheers.

This is an audio drama adaptation of Leningrad, a short film of mine that was produced by the Northern Film School. Here is a link to the YouTube vid:

The audio adaptation is quite different as I've ramped up the horror. Can't imagine this ever being broadcast on BBC Radio 4... but radio is changing and the newer writers are being far more daring. After all, who under 60 would listen to The Archers? Then again, I also wonder how people can watch Soap Operas, yet millions do every day.

Got it - quite interesting. Never seen an audio script before - quite the different format

Dave, several years back OWC selectees were put in an audio format by Don. I mean Don arranged that for selectees. Not everytime, but  remember it was done quite a few times.

Good to see you, Dustin, by the way.

What I've done here is a little more difficult than simply changing the format. Screenplays need to be adapted to audio.

It's a different skillset... but if you can write convincing audio then you can write convincing dialogue in a screenplay. Audio is mostly about talking the story without making it sound as though you are talking the story.

I've been paid/am still being paid to adapt several novels into audio plays. Same thing again, you don't simply cut n paste the novel into Celtx and then change the format. The novels need to be adapted.

Thanks, K, always good to see you
