The Farscape Podcast Grp is looking for a few good 'Scapers!

Postby Firecracker on Thu Mar 23, 2006 6:53 am

The Farscape Podcast group is looking for a few good 'Scapers! (Also a better name.) :oops:

Our small group (Kurt_eh, Nicola/Firecracker, Brent Barrett and Kevin Bachelder) is moving forward - from the discussion phase to the pre-production phase - and we hope to launch our first show within the next few weeks. You guessed it... we need your help!

We have looked at some other fan created podcasts like "The Signal" http://www.serenityfirefly.com ,"The Babylon Podcast" http://www.babylonpodcast.com and Firefly Talk http://www.fireflytalk.com for ideas and have decided that our goal is to create content that both the long time fan will enjoy and at the same time bring new eyeballs to the show. Exactly what types of segments we will have is still up for discussion so if you have ideas :idea: that you want to share, and you have the desire and the time to help us, we would love to hear from you.

Experience is not required (good thing or I would be out on my ear); we are just looking for commitment and enthusiasm. If you think you might be interested in joining our merry crew please let us know by sending an email to: farscapepodcast@yahoogroups.com from the e-mail address that you want to use for the list. Please introduce yourself and explain why you want to join. =D>

We are planning to start small with just a few volunteers for now, but once we're off and rolling we may add some additional talent to the team. So if we get too many requests, we might have to ask some folks to hold off until our next request for help (apparently podcasts can never have enough writers). If this happens to you, please don't take it personally, as we truly appreciate each and every offer of assistance. :bearhug:

These are the areas we think we need help with (not psychiatric help ... yet.)

1. Writing of Segments (I KNOW there are fantastic writers out there... I have read your work.) Be part of the newest internet revolution, the Content Revolution!
2. Have you got a sexy voice? Even if you don't think you do - let us be the judge of that! :twisted: We are looking for people to do voice work to record articles and/or read fan e-mail.
3. Audio Editing Work (Brent has offered his talents in this area, but I am sure he would be happy with some help.)

We all know that Farscape is a continuing, evolving tale of love, honour, friendship, hope, betrayal, death and life. It is a comic, tragic, funny, sexy and dramatic show – often in the same five minutes – and it is well written science fiction. This is a show that deserves to be shared with others. Won’t you help? [-o<

If you aren't sure what a podcast is, check out this page that Kevin put together for the Browncoats over at "The Signal".

http://signal.serenityfirefly.com/podcasting.html

This page helps to explain things even more...

http://www.podcastalley.com/what_is_a_podcast.php

We are still looking for a name for our Farscape Podcast so if you have a suggestion or two - feel free to share it with us. We are planning to pick a few and then set up a poll so that the fandom can vote.

Other fanbased podcasts you might be interested in:

MuggleCast: www.mugglenet.com/mugglecast
The Transmission (Lost): http://www.hawaiiup.com/lost/
PodShock (Doctor Who): http://www.podcast.net/show/18947

And don't forget the scifi podcast network: http://www.tsfpn.com/tsfpn/index.html

So 'Scapers.... who is up for the challenge? :D

It is tough. But I have faith in 'Scapers... I think we can come up with a terrific name. ;)

I have request. Please include your screen name and board of choice in your reply if you decide to throw your lot in with the podcast crew. So far we know everyone who has responded (thank you for including your screen names!) but it occured to me that that is not going to always be the case.

So - please - since we are not always sure who is who (or even what day it is) - please include your screen name in your rely.

Thanks!

Well, I really like "The Uncharted Territories," but I think there is a fan site using that name.

The Farscape Podcast Project Needs A Name!

Postby Firecracker on Mon Mar 27, 2006 7:38 am

The Farscape Podcast Project Needs A Name - and for that 'Scapers ... we need you!

The Farscape Podcast crew had our first meeting tonight (yes... we all survived ). During our meeting we discussed important things like sound levels and microphone idiosyncrasies and techie thingies and also came to some conclusions about the purpose of this podcast project. We have decided that the Farscape Podcast Project aspires to help keep the passion of 'Scapers burning bright for both oldtimers and newcomers alike; to introduce newbies to Farscape and welcome them to the 'Scaper community.

From that lofty ambition we now have to decide what to call ourselves. We have set up a poll for the community at large to help us name the podcast. The poll will open bright and early Monday morning , March 27th and will close midnight (or thereabouts) Friday, March 31st. Midnight - when all good 'Scapers should be in bed. Or not .

Please check out all the choices of names at the link provided. http://www.bodenmaddox.com/polls/ and be part of 'Scaper history in the making.

Vote!

In a true Moya Moment, we discovered that there is already a podcast out there called PodScape. :oops:


So, in order to to set things right, and avoid any potential confusion with the other PodScape podcast, we have decided to pull PodScape from the poll. As a result, we have had to reset the polls to zero, and start over again. heh. 8-[

If you voted earlier than the time of this posting, then please come back and vote again for your favourite name! \:D/

If you try to vote and you get a message such as "Sorry, you cannot view the results for poll" then it means we already got your vote. =D>

http://www.bodenmaddox.com/polls/

If you have any trouble just post a message here and one of us will be glad to help.

:bearhug:

Thanks!

This is our "Plan B". ;)

Do you still need a radio-voice?

I have one of those.

I do multiple characters, if needed.

Please feel free to respond to us at...

farscapepodcast@yahoogroups.com

I don't believe we will need 'character' voices just folks willing to be themselves when they read articles and or fan emails.

Not as in characters of farscape, mind-- it's just an industry term regarding voice quality.

as opposed to Deep Resonant, or somesuch.

Gotcha...we'll be asking all the folks who volunteered to do voice work to eventually send us a sample recording so please go ahead and send a message to the us at farscapepodcast@yahoogroups.com and let us know what you're interested in doing and then one of us will be in touch with you to get the process started.
