Before my can hitting the pavement for work in May, I had started a short but ambitious project regarding my Heather blog serial. An audio reading of the second entry, “The Screaming Well”. This one felt the most polished out of the two and one never-published draft. Primarily I was looking for someone to just read the story, but I decided later that a short dramatization would be possible if I had the right resources. The result? A near hour-long audio production.
Narrated by Christina Roberts (author of Revolutionary Rosanna), the audio drama features a small but wide cast voice talents. Chelsea Cook from the popular Youtube show Teens React voices the main character Heather, Angie Cillo from the podcast But You’re So Level Headed voices Janus, and Dolly, a UK Voiceover artist who briefly lends her talent for Elizabeth. Last but not least, indie musician Plasterbrain, known for her work on the JelloApocalypse Youtube channel has even allowed us to use her song Modal Shanghai for credits music!
All of them come together to tell you this short installment of Heather’s story, a troubled girl who’s a lot more sensitive and aware to paranormal things around her. After repeatedly getting a premonition of a subterranean terror, she and her younger foster brother go investigate an abandoned well in hopes of finding “her” monster. However, they may be getting more than she bargained for.
The audio drama of this story has been edited to be more suitable for a listening audience. If you’d like to read the installments for yourself, you may visit the link below:
