WhiteScreen Promotions are proud to announce that the strikingly iconic short doc Is Anyone Listening- A Podcast Story will be debuted at this years Sci Fi London film festival next month. The documentary is the story of how Christina Barsi brought the podcast (audio drama) Dimension to vivid life. Dimension is a trail blazing drama that fuses Sci Fi with the film noir of classic crime thrillers and a new genre is born, Sci Noir. You can discover Dimension yourself here and check out the brand new trailer for the short doc below.
"I am delighted to be working with Christina Barsi who has been a supporter of WhiteScreen since I set the company up. Her creative flair and refusal to compromise or to conform constantly inspires me. I relish the opportunity of matching her passion with some of my own" Daniel White
Christina Barsi is currently raising funds, through an IndieGoGo CrowdFunder, to personally bring over her short film to London. With Dimension representing a viable possibility for a feature film and perhaps more interestingly a tv series, the future for the Podcast writer are looking exciting. Like most dedicated Indie creatives, Barsi has invested a huge amount in her projects emotionally and financially. It is hoped that with a receptive audience at Sci Fi London the project will reach out to a new generation of Sci Noir fans and continue wowing listeners. With companies such as Big Finish and AudioGo developing huge audiences here in the UK and Worldwide, the potential market for a new kind of audio drama is as exciting as it is challenging.
"Releasing this documentary to an audience in Europe, particularly the U.K., who has been following the podcast Dimension since the start is exciting not only because I think it will be well received but because I want to show artists around the world, Hollywood included, that you can touch the ends of the earth with your ideas, your dreams & to never stop creating!"
Barsi could never be accused of taking the easy route but her determination and tenacity matches her talent and she has deserves the recognition that has developed around her. Dimension sets itself apart from other audio dramas because it forges new paths and instructs as well as entertains.
