We are proud to announce that both Is Anyone Listening- A Podcast Story and its writer and creator will feature at a significant panel during Sci Fi London later this month. Appearing alongside Barsi will be industry luminaries from Big Finish (Jason Haigh-Ellery) Audible Originals (Rebecca Fenton) as well as Richard Kurti (Lead Writer BBC Radio 4) and experienced Audio producer Andrew Mark Sewell. We are delighted that Sci Fi London have recognised both the talent of Barsi and the sheer originality she has developed with her Podcast, Dimension... So what about Audio? The most important element in storytelling? Whether as an audio drama, on film or in new VR immersiverses, what we hear is paramount to stimulating the imagination, especially when it comes to dramatising sci-fi.
Our panel experts from the world of audio, television, film and VR, discuss and demonstrate how what we hear... can stretch not only your imagination but make you believe that worlds beyond our knowledge really do exist.
With visualisations, audio clips and the world premiere of a new documentary about a podcast drama it's time to really tune-in.
