For one of my classes, we are allowed to do a creative assignment of sorts and I love audio editing - though it would be more work than just writing a piece of fiction, I thought doing a radio drama sort of deal might be pretty cool. I'm still not 100% sure how I will write it - I may do it as a series of audio diaries, or I might string everything together as a long narrative.
If you're wondering, the setting is pretty cyberpunk. I'm doing lots of research on nanotech, computers, etc. and doing a thing on a world where people become too dependent on technology. Using a lot of predictions by guys like Ray Kurzweil and stuff as a base and then trying to expand on it. This stuff is super duper preliminary. I just want to get an idea of who sounds like what.
This is a project that will get done because it is a homework assignment :3
This is the girl 'audition' piece:
"It’s today! I’ve sent holo-mails to all my friends… sure, I haven’t met most of them, but they’re just as excited as me! I’ve seen the 3D models of my baby - I think he’ll look just like his dad’s avatar. Big, strong, I bet he’ll make a great overseer someday.
Sometimes I wish I could have been an overseer… but being around all those machines in person makes me nervous. It’s a lot of responsibility! Anyway, I think I can be a tutor in a few years. It’ll be great to be a living breathing part of a child’s development. And besides, I’ve heard sometimes tutors get to leave their bio-suits. Sometimes tutors get to touch a child… to comfort them. They say it’s rare, but it happens!"
And here's an early intro to the whole thing that I've slapped together: http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=73fe793c99985f31d2db6fb9a8902bda
