Radio Play Demo Reel

UNCSA - Henry V

In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the University of North Carolina School of the Arts chose to do a radio play production of Shakespeare's Henry V. We gave actors microphones to record individually at home, while all acting with each other over Zoom. I was the assistant recording and editing engineer, helping to assemble the dialogue, then cutting sound effects and mixing down the entire show. Below are some excerpts from the production, and more information can be found here.

UNCSA - Soundscape Project

While not a traditional radio play, this project got at the core of what radio plays are about - telling stories with only sound. We were given a prompt and a time frame, then were encouraged to explore that idea and tell a story about it. The prompt was simply "An apartment building's gas furnace malfunctions, causing an explosion and a fire that rapidly engulfs the building and causes pandemonium."

BYU Voice Acting Class

After spending a full semester learning about voice acting, BYU's voice acting class records a full length radio play. The professor asked me to then do the sound design for it afterwards. After receiving the lines they recorded during class, I mixed the dialogue down and added all the effects and music on top of it. Below are some excerpts of those plays.
