Podcast Plays bring theatre online

(24:11) Podcast Plays' producer Patrick Flick and co-producer David Lee sit down with host Mark Baratelli to discuss podcasting, play writing, and the process of getting theatre content created, produced and placed online.

Podcast Plays was presented in the Shakespeare Festival Building as a special presentation for patrons of "Playfest," a large national playwriting festival, to listen to and enjoy in between "Playfest" performances. The Podcast Plays were placed on ipods donated by the Millenia Mall Apple Store, written by UCF Directing students and produced by Patrick Flick. I was lucky enough to be a part of this project, as Flick asked me to add sound effects to the plays, once they were recorded. According to Flick, the plays will be online soon.
