Wow! Lots of exciting news here. So, as you might remember, I had the great pleasure of working with BBC Director John Dryden in New York City this past August. His new show, “Severed Threads” airs at last, and you’ll be able to hear it on BBC Radio 4’s Afternoon Play slot over the next three days.
I also got the great opportunity to actually be FEATURED on the BBC Radio 4 Blog, yeah!
Here’s a clip of what I had to say about recording on location with John Dryden in NYC:
Recording on location requires nerves of steel – keeping your cool when cars drive by, airplanes take off overhead, dogs bark incessantly or a foghorn goes off. Or, as in the case of our trip to suburban New Jersey, when an army of gardeners with high decibel equipment shows up in the middle of the session. Juggling an uncontrollable, noisy world with the needs of a large cast and production crew seems a way to drive yourself insane.
And maybe it does. But for John Dryden – who kept a good attitude and smiled through the most stressful parts of recording – maybe it’s also the knowledge that all the trouble is worth it.
In case there was any doubt… Here’s a clip of us recording in a New York City apartment:
Stay tuned to the Afternoon Play this week for more Severed Threads!
