I am very happy to welcome a new producer to CRT - Eric Busby. Eric comes to us from Darker Projects (Don't worry DP fans, he's not leaving you), where he has produced some amazing work, one of which is THE BYRON CHRONICLES, which CRT will be presenting on our XM Radio Show very soon.
His first assignment will be our production of KING SOLOMON'S MINES by H. Rider Haggard. We will start recording later this month, we hope to release it in March or April. We are hoping to get Kevin McLeod to score the program, and the script was written by J.T. Turner. This has always been one of my favorite stories, and I am very excited to be bringing it to life in sound!
Last summer we announced our up-coming production of MOONFLEET, by J. Meade Falkner. I finished one script and part of another, but then got caught up with family issues and the project went on the shelf - although I thought that someday it would make a great show. I am happy to tell you that Deniz Cordell is taking over the script for this one, and we hope to record this in March or April. MOONFLEET is not about spaceships - it is a smuggling tale set in 18th Century England.
that's the update on this freezing cold January night!
