"Rain of the Ghosts" Moves to AudioPlay and Kickstarter
This full cast production features sound effects, music and an award-winning cast including Emmy winners, Ed Asner (Up, Mary Tyler Moore Show, Lou Grant), and Bryton James (The Young & The Restless, Young Justice), Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Marina Sirtis and Brent Spiner, Sons of Anarchy’s Jacob Vargas and an all-star lineup of animation voice talent from Star Wars Rebels, Young Justice, Spectacular Spider-Man, Gargoyles and Darkwing Duck.
Rain of the Ghosts is a Young Adult Paranormal adventure about Rain Cacique, a 13-year old girl living on the Ghost Keys, a chain of islands on the edge of the Bermuda Triangle. In this first book of the series, Rain discovers she has the ability to speak with ghosts and that a family heirloom holds the key to an ancient secret that mysterious forces want to stop her from learning.
The voice work is already recorded and Greg is running a Kickstarter to complete the post-production at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1693681637/rain-of-the-ghosts-full-cast-audioplay
“This is not a standard audiobook recording, with one guy reading a novel from front to back, struggling to play all the characters, male and female, without any help from music or effects,” says Weisman. “No, this is a full cast recording: an unabridged AudioPlay with twenty actors, sound effects and a full musical score. It’s got everything but the visuals – and I promise it’ll fire your imagination enough so that the images will be there too – right inside your head. This is a studio-quality production without any studio backing or studio interference.”
Rewards include pre-orders of the AudioPlay, dinner with Greg & cast members, as well as an Associate Producer credit on the final product.
