5 Tips for Creating Immersion in Audio Drama/Podcasting | Prefaces and Asides

5 Tips for Creating Immersion in Audio Drama/Podcasting | Prefaces and Asides | Drama for ELL's | Scoop.it

In audio drama, story may be the king, and acting may be the queen, but immersion is the wild card. The listener needs to love the story, but they also need to be pulled in to the story in a way that holds them, and doesn’t break their focus or break their suspension of disbelief. It can improve a piece greatly, and destroy one that's already perfect. A well put together soundscape will transport a listener into your world in a way that words just can't on their own.

 

It's not easy. When someone listens to your work, you’ve made an agreement with them; they will let you con them into believing what they hear is real, and you will provide them with a product that pulls that off. They have fulfilled their end of the bargain by pressing play; from that point on, their yours to lose.

 

Creating a good soundscape takes time, and it can’t be rushed. I'm going to repeat that; it cannot be rushed. The listener (assuming the “king” and “queen” are solid) will be pulled into the story you weave, and it’s your job to both drag them deeper into the experience while things that will make them access the active part of their brains.
