I’m still trying to come up with a concrete idea for my honours project. In order to find a question or a problem that I can investigate, and attempt to answer or ‘solve’, I’ll be asking audio drama producers and would-be producers for their biggest obstacles. Things that hold them back, slow them down, or even prevent them from starting in the first place.
Some other questions I’ve jotted down so far are;
Is creating audio drama a worthy alternative to written fiction?
Why does the popularity of audiobooks currently dwarf the popularity of modern audio drama?
How would an exclusive audio drama directory (based on the Netflix model) function?
What prevents audio drama listeners/fans from producing their own shows?
