Supermarket Matters returns!

It’s been a long time in the making, with a few set-backs to overcome along the way, but Supermarket Matters is back. Series 2 is bigger and better than series 1. There are still eight episodes but this time around they are 25 – 30 minutes in length. More along the lines of what you can expect from a broadcast radio comedy. They will be released each and every Monday at noon from this week on. This added time has allowed us to develop bigger, funnier and crazier plots. Prepare for a roller coster ride of emotions as we hit deep dramatic points and pants-wettingly comic moments. There are some thanks that need to go out to people for helping make this series so brilliant. Firstly, the actors, writers, post production and various artists involved. You have all been brilliant and without you, this just wouldn’t have happened. A extra special thank you goes out to Chrissy Smith, Osian Edwards and Ian Baldwin for stepping in at very short notice when, for one reason or another, the actors from series 1 weren’t able to take part in series 2. You all saved me massive amounts of stress and I can’t thank you enough. Of course, a big thank you needs to go out to everyone who helped fund us through our IndieGoGo campaign. As promised, even though we didn’t hit our goal we have still delivered something which I think you all will be proud of. All perks from the campaign will be being sent out before ... Read more »

What’s happening with Supermarket Matters series 2

gyuhubh

It has been a really long time since my last update. I feel really bad, especially as some have you have financially supported the second series. All I can do is hold my hands up and apologise. We have been busy beavering away with series 2 and I can tell you that it is on its way. Firstly, if you supported us in our IndieGoGo campaign you should have been contacted already about your perk. If not, please do get in contact with us through twitter @InEarEnt or by email: Markc@inearentertainment.com So, where are we with series 2. We are in post production. What this means is that all of the audio has been recorded and all of the sound files are now with our amazing sound dude who is putting them all together to make the episodes. He is working on them backwards (starting with episode 8) so that when we start releasing them we know that we have them all ready. He is also working on a few 30 second promotional ‘adverts’ which we hope to get out and into some other people’s podcasts. These will be uploaded here to whet your appetite. We are looking at a mid to end of August release date for the second series. Although I hope to be able to give some firm dates soon. If you have any questions, do post them in the comments below and I will do my best to answer them. Mark Read more »

Recording method test

newrecord

Today we tested a new recording method for In Ear Entertainment. I went over the rough idea of it in the New Recording Method post the other day. The day went well. Using actors in my local area, I knocked up a short Supermarket Matters script (about 3 minutes long) which would test some of the scenarios which we found difficult in post before. These were: People leaving the ‘action area’ but still talking People interrupting each other People talking over each other All of these, in our old method, were a pain to get right. This new recording method should sort them out during the recording. And it worked! The actors felt like they were properly acting, rather than just reading lines, as they had a space to move around in. They could control how loud they were in the recording by moving toward or away from the mic rather than having to guess with the volume of their voice. All in all, a good day. The recording is now with our post production dude to play around with to see what the final quality is like compared to what we have produced before. I have high hopes for this. One cool point of the new recording method is that we can add the Whoosh! Doors sound effects on live and record with the doors ‘as is’. This is done by having JD Kelly, the Whoosh! Doors actor, in another room with his own mic. This mic is attached to some magic sound box which adds the effect live ... Read more »
