I finished my first script for Epic of World Saga yesterday. It took me a little less than two hours to write, which is not as impressive as it sounds. The completed episode should come in at around 10, maybe 12 minutes.
Frances Marion (1918)
Although short, this episode is important for a few reasons. It marks the introduction of my lead character, Hilda, while simultaneously imparting important world-building information and setting up the next entry in the series (the latter of which is a true EoWS rarity, as we normally don’t move things along in chronological order).
Hilda has been living in my brain for nearly a year, so it is incredibly fun to finally free her from those confines and see what she can achieve in her world. I’d like to think she’s off to a fine start. You can find out for yourself when the episode airs in September.
Epic of World Saga is my buddy Kevin’s newest project. Think of it as a modern-day radio serial that blurs genre distinctions, and you’ll get the gist. As a long-time fangirl of 1930s-1950s radio shows, I am super thrilled to be onboard EoWS going forward after the pilot episode.
I’ll be helping out in two capacities, in front of and behind the microphone: co-scriptwriting and voice acting one of the main characters (and an odd villain or two). Working with Kev is always a wonderful, enriching experience; EoWS is sure to be the most fun we’ve ever had. And that is saying a lot, as we’ve been doing this collaboration-thing for 13+ years.
I promise to keep everyone updated on our creative shenanigans. Until next time, please enjoy the pilot episode. Although only a peek into what is coming up, it’s a solo tour-de-force on Kevin’s part.
