Late last night I watched the live action SPEED RACER (To my employer – I’m destroyed today). That’s the one – “Go Speed Racer. Go Speed Racer.”
Towards the end, the following line is offered:
SPEED RACER: When I’m in a T-180, I don’t know, everything just makes sense.
Kind of sums up directing radio drama. Working with ensembles of actors, musicians, and sfx artists always produces the following realities:
- Problems with my jobs dissolve when I’m directing;
- Relationship issues don’t really matter when I’m directing; and
- The whole world is perfectly aligned when I’m directing.
For ten years, I’ve had the pleasure of working with the finest voice actors and finest people humanly imaginable. If there’s a better way to create entertainment, please let me know.
Radio works – professionally AND personally.
