This studio started with a dream. A small one albeit, that grew even beyond our own expectations. After our audio drama listening expanded quite a bit in 2014, I had the desire for voice acting. I was thinking how to get started and had the idea that it would be fun if we could produce something small. So I went into our library and pulled the smallest book off the shelf. Sarah, Plain and Tall. To these novices, we were like, “oh no problem, we’ll figure this out and have it posted in few months.” I laugh now at how naïve we were.
Our desire for perfection pushed us to really learn and excel at what we were doing. Our little project taught us so much. We learned audio production from the ground up. Sarah Grace, who is our producer\audio engineer, continues to strive and learn more and more as time goes on. Instead of using stock sound effects, we recorded most of the sound effects ourselves. And the music was composed in house as well.
Speaking of music, it has always been a passion of our family’s, with singers, pianists, and a guitar player among the siblings, we have played/sang in some capacity for many years always with the desire to record music. Now, with Ichthus we have that ability, and it has become a huge part of what we do here.
All that little history to say that we are so excited that our one-year anniversary has rolled around! We have really been working on this for longer, but Ichthus was officially launched on October 30th, World Audio Drama day in 2015. We have accomplished so much in one year, from releasing our first audio drama and an audio drama skit to starting a second feature length production, as well as releasing 22 songs, starting a podcast, and participating in other projects from the Audio Drama Alliance andPorchlight Family Media.
In honor of this, we have put together a giveaway with the purpose of spreading the word about what we do here. We included some of our top picks for audio drama as well as a physical copy of Sarah, Plain and Tall, and a CD of 7 of our favorite songs. Pleasecheck it out if you haven’t already and enter! You have one more day with the opportunity to win some awesome “prizeage”!
Stay tuned for the announcement of the winner on Monday, Oct. 31st at 3:00 p.m. EST.
