A few days ago, I noticed we had reached 100 plays on Sarah, Plain and Tall. I think some thanks are in order.
In February of 2015, Ichthus Family Productions started out with the simple idea to make an audio drama. We had no hopes of anything big, we just loved audio drama, and wanted to try our hand at making it. We didn’t think very many people would listen to it, just family and a few friends. We decided to do an adaptation of a book that is a family favorite of our’s.
We wrote this on a whim, recorded it with a borrowed copy of Ableton and a borrowed microphone. Ableton wasn’t working for us, so we ended up waiting 3 months for a new, free software to come out. A friend gifted us with a copy of a similar free software, and we were back in business.
By now it was July, and we hoped to have a release date of sometime in September. At this point, after a brain storming session at the dinner table, we came up with the name Ichthus Family Productions. We decided to start a website, but that didn’t happen until the end of October. We all worked really hard, but were still a long way off from the September deadline we hoped for. That deadline got pushed to October 1st, then November, finally we hoped for the beginning of January 2016, but that too got bumped back to February 9th, 2016.
We finally finished Sarah, Plain and Tall and released it on February 9th.
We were so thrilled at the feedback we got so quickly! We started out with the hopes of maybe 20 people listening to it, but, thanks to you guys’ help, it grew so much bigger!
We would like to thank all of you who listened to Sarah, Plain and Tall, but specifically those who listened and told us what they thought.
Thank you to Roy, Tobin, Colton, Nathan, JD, Christopher, HelloItsMello, and Auterey.
We would also like to thank specifically JD Sutter and the team at Audio Theatre Central for their amazing review of Sarah, Plain and Tall, Christopher Green for promoting it, and Auterey for sharing it on his online radio station.
We wouldn’t be doing what we are doing without you guys! Thank you so much for your overwhelming support! God bless you guys!
