I am working on an interactive audio drama, so I was thinking of spectacle this week. Specifically, I was thinking of how its tools can help us create works that are timely and thematically important, while providing a point of entry for a general audience. Does the magic and wonder help us tell difficult stories? I liked thinking out loud about this. More to come on spectacle intersecting with theme. A few bits of content I talk about:
- Scary Stories Documentary on Tubi: https://tubitv.com/movies/516691/scary-stories
- Lovecraft Country: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eEvK1Zwi9XY
