    Hey Anarchist, great work man, I've been listening the last few days and really am enjoying the pace, dialogue, story. Again, great work and thanks for making these audiodramas.

    Really am enjoying the backstories of Deckard especially, very nice voice and dialogue too. This is what Alien-Aliens is all about, to me at least. When the story and dialogue function, things look great.

    I enjoyed those insights. That's so cool.

    Question for you ... give Solara is so laden with Easter Eggs and nods (which I totally love by the way as they don't feel forced or cringey) is Deckard any relation to a beloved Blade Runner who may or may not have been a replicant?

    ;-)

    Just listened to these and you sir are a master of sound. Move over Dirk Maggs! Thanks for your work I look forward to the next installment.

    I'm sure he's safe from me.

    Don't sell yourself short. Original post was on the mark. Your quality of production is on par with anything I've heard from Audible.
    Take a bow to you and your team - you deserve a lot of credit.

    Nah, it's not, but maybe 45% on par. Maybe 45.5%.  :laugh:

    I am my own worst critic by the way.

    Yes you are  ;D
    But take it from someone who's been a professional within the creative industry for almost 30 years ... you and your team have done an outstanding job on this series.

    Thanks.  8)

    The script for Charon has gone out. We're going back to Acheron to uncover all the secrets that are still there. And, yes, we will reference colonial Marines and it's "canon" of Hadley's hope.  ::)

    In the meantime, here's some fun behind the scenes stuff.

    When the Captain said "who kamikazed who?". This was actually my own personal reference to the original ending I had planned of Solara being kamikazed into the gold mines on Plutus. But this was cringe because it was too Deep Imapactish, Stephanie agreed it had to go.

    "Dear lord baby Jesus creator of man and all things good." That's not right, is it? I don't know, but it's what a religious crazy I knew when I was a kid would say.

    I know none of the cast personally, but Stephanie and AJ are friends.

    Solara's registry number is 8122157, it's the Captain's birthday of August 12, 2157. But my birthday is on August 12th. The captain is technically 23, but she's still a teenager because she spent so much time in Cryo, this is why doctor Church calls her a child. I will be 200 years old when the story of Solara begins in October 2180.  ::) Technically Solara happens right around Halloween, 2180. I love Halloween, it's the only thing I look forward to all year.

    "To the money" was a phrase I came up with for another project that I never got made.

    Before Disney bought Fox, I wrote that Taco Bell was in line with Walmart to buy Weyland-Yutani, this reference is made again in Charon. This is of course a demolition man nod. In Charon the main character says Wey-Yu will end up like all the old fast food franchises, bought by Taco Bell for pennies on the dollar.

    Captain Anderson shares the last name of a dear friend of mine, that's why I named her that.

    The characters all have first names of course. John is only John though. Or J-001, his official Weyland-Yutani designation. Deckard is Philip Deckard. His name is also a reference. According to Wikipedia, the word jockey in the English language itself derives from the name John also colloquially used for boy, as cognate to the custom found in many Indo-European languages. John will live up to his name at some point. The kid is called the kid, I never did come up with a name for him. Chief is Chief, didn't come up with a name. And Ramirez is named Ramirez because Highlander was on when I was writing her. The Captain's first name is a mystery, only John and the Chief actually know it which is why the kid asked if he'd tell her, because he doesn't know it.

    Roll Me Away · Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band is a very important song in the series.


    Part 5 preview.

    Fox on the run is played on a cassette tape in part 5. The Captain will ask "why is this tape labelled "awesome mix"?

    The scene it's used in is described as gearing up, with the Captain removing a colonial marines patch and replacing it with a Solara crew patch. The crew then strut "awesomely" to an elevator.

    The Captain tells John a story of a little girl she met on Acheron who had a kinda weird accent sometimes and wouldn't leave her alone with questions about what it was like to live in space. And how she was sorry that little girl was dead now. Who could she possibly be talking about?  :-\

    Part five is the last time we hear from John until the final episode. We won't hear from Deckard until the final episode either.

    You should offer your services to Audible.  Maybe it will mean we get more than 1 audio play per year.  With obviously limited resources, you made something that is comparable to a professionally budgeted production.  I listened to all of it.  It's ace!

    I'm a lot of things, but delusional isn't one of them. I have a better chance at winning a free coke. ;D

    Though we do use the exact same sound effects in some cases. The helmet venting sound effect for example is from alien isolation. I don't have a computer that can run it, but I found all the files for download.

    Me: Hello, Audible,can I make Alien audio dramas for you?

    Audible: No! f**k off.

    Me: Ok.  :'(

     ;D

    @Anarchist86ed: I thought part 4 was the best one yet. I like the way you're handling the elements in play. Without your discussion of the production difficulties, who would have known there was an issue with headphones and so on? I think, you and your cast make a quality product. I expect your experience could have some value toward future endeavors. Maybe you should think about some no-license-needed, original production. It's a longshot, but maybe you could provide the audio portion for some sort of animated project. If you do anything like that and find some success with it, that would be a fine reward :) In the meantime, good work and thanks for making this. I look forward to part 5 (whenever it arrives).

    Maybe you should think about some no-license-needed, original production.

    This originally was. The crew was the same. The ship was also a clunker. They ended up on a mining planet where they found ancient aliens who were fighting each other, one side wanted to unleash a biological weapon to do their fighting for them. Then I realized it was basically Alien anyway.  ::)

    Without your discussion of the production difficulties, who would have known there was an issue with headphones and so on?

    Yep, and I had appendicitis earlier this year which put a halt to to the project.

    Just before I got sick, I April fooled the cast with a fake Fox cease and desist. I don't think AJ ever forgave me.  :laugh: But when I told them they had no idea we even existed all was forgiven.

    It's a longshot, but maybe you could provide the audio portion for some sort of animated project.

    With the budget of a double cheeseburger and small fries at McDonald's, that's not likely to ever happen.

    I guess I don't really understand what you think it is that you are entitled to. People have seemed to enjoy your series; what else are you supposed to get for it? The more views, comments, and accolades you get, the more likely Fox is going to tell you to stop. You aren't going to profit off of this, and if you got close, again, Fox would tell you to stop. Fox is the entity that chooses the artists who work in different mediums on their work, not the fans. Give me an example of a fan-created piece of media in the Alien franchise that Fox loved so much they decided they had to purchases it and start selling it. Have you ever seen the fan-film S.E.E.D? I think it's safe to say that if that movie wasn't purchased by Fox (despite its horrendous sound editing), then anyone can assume that their fan creation will not be picked up in a professional capacity.

    Well, we've been doing it almost a year. Just like my white privilege, it sure is taking a long time to kick in.  :laugh:

    Right...

    Yeah, I literally said the only thing I hope to get out of it now is not getting eaten by a mouse. The powers that be don't even know we exist, and if they did I still don't think they'd care. We're no threat to them whatsoever. Shit, there's a fan film been on youtube for 6 years that was made in 1994 and they don't care. There's a predator fan film on there for 5 years, 14 million views and apparently they don't care. But knowing my luck, they'd come right for me and leave everyone else alone.

    I can't, but anyone who has delusions of that deserves to have their dreams crushed. I personally hope I never hear from them about anything. I've dealt with NDA's and film studio crap. I was under an NDA from 2008 to years later once, and when what I had to keep my mouth shut about finally happened... it wasn't worth it at all.  ::) I almost sold something to a studio in 2008, and it would have been a complete ripoff for me. So if Fox is reading this, which they aren't, please don't sue me! I don't have any money, and I live in a rat infested dump. Just count your mouse money and leave me be.  :laugh:

    Well, like I said if a fan film gets like 15 million views on youtube and they don't give a shit for half a decade.... yeah, they'd still come after me for getting 10 views in a year.  ::)

    The benefits of what you are doing may be instantaneous, or they may take a long time to be felt.  There's no way to tell.  But you definitely now have an awesome body of work that nobody can take away from you.

    Famous business book author Jim Collins once wrote in his book, Good to Great, about the "Flywheel Effect".  A flywheel takes a lot of effort to get going, but once it catches, it is hard to stop.  It's about building momentum through a series of repeated, seemingly small pushes.  They all have an effect.  I can tell you that you definitely have momentum.  It's been a steady build-up.  Now you just have to figure a way to promote it right.

    All I wanted going in was to gain an audience and tell a story.

    Okay, so then it hasn't been a waste of time. You're getting front page promotion of your work on this site's front page, for free, each time you release a new episode. And people are engaging with it and appreciating it.

    And the Corporal is awesome for that. We're grateful. But the reality is even with YouTube I get maybe 50 views, sometimes less. My 700 or so subs never click, never comment. The first part got over a thousand views, thanks to the Corporal, but after that we crashed, like I expected. I could put 3 am in the tags and title the video "we went looking for xenomorphs at 3 am and we all got killed! (Gone wrong!!) And still wouldn't get any views.  :laugh: yes, that's a thing on YouTube, look it up. It's garbage.

    Of course it better be free, my broke ass couldn't even afford to get river of pain to use some of its audio for Deckard.  ;D

    Safe to say it's kind of a waste of time, honestly, but the cast is having fun doing it and at least we now have 2 confirmed fans. All I wanted going in was to gain an audience and tell a story. Never once did I ever expect to gain anything from it, in fact I've told my cast to use it to promote themselves and get what they can from it. All I hope to ever get is no cease and desist from a mouse.  ::)

    At the end of the day, if you and yours are enjoying putting it together, than it's not a waste of time. If you don't enjoy it then that's a different story. I know it can be disheartening to put lots of effort into something and not get much in the way of response - and I really do know what that feels like - but if you're proud with what you've done then that's what matters.

    If you want to reach more people then you or someone has to start pushing the advertising. I think you need a website with a release/listening order that is easy to follow. I think you need to start pushing the Twitter - and with more than just episode releases. Alien pictures, hashtags, previews etc. You need to get yourself on a Facebook page and push it to the active groups. You might not like socials but that's where most attention comes from these days.

    It took me far too long to realise how important social media was and to put them to use purely because I disliked social media. This shit takes work on top of the work you're doing. And it's not an instant thing.

    I enjoy it, till I'm sick of it. Listening to it over and over and over and over again gets on the nerves. 4 was not that much fun to make. It was originally way shorter because of cast real life issues, then Ryan sent his stuff in one day before I was going to release it, which is why chief and Ramirez are post credits.

    I push it everywhere I can, but we get buried less than a day after I post, and no one scrolls down anymore. But as I said, the least effort always gets the attention. Trust me on that.

    Stephanie said the same thing about a website, I tried making one but gave up. It sucked. I might try again.

    While I'm proud of the work, I also hate it because it can be better. As I said, it hurts to make these, and I just can't handle working with earphones to do it, so there are lots of things I don't like when I listen back. But it will all get fixed when I combine it all to one long presentation. Every time I listen back I hear some embarrassing thing I didn't fix because I didn't listen with headphones or earphones. Like when Ramirez says she hates planets, it's way too loud.  ::)

    But the cast, mostly, are always enthusiastic. Graham is WAY too perfectionist. Doing the sing along in dead rock was a pain in the ass, I wanted to tell him it was fine, only 20 people would ever listen to it anyway. But he's a Broadway performer and it's an honor to have him.

    Every week I spend all day on the #AudioDramaSunday hashtag on Twitter promoting. Last week during release, I think I got one like outside of AJ's enthusiastic hearting. Man was that crushing after all that work and not a single comment or heart. But I knew that going in.

    Then I was told in a private message to stop promoting, more popular projects didn't appreciate it.  >:( I won't say how I responded.

    There's a difference between us and them. We don't ask for money. Don't put our work behind a paywall like some do. And we never get snotty with people who listen, unlike some of the people out there. We don't push agendas, like more and more peoplw who do this are. We're just trying to tell stories, not beg for money and make every character "queer". We're here to chew bubble gum and kick ass. But I'm all out of bubble gum and my feet hurt.  ;D

    I need a break, so part 5 isn't coming all that soon. Making 4 of them plus the specials with absolutely no reward whatsoever is kinda taxing.

    Isn't the work itself its own reward?

    Sure. Let's go with that.  ;D

    By reward I don't mean money. We couldn't do it anyway, and we wouldn't get one single penny. For example, there's this other series I listened to with one person doing the voices. Horrible audio quality and horrendous editing and they have far more twitter followers and get mentioned constantly and praised. I listen to pig squeals for hours on end with my tinnitus and can't get a single like on twitter. Seriously, it really, really hurts to even make these and honestly I had to stop using ear phones and sometimes the leveling of audio suffers because of it. Doing the xenomorphs with earphones on wasn't fun, so I didn't.

    But there will be a part 5. And 6. And 7. And... I dunno after that.

    Our spinoff "Charon" will come out before part 5. So will "The Captain", another of our short episodes.

    Could be worse. At least people leave feedback and comments here. There are some of us who have posted projects here that are lucky to get a single comment. So at the end of the day, the only one you can do it for is you. Luckily yours is a group coordinated effort. Some of us do our projects solo. Working with multiple mediums; such as photography, photoshop editing, story writing, etc.

    Appreciate and love your work. Do it for you. Don't do it for anyone else. And you do great work! Most people never get past the conceptual phase. You have managed that and more!

    True enough, but I think I'm 95% of the comments here. Which means I should shut up.  :D

    I need a break, so part 5 isn't coming all that soon. Making 4 of them plus the specials with absolutely no reward whatsoever is kinda taxing.

    I think Solara would be fantastic as a comic book adaptation... ahem hey Dark Horse ;-)

    We tried to enter the fox fan film thing, but the people I talked to about making it were a tad on the shady side, so I never sent a pitch in.

    But, if any artists are out there, hit me up and we'll talk.

    It took me far too long to realise how important social media was and to put them to use purely because I disliked social media. This shit takes work on top of the work you're doing. And it's not an instant thing.

    Okay, so then it hasn't been a waste of time. You're getting front page promotion of your work on this site's front page, for free, each time you release a new episode. And people are engaging with it and appreciating it.

    I need a break, so part 5 isn't coming all that soon. Making 4 of them plus the specials with absolutely no reward whatsoever is kinda taxing.

    Isn't the work itself its own reward?

    Sure. Let's go with that.  ;D

    By reward I don't mean money. We couldn't do it anyway, and we wouldn't get one single penny. For example, there's this other series I listened to with one person doing the voices. Horrible audio quality and horrendous editing and they have far more twitter followers and get mentioned constantly and praised. I listen to pig squeals for hours on end with my tinnitus and can't get a single like on twitter. Seriously, it really, really hurts to even make these and honestly I had to stop using ear phones and sometimes the leveling of audio suffers because of it. Doing the xenomorphs with earphones on wasn't fun, so I didn't.

    Safe to say it's kind of a waste of time, honestly, but the cast is having fun doing it and at least we now have 2 confirmed fans. All I wanted going in was to gain an audience and tell a story. Never once did I ever expect to gain anything from it, in fact I've told my cast to use it to promote themselves and get what they can from it. All I hope to ever get is no cease and desist from a mouse.  ::)

    But there will be a part 5. And 6. And 7. And... I dunno after that.

    Our spinoff "Charon" will come out before part 5. So will "The Captain", another of our short episodes.
