Inside the Audiobook Studio

This terrific look inside Full Cast Audio’s production of Eyes like Stars by Lisa Mantchev includes comments from actors, Full Cast founder Bruce Coville, artistic director Daniel Bostick, and more. I love seeing how the cast rehearses, how the script pages are marked, and to see & hear readers morph from actor to character. Lots of interesting nuggets explaining how a title is chosen for audiobook production, how narrators read punctuation and build their character, and how there are no bad hair days for audiobook actors. Be sure to watch Part Two of the Full Cast Audio: A Family of Voices mini-documentary as well!
