Sign-ups begin December 15th, 2010.


The Podfic Big Bang is meant to increase the number of long podfics with accompanying cover art (and/or sound effects/music). Podficcers choose a story from any fandom (including original fiction) to record, and then they are matched up with an artist (who designs a story cover for the podfic and/or contributes sound effects/music) and a cheerleader/beta listener ( if possible).
 
Beta listeners/Cheerleaders

Support the podficcers they are matched with by: listening to the rants; offering advice; listening to the podfic and providing reviews, comments, and general squeeing about the recording.

Artists

Read the story the podficcer they are matched with chooses and then make a 300x300 pixel sized cover for it. The cover should include the title of the story, the author’s name, and the podficcers name.

OR

Read the story the podficcer they are matched with chooses (and/or listen to the recorded podfic) and contribute music and/or special effects [songs and effects should be public domain or available under a Creative Commons license, please]. The podficcer should always have the last say in what goes into the recording, so please be willing to engage in a little teamwork!

Podficcers

Record fanfiction or original fiction. For posting purposes, all resulting podfiction will be split into two tiers.

  • First Tier: Has a required word count of 10,000 to 20,000. This still produces podfics that are well over an hour, but requires less time. A good jumping-off point for people who are relatively new to podfic!

  • Second Tier: Has a word count of 20,000 onward.

Attention all Podbangers!!

podbang participants currently fall into three camps:


* smug forward planners who have already submitted their files;

* busy people who have been granted extensions;

* mysterious people who maybe forgot to either ask for an extension or send in their files.

they have all submitted their recordings, which are being prepared for their recipients even as we speak. (we will be updating this list as files are submitted, so you can tell that we got them.)

...you might notice that no mod names appear on the "didn't need an extension" list. /o\ good thing we built in a little wiggle space, right? everybody else -- you know your extension deadlines. <3

if you are one of the people who haven't submitted and didn't get an extension, expect an email from us. we need to know right away if you aren't going to manage to record anything. :)

comments are screened just in case, but we'll unscreen any that aim to congratulate participants who have finished!
