Join the podficbigbang today!
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).
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.
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.
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!
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.
