NEW SHOWS COMING NEXT YEAR


Launching in SPRING 2021

Muck 4 Brass

Muck 4 Brass is a series of pulpy audio fictions from Leeds based creators. Whether it’s soppy or gruesome, fantastic or horrifying, thrilling or thought provoking it’s all genre based original fictions that are born and bred in Leeds. The intent is pulp but that doesn’t mean that your shiny artistic gem won’t shine out in the muck and perhaps even get you some brass!

If you’re from or you’re based in Leeds and you’ve got a short tale that you’d like to hear published in an audio format then get in touch now. You’ll need to be happy to have it appear in a series alongside other tales of varying quality and perhaps even taste.

Doorways

Doorways is an original urban fairy story set in Leeds using popular genre characters and tropes and taking place during the great Lockdown of 2020. This series is currently in development.

Doorways is interested to hear from actors and musicians for this project

Kakistocracy

The inevitable doomwatch content podcast about our infuriating politics, stress inducing culture wars and general jaw dropping stupidity. You might laugh, you might cry, but hopefully you’ll be listening to it as you’re happily doing something worthwhile that you’ve been inspired to do more of by all this endless hideousness.

Art Works Podcast

Art Works Podcast

I have been working with Leeds based polymath Eleanor Snare on her podcast and I personally think it sounds rather good! It’s called Art Works and we’re four episodes in so far. I am very much looking forward to hearing the rest of these as I work on them. I initially provided some advice to Eleanor at the start of her podcast project and I have been working with her on the editing and mixing of each podcast episode.

Mini Update

Okay friends,

So I have refined my overall business pitch slightly (still a long way to go on that though) and I am working towards updating and redesigning the website, building out my contact list, creating original marketing content and so on and so on…

This business is all just me. It might not look like anything is actually going on from the outside but, I assure you it is. I guess I’m really still just at the germination stage of this seed, so it will take a little while longer before being able to actually notice any green shoots peaking through the soil of the Leeds business landscape.

The site will look better soon, promise! I’m just operating on very little capital atm. Which is fine. No, really it is. (No, really. It’s fine. FINE!) Western Studios will survive, my overheads are low enough. Then again my current only income source is also very low. 😐 I am certainly time-rich though, which is not the same as being motivation-rich. Again, I’m working on motivation too and I know myself well enough to know that as I start to feel more and more like I am actually making some headway with this thing then the more I will feel encouraged to keep going with it and to go harder at it. So, this is just to say to anyone who may be interested enough to look that things are happening here. Really! Just you wait and see. This time next year Rodders, we’ll have a million listeners! ;p
