Bonus Phonic Fiction Fest Entry: Justice Served
Hello friends of Echoes (In) Between! A few weeks ago, we had the honor of participating in the first ever Phonic Fiction Fest! Participants in this festival were required to form teams and then make a self contained horror short in one of three assigned sub-genres, which had to include a specific line of dialogue and a specific sound effect. Our assigned genre was Horror Noir, so we decided to take things in a Cyberpunk direction, ala Blade Runner, and Justice Served is the result.
Our amazing team mates included Emily Inkpen, co-creator of The Dex Legacy, AMC, creator of The Vesta Clinic, and Loretta Chang, an amazingly talented voice artist. The story was conceived of by Jess and Bronson, with help from AMC. Jess then wrote the script in 3 hours, sent it off to everyone for their vocal performances, and then edited the dialogue. Then it was Bronson's turn to put his sound and music wizardry into it and bring it to life before the 48 hour deadline expired!
We were so honored to have been voted Best Horror Noir along with Best Sound Design and Best Original SFX. We also placed second in Acting, Story, Original Music, and Best Overall (for the first place winner in those categories, check out our friends at Packhowl/The Madness of Chartrulean's stellar entry, Emet). If you want to hear all 25 entries, make sure to head over to the Phonic Fiction Fest feed. There's so much brilliance there that it's hard to believe everyone was able to churn out these masterpieces in only 48 hours!
Please enjoy this extra bit of spookiness as a Halloween treat! We'll be back with the trick later today... stay tuned.
