This script was originally written as a screenplay for a Star Wars fan film. However, before I could complete the project one of the cast members, a dear friend, passed away. Paul was a huge supporter of my writing and filmmaking efforts, and the part within the story was written specifically for him. I couldn't imagine anyone else but him playing the role on the screen.
In an effort to find a way to honour his memory and bring his character to life, I decided to adapt the script into an audio drama. Paul had a massive collection of radio/audio dramas which he loved to share with me, and so it struck me that he would have approved of this way to tell the story. This new medium allowed me to focus on the story and the characters, bringing them to life through the power of sound and storytelling.
The radio drama is not just a tribute to my friend; it's a testament to the enduring power of friendship and storytelling. It's a reminder that even in the face of loss, we can find new ways to connect and create.
The project is still a work in progress but I will be delighted to share it with everyone once it is completed.
