In October 2010, I founded WTBU’s Radio Performance Department. Our inaugural performance was a show that I had been writing for over a year called Undead End. Inspired by Orson Welles’ 1938 Performance of War of the Worlds, Undead End was a radio drama that utilized the 21st century media landscape to create an immersive and interactive storytelling experience. We used viral, guerilla, street performance, and other media to supplement the story; however, the main narrative unfolded via radio. The show brought in over 2,000 unique listeners to WTBU in less than a month and that number grows daily. Undead End is syndicated and aired on WZBC Boston two months after its original airdate on WTBU. Below is a Prezi presentation on the entire project. Enjoy.
