Oscar-winning writer and actress Rachel Shenton and Oscar-winning director Chris Overton are best known from the world of film, after the global success of their 2018 short The Silent Child.

At Act On This we're HUGE advocates of actors creating their own films, just like Rachel and Chris - BUT... we also know how overwhelming that prospect can be.

Which is why this feature focuses on the far less daunting world of AUDIO drama!

In this 2 HOUR member-only mastermind, we dive deep into Rachel and Chris' first audio drama Gladstone Girls, producer Bryony Pulizzi walks us through the ENTIRE creative process, the team share their best tips for turning YOUR ideas into audio dramas - and members of Act On This jump on camera for some 1-2-1 coaching too!

During the broadcast, we discuss:

  • Chris & Rachel's production company 'Slick Films'.
  • Their 2018 Oscar win for 'The Silent Child'.
  • How Bryony came aboard the team as a producer.
  • Why audio drama - and why NOW?
