The Production Process
We planned to record and publish the Roaches Coaches Podcast during the summer months of 2020 while no other shows are in production. We thought we'd have a few rehearsals, then record each episode 'live' in the Menzies Hall over a few Sunday afternoons.
Then, Covid happened. Lockdown happened. Social distancing happened.
And so, we started using Zoom for our read-throughs and rehearsals. It took us a while to get used to but we got there and we had plenty laughs along the way.
But recording the episodes is a different matter. Our studio was designed to take 2 actors at a time, socially distanced of course, and the Production Team in a separate area of the building.
Characters are being recorded individually and then the show is being put together - along with the relevant sound effects and incidental music - afterwards. It's a painstaking process but we're getting there slowly, just like the buses at Roaches Coaches.
