HOW DID PENDANT PRODUCTIONS COME TO BE?

In late August of 2004, along with a few close friends and family members, I formed Pendant Productions. Pendant is an audio production group dedicated to making radio dramas like the old radio serials of the '30s and '40s, only modernized for today's audiences.

Think of them as movies without the video feed.

And so before you sits the fruits of our labor, for your fun and entertainment.

We're always accepting new members, so if you'd like to join us you're more than welcome. All you need is a computer and a microphone. So thanks for stopping by, and let us know what you think!

We hope that you enjoy our artistic audio endeavors, and that we can provide you with some relaxation and entertainment whenever you need it. Thanks for listening!

CAN I POST CASTING CALLS FOR MY NON-PENDANT PROJECTS TO THE PENDANT MAILING LIST?

People have asked if they can post casting calls for their own personal projects (or projects for other companies they are also part of) to the Pendant mailing list. The answer is both yes and no.

Pendant is not and has never been a general voice acting/radio drama group.

We weren't always the size we are now and we used to have to post casting calls outside of our own group. The good news is there are places designed for exactly that, and that's where we started. And that's where you can start, too.

We suggest you try:

The Voice Acting Alliance

Audio Auditions

If you ARE a present member of Pendant and people know you from discussions and roles in our shows, and you would like to post a casting call for your personal project outside of Pendant, please follow these rules:

1. Your subject line must read:
OFF-TOPIC: NON-PENDANT CASTING CALL

Please keep it in all caps, do not add the show title or any other information to the subject line. This will make it easier for people who are not interested in outside casting calls to easily avoid them. Then they don't get upset, I don't have to deal with complaints, and you don't get anyone angry at you.

2. Do not paste your casting call into the body of the email. Simply link to the casting call wherever else it is posted (on the Voice Acting Alliance message boards, etc)

That's all there is to it.

We're a very easygoing bunch of folks and this is basically the ONLY rule we have on our mailing list (other than... hey, be nice to people).

IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT FOR DIRECTING OR ACTING IN A PENDANT SHOW?

You must be 18 years old to participate in the Pendant director's class or direct a show for us.

You must be 18 years old to act in any Pendant show that is labeled as R-rated. These rating can be seen near the top of any show page, under the newest art.
Currently, our R-rated shows are:
"The Kingery", "The Line", and "Once Upon a Time in Vegas".

Note that Seminar episodes are handled on an episode-by-episode basis. Some episodes may be inappropriate for younger listeners, and will display a notice in the casting call that is for those 18 over only.

These rules are not designed to punish anyone, but to protect the long-term health of Pendant's audio shows and volunteers.

I WOULD LIKE TO HELP MAKE THESE AWESOME PIECES OF AUDIO GOODNESS. HOW CAN I JOIN PENDANT PRODUCTIONS?

We are always looking for new members. If you're interested in just keeping up with our projects or would like to help out (by auditioning for roles or otherwise), please feel free to stop by our Yahoo group and sign up:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/pendant

When applying to join, mention that you followed the link from the website. This is so we know you're a real person and can keep spammers out. Thanks!

We're looking for actors, artists, audio mixers and flash animators. If you'd like to help out, please sign up!

If you're interested in auditioning for roles, all you have to do is follow the instructions posted with the casting calls for the roles you'd like to audition for. All auditions are always open to everyone and you can audition for as many roles as you'd like.

Here are some tips on recording lines:

1. You will need a microphone. You can get decent ones for around $10, although many computers seem to come with one type or another these days.

2. You will need a program to record your lines in. Windows Sound Recorder is not a good option.

Audacity is a good program to record your lines in, and it's completely free and is available for both Mac and PC. It doesn't get much better than that.

3. Listen to your lines after recording them. Be sure that you are happy with how they sound and don't be afraid to do them over until you get them the way you want them. Often times I'll record one line four or five times before I get a reading that I'm happy with.

4. Listen for any "breath pops" in the sound file. These are made from your breath hitting the mic and can be next to impossible to remove in the editing process. They most often occur with headsets, where the mic ends up too close to your mouth. If there's a "pop" in the line, you'll need to redo it to get a clean recording. Also try to minimize any echos you might hear and be sure background noise is as ambient as possible (your computer fan is fine, a television or radio, or dog barking is not).

HOW CAN I SUBMIT AN AUDITION TO PENDANT PRODUCTIONS?

All auditions are always open to everyone and you can audition for as many roles as you'd like.

Please record all auditions in Mp3 files, at 44,100hz, 128kbps. Feel free to include two or three takes in each Mp3 file if you want to try a line in a few different ways: with different emotion, emphasis or accents.

Please send the lines without adding any filters or effects and without doing any noise reduction. Our directors do all that later, so we want to hear what you sound like in a pure recording.

Put your finished lines into one zip file for each character and check individual casting call details for the address to send them to.

Casting call results are announced after the deadline in TWIP: This Week In Pendant and the script will be e-mailed to the new cast members.

WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE FOR RECORDING AND SENDING LINES FOR PENDANTPRODUCTIONS?

You've been cast in a role, congratulations! Now what?

Pendant has a standard method for recording/sending lines across ALL our shows.

Please record all lines as Mp3 files, at no less than 44,100hz, 128kbps. Include at least two or three takes (but no more than five!) in each Mp3 file. Less takes means the director might not get the inflection they're looking for and you increase your chances of getting asked for redos. More takes means the director has to spend an indordinate amount of time sifting through your lines to find one, and their time is precious and valuable. There should never be an occasion when you send more than five takes (blooper and outtakes are encouraged, however, and feel free to ad-lib but be sure to do at least a couple clean reads of the line EXACTLY as written).

Also do NOT include comments to the writer about the script, conversations with people in the background, or generally anything else that is not the lines themselves and/or actual bloopers. Please remember that EVERYTHING you send has to be sifted through by the director to find the one take they want to use, and so the longer your files are the more work you're making for them. If you have comments for the writer, by all means email them. I'm sure they'd love to hear from you! But they'll never hear it in your line recordings anyway, so let's not waste the director's time!

When you receive your script, you will notice EVERY LINE in the entire script is numbered. This is to make our directors' lives easier. For example, if you're recording a line from a script for episode 6 of "Sample Show!":

015 JANE DOE
You've crossed the wrong person!

You would record between 2-5 different takes of "You've crossed the wrong person!" IN THE SAME FILE. Do NOT put different takes into different mp3 files, that makes more work for the directors.

Also LISTEN TO YOUR LINES before sending them. If there is a lot of background noise, breath pops, etc, re-record them. If you submit lines that are unusable, not only will the director ask for redos but it may hurt your chances of getting future roles and/or you may have to be recast.

DO NOT CLEAN or otherwise process your lines, we need you to turn in your raw recordings.

Please leave a second or two of silence in the file with each line so the director has an ample sample of your background noise for filtering.

When saving your file, name them in the following manner:

Line# CharacterName.mp3

For the above example, the file with ALL takes of the line would be named

015janedoe.mp3

Please use THREE DIGIT numbers, not two, so we can be consistent for all our directors. Also, and this is vital, please be sure the line number comes BEFORE the character name! With all the line numbers on the left, the files line up nicely to make life easy for our directors. If you put the line number at the end of the file name it does them no good and they end up having to rename all your files. More work for our directors equals (rightfully) cranky directors, and you want to keep your directors happy!

Use the same method to record all of your lines in a given script, and then put them all into a zip or rar file. Some email has a maximum filesize allotment. If your zip/rar file is too large to attach, it's fine to make multiple zip files and send them with one per message.

Please do not use download services such as yousendit or mediafire for lines! Just send them directly in email.

Attach the zip or rar file(s) to an email(s) and send it to:

pendantlines@gmail.com

ALL LINES FOR ALL PENDANT SHOWS GO TO THE SAME EMAIL ADDRESS.

The subject line of your email should be written in the following manner:

Show Episode# CharacterName YourName

Following our above example, the subject line here would read:

Sample Show! 6 Jane Doe Pendant Lover

Where "Pendant Lover" is your name. You're a Pendant Lover, right? Of course you are.

If you must send multiple emails with multiple zip/rar files, be sure to add "Part X of Y" in the subject line, and add that
information to the zip/rar filename as well. For example:

Sample6JaneDoePart1of2.zip

You will be given a deadline for your lines, almost always a MONTH away from when you get the script. It is VITAL you meet your deadlines. Missing lines means a director can't assemble any scenes you're in, which puts them behind on work, which puts the entire show behind. And when that stacks up you can get entire shows in danger of missing their release dates.

PLEASE be aware that there are a whole host of people (directors, producers, web staff, promo staff, et al) who all have a lot of work to do that depends on ACTORS being on time. Be conscious of others and that every day you're late you cause problems for them and for the entire show. We understand sometimes people get sick, life happens, etc. We are not unkind or uncaring. Really!

But communication is vital. You MUST let pendantlines know if you need more time. Do not sit in silence and line reminders and requests for lines go unanswered. Respond and keep in contact with pendantlines at all times and everything should be hunky-dory.

Lack of communication as deadlines pass with no lines turned in may result in your role being recast and given to someone else.

Remember that if you meet your deadlines, directors will know you're talented AND reliable. And if a casting decision comes down to two equally talented people who would fit the character very well but one has a track record of misnamed files, breath pops or, above all, severely (and/or repeated) missed deadlines... the reliable, professional actor will win out every time.

WHAT MICROPHONE AND MIC TECHNIQUE SHOULD I USE TO RECORD LINES?

We don't demand that anyone use a particular microphone, as budgets and equipment availability are different for everyone. However, when the actors and directors of Pendant are polled, a few microphones repeatedly get positive mentions.

The Blue Snowball is widely used and highly recommended by the Pendant creatives. As an alternative, the Logitech Desktop USB mic delivers adequate sound. We recommend against headset mics, as they're more likely to pick up a sibilant S, a popped P or unwanted breathing, etc.

If your mic (like the Snowball) offers multiple settings, be sure to put it on unidirectional to cut down any echo. If you're still getting a lot of echo, be sure you're not facing any large, flat surfaces (walls, computer monitors, etc) that might reflect the sound back to the mic. Try putting blankets or pillows behind the mic to further cut down any echo. Many people find putting socks over their mics makes for an excellent pop filter, etc. Although, depending on your voice a sock may not be enough to catch all the essplosives, popping P's and so forth.

What helps even more is not speaking directly into the mic. Instead, speak over the mic, so your breath isn't directed towards where sound is received. (Place the mic under your chin a bit.)

HOW DO I PITCH A SHOW TO PENDANT PRODUCTIONS?

Before pitching a show, it's best to become familiar with writing for Pendant via our anthology show Seminar. Details on writing for Seminar are here:
http://pendantaudio.com/seminar.php#submit

Note that the person who pitches the show is expected to helm it.

The same process is used for pitching an ongoing show and for pitching a limited-run serial/feature.

The following comments are from Pendant's Executive Producer, Jeffrey Bridges:

"To pitch me a show, first simply pitch me the basic idea in a sentence or two. There's no sense in going into a full pitch if it's something I'll pass on right off the bat."

"If I'm intrigued/think it's a good fit for Pendant, I'll ask for a full pitch (characters and info., the full story, etc). At that point I may accept it, ask for changes, discuss problems or pass on it. If it gets accepted at any point, then I ask for a pilot script."

"The pilot script may get accepted, I may ask for changes, discuss problems, pass on it, etc. If *that* gets accepted, then we start talking about future scripts, a director and work on putting the show into production."

"It's a lengthy process, but it works. :)"

Email your pitch to jeffrey@pendantaudio.com

WHAT FORMAT ARE THE PENDANT SCRIPTS IN AND WHAT SOFTWARE SHOULD I USE TO WRITE A SCRIPT?

All Pendant scripts are in Hollywood Screenplay format. We add line numbers for the dialog (and only the dialog). You can see a sample Pendant script here:
"The Kingery", episode 3x12

Also be sure to check out the information on how to submit to our original anthology show, "Seminar".

Bruce Campbell has a simple and clear explanation of screenwriting and screenplay formatting on his site here:
Shun Society, Be a Screenwriter

In this format, one page generally equals one minute of finished audio. This helps everyone involved gauge how long a scene or show will be.

    Bernadette Groves has done a series of videos to help with script formatting.
  1. Scene Headings
  2. SFX Lines
  3. Character Name and Dialogue
  4. Transitions
  5. Numbering
  6. Submitting Your Script
  7. Celtx tutorial

The writers at Pendant use a variety of different software. There isn't a single correct choice. All that matters is that your final script appears correct.

For professional software, there's Movie Magic Screenwriter and Final Draft. Both of these applications run on Macs and PCs, although we suggest Screenwriter on the Mac and Final Draft on Windows. Both of these apps run about $150, however they provide the easiest and least painful experiences.
You can visit their sites here:
Movie Magic Screenwriter
Final Draft

If you like writing in Microsoft Word, both Microsoft and the BBC have screenplay templates that you can use. The BBC template, called ScriptSmart, is hosted at the BBC Writer's Room, which hosts a treasure trove of info on all sorts of writing.
Visit them here:
MS Screenplay Template
BBC writersroom

Pages, a part of Apple's iWork comes with a built-in Screenplay template.
More info is here:
iWork - Pages

Finally, there is one free choice in screenwriting software. Celtx runs on OS X, Windows, and Linux.
A very important note: Celtx has multiple script formats. If you are writing for Pendant, you need to use the "Film" format, and NOT the "Audio Play" format.
More info here:
Celtx

Pendant now also has a group set up for writers to get feedback on their scripts before submitting them to "Seminar" or before pitching new show ideas to the executive producer. Review and discussion of peer scripts is encouraged. You can join it here:
Pendant Write Club

HOW DO I ADD LINE NUMBERS TO THE DIALOG IN A SCRIPT?

In Movie Magic Screenwriter:
Open the "Production" menu, then the "Animation Locking" sub-menu, and select "Lock Dialogue Numbering".
Now, when you add and remove dialog, Screenwriter will automatically update the numbering.

In Final Draft:
Go to Production > Scene Numbers
     On the "Numbers" tab:
          Check the "Add Numbers" box
          In the "Element" drop-down box, select "Character".
     On the "Options" tab:
          Uncheck the "Show numbers on right" box.
     Click "OK".

In Microsoft Word:
Insert > Field > AutoNum (or AutoLegalNum)
Do that for the first one, bold it, then select it and ctrl-c, then ctrl-v your way down the script.
This method has the advantage of automatically adjusting the numbering if you add or delete a line.

In Celtx:
Line numbering must be done by hand.
A very important note: Celtx has multiple script formats. If you are writing for Pendant, you need to use the "Film" format, and NOT the "Audio Play" format.

Back to top


CAN I WRITE A MULTI-PART SERIAL FOR SEMINAR?

No.
We'd like each story in Seminar to stand alone.

If you write multiple stories with characters that recur, this is OK as long as each script is self-contained and doesn't require the listener to have heard any other episodes.

In short, a self-contained sequel or prequel is allowed, but not mini-serials.

If you have a multi-episode story, it would be better to pitch it to our executive producer than attempt to fit it into Seminar.
Information for pitching is in this FAQ:
http://pendantaudio.com/faq.php#pitch

There is an exception for two-part stories if you submit both scripts at the same time, as these can be placed into the same episode of Seminar.

WHY CAN'T I FIND THE NEW EPISODE OF YOUR SHOW IN ITUNES?

The Pendant site is updated every time we have new episodes.
This means changing the web pages and updating the podcast feed
so that iTunes can download the show.

05/28/2012 - Episode 31 of the Genesis Avalon podcast is live!
05/25/2012 - Episode Forty-five of the Seminar podcast is live!
05/21/2012 - Episode 2x14 of THE LINE podcast is live!

Then, everything has been checked and confirmed,
and the episodes are ready to download into iTunes.

Now, here's where things get a bit murky...

On the left-hand side of iTunes, there's a list of "containers."
The top container is Music, and then a few down is Podcasts.
Here, in the Podcasts container is where the episodes are available immediately.

If you click on the Podcasts container,
and then click the "Refresh" button in the lower right corner,
iTunes will grab all of your new podcasts.

Again, this is verified to be working BEFORE any announcement is made.

iTunes also has another container, labeled "iTunes Store."
Please, think of the iTunes Store as something completely separate
from the rest of iTunes (as it really is).

All of our Pendant shows are in the iTunes Store.
However, It can take a day for a new episode to appear in the iTunes Store.

So, again, BIG difference between the Podcasts container in iTunes
(which is working and ready before anyone is alerted),
and the iTunes Store, which updates when Apple gets around to it.

One further point on this.
If you are on an iOS device (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, etc.),
and you click the link to "Get More Episodes" of a podcast,
this does NOT refresh the podcast feed.
It takes you to the iTunes Store (so you'll be hit by Apple's delay).
Sorry, but we can't fix that.
You can go to http://PendantAudio.com
in Safari on your iOS device, and listen to the episode from the show's page.
