  • I love the old time radio theatre broadcasts like the original Dragnet, classics from the Golden Age of Radio. I also love creepypastas.

    If I wrote in radio play format, would a group of narrators be interested in trying to make a YouTube channel to distribute these presentations?

    Would other writers be interested in writing Creepypasta Internet Theatre scripts or adapting some of their existing ones?

    • I think this idea would be interesting, but since it would be on YouTube, it should be acted out. Most people watch YouTube now, but I don't know how many would want to listen to something like an old radio program when they could watch it unfolding.

      That's not to say that I don't think the idea would be good. I'd listen to them, but it wouldn't have as big an audience as it would have had when radio programs were as big as they were. The idea is intriguing though.

      I suppose it could find a rather large market though, people do end up putting on YouTube for background noise, and if someone is doing the dishes or something, and listening to the story being told via YouTube, it may draw in people. But it would have an uphill battle to compete with things that could actually be watched.

    • JohnathanNash,

      Since you are the first person to reply, you could be right!

      I think it would be a new thing and somewhat a novelty. There's a gazillion YouTube narrators of creepypastas so that's not new or novel. Maybe the original Creepypasta Internet Theatre would spark a trend that would lead to full scale productions. One way to find out.

    • I LOVE old time radio. The title of this thread reminds me a bit of Lux Radio Theater.

      I think this could possibly work. If it did I would hope that the classics would be adapted.

      Do you mean classics like Poe that are in the public domain or classics of creepypasta? We definitely could do the immortal classics. I'd love to do at least one of the classics I posted, Yuki-Onna. Creepypasta classics really deserve the consent of the author before changing their works, even if we don't legally need it. Many I am sure would love to have their works presented as radio plays and very likely would help us with the scripts.

    • I meant the classic Creepypastas. But doing ones of PD stories would be a nice touch. Many PD stories have already been adapted on various OTR shows.

    • My schedule is about to be free pretty soon and I'll be looking to replenish it. I love the idea and I have always been a big fan of that kind format.

      I believe my editing software I use has an option as well to make it sound like I'm on a radio. I'd be interested in trying a story out on my channel and see where it goes. I'm starting to pick up more subscribers now and my channel is growing faster than I thought it would.

      Now I'm not saying I'm the best narrator by any means but I have improved since day one and I'm up for the task as always.

      If you think I would be good for it, hit me up on it.

    • I think the first step would be to make a suitable script. Honestly, I don't know how. But I am going to learn.

      Right now, I am going to the source of wisdom - Google and YouTube. Here's a download I found that may help.
