Wow! We made an audio version of The X-Files!!
This project was a legendary team-up involving my friends at AudioComics/Pocket Plot (Director William Dufris) with Dirk Maggs Executive Producing and responsible for adapting the IDW Comics written by Joe Harris for the audio format.
The production was unique on a number of levels… Due to the realities of scheduling, celebrity talent (David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, as well as a full roster of co-stars from the original series) were recorded asynchronously, both from each other and the ensemble. Ensuring the production came out at the level of quality it needed to be involved extremely exacting standards from all of the studios we used (over seven in total before this bad boy was complete!) such as consistent equipment (Neumann U-87) and utilizing advanced dialogue matching tools offered by Izotope RX.
This fully fledged ‘audio movie’ came out to rave reviews and high acclaim, with many fans noting it felt like the ‘old school’ X-Files, full of monster-of-the-week episodes, mythology building, and of course the enigmatic rapport of Scully and Mulder. We want to believe!
