The 10-episode podcast is produced by Storyteller’s Ink Productions. “City of Ghosts” was created and composed by author Carina Green and filmmaker Ryan Patch, directed by Patch and produced by Joan Vo.
“We started with the idea that big cities are not just haunted by ghosts, the privacy that rich and powerful people keep at the expense of everyone else,” Green said. “Ryan and I then began exploring that concept, along with trauma, memory, and family themes. I introduced myself as a comic writer to further engage the main character of Page L.”
Green praised the show’s cast, calling them “extraordinary actors” whose abilities and voices have made them a perfect fit for this versatile drama. I can’t wait for this show at all. ”
The show was completely quarantined across four time zones by sending a complete home audio setup to each actor.
“The Kovid-1 pandemic epidemic certainly changed the way actors were able to collaborate and contribute to the project,” Lundy-Payne said in a statement. “Working on Zoom already gives you the feeling of talking to ghosts, so the whole thing seemed awkward. I’ve learned a lot from working in ‘Ghost City’ – how to record in a Zoom, ghosts are real and political games and municipal corruption that we It affects everyone. “
Patch and Green are both graduates of the screenplay program at the Royal Hallway University in London, where they met. Green will begin publishing later this year with an episode of the novel on Kakao Entertainment’s Tapas.io platform. Patch’s most recent short film, “Regulation,” has starred in more than 25 film festivals and has been acquired by GunPower and Sky’s Dust streaming platform. He was repped by the CAA.
“It was thrilling to collaborate with Kareena to write this,” Patch said. “He brought a beautiful, well-formed character to L’s mentality and an interesting, supernatural journey, where I layered my love for New York and the political and financial adventures.”
