Saturday Morning Media Teams Up With Stan Lee’s World of Heroes To Produce New Puppet Webseries – The Ultimate Nerd-ament With Stanley & JAX

Burbank, CA, October 19, 2014 – Saturday Morning Media has signed a deal with Stan Lee’s World of Heroes to create a new, seven episode, web series that will premiere on the Stan Lee’s World of Heroes YouTube channel. The series, The Ultimate Nerd-ament with Stanley & JAX, will attempt to determine the greatest superhero superpower of all time. It’s March Madness meets superheroes in a battle where the fans determine the winner!

Puppet hosts Stanley and JAX will bring their camera crew to Stan Lee’s Comikaze Convention in Los Angeles on October 31 through November 2, 2014. They will be set up in booth number 1703 and will be conducting interviews with comic book and sci-fi fans of all ages asking them which is the best superpower. The fans’ responses will determine which of the top eight superpowers will advance in a single elimination tournament to determine the best superpower of all time!

“We are really excited to be partnering with Stan Lee’s World of Heroes on this project,” says Saturday Morning Media’s Grant Baciocco. “The coolest part about this show is that the fans who attend Comikazie will be the stars of the series. It’s all about them.” Baciocco adds, “We’ve got a really great team assembled to work on this project. Russ Walko of Puppet Garage, who works regularly in Jim Henson’s Creature Shop will be building the puppets and performing on the show. And the show will be directed by David Marquez who has built a career out of producing and directing live events for nationwide television audiences on MavTV and KDOC in Los Angeles.”

HIRING: Audio Editor

HIRING: Audio Editor

I’m currently looking for someone to help with audio editing of Saturday Morning Media’s shows.  The process of writing, recording, editing and producing the shows here on Saturday Morning Media is currently done by one person, me.  I’m hoping to find someone to help with the audio editing of the shows so that we can release content in a more timely fashion.  Below is the general idea of what I’m looking for.  If this interests you, please feel free to get in touch to discuss further.  Mail your interest to: hello@saturdaymorningmedia.com

What I’m looking for….

REQUIREMENTS

  • Your own computer with Logic Pro (or compatible) installed
  • Knowledge of Logic Pro X or higher
  • Knowledge of audio processing
  • Ability to meet agreed upon deadlines
  • Creative person with a passion for creating high quality, family friendly audio content.  This is a creative position.  Understanding of timing and flow of an audio drama is extremely important.  There will also be some editing of multiple person interviews.
  • Your own high speed internet access.

WORKFLOW

  • You will receive each episode in a Logic X File (either via hard drive if in Southern California or FTP download) along with a script of the episode.  You will also receive all music and sound effects needed for the episode.
  • File will contain all of the audio but the ‘selects’ or ‘best takes’ will be trimmed down for you to assemble them in their proper order according to the script and position in sound effects and music in their proper places within the episode.  You will add fade ins and outs for sound effects and music and do overall sound engineering.
  • You send an mp3 of edited episode in for any notes.  This will only happen once per episode.  There won’t be endless notes back and forth.
  • You make any tweaks as outlined in the notes and you send the master Logic File back (again, via hard drive or FTP) for final edits and publishing.

COMPENSATION

  • $30 per episode completed.  – Now, I know $30 is not a lot of money but it is what I can currently afford to pay.  All Saturday Morning Media content is produced out of my pocket and by the generous support of patrons via the Patreon page that I have set up.  At $30/episode, you’re be the highest paid person at Saturday Morning Media!  Of course, as the shows grow this can be renegotiated.
  • Credit – You will, of course, get credit for every episode you work on
  • CD Compensation – If any episodes you edit are packaged together and released on a CD or via Digital sources like iTunes, you’ll be paid a flat $50 for your participation.  Again as the site grows, this can be renegotiated.

TERMS

  • This is a per episode agreement.  There is no contract.  Either you or I can cancel at any time.

If this interests you, please feel free to get in touch to discuss further.  Mail your interest to: hello@saturdaymorningmedia.com
