Now Seeking Community Support via Kickstarter, The REUNION Podcast is about an aging Beatles fan returning to his former communist country to reunite the Beatles cover band of his youth and try to win back his first love he was forced to leave decades ago.
The upcoming REUNION audio drama podcast is a fictional dramatic yet humorous story. It is not so much about the Beatles, but about their fans from the ’60s reuniting in their 60s. It underscores how the Beatles were lifelong inspiration in their fight for freedom and in their everyday lives.
To carry out this project, its creator Oskar Karash, himself an immigrant from the former U.S.S.R., has funded 50% of the cost and is launching a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter for the remaining 50% of the cost, in order to encourage and measure community support and backing.
“After developing The REUNION as a movie script, a novel, and a stage play, I have decided to produce a professional audio drama podcast,” said Oskar Karash, the executive producer, while introducing this podcast to the Kickstarter community. “The podcast format allows to combine dramatic narrative from the novel with lively dialogs by actors. The podcast script is 100% complete and split into 6 episodes 30-45 minutes each. Popular podcast platforms make it easy to include songs from their vast libraries, and this podcast will have lots of interesting music.”
The Kickstarter Campaign is located on the web at:
