Who/What is Ragged Foils?
Ragged Foils Productions was created by Actor, Voice Over Artist and Director Natalie Winter in 2019 with a view to producing a range of work across Audio and Theatre.
Our first project, The Ragged Scratch Podcast, is out now!
You can support the podcast on our Patreon here.
The Ragged Scratch Podcast - Episodes and More!
The Ragged Scratch Podcast is a new writing night… in podcast form! Each season we bring you 12 bite-sized audio dramas over 6 episodes, plus interviews with the creatives involved. Like a chocolate box of audio goodies, we cover a range of genres and styles, so there’s bound to be something each season that you’ll love! Listen on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher and Podbean, or below!
Applications are currently closed, but keep an eye out on our social media pages below for updates on when we are looking for submissions again.
This is currently an unpaid project, but we are looking for funding opportunities (including a Patreon, here!) All parties involved will receive an mp3 copy of the piece they are involved in to use as they wish.
Further details about the recording process can be found on the application forms, if you have any further questions please get in touch.
Submissions should be between 5 and 8 minutes long, written specifically for the audio format and either be a whole piece or a section of a larger piece that stands alone.
You will be allowed a maximum of three actors, so please consider this when writing characters (doubling characters is fine).
Your piece could be any genre - comedy, drama, sci-fi, fantasy, romance, horror... but please keep in mind that any sound effects will have to be sourced or created by the actors, so pieces that are not intrinsically reliant on loads of sound effects are preferred!
We are looking for fresh new work, so please only submit pieces written within the last couple of years, and maximum 1 submissions per writer per season. Anyone submitting more than 1 piece will have all pieces automatically ignored.
Ragged Foils is committed to telling diverse stories, so submissions from writers of all ages, genders, sexualities, races, abilities and ages are encouraged.
Writers will not need to be present at the recording, but are more than welcome!
Directors must be willing to commit to attending the recording day in East London, plus one other rehearsal (either in-person or via Skype etc) with their allocated actors.
Support in sourcing foley and sfx can be provided, but this will mainly be the responsibility of the director.
We are particularly interested in hearing from directors who can also edit audio, but this is not a prerequisite.
Please let us know on the application form if you would be interested in directing multiple pieces (we won't ask you to direct more than 2, due to time commitments and it being an unpaid project)
Voice Actors must be willing to commit to attending the recording day, plus one other rehearsal (either in-person or via Skype etc) with their allocated directors.
Roles available will be dependent on the scripts selected, but we are committed to diverse representation both in the stories told and actors performing.
You may be asked to fill in smaller roles in pieces other than your main piece, so please make sure your portfolios are up to date with samples of your performance range! Actors without voice acting reels on their portfolio cannot be considered.
