About

What’s this all about then?

Let’s Not Fallout is a brand-new 13-episode audio comedy series set in a post-apocalyptic 1960s:

In October 1962, planet Earth was destroyed.

Which was inconvenient.

On the day of the nuclear holocaust, a small group of five regular and unremarkable people found themselves safely contained from the Armageddon inside the dingy and largely useless submarine HMS Taciturn.

Upon rationalising the situation, the crew did what any small group of survivors would do. Bumble around the oceans stumbling across adventure and excitement.

This is the world of Let’s Not Fallout.

A world where surviving with each other in a remote and pressurised environment is as much a struggle as dealing with irradiated mutant animals, cannibals, dragons, fish-people, and the evil genius Dreadnought Fortuna.

Let’s Not Fallout is a dystopian comedy about survival. Not in the typical literal meaning, but instead about surviving with others and with yourself. It’s about loss, insecurity, loneliness, and trust.

The crew of the HMS Taciturn have problems. That’s putting it lightly. There’s the captain held captive by his own bravado. The second-in-command, hiding an immense secret. The three stowaways; a man desperate to prove his worth, a brave-faced woman struggling with the grief of having lost everything, and her sister – a shy and anxious woman who’s scared to say she prefers it now.

Let’s Not Fallout explores these issues. The episodes consistently revolve around the struggle to adapt to the newly-ended Earth. It focuses – as the title implies – on the difficulties with getting on with one another, a group forced by circumstance into unending cohabitation. At its core there are personal themes about the real struggles that everyone faces in their life.

But that’s not to say it’s not fun. Let’s Not Fallout is wacky, vibrant, and wonderful. In the deeply unique environment of an alternate-history post-worldwide-nuclear-holocaust 1962. Sailing around in their clunky submarine, the crew of the HMS Taciturn come across many entertaining and ridiculous events and scenarios for which they are utterly unprepared. The tone deliberately balances the wild nonsense of this new world with the aforementioned character complexities creating a fully realised world with a crew worth caring about.

That sounds pretty cool actually, so who are you guys?

We are Spilt Coffee Productions; a quartet of creative individuals whose passion is creating audio dramas, comedies, & podcasts. The four of us are graduates from Bournemouth University. We have been working together since the Summer of 2016 and have, since then, released multiple award-nominated and award-winning audio productions.

Our projects have each been varied and unique – we have made an absurdist comedy about warring window cleaners, a chilling horror set on a spaceship in the distant future, a Shakespearian-style epic set in Feudal Japan, and a three-part anthology series detailing different aspects of the first world war. We have consistently topped ourselves by making each project more ambitious than its predecessor, and with Let’s Not Fallout, we are continuing that trend.

We are spread out along the South Coast in London and Dorset and with this project we are cooking up something really rather special to succeed all our work on www.spiltcoffeeproductions.co.uk. We have something amazing on our hands, and we need your help to bring it to life.

The Spilt Coffee team at the SRA Awards (2019)

Wow, you’re all amazing! So what’s the money going towards?

I’m glad you asked - £8000 may seem like a lot of money for an audio production, but our plan is fully budgeted and we’ve graciously created the following breakdown:

Studio Hire - £4550

Recording studios are expensive! For the best possible sound design and most efficient location for actors we are recording in London. The studio hire is costly but will ensure the greatest possible product. We will spend multiple days recording – having thirteen full episodes to record each to its highest possible standard.

Actors - £2000

With five lead characters we’re making sure to cast only the best possible actor for each role. Additionally, for the scale and scope of this series we have an abundance of side-characters each requiring their own acting talent.

Kickstarter - £1050

Much as we’d love it, not all of this money shall be going to our project, with Kickstarter taking an 8-10% fee of the total raised amount. In addition, funding shall be put aside to ensure our Kickstarter Rewards are as good as they possibly can be!

Additional Expenses - £400

This covers costs such as food, travel, and accommodation for our actors and crew. It also pays for artwork and graphic design, music and any additional sound banks required.

Might we expect anything in return? ;)

Why, of course! The full season of Let’s Not Fallout is planned to be released to everyone for free!

But if that’s not enough we’ve got a whole plethora of tasty rewards for backing the project. They are listed in full down the side of the page but for those of you who just love information – we’ll detail a few of them here.

For only £2 your name will be forever etched on our website (www.spiltcoffeeproductions.co.uk) for helping this project see the light of day.

For £5 we can offer early access to the season premiere to listen before everyone else, and for just £10 we’ll offer early access to the whole season!

At £25 you’ll get a signed A3 poster, and a fully-edited digital behind-the-scenes podcast entitled 'Spilling the Coffee Beans'!

We’re also offering physical CDs, a branded USB, a chance to appear in the series, a mug, a t-shirt and an executive producer credit!

You want more information? Check the side-bar.

Should we raise our requested amount we have some stretch goals:

£10,000 – We’ll double the amount of audio producers working on this project! More people means the work is done to a higher standard and finished more quickly!

£12,500 – More episodes! These could include prequels, specials, mini-episode anthology collections, et cetera. The world we have created is huge and sprawling and has potential for so many stories.

£500,000 – We’ll turn it into a TV show. I mean, why not, right?

Risks and challenges

This is a huge project and therefore will invariably present challenges. But we are seasoned audio producers with many a production under our belt. The greatest risk is data corruption, which we can prevent by backing up all the files onto multiple hard drives, and illness or death or fires necessitating our booking more studio time. However, it is our promise that none of these challenges shall prevent the release of this series.
