The Sojourn is an original Science Fiction Audio Drama produced by Spacedock. The series follows the men and women of the Avalon Expedition as they set out from the Tantalus Star Cluster on a voyage across Extragalactic Space.
This campaign is intended to fund a ten-episode first season of The Sojourn. The series will be released as an Audio Drama for free access on various platforms including YouTube. If we are sufficiently over-funded, we will also produce further Motion Comic Stories in the style of our Pilot Video.
The Sojourn follows a race of humans whose civilization has developed within a tiny collection of Star Systems called the Tantalus Cluster. The Tantalus cluster lies in the intergalactic void, four thousand light years from the perimeter of its parent galaxy, and after centuries of advanced civilization, the cluster’s supply of natural resources and living space are quickly running out.
Trapped in a state of inescapable famine and deprivation, the humans of the Tantalus Cluster have descended into years of civil unrest and violent warfare, but with the development of a revolutionary new technology, there may still be hope for survival.
Our story follows the men and women of the Avalon Expedition, a daring mission launched across the void to find the vital resources and territory needed to save humanity. We’ll delve into the complex motivations and drives of those who volunteered for this dangerous voyage, and explore the many wonders and secrets they’ll uncover on their way.
CHARACTERS AND PERFORMANCES
The Sojourn features a diverse cast of compelling characters, whose personal struggles and journeys make up the central focus of our story.
We have assembled a team of skilled voice actors, who’s performances represent the most crucial element of our project.
With the Sojourn, we hope to create a platform to celebrate Voice Actors and raise awareness of their craft, and we intend to expand our cast and suite of guest stars further still across the season.
