Oliver, Zimmer, Molina discussed on The Writers Panel


Listen to. Thank you. I'm afraid Molina. What he calls me, Fred I play Leonard shore. And I only pop in for I think is one at this. Oh to too, but we recorded I lost all track of time. And yeah, that's it. That's me. I'm constant Zimmer. And I think I play Phyllis hoax is that my name. I forgot it was so many characters ago. And what else what else am I saying? We're actually all here in the same room. Well, this is something I'm curious about is before we get into sort of where this all came from and your process in creating the show. I'd like to hear sort of jump ahead and talk about how it was recorded. Had you all met before. Did you sit in a room and do this like what did this look like how did you get involved? Let's start with that is looking at me. The dog to the question is more interesting than mine. No, it was we recorded it pretty much like a radio play. I mean, I was in a room with Joe to do Alston's. I think other actors were in group so one of in Tuesday threes to to do this stuff. But which is actually which was actually very very nice because it felt more like you actually, see the person you were acting with. So we there was some real connections of how he played the scene. So, but very often it happens you record on your own, right? And you know, we has his own sort of its own conventions and sound kind of discipline. But I loved him and JoAnne. I sat either end of a longish table like this one, and we just looked at each other. And just did it and it felt very trying to use in this country of another. It just felt very organic recon natural to do it that way comes across in the show to that. Like there is there is a connection humanity there with. With people in the room. I think there's a there's an energy that exists. Wouldn't would Pat wouldn't be there? If you're on your own. Yeah. I agree. I'm concent-. How did you get involved in this? I well all of our Oliver. Your name is Oliver, right? I mean, I got the, you know, reached out through agents or whatever right and said, hey, do you wanna do this podcast? And I was like what's the podcast, you know, this stuff? No. Of course. I mean, I do, but I have never done one of these true crime non fiction fiction fiction, non fiction true crime. What are you draw the other thing? And so I was fascinated by it. And I was obviously I mean, I was very excited. And so I actually the day. I recorded was the first day I met Oliver, and then we did all of our stuff together. And it was just he, and I and I never met anybody else on the podcast, the I mean, Fred specifically said to my co producer Ryan, I said, I want constants all myself, and it's not creepy. We'll just go. It's a little was totally. One of the percents also make sense to the world that you've created. I mean, I think just to lay things a little bit. We're talking about a story that takes place in two different time periods. Three three tech talk about a lot. No. Tired talk about this show the trickiest part about it is. It takes place in three because you've got the past. You have the found tapes found footage. So you have the tapes from the nineteen fifties at this. Detective you have the present with the podcast host fictional podcasts. Host Sarah Kane who deals with the family members of the detective whose tapes discovered, and then you have the future, which is the fact that the host knows the outcome, but has to bury the lead in order to make it somewhat interesting..
