    As some people who go on the Fanfilms board you might remember me and myself_me were planning on making a Red Dwarf fanfilm. Well due to difficulties it had to be scrapped, however we have decided to attempt it as an audio drama. So I was wondering, do any of you have any tips for adapting something that was designed for film to an audio drama?

    You really need to start with adapting the script specifically for audio.

    I'd suggest going here for tips:

    Thanks :).
    Also, I was just messing round with Quicktime Pro just then trying to make opening credits. I have two sound files, one of the narrator saying the cast and the music file. How do I go by getting the music file to be the background music for the opening credits?

    Owen ;)

    EDIT: It doesn't matter now, I was looking through some old discs and found one that contained a trial version of CoolEdit so I tried it with that and it worked wonders :).

    You can also try a program called "Audacity" and "Goldwave". I think both are free.
