With the end of The Fantasy Realm, it is now time to lift the curtain and reveal what goes on backstage. The production of each show was fairly similar.

A Fantasy Realm Tale: The Final Quest – Behind the Scenes Part I

On Wednesday, January 23, the first episode of The Fantasy Realm aired, and it was titled, "The First Quest." It seems only fitting that it ends with "The Final Quest." The final episode really centers around two main ideas: the human imagination and the end of a hero's journey. I started thinking about the final… Continue reading A Fantasy Realm Tale: The Final Quest – Behind the Scenes Part I

A Fantasy Realm Tale: The Planet of Millenia – Behind the Scenes

Of the first nine episodes of the Fantasy Realm, "The Planet of Millenia" was the hardest, and yet it is one of my top favorites, right next to "A Pirate's Life." This story challenged my expectations, my writing impulses, my ability to write to long tracks, and my imposter syndrome. In the end, it became… Continue reading A Fantasy Realm Tale: The Planet of Millenia – Behind the Scenes

A Fantasy Realm Tale: An Evening in Mayve – Behind the Scenes

The origin story behind this tale has many parts. I think I shall start with the most uninteresting part so that I may end with a most captivating ending. Our tale begins back in December when I started writing these tales.

A Fantasy Realm Tale: Bilberry’s Dwelling for Critters – Behind the Scenes

The inspiration for this tale came from many different places, but it was all rooted in one main idea: the protagonist. Often times, my stories focus on you, the traveler, and that's how it should be. These are your adventures. However, I wanted to find a way to write a character arc into a story.… Continue reading A Fantasy Realm Tale: Bilberry’s Dwelling for Critters – Behind the Scenes

A Fantasy Realm Tale: Bone Country – Behind The Scenes

The whole purpose of this radio show was to force me to write creatively. I often find myself putting my passion on the backburner, because college kind of forces you to, but it always made me very sad. So, I wanted an excuse to write whatever I wanted throughout the semester. The Fantasy Realm has… Continue reading A Fantasy Realm Tale: Bone Country – Behind The Scenes

A Fantasy Realm Tale: The Metropolis of Magic – Behind the Scenes

I did not expect this story to become one of my favorites, and yet it absolutely did. The inspiration behind this story came from the very first track of the playlist (not including the intro music for the show) which was "Winter" by Paul Halley. It's actually from a short film where I heard this… Continue reading A Fantasy Realm Tale: The Metropolis of Magic – Behind the Scenes
