Episode 1 – The Truth

We speak to Jonathan Mitchell, producer of The Truth, at the Hearsay International Audio Arts Festival in Killfinane, Co. Limerick about how he decided to make movies for your ears, his process for recording audio fiction and his responsibility to his listeners.

The Truth makes movies for your ears: short stories that are sometimes dark, sometimes funny, and always intriguing. Each story is different, and usually 10 to 20 minutes long. They take you to unexpected places using only sound.  The series is a completely independent production, and they create their own original stories. Many of their actors perform and teach at Magnet Theater in New York City. Their stories are directed and sound designed by Jonathan Mitchell, who has been making radio for over 20 years.  The Truth is a founding member of Radiotopia from PRX.

Listen on Monday 20th November at 18.00 on RTE Radio 1 Extra.
