Another form of Christian media that I really enjoy besides film is audio. I love learning about new audio dramas, and listening to all the many stories that this form of media creates. A new audio drama is in the works by Adventures in Odyssey co-creator Phil Lollar, called Iliad House. This audio drama tells the story of Jesse Davidson, and the full description reads:
"Fourteen-year-old orphan Jesse Davidson lives with his emotionally-distant and peculiar uncle Christopher Portalis in the Iliad House, a mysterious old mansion on an island off the east coast of the United States.
Just when Jesse is finally getting used to living on the island, he discovers that the old abandoned train he and his friends have been using as a clubhouse for the past year can actually move—through time!
They get caught up in a series of adventures fraught with temporal distortions, political intrigue, secret societies, and supernatural battles, all as they try to cope with the daily pressures and craziness of adolescence.
While traveling through the future and the past, they learn hard truths and secrets about themselves, and that there is forgiveness and redemption available to all who desire it. And, as Jesse and his uncle come to understand each other, Jesse begins to see that there is much more to Iliad House, and to why he and his uncle are there, than anyone realizes."
They have also released a short promo clip giving you an idea for the feel of this exciting new audio drama:
However, in order for this project to come into existence, they need your help to fund Iliad House through Kickstarter, a very popular crowdfunding website. They're trying to raise $100,000 dollars to produce the first season of the show. If you think this will be an exciting project and would like to help out, you can learn more about Iliad House on their Kickstarter page.
This looks like a very exciting new show, and we would love to see it come into existence. Phil Lollar has certainly done a tremendous job working on Adventures in Odyssey, a show that is still running after 26 years, and Iliad House will certainly be an interesting new endeavor for him. If you believe you want to get behind this project, be sure to support them here, and stay tuned as we will bring you more updates on this show, if it is successfully funded.
