Now, the gang has split up, and we get to follow Erin, Brandon, and Mike. Here are some fun facts about production!
- In the first cut of this episode, Brandon’s mic was going to have a lower quality than Seth’s mic. But the white noise and scratches became too distracting
- In our scripts, we refer to the monsters as simply subject one and subject two, but their actual designations are currently unknown! Ooooh!
- The scene in which the gang explores the cells was our jab at the genre, the audience and characters both know that it’s dangerous, yet they continue in anyway.
- Our goal was to keep the description of the monster intentionally vague. We strongly believe that the monsters you can’t fully see, are the scariest. It’s a trick we learned from listening to The Deep Vault! One of our favorite shows!
- The soundscape of the bunker is by far my favorite. The old doors, tiles, filing cabinets, and clunky computers are all pretty unique!
- I don’t remember writing most of this episode
- An earlier version of the monster in this episode had sonic abilities. It would scream causing temporary electronic distortion and disabling the characters. While a sonic screech would have been cool, I much prefer the current version of the monster.
- I can’t remember if it was my idea, or Larissa’s, but one of us decided to be cruel enough to have not only a week long hiatus but to come back with a spin-off episode. Sorry guys!
- Not episode specific, but I don’t think I’ve mentioned it yet- Its Teeth donated his entire discography for our show. I selected a few of my favorite songs, like Watching the Comets Fall and Vision Circles, but in the end, No Apostrophe just felt right.
- Extra fun fact, No Apostrophe was created when I was around 10 years old. (I turn 20 at the end of July)
That’s all for this episode! Tune in tomorrow for our look back on Episode 5: No Clarity, Only Shadows.
