The collaborative audio drama Mackem Craic saw Jay working in partnership with Sunderland-based writer James Whitman & Theatre Space North East’s Artistic Director Corinne Kilvington. We ran a series of workshops with various schools & community groups, and created this 45-minute audio drama pilot. Mackem Craic was funded by the Cultural Spring & the #Fourteen Fund.
“It feels like something that knows it’s good, and didn’t want to reveal its hand too early.” – Dane Wilkinson, emerging audio producer
From April 2015 to June 2016, Jay produced 25 episodes of 99% Perspiration; aimed at sharing advice across a network of emerging creatives. Chiefly produced as a podcast, each episode was also broadcast on Spark & Radio Hive.
“A highly encouraging insight into the creative industries. 99% Perspiration has a brilliant structure with a variety of voices from all walks of the creative world. It has become my weekly remedy for the mid-week slump. This podcast inspires, informs and innovates and I highly recommend it for amateur and experienced creatives alike.”
