About FMP...

Forward Momentum Productions is a fan organization dedicated to audio drama. What is an Audio Drama you ask? Well, back before television they used to run dramatic programming on radio, leaving it up to the listener to envision the events a group of actors, or maybe just a narrator was reading live. The result is rather like listening to an audiobook. Just as no two people envision a scene in a novel quite the same way, no two people would see a radio drama scene in the same fashion either. This helped give rise to a concept that is the very motto of FMP: "The Cinema of Your Imagination." You don't just listen to our stories, you experience them in a very personal way.

Sounds neat! How do I help?

Check our Auditions down below to see what's in the works. We're always looking for anyone willing to lend a voice or editing assistance. Most times enthusiasm counts for more than vocal talent. Besides, we keep all auditions around, just in case a role comes up you might not have considered. All you need is an Internet connection, a microphone and some free software (we recommend Audacity: free and easy to use).

Do you do original work, or just fan stuff?

As of now, all our projects are fan-work. But we have an original production or two rattling around in the works.

But what about Copyright?

As we said, we're a group of fans. We never accept money for our work, it's done as a labor of love. The stories we work with are, when you boil it down, fanfiction. We don't own Star Wars for instance, but we do Star Wars audio drama. We have no affiliation whatsoever with the companies whose intellectual property we use nor do we claim to. The simple fact is that if your work is COMPLETELY original (no borrowed IPs, music or sfx) then you have full rights to it. But if a single thing isn't your own work, then it's a fan-production and it's better not to claim any rights at all. Put in the best light, what we do is the gray side of legal. We never claim credit for work that is not ours, nor do we want to step on anyone's toes. If a copyright holder feels we've stepped over the line, we will gladly honor their wishes. What we do here is for fun, and love of a dying art form.

So why do it?

Frankly, because it's fun. There's no better feeling than watching a scene you write come together with people's voices. Suddenly the words are alive and the scene is more than just words on a page.

Any other questions? You can reach us here.

Thank you for your interest in FMP.

Audio Dramas

Think of them as old-fashioned radio shows like Superman, the Lone Ranger, or Little Orphan Annie where a full cast takes you through a story brought to life with music and sound effects, using the power of your own imagination. Our productions are made by fans, for fans. This is entirely a labor of love. So relax, close your eyes and enjoy the show...

 

 

Sea of StarsSet fifteen years after the movie "Final Yamato" Sea of Stars tells the story of a resurrected battleship Argo, and it's brave young crew.

Based on the classic anime "Star Blazers" (originally titled Space Cruiser Yamato in Japan), Sea of Stars is the second project from Forward Momentum. It was a finalist for the 2010 Parsec Award for short-form audio drama. The series spans twelve episodes and two special 'prequel' episodes to bring even new listeners up to speed on this fascinating, and epic adventure.

 

KotOR: OutcastsKnights of the Old Republic: Outcasts is the story of Kara Tao Vanden and the crew of the light freighter, Wanderer. When Kara finds her parents murdered for her long-dead Grandmother's secret stash of Sith artifacts, she must embark on a journey to find the truth of her family. She must not only stay one step ahead of the evil Lord Venaar and his Sith minions, but also a Jedi Council who seems to know more about her secret than anyone!

The first project from Forward Momentum, Outcasts is a seven-part epic set thousands of years before the time of the Star Wars films.

Bubblegum
CrisisThe year is 2047, and the global city of Megatokyo has risen from the ashes of a devastating earthquake a decade previous.

An international conglomerate of companies, a titan of commerce made the restoration of Tokyo its crowning jewel. The Global Economic Network Of Mankind, or the Genom Corporation, as it was better known, brought forth a staggering change upon the ruined streets, and fallen towers. Not all those who labored under the umbrella of Genom, were human. Cybernetic Androids, beings of steel and synthetic protein rebuilt the city, brick by brick and block upon block.

Of course, the story does not end there. Humanity didn't achieve a second Eden. While the new city of Megatokyo arose on the grave of the old city, many were left to rot in the tomb.

For over a decade, this has continued, lurching forward into a new future...

Based on the classic anime series of the same name, Bubblegum Crisis is a fan-made audio drama chronicling the adventures of high tech band of armored vigilantes, the Knight Sabers.

Enjoy your twenty or minutes as Dev the Duct Tape Bandit drags you through news about FMP projects, a few tips and tricks that are surprisingly useful to the audio-dramatist, and then we'll hang out around the water cooler for whatever is on Dev's mind (since we kinda doubt there's anything IN it...)

Forward March had no set release schedule, and has since ceased production.
