Dream Reality Media

dream-reality-media

Dream Reality Media creates stand-alone & combined projects in film, television, theatre & radio, respectively.

We develop projects that reflect passion & vision while capturing past, present & future popular culture.

Founded by the writer/director/producer Sol B. River to house multi-disciplined projects & amalgamate talent from unique perspectives, originating ideas with a social backbone. Our discipline is our experience. Creative polymath.

For a few years Dream Reality has wanted to embark on a project that would introduce writers to radio drama. The idea of giving those who have never written for radio before the opportunity to learn how to present a piece of work that will eventually air to a live audience is both exciting and daunting.

We want to invite individuals to submit ideas that they are excited about, be it Inner City, out in the countryside, geographically diverse, young and old. If you have a story to tell, let’s hear it; learn how to transcribe it before handing over the dialogue to actors who will transform it.

Experts will run workshops and one to one tutoring will bring the selected writers up to speed until the day of broadcast. This website will develop and grow along with the project so that it will eventually house the writers, the creative team and the productions.

Throughout this project Dream Reality Radio Drama hopes to achieve the unthinkable, dream the impossible, warrant the unwarranted and entice the ears of an audience that might never before have tuned into radio drama.

Dream Reality Radio Drama is proud to be supported by Arts Council England and the Authors Licensing and Collecting Society (ALCS). We are grateful to BBC Radio Leeds who are featuring this project throughout its duration.
