Campfire Radio Theater – “The Dreams of Wolves”

It’s that time of year again to share another episode of Campfire Radio Theater. John’s sound design on this particular episode is absolutely top-notch! Recommended for those who enjoy classic Universal monster movies, history buffs, and howling at the moon.

Composer side note: As easy as it would have been to use a traditional march tune, I opted to write something original and attempt to capture the feel and time of the Civil War drum & fife band. The rest of the score is stripped down with traditional instrumentation with only a couple of small exceptions.

During the Civil War, a small band of Union soldiers seek refuge for the night within the confines of a southern plantation home inhabited by three frightened residents, unaware they are closely stalked by a predatory beast.

Warning: Contains explicit language and frightening situations.

Written, directed, and produced by John Ballentine
