Do you have an idea for a Lord of the Rings podcast series? If so, we want to hear it! We're looking to partner with passionate creators on developing their own series centered around the topics of Tolkien, Middle-earth, LOTR, & The Hobbit.
Our primary goal is to build out a podcast miniseries (10-15 episodes) focused on one of these topics. Based on the idea there may be opportunities to branch this out as its own recurring series.
This opportunity allows creators to focus on creating, instead of all of the additional tasks that are tied to building a show. It also allows us to expand our content library and grow our overall listener reach across our entire network.
Podcasting experience is preferred, but in some instances we have partnered with new talent and trained them on the necessary tasks revolved around running a show.
New Talent - These are people that have an idea that they are passionate about, but have never podcasted before. We will work with them on learning best practices around using sound equipment, episode mapping, editing, marketing, etc.
Seasoned Podcaster - These are individuals that have experience working on a podcast, but don't have the time or resources to handle all of the extra tasks that are tied to growing a show. We're looking to partner with these creators so that they can focus on content and we can help provide support with some of the extra workload. They may benefit from offloading a few tasks, or even learning new skill sets based on our team's expertise.
Costs & Reimbursement
There are no costs on behalf of the creator. If we're working with a new creator we will work on building up a show from scratch. We handle all of the branding, marketing, and hosting that is tied to the launch. We do not offer any set reimbursement for creators as part of this program, but every creator that is active within our network will receive a percentage of any funds that are secured through any brand partnership deals.
