New Member Spotlight - Dagaz Media

Dagaz Media represents the combined forces of two celebrated Maine-based talents in audio programming, William Dufris (Mind’s Eye Productions) and Fred Greenhalgh (FinalRune Productions). Though William Dufris has passed on, Fred continues Bill's legacy by continuing to produce high-end audio drama content and audiobooks for publishers, streaming services, and podcasting companies (also doing a wee bit of branded content).

Fred is recognized internationally as a pioneer in modern audio drama, in large part due to his on-location recording techniques, which take a film-like approach to field recording and apply them to audio dramas. Credits include Locke & Key, The X-Files: Cold Cases, and The X-Files: Stolen Lives, all for Audible Studios, Expeditionary Force: Homefront for Podium Publishing, and the original podcast series, The Dark Tome.
