June 15, 2021

Shane Salk is an award-winning audio producer. Shane co-created and produced the first audio drama of its kind to be distributed by Internet podcasting: a weekly adventure series performed with a full cast, sound effects, and music. "We’re Alive: A Story of Survival" launched in May 2009, to date it has over 200 million downloads. Salk is recognized and quoted in "The Radio Drama Handbook" (2011), a textbook and report of an academic research study.

Salk’s audio drama adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol was released simultaneously in English and Spanish, by Blackstone Audio on CD and by download. Produced and sound designed by Salk, it stars Maurice LaMarche, Rob Paulson (Emmy Award-winning voice actors), Neil Flynn, Robbie Rist, Ruben Garfias, and Alex Fernandez, just to name a few. It received the Parents’ Choice Award for Story Telling in 2012.

Salk’s other credits as a producer, director, and sound designer of audio productions range from a sitcom series on LA Talk Radio to a fantasy/action pilot starring Emmy Award winner Michael Emerson (Lost, Person of Interest), to original short stories and pilot episodes for children’s shows, serial action/adventure, mystery and comedy shows. In the video realm, Salk has produced short films and a web video series that has appeared in several festivals around the country.  He is sought after by producers of both audio and video projects because of his willingness to provide voluntary consultation. Initially trained as an actor (Chapman University, BFA), Salk has appeared in several dozen stages, screen and voiceover/audio roles. Shane also originated the role of Genie in the Disney Cruise Line’s production of Aladdin.
