Dagaz Media originated with the combination of two Maine-based pioneers in American audio drama, William Dufris (Mind’s Eye Productions) and Fred Greenhalgh (FinalRune Productions).
Greenhalgh and Dufris’s first collaboration was the epic, 13.5 hr location recorded audio adaptation of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s Locke & Key for Audible Studios, followed by their work together as Director and Assistant Director for X-Files: Cold Cases and X-Files: Stolen Lives, also for Audible Studios. Thereafter, they combined the forces of their two respective companies to form Dagaz Media, a company which stands at the threshold of the 21st century revival of audio entertainment.
During an era dubbed “Bill and Fred’s Excellent Audio Adventures” the duo worked with Podium Publishing to develop Expeditionary Force: Homefront, a lavish audio movie based on the franchise by NYT-Bestselling author, Craig Alanson, featuring the talents of RC Bray, Kate Mulgrew, Robert Picardo, and Zachary Quinto, as well as launching their original weird fiction podcast series The Dark Tome.
Tragically, Bill passed on as a result of esophageal cancer in spring of 2020 (In Memoriam). Bill’s buoyant spirit, enthusiasm for developing new talent, and dedication to the craft of immersive audio storytelling lives on with co-founder Fred Greenhalgh.
Fred joined Realm as Senior Producer in Fall 2021, and has since been promote to Head of Production, where he oversees the creation of 20+ original scripted projects annually. At Realm he’s grate to be accelerating the movement for high-end, immersive storytelling using the same ‘north star’ as he founded at Dagaz Media.
