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, a company which stands at the threshold of the 21st century revival of audio entertainment.
During an era of “Bill and Fred’s Excellent Audio Adventures” the duo worked together in developing 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 lost a valiant fight with cancer in spring of 2020 (In Memoriam). Bill’s buoyant spirit, enthusiasm for developing emerging talent, and dedication to the craft of immersive audio storytelling lives on with co-founder Fred Greenhalgh at helm. Today, Dagaz Media is the nexus of a robust team of top-notch vocal performers, sound designers, editors, and other audio professionals here to publishers, brands, app developers, creators, and others unlock the full potential of “movies for the mind.”
