Dagaz Media represents the natural transformation of two celebrated Maine-based talents in audio programming, 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, a company which stands at the threshold of the 21st century revival of audio entertainment.
Fred is best known for pioneering field recording techniques for radio drama and writing/producing his own original work (including award-winning apocalyptic saga The Cleansed), as well as being host of the audio drama anthology podcast Radio Drama Revival for 9 years. Fred lives with his wife and young children in an off-grid house in the woods of Maine.
Bill started his career in audio drama with legendary BBC Director Dirk Maggs in the early 1990s, before starting his own production company. After 15 years in London he returned to the US and has worked extensively on audiobooks and audio dramas since then, including HorrorScopes, Titanium Rain, Starstruck, The Perhapanauts and Molly Danger.
Bill passed in March 2020 after a two year battle with cancer. His legacy and the work of Dagaz continues with co-founder Fred and producer Casey Turner.
Casey Turner is an actor, VO artist and Emmy nominated producer in Portland, Maine. In various producing roles, Casey has worked on documentary specials and series for History Channel, Smithsonian Channel, Animal Planet and PBS. Casey began working in audio as an actor in the audio dramas LOCKE & KEY and X-FILES. She became a regular part of the Dagaz production team after Associate Producing HOMEFRONT featuring Kate Mulgrew and Zachary Quinto.
