Polish audio Bible production is coming to America

AUDIO Bible super production

Magnús Sannleikur - published on 03/22/21

Hollywood actors will record a one-of-a-kind radio play of the Bible in English.

Created by the well-known Polish actor, producer, and director Krzysztof Czeczot, Audio Bible Super Production has started production of the American version of their one-of-a-kind audio Bible.

The American version was preceded by the Polish version of Audio Bible Super Production, which became the world’s only such ecumenical biblical radio play.

Almost 500 artists and 10,000 extras took part in the over one hundred-hour audiobook.

As a filmmaker, audio producer, and director, I want the Audio Bible to feel like a cinematic audio experience,” Czeczot told Aleteia. “When you close your eyes, you should be in the middle of the story, because the word has power, but also, the word has a space.”

“We were in Jerusalem, we were in the desert, we were on the Dead Sea, we were in Jericho,” he said, recording sounds of crowds, people in the market, animals, etc.

To add to the cinematic effect, the entire production is immersed in the sounds of dedicated commissioned symphonic music.

The project in Poland went viral. About 200,000 people listened to the Audio Bible regularly through the mobile app, CDs, and USB flash drives. Krzysztof Czeczot and his partners plan to repeat this success overseas, this time on a completely different scale.

“One hundred and thirty Hollywood actors, including famous Oscar-winning names, will participate in the American production. One hundred Americans will also join the cast with two people from each US state. The English-language version of the audio Bible will be made in 3D sound technology– it’s the world’s first biblical production as such. The recordings for the radio play take place at the legendary Formosa studio – responsible for, among others, sound for hits like The Revenant, Mad Max, and games such as Call of Duty or Battlefield. Our production will be available on a modern mobile application. “

The project is supported by Marek Zmysłowski, a well-known Polish entrepreneur, co-founder of Jumia Travel, listed on the New York Stock Exchange within the Jumia.com group, and SunRoof – a producer of solar roofs. Marek Maślanka, new key strategic investor, who is the owner of mdm NT sp.z o.o. – a company that is a European leader in the production of roof accessories and the co-founder of the “Polish  Netflix,” TheMuBa portal.

According to Marek Maślanka, “The Audio Bible Super Production is an amazing project as it allows everyone to engage with religious work in a captivating form, which is a multi-character radio play available on a mobile application. We intend to reinvest profits into new language versions, all in the spirit of dialogue and ecumenical unity.”

The American Audio Bible is now available for pre-order with a 50% discount. Polish users, when purchasing, also receive free access to the Polish version for adults and children.
