SERIES PRODUCTION TEAM





Adele Kirby


Writer, Director, Producer, Editor, Exercise Design


During years of making stuff up for fun and inflicting acts of exercise on people for money, Adele was frequently asked whether, with those two powers combined, exercise could be made entertaining. She was curious herself so decided to find out.





Rasmus Andersen


Composition, Audio Post Production


Ras is a music producer and the lead singer for iconic metal band Diamond Head. He was pulled into AST as an inevitable side effect of dating Adele and is responsible for the high audio production values of the series.

Dan Baune


Composition, Audio Post Production


Dan is a music producer, session musician and guitarist for metal band Monument and fortuitously moved in with Adele and Ras right when they needed post production backup!

Adam Hay


Audio Design


Adam has worked as a video game audio designer for Activision, Disney, Lucasarts, Microsoft, Sony and Warner Brothers and now brilliantly designs all the AST sound effects and ambiences.

APP PRODUCTION TEAM





CYKRA


App and Website Developer


Development agency CYKRA built the app in parallel on iOS and Android with html5, which ensured a hassle free, fast and efficient build and responsive app.

John Michael Allison


Visual Design


John started out on AST by offering to help with any graphic design issues. There were many, plus an app to design, which is now so useable thanks to his many iterations and thoughtful UI.





Alda Rana


Artist


Alda was pulled into AST through Discworld fandom shenanigans with Adele, who kept asking for ‘just ONE more piece of art…’ Suddenly she’d done all the art in the app and is the reason it’s just so beautiful.

CAST





Edward James Beesley


Skyler


Edward came to AST through an emergency late re-cast for Skyler, which involved an extensive audition process to find a replacement who could handle Skyler’s broad range. No small task.





Ian Cooke


Commander Ironside, Flynn


Way before Kickstarter, Ian helped out with a few lines of ‘this gruff commander guy’ for a test episode. Adele adored his mix of Nixon and Optimus Prime and made Ironside a series essential.





Jan Uzzell


Beatrice


Another connection through Discworld fandom, Jan joined AST when Adele was searching for a Beatrice. Though too young by half, she nailed the fine balance of coach-character and cheeky old baggage.





Neil Wease


Thomas, Jock, Narrator, Reynard


Adele first met Neil when he was playing a duck, an obvious segue to playing Thomas. She kept writing out his characters though and having to find him new ones, then guiltily adding more, so now it feels like he plays everyone.





Brendan McCoy


Sergeant Hardman, Seiger


Brendan was also an urgent re-cast. His Hardman is considerably more unhinged than planned and he makes many lines funnier than written. His recordings are an entertaining 70% lines to 30% ‘fuck!’





Adele Kirby


Bay


Adele came to AST with about equal acting, directing, producing and editing experience (viz:a bit here and there 10 years ago at uni) but she was cheap for the production, knew her lines and very easy to call in for pick ups.
