About Us

Decades of Professional-Grade
Audio Production Experience

Pocket Universe Productions brings you professional, full-cast "audio movies" adapted from science fiction, fantasy, horror and thriller prose and stage plays, and through the company's AudioComics division, comic books and graphic novels from the biggest and best the publishing industry has to offer.

Founded by Lance Roger Axt and William Dufris, Pocket Universe is one of the few production companies that brings a unique collaborative approach to the medium by working in partnership with independent creators and writers, guiding them through the process of adapting their stories for audio, while never imposing our viewpoint onto their creations. What we offer is nothing less than a second life for a creator’s story, through a medium that will bring that project to the attention of a new audience.

We offer top-notch entertainment, with the best stories from the best writers brought to life by the best actors! Our rich soundscapes, layered effects and music take full-cast audio to whole new level.

In the future, we will be expanding our reach to the worlds of video games, animation, and live stage performance, bringing the same quality found in our full-cast audio productions to the audio components of these forms of entertainment. We invite you to come along with us!

(Please note: Pocket Universe Productions does not produce single-narrator audio books.
Our focus is on productions that employ multiple cast members, most notably audio dramas.)
