Do you want to voice games?
If so, then give a listen to this presentation at Game Developers Conference in Austin. While it’s geared toward audio directors, any voice talent can pick up a wealth of information from the great DB Cooper and Pat Fraley.
Audio directors have a right to know what to expect from the voice actors that are hired to voice games. The object of this program is to discuss and demonstrate directing techniques actors can easily respond to, scripting that will wring a fuller character from your actor, and audition ideas to ascertain that you’re getting the VO you really need for a part in a game.
Here’s the "takeaway":
Attendees will understand what voice actors can bring to the creative process of writing and audio design for interactive games, and will learn creative techniques for quickly getting a great range of choices for game dialog and other vocal necessities.
