Game dialogue is one of the final ingredients that breathes life into a video game. The story flows, the gameplay engages, and the characters come to life through memorable VO performances, bringing depth and immersion to the overall experiences. This VO casting & recording primer will give you tools, tips and insights on how to best create the vocal performances you are after. Topics will include: how to fully flesh out characters specs when casting; what to listen to when auditioning; best ways to prep for a recording session; and how to successfully work with voice actors in order to better create, collaborate and experiment with them so you can bring your vision to life in new and exciting ways.
