Video games are often very different from other genres of voice acting. The characters usually need to be believable, even if the situations are unbelievable. The writers may or may not know precisely what they want, and it’s often up to the actor and the director to create something on the spot. And, you might have to voice more than one role, which you probably won’t see until the day of the session!
This 2-part workshop prepares actors, from the audition process into those first few minutes of the actual session. Understand why it’s important to create more than one persona, how to use backstories, know (or invent) nuances about the characters, and be prepared to go beyond the two-dimensional caricature. Not to mention being ready to have something completely different thrown at you by the director, writer, or others on the team.
Day one (Friday) will be a short foray where actors will be assigned audition scripts cold, and we’ll quickly work through to develop the role. Actors will then be able to access the full script of their character to have time to prepare for day two (Sunday), which will simulate an actual session, with directs and re-directs. Along the way, we’ll discuss ways to be ready from the time the audition drops in your inbox until you’re on mic with the team.
Whether you’re working in other genres and want to get into video games, or the larger game roles seem to be eluding you, this workshop will help open those doors for you and make you better prepared to land and succeed with video game roles.
