Stephane Cornicard started working for video games when video games learned to speak. Some twenty years ago, he worked on the initial Final Fantasy and last week, he voiced their latest trailer. Stephan has contributed to over 400 titles, including Dark Soul, Total War, Fable, Primal, Lara Croft, Syphon Filter, Metal Gear, Spyro the Dragon, Colony Wars, Medievil, etc. He runs acting and directing workshops for the Actor’s Centre London, British Equity, the Voice Over Network and the French Ministry of Education. He believes that genre snobbery should play no part in an actor’s life and has happily experienced Film, TV, Theatre, Mocap and voice acting in equal measure because a good script is a good script. He is available for work on www.TheVoiceLikeChocolate.com.
How do you get actors to give you the best audition sides? How do you coax the best performance? How do you communicate effectively to ensure that they perform how you want them to perform? How do you ensure that the audition sides reflect the true value of each voice actor? This talk will draw on the various methods of actor training to develop a common language, a common vision of the character and save studio time and money. Fun, fast, challenging and informative.

Develop is a very important place – it’s one of the few developer focussed conferences we have in Europe and that makes it very valuable.
By coming to Develop what you get is the opportunity to network like you can’t in any other situation. Everyone knows everyone and it’s such a wonderful community feel.
There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
Develop:Brighton’s a great conference. It’s got a spread of people from all parts of the games industry talking about such a wide range of topics.
There really is a huge mix of people at Develop - loads of peers that you can learn from and the perfect blend of every element of game development as well.
Develop always gets put in the diary. There are many reasons to be here, not just the talks, but the networking, people exchanging ideas about where the industry is right now and where it’s going to. It’s pretty essential to be here I think.

There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
We are so lucky to have Develop here in the UK. It’s a unique event where you can come and discover new things with people who care passionately about video games. It’s a sea full of new ideas.
I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
Building games is hard and it’s taxing physically, mentally and emotionally. So being around a community that understands that is great – there’s a comraderie here.
There are many ways you can be part of Develop:Brighton 2018 - including speaking in the conference, taking a booth in the Expo or becoming a sponsor.Find out more
