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.

A lot of the opportunities that come from being here are speaking to other developers who are doing exactly the same thing as you. And there are some good parties – it’s very much a pleasurable work experience!
There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
I really like Develop, I really like the intimacy of it and I love the location.. there’s a good diversity of talks going on so there hasn’t been a time when there’s nothing I want to see.
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.
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.

If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.
Jo Twist, OBE
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.
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.
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
