What Voice Actors Need from Game Developers

Thursday 14th July: 14.00 - 14.45Room 1

With special guests and live improv performance, this session gets under the skin of working with voice actors, exploring how voice versus screen actors is analogous to jazz vs orchestral musicians.  Estdale and friends demonstrate how ‘jazz thinking’ can transform and liberate voice recording for optimum results. Find out what actors need from developers to release their full creative potential and maximise their contribution to your project.



  • Ideas for better casting of actors.
  • Ideas for the dialogue performance toolbox.
  • Ideas for how, when, and what to prepare for recording actors.
  • Ideas for getting into the acting 'hell yes!' zone.
