Dialogue Performance and Design for Creatures, Monsters and Demons

Thursday 28th October: 12.15 - 13.00 Room 5

Respected UK-based developer Creative Assembly retains a seven-strong team to handle casting, recording, directing and post-production of voice talent. In this session, Principal Dialogue Engineer, Will Tidman, will outline their processes for getting creatively inspired dialogue into noted title Total War: Warhammer. 

He'll discuss the use of game design mechanics, performance characterization and audio processing techniques to create the voices required whilst remaining true to Warhammer lore and forging a distinct identity for each faction – plus maintaining variety and individual identity within a faction where there are multiple characters of the same type. 

Using real-world case studies, he’ll talk through the full pipeline from initial design ideas to collaboration with the design team, and R&D, casting, recording, post production and implementation.
