For this cast, I sat down with voice actor Jacob Burgess to discuss the work that goes into doing voice acting for a living. We spoke about his background, some thoughts on the SAG-AFTRA strike from a few years ago, and even some tips if you want to pursue your own career.
Today’s Critical Thought shares some administrative news about upcoming talks and suggestions, and discusses public speaking. From the designer side, being able to properly talk to people about your game is an important skill for Indie developers. When it comes to games, we have seen many titles suffer with poor conversations and unrealistic dialogues between characters. While I’m not an expert, I can certainly talk about the importance of being able to present and talk about a topic.
The voice actors’ strike has started, and while it’s too soon to see their impact, I wanted to talk about what they want and why we should support them.
