For this cast, I spoke with voice actress and casting director Sally Beaumont about what it’s like to be both a voice actor and lessons learned when it comes to managing the voice acting in a videogame.
We spoke about her background when it comes to voice acting and discussed some of the misconceptions and challenges of being behind the mic. Casting actors is its own unique challenge, and Sally talked about what it’s like to find the voice for a character.
For indie developers, we spoke about some of the things you can do to make it easier for your voice actors, as well as discussing when and when not to use voice acting for a game. We also learned about the awesome power of spite and tips for doing voice acting yourself.
