Do You Know Your Video Game Voice Actors? | LVLSelect

Do You Know Your Video Game Voice Actors?   | LVLSelect | Inside Voiceover—Cutting-edge Insights + Enlightening, Entertaining News for Voiceover Professionals | Scoop.it
The hardcore gamer community, LVLSELECT, created this video, "Do You Know Your Voice Actors?" which challenges other gamers to identify the voices behind some of the most popular and best-reviewed video games, like "Uncharted," and "Assassin's Creed." For being a fan site, they've done a nice job, but it looks they also left some pretty well-known game actors off of the list. Maybe they'll have to do a "Do You Know Your Voice Actors? Part II."

By the way, the narrator is a self-identified "hard core gamer," not a voice actor.

Voiceover Agent's perspective on the Voice Acting Business: Podcast with agent from LA Voice Talent Agency, AVO | The Work: Ep. 14

Voiceover Agent's perspective on the Voice Acting Business: Podcast with agent from LA Voice Talent Agency, AVO | The Work: Ep. 14 | Inside Voiceover—Cutting-edge Insights + Enlightening, Entertaining News for Voiceover Professionals | Scoop.it
Casting director Bonnie Gillespie and crew interview voiceover agent Jermaine Johnson from AVO Voice Talent in LA. Good info and advice for both professional actors looking to break into voiceover; and professional voice talent looking for LA representation. Valuable insights that could save you time, money and aggravation. BTW He also confirms what most of us have already figured out...Demos on CD's are dead.

Please note that interview with Jermaine starts @7:15. Also make sure to listen, until the very end, b/c additional valuable tips are shared after the "end" of Jermaine's interview.

REALLY IMPORTANT NOTE: This podcast is geared to actors who are living and auditioning in LA, so the basic assumption is that their listeners are trained actors and have some professional acting auditioning experience. If you have no prior acting training or experience, you'll need to look for and get high quality on-camera acting and voiceover training first, before you can even think about approaching an LA agency. Otherwise, don't waste their time and yours.

"Hello, Sydney..." Scream: Phone Call From Hell: Meet Voice Actor Roger L. Jackson aka "Ghostface Voice" | Biography.com/"Scream IV" Video

"Hello, Sydney..." Scream:  Phone Call From Hell: Meet Voice Actor Roger L. Jackson aka "Ghostface Voice" | Biography.com/"Scream IV" Video | Inside Voiceover—Cutting-edge Insights + Enlightening, Entertaining News for Voiceover Professionals | Scoop.it
"Hello, Sydney..." C'mon, admit it. Those words still send a little chill down your spine, don't they?

Well, our deeply talented, versatile friend and colleague, Roger L. Jackson, is back...and soon to be scaring the bejeezus out of all of us again in "Scream IV"...

Here's the behind-the-scenes interview featuring Neve Campbell, Wes Craven and Roger himself (in silhouette, naturally), discussing how director Craven kept Roger hidden away from the rest of the cast to keep them unnerved and off-balance when they received mysterious phone calls from "The Voice."

A little additional background not mentioned in the video...Roger was originally cast just to be a "stand-in voice" on set during the shooting of the first Scream movie in Northern California. Wes Craven fully intended to dub someone else voice in later, but Roger's work was so good that he had Drew Barrymore genuinely terrified during their phone exchange, so Wes decided to keep him. The rest, as they say, is cinema history...

We'd also like to thank a couple other friends of InsideVoiceover, voice actors, Chuck Wedge and Kathy Goodin, for calling this video to our attention.

Inside Story/Scream - Phone Call From Hell: "Roger L. Jackson talks about playing the voice of “Ghostface” and making scary phone calls."

The Increasing Importance of Voice acting in video games | The Grumbler

The Increasing Importance of Voice acting in video games  | The Grumbler | Inside Voiceover—Cutting-edge Insights + Enlightening, Entertaining News for Voiceover Professionals | Scoop.it
Good article...truthful, smart observations about the subtle importance of video game acting from the point of view of a non-voice actor/actual end user.

The more that gamers like "Gamecultist" who understand and appreciate good voice acting, expect and demand it from video game producers, the better it will be for both gamers and voice actors.

From "Gamecultist" @The Grumbler.The Grumbler: "Good voice actors help solidify the individuality of a game. Sure, in the beginning you might be thinking “Why does my dad sound so much like Liam Neeson?" and that can be distracting and take away from the experience. But, after a while, the voice talent kicks in and you forget who was cast for the role in the first place. "

Nickelodeon commits to 450 new cartoon episodes. Will this translate into animation voiceover jobs for more voice actors? |New York Daily News | Inside Voiceover—Cutting-edge Insights + Enlightening, Entertaining News for Voiceover Professionals | Scoop.it
Nickelodeon brings back "Saturday morning cartoons" in a big way. Their recently announced jam-packed animation production schedule should translate into lots more opportunities for animation voice actors, too. Contrary to conventional wisdom, most animation directors are open to working with new talent, as long as it's really, really, really good new talent...In other words, why should they take a chance on you when they can hire a proven, reliable talent? You've got to give them a reason to hire you by cutting through with an audition that's strong, compelling and original enough to grab their attention.

NY Daily News: "Nickelodeon will roll out nearly 200 episodes of new animated programming on Saturday mornings in 2012, as part of a larger, three-year commitment to the genre. By the time the three years is up, Nickelodeon will have aired an unprecedented 450 episodes of new animation.
'The stuff that lasts the longest and probably appeals to the broadest audience, really still is animation and always was," says Cyma Zarghami, president of Nickelodeon and the MTVN Kids and Family Group. "Even things like 'Seinfeld' come and go and 'SpongeBob' hangs around.'..."

For the purposes of voice actors who use the program primarily to record and edit auditions, is it absolutely necessary to upgrade? Probably not, but there are some cool new features in the new version, plus the product will be fully supported and updated, whereas the older versions of Audition won't .... Your call.

Voice actor Bill Farmer, best known as the voice of "Goofy"–just one of the many, many characters he voices–was interviewed at the recent "Armageddon Expo," a sci-fi/comics/games/animation convention held in Australia,

During the interview, Bill demonstrates his talents and impressive range; talks about the voiceover profession and how he develops new character voices; but perhaps more important, offers valuable advice to voice actors who would like to follow in his footsteps...

ABC Online (blog): "He was taught some of the craft by the great Daws Butler...He taught Bill that the silly voices were secondary to the acting. So though Bill can do an amazing array of voices, he thinks it's just as important to understand the character and the scene he's in."

If the next video game character you voice bears an uncanny resemblance to you, it may be more than just a coincidence...

Get ready for your close-up...in a recent "Making Of" video released by Rockstar Games, voice actor, Keith Szarabjaka, describes the MotionScan technology that powers LA Noire's innovative facial animation system as "a constant close-up; but it's a close-up from 360 degrees."

EL33TONLINE: "If a videogame is affiliated with Rockstar ("Grand Theft Auto," "Red Dead Redemption"), you can bet on at least one thing: The voice acting contributed to the game by real life performers is going to be best-in-class, top-notch and amazing.

With LA Noire, not only is this voice acting still of the highest quality, but thanks to new technology able to capture the actors’ facial expressions during recording, the performers’ physical acting is also incredible."

On-camera & Voice Actors — Stop Being Your Own Worst Enemy! 5 Ways To Overcome Self-Sabotage | The Brains of Minerva | Inside Voiceover—Cutting-edge Insights + Enlightening, Entertaining News for Voiceover Professionals | Scoop.it
Some very wise advice every actor should heed, from Chicago-based actor/coach, Wendy Braun.

Pay particular attention to # 4: "STOP COMPARING."The author is absolutely right about this being "actor death" I've seen far too many talented actors on the edge of succeeding, blow themselves up because they were unable to let this one go...

Wendy Braun: "A lot of actors...love to blame their agents, casting directors, traffic, and even celebrities for the lack of work/auditions that are coming their way. It’s definitely the easy way out, but it also makes you the victim of your circumstances and makes you feel powerless...The problem is, it perpetuates negativity. You convince yourself you can’t move forward and then gather more evidence from other actors. All this blaming and complaining just makes it easy to stay stuck and helpless."

Talent Zoo: "Studies regarding bias and decision-making, initiated by the 2002 Nobel Prize winning psychologist, Daniel Kahneman, find that the “vividness bias” is one of the most persuasive tools in the communication toolkit. Indeed, studies find that “vividness” will sell what analytical tools won’t. And what is vividness? It’s colorful, animated, lively, exuberant information—the stuff found in a good story. Dull stuff may be equally or even more valuable, but it won’t get the hearing of a good story..."
