Session Name:

Mad Skillz for Directing Dialogue


The dialog director is so much more than a traffic cop. You're in charge of how the game speaks to the player. You want authenticity, reality, honesty. Or hilarity! So spend a little time at the beginning of a session to get into a groove of success. In this presentation, we'll explore some playful techniques for developing characters, and tricks to help keep your voice actor on track. When you allow time for your actors to break out of the "good-dog" mode of trying to please you, you give them the freedom to breathe life into their characters. It becomes a fully shared adventure; you have a richer recording experience and everyone ends up with great audio.
