A British games studio is offering an opportunity to more than three thousand video game voice actors in a trial project which could revolutionise the way video games companies seek out game voice talent. The Gamevoices network has offered an unnamed British game development company access to their impressive roster free of charge in the hope that the studio can secure the services of up to five or six game voicing talents.
Gamevoices director John Armstrong commented, “It’s exciting times. We were initially approached by a British studio who were interested in pitching to the Gamevoices network and will trial that over the next couple of months. Since then we’ve had further interest from a Trans-Atlantic studio looking to do something similar and are anticipating a number of other games and animation studios using our service to find voice talent in the near future. It’s a mutually beneficial relationship. Game voice artists know that they are getting a fair deal as there are no barriers to showcasing their talent; currently they can freely upoad audio or video showreels and the studios can take their pick based on the different criteria they require. The studios deal directly with the talent without having to go through an agency.”
The Gamevoices network hosts a wide range of talent featuring some of the biggest names in the industry including Charles Martinet (Super Mario), Adam Howden (Anders in Dragon Age and also Tintin in the video game), Zach Hanks (Captain Macmillan – Call of Duty) and many more.
