Deep Dive: Exploring Voice Acting in Games

NOTE: Attendees MUST RSVP on Eventbrite here:

Voice acting adds a dimension of realism and relatability to all types of games, from casual puzzle apps to full-scale narratives and engages audiences who may otherwise be difficult to reach. In this interactive Deep Dive voice actress Melanie Ehrlich will show you what you need to know to enhance your projects with good voiceover work including what to look for in selecting voice actors, how to find the right voice talent for your project, rookie mistakes to avoid and how to direct your actors to get the best results. Along with a discussion and Q&A, you'll have the opportunity to direct a professional voice talent in a mock video game voice recording session. If you have a script on which you're currently working, feel free to bring it to hear how it sounds read by a professional voice actor!

Bio: Melanie Ehrlich is a professional actress, voiceover talent, voiceover teacher and director with over 200 voiceover credits to her name. You can learn more about Melanie on her website,

Seats are limited.

    Ah, also! I meant to mention last night that that resources list in the packet I handed out is a semi-private list of resources and my personal recommendations that I maintain for my students and fellow actors who might need various services, such as website design, graphic design, music composition, and more. If you'd like to be considered for inclusion, please shoot me an email with some samples of your work and how you would like to be listed. :)

We simply can't do everything while keeping the quality bar high without charging. Subscribers to our fellowship program get access to our events for free.

    Sorry for being a bit schizo with the RSVP. I've got a naturally-loud, radio announcer's voice so I'm receptive to being recruited as a VO-actor even though I'm not trained at it.
