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,
