This session presents why working with voice actors remotely, whilst sometimes not ideal, can be a good decision for developers and their projects. The speaker guides attendees through lessons he has learned in planning, preparing and running successful online voice recording sessions.

Based on a working guide that Adam and other colleagues have developed over the course of several projects, attendees learn a framework and ground-rules to use as a foundation for recording sessions over distance, covering: roles and responsibilities in the session, preparation and transmission of media, communication flow and some examples from projects that have inspired and been shaped by this guide.


Attendees gain a useful resource for expanding their voice recording options and repertoire in a world where travel can be problematic. Working with actors over distance carries other benefits, in saving resources and reducing travel needs, as well as gaining access to a wonderful and diverse talent pool otherwise out-of-reach.

Intended Audience

Voice and Sound Designers, Game Designers, Voice Directors, Actors and Casting Agents, Narrative Designers, Writers, Animators, Cinematics, Producers and anyone interested in Voice Production for Games.
