Morla Gorrondona (voice actor) and Stephen Hodde (voice director) discuss breaking with the traditional actor/director/developer relationship construct, and the process and collaborative qualities they developed throughout Moss, Moss: Twilight Garden, and Moss: Book II that created an environment conducive to an emotionally resonant voice performance.
Learn the principles for effective collaboration and creative partnership, how to connect with and understand your actor, prepare performance through script analysis, character development through vocal technique, how and why to rehearse, and strategies for the day of recording. Morla and Stephen will also share opportunities for improvement based on learnings from Moss & Moss: Book II.
Attendees will receive guidance on how to build a highly functioning working relationship between actor, director, writer, and game studio in service of preparing a compelling voice performance.
This is for anyone involved in the voice performance pipeline or works with actors will benefit from the specifics of this talk. More broadly, the skills and approaches in this talk will directly transfer to anyone who has asked: "How do I create an environment for people to do their best work?"
