More about casting Voice Actors for Games
A brief description of the characters background, their motivations and their accent are important to include in your descriptions. Along with any reference material e.g. videos on YouTube with links to characters you like.
Of course, if you’re open to suggestions and not yet 100% fixed on a specific ‘sound’ make it clear to the voice actor agency what range they have to play with.
It’s rare that a writer or director doesn’t already have a fixed idea about how the character speaks because when they’ve been imagining the voice in their heads for months or years before casting begins! How flexible are you really about the style of voice? Be clear.

The process used to find voice actors for games and animations will be influenced by your budget. If you have a big budget you may employ a casting agency to take on much of the work. They can speak to high status actor agents and negotiate deals on your behalf. If you’re an indie game developer or film maker this probably isn’t an option and this is why at Voquent we offer a FREE casting service.
We’re passionate about character voices and we love video games.
