In 2019, the revenue generated worldwide by the video games industry was over $110 billion, and the Japanese animation industry alone generated over $11.3 billion (1.2 trillion Japanese Yen) for Japan's economy. With such considerable markets to tailor for, finding a unique character voice actor for every character you create can be critical to a video game, animation or anime's success. That is where Voquent comes in!
The character style is a very diverse and unique style of voice acting. For a voice actor to provide a character's sound, their voice needs to be particularly versatile and able to create a vocal sound that, in most cases, is very different from their natural voice. Some good examples of character acting from voice actors could be some of the characters in the video game World of Warcraft or the lead character voice of Spike Spiegel from Cowboy Bebop.
For some character styles, you may require a soft-spoken, high pitch with an eloquent delivery. For other character styles, you will need a harsh, gravely, low-pitched, authoritative delivery. Some may even have a very unorthodox tone or an emotionally charged tone like angry or playful. This variety is what sets the character style apart from all the others.
Your story's genre and setting will play a massive role in what character styles will attract you to a specific vocal sound or character voice in your animation or video game. High Fantasy, for instance, will have a very diverse character cast, and the character styles will need to match this. Pacing is also a factor of the character style that varies wildly, for older characters may speak slower than a young, vibrant, teenage character.
Something we also offer here at Voquent is a vast directory of different world languages and English-speaking accents. For a character voice, you may want to draw inspiration from other world languages or English accents to form the basis of the character's distinct vocal sound.
We also realise that finding that perfect sound for your character's voice can be a very daunting task, as you will have the precise vocal sound you want to hear. Therefore, you can reach out to us, and we can recommend voice actors that can produce the vocal sounds you need.
