This week we ran one feature per day about acting in video games.
We covered topics such as the distinction between VO and performance capture, stunt performers, mocap, and vocal strain. We reached out to our friends in the industry for insider insight, speaking to actors, directors, casting agents, and more.
The idea behind this was to demystify what is quite a secretive industry, to highlight some of the issues and misconceptions actors face. Hopefully you will find the articles entertaining as well!
