Have you ever played a video game and wished you were actually inside it?

Being a magnificent monster, an oddly cute creature, or a wise old witch.

Running through the wild landscape, being free, getting into epic fights with skillfully crafted weapons, magical spells, or just your bare hands.

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a video game voice actor?

Using your voice and body to complete the animation and bring all this to life.

Is it time to start your journey into the wonderful world of video games?

In this course, you will: 

  • Learn from an experienced video games actor
     

  • Understand the different types of games, characters, and worlds
     

  • Find out what your own voice sounds like to others and what characters you'd best be fitted to play
     

  • Learn how to read a written brief to create great characters
     

  • Scream, cackle, and pretend to die in lots of different ways (all strictly professional)
     

  • Learn how motion capture works
     

  • Practice using your body and imagination to create movement for different characters
     

  • Work with real scripts from real productions, playing with different worlds and scenarios
     

  • Meet great people and have so much fun
