Video Game Voice Overs: Ryan Stephenson for Multiple Characters
As you know, casting the dozens, if not hundreds of video game characters with just the right voice is no easy task. Each character has his or her distinct personality, along with extremely specific voice requirement to match. The more advanced video games can have upwards of 500 different characters, but your voice over budget for the project may allow no more than 50. And that’s being generous.
The best way to cast for the roles is to start with your most important characters. You want to suit them up with skilled voice over actors who can take on one of the leads as well as multiple other roles.
Ryan Stephenson voice overs is the one to pick. His powerful voice gives video game lead characters the depth and dominance they require, while his massive vocal range can accommodate any number of minor or secondary roles.
That means your most dastardly villain is covered, as is a handful of other characters that moan, groan, scream, shriek or otherwise add extra ambiance, storylines and thrills to your action-packed games.
