Finding the right voice for your project can be a difficult task. With so many creative and talented actors out there it can be tough to locate the right one, which is why the voice casting process is an important step in any type of production.
At Resnick Interactive Group we put an emphasis on the voice casting process since we know that finding the right talent for each role will greatly increase the quality of the final product. The first phase of our process is putting together small selections of script for each character along with descriptions for the actors. These are called “sides”. Sometimes our clients will have their own which they want to use, but in the event that they don’t, it’s easy for us to create them.
The second step in voice casting is the actual audition process. With the means of current technology, the most popular way to receive auditions is over the internet. Actors can record their auditions at home and then deliver them online. This allows us to hear results from a large pool of talent in a short amount of time. The downside to this is that we can’t have a director or producer coaching the audition and can have a difficult time seeing if an actor has the ability to stay in character.
A more traditional way of doing auditions is to run them in person, which usually takes place at a recording studio. While taking longer since we only have the ability to see one person at a time, we do however gain the ability to direct an audition. This can help us massage an actor into the role if they seem to be close to what the part needs.
Once the auditions have been completed, the only thing left to do is choose an actor for each part. While the decisions are always left to the client, we do offer them our notes from the auditions. Based on our experience with the voice casting process, our clients typically find our notes extremely helpful in their decision making process.
With our years of experience and relationships with many talent agencies and actors in Los Angeles we’re happy to help you find the perfect match for your project. Just let us know what you’re looking for and let us handle the rest!
