Video Game Voiceover
Videogames are great fun to play but I find them more fun to voice. Finding and working with the right voice for your game character sets the tone of the game and ensures that players interact with the game. This is where I come in and can help you.
I’m Lorraine Ansell, a UK based voiceover artist and I have worked on over 15 games as well as a large number of characters with my warm, fun, characterful voice. I love to bring characters to life and having worked on a few games jams as well, I am able to bring realism to each role. From being a terrified bystander to being the lead in games such as Elemental Flow, I have voiced a whole variety of characters as well as providing emotes and breathing for various projects.
What makes a good VO for video games?
To produce quality game voice audio it’s important to be versatile. The emphasis is not only on being a voice over but more a voice actor. It’s about being able to do a range of character voices, foreign accents and plenty of exerts (grunts, groans and screams), often in one sitting. In many cases one actor may be able to do a number voices, playing a range of characters, all within one video game instalment.
As a bilingual voice over artist I am able to speak fluently in both English and Spanish and I have a knack for accents from further afield. My narration style spans the spectrum from conversational to authoritative and everything in between. Variety is always the spice of life, so it’s important to have a good range of styles to work with. Having a versatile voice enables me to bring depth to a recording and ensure characters sound less two-dimensional.
Let me show you some examples of my work
Over the years, I have collaborated with many gaming clients covering a wide range of gaming voiceover needs. What I particularly love about this job is the variety it brings. I have a popular, versatile voice and have voiced children from as young as 5 years old to old grannies and everything in between. Hyperstellar is a great mobile game and here I am the space computer voice.
In this game I am one of the leads sending love letters for the theme of other worlds. In this one I am the newsreader trying to maintain some order in a world that is a mystery clue game. https://globalgamejam.org/2018/games/glory-mantielda
One of my latest projects is being the main character Clara and the aim is to work on the art of conversation. Can you figure out how to play?
How can I help?
As each game and character has a different story to tell, it means a unique take on that character to deliver an individual tone and emotional intention. I can record the lines that best suit the character making them believable and magical within your game.
