Sometimes working in the established voice over industry can feel like being a part of a secret society. You've got to know the right handshakes, passwords and connections to get anything done. But that model is beginning to crack. In this panel, made up of top shelf indie devs and voice industry professionals, we will explore how indie developers are throwing out the decoder rings and cutting through the red tape to get the voices they want in the games that they make. Are they circumventing the establishment? Is it working? How? Why? All this and more will be exposed through spirited discussions during this can't-miss session.


Having borne witness to the panel's lively revelations and musings over the state of the voice industry and the effect independent games are having on it, the audience will leave questioning the reality of their existence as it pertains to games and voice over.

Intended Audience

This session will be applicable to anyone working on games that have voices in them, as well as voice professionals working, or intending to work in games.
