Shakespeare and the Video Game Adult Summer School

This 5-day course is an opportunity to explore the world of video game voice overs.

Date: 5 August 2019, 10:00 — 9 August 2019, 17:00

This five-day summer school for people aged 18+ is an opportunity to explore the world of video game voice-overs and work in the Royal Conservatoire’s recording studios.

Shakespeare created some of the best proto-type baddies and heroes in theatrical history.  Titus Andronicus is arguably Ares from God of War, Bas -a take on Prospero (The Tempest),  Shao Kahn embodies all the evil scheming of Iago (Othello)  and Aya from Assassins Creed – Origins shares much of Hermione’s (The Winter’s Tale) grit and determination as well as personal story line.

Video games are an increasingly important area of employment for actors. Using a mix of Shakespearean text and video game language, this summer school will introduce you to the world of voice-over for video games, show you how to build the vocal stamina required for back tracks and encourage you to discover your inner hero/villain!

By the end of this course students should have:

Gained an understanding of the protocols, vocabulary & industry expectations in voicing video games

Been introduced to practical techniques designed to strengthen vocal technique and stamina

Undertaken a creative exploration of gaming text through Shakespearean monologues and found video script

Recorded voice samples of the week’s work
