Marc Graue joined the VO Peeps in August to tell us how to create and sustain video game characters
In this session, Marc Graue brought his stable of characters and decades of acting experience to show us firsthand how to be a dynamic talent and bring the most to our video game auditions. He showed us how to perform reads with a variety of takes, emotions, pacing, and volume. We also learned the importance of technically flawless auditions and how to leave a lasting impression on casting directors.
Words of Wisdom:
Always err on the side of going too far, you can always pull back. Carry it further than you think you should. Show them you can get there. - Marc Graue
When you’re doing these auditions, think about pacing and volume. It’s not a commercial so you can take all the time you want. In a session they may ask you to pick up the pace a bit. - Marc Graue
The hardest thing is making it sound like we aren’t reading the lines - even though we are - Marc Graue

"Marc Graue's Video Game workshop was a wealth of knowledge (I took so many notes!) And I gained so much simply from listening to his feedback to the other participants.
