Voice-over questions

Post by Solethria » Sun Jun 30, 2019 7:30 pm

Hi, this topic is meant for questions regarding the Voice-over entries topic. This way the team can keep that topic structured.

Please read that topic thoroughly before asking your questions here! We'll try to respond in time, but are also very busy at the moment due to the amazing amount of voice-overs that have been sent!

Thanks.

About the voiceovers - will the voices be edited through software to make it sound more like the particular character? An example being; making Saurons voice more gravely or malevolently ambiguous? Or will the voiceovers be left alone?

Do Azog, Bolg and Sauron's lines have to be exclusively in Black Speech?

Yes at a later stage. Right now it's just about finding the right voices. Later the team will edit the voices accordingly if necessary.

Sauron uses the common tongue in the LOTR trilogy, hence we all know his most famous lines such as "You cannot hide". We are going for this approach. Azog and Bolg speak only the Black Speech, that's why we will take this seriously and come up with most fitting gameplay lines for them at some point, for practice sake the voice actors can now just try to repeat their lines from the movies.

Thanks for the reply. What if no one auditions for a certain character? Will the team do the voices, will they be blank?

With the amount of entries that the team has gotten this seems unlikely. But there will be no blanks, either the team will give it a go themselves or search more specifically for a voice for a certain character. I'm sure if it so happens this all fails, then picking voice files from the movies might become an option if there are somewhat good samples. But again this seems highly unlikely to happen.

Everyone wants to be the Witch-King
No plans to add Beorn?

So do you only want the raw voice lines with no effects like reverb, distortion etc?
